GOOD REASON FOR TROUBLE
The tests of life are to make, not break us. Trouble may demolish a man’s business but build up his character. The blow at the outward man may be the greatest blessing to the inner man. If God, then, puts or permits anything hard in our lives, be sure the real peril, the real trouble, is that we shall loose if we flinch or rebel.

INVITATION TO HEAVEN
When I enter the beautiful city and the saints all around me appear, I hope that someone will tell me, “It was you who invited me here.”

FROM THE PASTOR'S DESK:
Living a Life of Gratitude
It’s that time again! Thanksgiving is almost here and Christmas is right around the corner. The madness of the holiday season is upon us once again. And there’s nothing worse than a bad attitude that can kill the true spirit of the season. Although this has been a challenging year is so many different ways, we have many practical ways to be grateful for God’s protection and blessings to each of us.
The holidays are a time of reflecting the gratitude we have in our hearts for God, allowing His grace to get us through another year and to carry us on to the year ahead. A spirit of humble gratitude will make the holidays something to look forward to rather than a dreadful marathon that needs to be run to the finish.
There is no doubt that we live in a world filled with evil. Mass shootings, worldwide Christian persecution, and government corruption. It seems that we are powerless to stop it and that the world is simply out of control. And we can be led by frustration and helplessness. But we need to remember that God is still on the throne. He is still in charge of world affairs and He still has a perfect plan for you and me. Our church has seen more miracles, healings and answered prayer this year than ever before … even in the midst of such chaos and evil.
During this holiday season, let's promise not to let ingratitude become our story or cynicism our road block. We need to consistently remind ourselves of God's provision for us and in the lives of our loved ones. When we do, the holidays will become a special time of spiritual joy, personal renewal, and real gratitude. It can be a real challenge to give God daily praise and look for His hand, even when we possess the knowledge of His love and faithfulness. If you find yourself struggling to be grateful this holiday season, the Psalms are a great source to get you back on track. Psalm 100:4-5 says “Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.”
Let the wonder of the season wash over you again. God loves you and me with every measure of His heart, to the extent that He gave us the very best gift: life, wrapped up in the form of His Son. It's this life—the abundant life—that Jesus promised. This is the true spirit of the season. Let’s be humbly grateful.
If I began to count the all of the things that I owe to God, the list would never end. And every moment of life is another gift. Gratitude keeps our hearts humble, it helps us to see everything as a gift from God and helps us to focus our lives on others – versus always thinking of ourselves. Always keep a heart of gratitude – never let it fade away. It changes everything!
-Pastor Tony Cubello
