 Daily Devotions ended April 1. 

 

E-DEVOTION FOR THURSDAY, APRIL 1

          It's been quite a year! I have been sharing these thoughts with you for the past year as we have all struggled with the effects of the Coronavirus. We've had our 'ups and downs' this past year, that is for sure.

          This will be my final thought for these days. There always has to be a 'beginning' and an 'end,' doesn't there?

          So... I opened my Bible to Genesis 1:1, “In the beginning... God created the universe.” It all started with God. God was with us in the very beginning. As I sat to write the first devotional thought a year ago, I wondered what I could possibly share that would lighten the load of this journey. I just decided that if I could remind myself and all of us that God is there for us every step of the way... that would be sufficient. And He has been.

          I will soon close 50+ years of pastoral ministry. It has taken our family to many places and through many experiences. But once again... our God has led us and sustained us. Don't think there haven't been times of questioning... we all have those thoughts. But we do not walk this walk alone.

          And the Bible ends with Revelation 22:20-21: “He who gives his testimony to all this says, 'Yes Indeed! I am coming soon!’ So be it. Come, Lord Jesus! May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with you now and forever.”

          I thank you for reading these many messages, for your kind words of encouragement and for the love of God you have shared with one another and with me. And I urge you to get the vaccination, do it for all of us. Don't forget to keep on washing your hands, fold them and look down upon your thumbs in the shape of the cross. Bow your head and give thanks for the Risen Lord Jesus Christ, who we will celebrate this Easter Morn. Join with me in the Sunrise Worship online this Sunday. Thank you again for your love and for your prayers.

          Pray with me: “Dear Lord, you have blessed our lives beyond measure. You have given us many friends and family who have walked the walk right alongside of us. Give strength to the weary, food for the hungry, comfort for the broken-hearted and faith to those who falter. Our lives are full... To God be the Glory!” Amen. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

          And now may the peace that passes all understanding guard your hearts and your minds through Christ Jesus our Lord. AMEN.

          Pastor Ken Nyhusmoen
