Rev. Neal Kuhlhorst
You have searched me, Lord, and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord, know it completely. You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.
-Psalm 139: 1-6
The title of our VBS this year was SUBMERGED and it was based in Psalm 139.
I must admit that this is one of my favorite psalms and it takes me to the depths of God's love.
This psalm consistently brings a smile to my face and so did the wonderful settings created to bring children and adults alike into the awesome wonder of God's love.
I know that scores of volunteers were responsible for the entire event, but I want to share a picture of three very important leaders that assured everyone involved felt God's presence: Billie Bothwell, Sheila Cooley and Allison Shearouse.
Thank you from all of us for your leadership and countless hours of preparation!
Jesus teaches us to "let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these." Having watched the excitement, happiness, love and devotion experienced at SUBMERGED, I imagine the Lord said, "Now that's what I'm talking about!!!"
Well done good and faithful servants!
Prayer for Today
Thank you for your Word, O Lord, that reminds us that your love is so great that no matter what our age and no matter where we are, you hem us in with your everlasting love so that we can find our rest and peace in you merciful graces. Amen.
