November Desktop Calendar
Finally got a few quiet moments to finish up my November desktop calendars!
In the wake of horrendous tragedies that have recently occurred close to home and around the world, my thoughts lately have been completely disturbed and somewhat disheartened. Many days, we are blissfully ignorant of all the horrible things that are going on in the world around us… but some days, it becomes all too real how fallen we are and what a broken world we live in. Today’s sermon was a timely reminder that God’s plan for us does not end in sin, brokenness and death. Though undeserving, we have been offered immeasurable grace, redemption and a renewed creation through Christ. And so we can trust that, even in tragedy, God’s victory has already been accomplished.
I hope these calendars will be a reminder to you throughout November — during Thanksgiving and beyond — that, even when darkness seems to have the upper hand, God is still in control. He gives us reassurance that His promises are true and we need not be anxious for anything, but instead can approach him in a spirit of supplication as well as thanksgiving, no matter the situation.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.“
