                                                           WHEN DO YOU CALL ON GOD FOR HELP?
When things are going good in your life? You have a good job, a loving spouse, wonderful children, a nice
home, plenty of close friends and good health. Does this describe you and your family?
There are way too many people in this world both Christians and Non-Christians that when life is good they
fail to see that the LORD is blessing them with the things that they have and cherish the most!
When something happens to these cherished things a lot of people start blaming the LORD for their
problems. Did you ever think that the LORD puts hills and valleys in our lives to help us grow and to become
better people, but more importantly to draw us closer to HIM.
He has told us he will provide for our every need just like the birds in the sky, but maybe we come to expect
too much of our earthly possessions. Will your spouse love you the same if they are wearing the most
expensive clothing or the living in the largest fanciest house in town as they would if the wearing clothes from
the Goodwill or living in a small apartment. They should because you are family!
GOD so loved us that he gave us everything that we have and then he went above and beyond by sending
his Son here to die for our SINS because we are his family and HE LOVES US!
Take what GOD has blessed you with and serve HIM. Sometimes the bad things and the lack of things is to
help us to remember what we have and that we should be serving our LORD and Savior first and others
second! Pray to GOD and Thank HIM for what you have and ask HIM to lead you to being a better Christian
and family member
What can you do for the LORD today, tomorrow and next week.
Talk to the Elders or the Deacons to offer your assistance in doing the LORD'S work here at Norval Park.

                                                                  JUST THAT QUICKLY
       
Thursday afternoon, our son and his family came up from Parkersburg to visit for a while.  I had him help
me put a small air conditioner in a window, then we worked on some things on my fishing boat for a little bit.  
A little while after they left, my back began hurting pretty bad and I could barely walk at times.  This carried
over into Friday and I had to take it pretty easy and rest my back.
       Isn’t this the way life often happens?  One moment we are feeling fine, and the next moment we are
down with a problem.  It might be physical, mental, job-related, home-related, finances, etc.  Just that quickly,
things can change in one’s life.
       It’s the same with death.  One moment a person seems healthy and well, and the next moment they are
gone.  None of us knows when that might occur in our life.  That’s precisely why God teaches us to prepare
for eternity and to remain faithful.  Jesus said, “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day
your Lord will come.  But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief
was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into.  So you also must
be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him” (Matthew 24:42-44 -
NIV).
       This morning we plan to discuss our spiritual growth.  That is part of staying prepared for the coming of
the Lord.  He expects us to grow and mature as His children.  My back will most likely get better and be fine.  
However, when the end of life comes, there will be no second chance to make changes or to prepare for
eternity.  Get ready, for the change can come just that quickly.
                                                                       We love you all  -  Keith
