Purpose

Just a few thoughts I been having.
Maybe we all can ask ourselves some questions.
For what purpose did we join ASR?
For what purpose did I get blessed with this motorcycle?
For what purpose did I stop at a gas station and happen to see other bikers?
For what purpose am I going through this hardship?
For what purpose did I meet this individual?
For what purpose is my health declining?
For what purpose did I hear an acquaintance is struggling?
Now I’m gonna talk about me for a few,  As a self employed roofer of close to 30 years I look back and see that I am always on the move, always in high gear, time is money logic. Looking back , looking at present times, I am figuring out that every blessing, every hardship, every trial, every thing happens for a purpose. When I’m going on a trip I’m always hurrying to get there, hurrying to get home, and not stopping to enjoy some of the things that was put in front of me for a purpose.  How many witnessing opportunities did I miss by hurrying? When I first started having health issues I let worry, panic and fear step in, which means I let my faith drop…… I had been praying for a couple years as some of you know for God to show me how to change up my business, I was having hard time hiring employees, hard time keeping jobs for lack of help, so I tried sub contracting, came with some hiccups but worked for the best, then came the health issues and had to start sub contracting all my jobs and back came panic and fear, but my Pastor and others keeps reminding me that God’s got this. I said all that to say this: No matter what is going on or where your at just going through a normal stress free day or a very stressful moment, stop and ask yourself “What is God’s plan and purpose for this” It could be as simple as an answer to prayer just like maybe God is telling me to get off the roof and be a boss of sub crews and it took health issues for me to listen. But whatever it is there is a purpose for it! God bless you all, slow down and ask God what purpose is this moment for, blessing or trial, it has a purpose.
God bless you all

Election

Treasurer nominee is Laureen Theodore running unopposed.

President nominees are;

I’m asking Bro Storey and Bro Thompson to put a acceptance letter on the Facebook “discussions page”  telling about themselves and for questions. This way  it remains members only asking the questions and commenting. Let’s all remember we are a ministry, asking questions of ministers,  pray much and follow what you feel God’s will is.

Thank you
