Musings on God’s Word

Memorizing Scripture and Bible Verses

I’ve been thinking about the past couple of years and the events that have impacted our Brae Road family. Some folk have gone on to glory with our Lord and Saviour. A senior elder was struck down and in fact in a coma for a length of time. Other members have been hit with serious health problems. The chapel had a fire. We’ve had to meet at another facility during reconstruction. Everyone has had to deal with the impact of Covid 19 and all its ramifications. We were also impacted by the passing of people we know that were part of our family in times past. Not to mention the major change relative to Coastal Missions.

It would seem we are in a battle in this world – a spiritual warfare battle, We may not see it, we might forget it’s there, and the enemy would love nothing more than to fill our minds with discouragement and defeat. If you’re a believer who is living like salt and light in a dark world, you won’t go for long without encountering spiritual warfare through obstacles and attacks he will hurl in your direction. Though we can’t stop his cruel attacks, we don’t have to let him win. As Mark would say “God wins” and reminds us in His word to stay aware of Satan’s schemes, to live alert in this world, and to stay close to Him.

In John 16:33 we are reminded by Jesus, Himself that in this life we would experience troubles. We all have and we all will. But don’t fret over not understanding these things. Trust God to see us through.

One of our members reminded me of a hymn we haven’t sung for a while which goes like this:

I am not skilled to understand. What God hath willed, what God Hath planned.
I only know at His right Hand is One who is my Saviour!

I take Him at His word indeed: “Christ died for sinners,” this I read
And in my heart I find a need of Him to be my Saviour!

That He should leave His place on high. And come for sinful man to die,
You count it strange? So once did I, Before I knew my Saviour!

And oh, that He fulfilled may see. The travail of His soul in me,
And with His work contented be, As I with my dear Saviour!

Yes, living, dying let me bring My strength, my solace from this spring;
That He who lives to be my King Once died to be my Saviour!

Chapel Update.

  • The Kitchen is now finished except for backsplash tiles and roll down for pass through.
  • Ladies will be at the chapel at 2pm Friday to wipe out drawers, put in drawer liners and begin to find places for kitchen utensils and pots & pans in order to identify what is still missing.
  • Sound system completed, just requires educating ourselves on its operation. Thanks to Duncan Sound, the installer and advice from Daphne Eze, Don Kitsch and Terry.
  • When we look at our facility I am reminded of all the folks who have worked on it. Fred the Super, the painter, electrician, plumber, wood finisher, End of the Roll and also the company that did the clean up right after the fire. Also the 7th Day Adventist church for the generous use of their building. We need to be thankful for the skill and patience of them all to manage the project in such a kindly manner. Never did I get push back when I asked for things or enquired about time lines. Praise God!!
  • I am very pleased to have been the chapel’s liaison with the contractor while Doug and Art were my right hand men to take care of all the physical work needed from our side.
