Encouragement from England
Thu., May. 29. 2014 11:02pm EDT
Here's an encouraging email we got this past week from a pastor in England:
I know it's been tough (going through things myself), but hold onto what you know is true (Jesus) and what you know He has asked you to do (bless people through music)! You cannot stop doing what you know God has called you to do until He (and only He) tells you otherwise.
I know you know this, but like me, I'm sure it helps when people who are in the mist of being blessed by your ministry (as I am and my youth group also are) reminds you of these truths. There may be a change of season coming when God ask you to do things/ministry a bit differently, but you can only obey the last and therefore current word God has given you.
My prayer for the band and myself is that we listen to and hold onto what God is saying and not allow words or situations that discourage us to bring us down (I know I find it hard not to take harsh words or difficult situations to heart) -- Hebrews 12:1-3.
Remain faithful -- God will!
