All We Need
Worshiping at the church we've grown to love and spending time with good friends made us realize what we're going to be losing as we move.
Yet the Lord has met us, giving us all we need. The church service yesterday seemed custom-tailored by the Lord for us. Our staff supervisor, Norm Hubbard, was the guest preacher. One of the hymns was "Be Still My Soul". It's eerie melody and right-on lyrics brought tears to my eyes.
Be still my soul: The LORD is on your side.
Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain.
Leave to thy God to order and provide;
In every change, He faithful will remain.
Be still my soul: thy best, thy Heavenly Friend,
Through thorny ways, leads to a joyful end.
Should we have any reason to doubt or worry or fear as we leave Champaign, we only need to recall the verse of the month that Ellie received at that same church service, which couldn't be more timely or relevant.
Please continue to pray for us in this very exciting and very challenging time.
