THE REFUGE OF REESEVILLE CHURCH

Psalm 116:17 The sacrifice of thanksgiving.

Greetings to the valued citizens of Reeseville and to all would read this letter. I pray for blessings and grace to each one. We serve a God that answers prayers!

Last month, The Refuge of Reeseville held its’ annual Thanksgiving dinner and celebration. We had one of the most joyful occasions that we have ever had! I would like to thank Reeseville for allowing us to hold this event. I would like to thank all the wonderful souls that attended our service. All the great cooks that prepared the meal for us. And all the help we received in set up and clean up.

Speaking of the help, I would like to especially thank a wonderful and dedicated group of young people here in our own community. Tami DeLisle and the “Teens for Life” group. They came and helped the Refuge put it all together and then clean up afterwards. Rarely do you see anyone work so hard as each one of these did. Thank you Tami and thank you “Teens for Life!” We had a wonderful time, many were fed and blessed and I give thanks to my God, Jesus Christ!

Thanksgiving…more than just one day out of the year…more than just a holiday to stay home from work…more than just a day to eat some of our favorite food…more than just spending time with our loved ones. True Thanksgiving is acknowledging that God is the One who has given to us. Life & Liberty, Home & Family, Peace & Safety. True Thanksgiving comes when we give credit where credit is due.

1Timothy1:17 Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.

It is easy to give thanks when the blessing is right in front of us. When life is finally going our way, when the sun is shining on our picnic, when the paycheck is enough to pay the bills, when everyone returns home safely.

But when all our earthly eyes can see is the mess life has become, the pain in body and heart, the regret of yesterday, thanksgiving comes not so easily. When life seems to have handed us only an unfair chain of events, it is difficult to give thanks. You know what I’m talking about. You’ve been there, I’ve been there, you may even be there now. When it seems that, we        can no longer bear the loneliness, when we can no longer live without what has been taken from us or live with what has been found in us. We don’t seem to have much to be thankful for anymore.         Thanksgiving does become a sacrifice. When I don’t understand any longer what’s happening, and “WHY”?! fills my heart and mind. It takes some work to find something to be thankful for.

Don’t give up! Don’t quit! Don’t give in!

I will encourage you, this is the time when I need rely on my Faith in Jesus Christ more than ever before. That’s when I need to shift my Hope into overdrive. That’s when I need to cry out to my God like I have never done before! And start reminding myself of “what Saith the Lord.” Reminding myself of the Promises like,

Romans 8:18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory yet to come.

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Zechariah 9:12 Turn you to the strong hold, ye prisoners of hope: even today do I declare that I will render double unto thee;

Just because life takes a wrong turn, that doesn’t mean the promises of God are no longer in effect! That doesn’t mean the Bible is no longer true. Quite the contrary. When things are going bad, that is not the time to give up! If your doubts come creeping in, it’s time to doubt your doubts, never His Promises. Never the WORD OF GOD!

My name is Chris Behymer, Pastor of The Refuge Church and I invite you to come and learn of His Promises with us.

Mat 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
