Word of Encouragement from Candy McLaughlin, Communications Director
If you are a parent, December can be a stressful month. Trying to find the requested present for our children, in our budget, especially if it's a HOT holiday gift, can be trying. And then we have to hide it so we can see their surprised faces when they open their gift. We spend hours trying our best to meet their request because our love for them compels us to do so. If we love our children this much, how much more does God love His children?
"If then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask Him!" Matthew 7:11
What do you need to be asking God for? Faith? Patience? Love for others? He's ready and more than able!
