Courage to be You

If I were to tell you, you were a courageous person, what would your reaction be?  You would probably recount all the things that make you afraid, the times you failed or mention someone who has faced so many more obstacles than you.
None of that matters to God.
He made you as you are.  You are one of a kind and God did that on purpose.  He made you and the only you that is you.  You are the most rare individual on this earth because you are the only one.  When it is your time to die, there will be no you left.
The you that is you is beautiful to God because He created you. Solomon 4:7

It takes courage to be yourself, to stand alone with the individual characteristics that you were given. Many people try to be someone else: a famous entertainer, wealthier, busier, less busy.  Some Christians try to be like a well known evangelist.  But, if you are content to be who God created you to be, you are showing your trust in Him.  If you stay true to who you are, no matter the outside pressure, you are courageous.


 On August 17th, we will be holding our famous outdoor service and picnic at Kelsall Park, 371 Relative Road.  There will be music, encouragement, fun and food.  Please let us know you are coming.  (reply by comment or e mail:
We are collecting for the Burk's Falls food bank as well as for Christine's Place (pregnancy counselling).
This is also a good time to buy seasonal items-sandals, sunglasses, for the Christmas shoeboxes.
blessings and hope we will see you soon.
