Joel 2:13-14a

“Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the Lord your God, for He is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love, and He relents from sending calamity. Who knows? He may turn and relent and leave behind a blessing—"

Heal Our Land
COVID, then injustice, pain and fires of division?! While the human race is limping and aching, People of God, we have but ONE direction we should go in these times; low and humble under the mighty hand of God. Today whether you are feeling the ache personally or only watching your neighbor’s ache from a distance, it is clear we must “rend our hearts” and call on God for His power to be shown.

The beautiful promise is that the heart of our God is “gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love…” And in the strain of our current landscape, we have the precious hope that He may “leave behind a blessing,” one we need so desperately. I believe He has divine strategies He’s been waiting to share with His people specifically in these vulnerable times, to help heal and glorify His Son. So, join me today church family, as we rend our hearts, turn toward God and petition Him to heal our land!
