Good Morning February 7

Good Morning, and apologies for missing the last two days of sending out GM. We were caught by the ice storm in the mid Atlantic states that took out power to a good part of Frederick County and many other areas. We got a little chilly but were otherwise fine. Such an event proves just how dependent we’ve become on the outside systems we’ve created. Jesus said that “man does not live by bread alone.” We know that. It is God’s Word of truth that brings us true life. However, such days as we have just had make us realize that we are dependent upon electricity, water, supermarkets, Walmarts, and increasing on the government to sustain our lives. All of these things we take fore granted as a normal part of modern life, but they can be taken away very quickly as we have seen with many disasters that have occurred around the globe. I wish it were not so, but it is. We realize again that there is only one unchangeable source of hope, the Lord Jesus Christ. We may have to suffer various trials in this world we’ve made, but the Lord is still here, and will see us through.
