On Sunday, November 26th we welcomed Kim Ickler Nichols to the pulpit. Her message, "Thankful through trials" encouraged us to be thankful, even when faced with tough times.
1. Instead of "Where was God when this was happening?", ask "Who is God?" God is Good! She quoted Natalie Grant, who said before her surgery to remove cancerous tumors from her thyroid, "my outcome does not determine His goodness."
2. What can I gain from this difficult time? Take broken moments and build something new.
3. What can I give? Turn your prison into a pulpit and share God's goodness. God is calling you out of your ashes to paint a story of beauty.
Thankfulness is a choice and a wonderful opportunity to share God's love for us.
