Sad News

My, what a difference even 24 hours can make! Last night we had a good Bible Study with all of us being reminded that we are called "sons and daughters" of God. That we will enjoy the same inheritance that Christ will enjoy because we are joint heirs with Christ! So there is now no condemnation with God because we are His children who He lavishly poured out His love upon. So with that encouraging thought going to bed, I awoke this morning and felt pretty good and then had Ginny call at about 9:30 am to tell me that Huff Lane School will be closing this fall! I didn't really know what to say. Not only has Ginny worked there for 14 years, and her fellow workers and friends are there, but that is the home for Life Pointe Church, our church, the one we feel can make an eternal difference in the lives and souls of so many people. So it's sad to think we may not have a church home in a few months. We were planning on starting a coffee house ministry this summer and continue with movies so this may be a halt to all of that. This is when we really must trust God for the future. He knows what is best and I must lead with the assurance that God is truly in control. So are "dark times" ahead for Life Pointe Church or is this just the beginning of something much, much better? God knows and so we trust Him for all we need. It is still hard to believe that Huff Lane School will close. Maybe God will change things so we must wait, but meanwhile, we pust on for the high calling that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
