Message from Mary Hendricks, Fourth Grade Teacher Central Campus

“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:37-39 (NIV)

“Love overcomes every obstacle, prevails over every enemy, though often in humble, surprising ways, when circumstances seem to me and those around me insurmountable. – Lord of love, help me to see difficulties as you see them, through your conquering, overcoming love, and act compassion and confidence.” – Sarah Hornsby, Love is…

Each of us began our walk with the Lord believing that life would bring certain challenges and that Christ would give us the strength and faith to carry us through. It didn’t take any of us very long to realize that this walk could sometimes bring struggles and some hardships we never anticipated. We could open our hearts and share those difficult times from the past. Then we could share unexpected obstacles many of our community are battling as we read this today. Sarah Hornsby prays these words, “when circumstances seem to me and those around me insurmountable” as she asks for God’s conquering and overcoming love in our lives. Those who walk beside our Risen Lord through these times know that He does give us the power, strength, and the endurance to meet every challenge that comes our way.

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 (NIV)
