Pastor Joy’s Message

 Psalm 37:7 “Be still before the Lord, and wait
patiently for him.” (NRSV)

 Happy October!  I can hardly believe that
October is already here, but the hustle and bustle
of activity at church certainly tells me that it is.  
October brings with it many fall activities in our
communities as well as here at Splendora
Countryside United Methodist Church.  In addition
to our usual weekly activities and worship, folks are
working hard to get ready for our Fish Fry and
Kids Clothing Sale on October 11th, and games are
being dusted off for Fall Fest on October 31st.  

 Even in the midst of all this activity, I find a
sense of peace during the fall that seems to be
missing other times of the year.  It’s a time to
slow down just a bit after the back-to-school rush
and just before the busyness of the Christmas
season.  Psalm 37:7 tells us to “Be still before the
Lord, and wait patiently for him.”  As I feel the
cool breeze of fall, I find myself taking just a
moment to be still before the Lord and rest in
God’s peace.  It is in those moments of rest and
peace that we find spiritual nourishment and
refreshment in the midst of sharing God’s love with
our world.  May we all enjoy a few moments of God’
s peace in the midst of the fun and excitement of
our many fall activities!

               Yours in Christ –
