Right now, our country is in an interesting place. Memorial Day is today, and there is a part of this country that cannot understand what “remembering” truly means.
The freedoms we have in this country have not just been inherently given and simply granted but have been fought for by men and women who have sacrificed their lives for the ability to stand for or even burn an American flag. Remembering and honoring those who came before us in defense of our country doesn’t mean they always did everything right.
The power in remembering the past is that we can see what was good and what was wrong and then work FORWARD to not repeat those same mistakes again. There are people/organizations who would want to erase or rewrite history or to “start over” with a clean slate but there are dangers in that thinking, especially for future generations.
In my life, I cannot just erase the things that I have done wrong and start over. This may sound strange, but as a follower of Christ, there is actually power in being able to not look at your past and be depressed about what you did, but to look at where you have come from and the strides you have made towards becoming a better person with the help of Jesus. Errors in life can be either markers to show how far you have come or can be anchors that keep you from being able to move forward into the best version of you for yourself and the world around you.
In looking back at the history and growth of America, I can say that we did not always do everything right. But those things that were not done right do not discount all the GOOD that has been done for the citizens of America and the world in general. I am an eternal optimist when it comes to our country and its members to find the right way, with God’s help, and to be the best version it can be for the sake of the country as a whole and world. This is not turning a blind eye to the things that have been done incorrectly through the years but taking moments like Memorial Day and committing to never walk or do those same things ever again.
We cannot truly rewrite history, but we CAN commit to making good decisions going forward and honoring those who have brought us this far in this great country called America.

"No Empty Tables."
While we know we can't end hunger in our communities overnight, we can, however, help some families, and we will do it together for God's glory.
On Sunday afternoon, March 28, we will have specially packed Easter Meal boxes available + we'll have an entire tractor-trailer load of food from the Farmers to Families program. Our drive-through line will be open from 2-4 pm (Approximately). If you need food or know someone who does, know that you can pick up free food. You can pick up one or more boxes of food, however many you can distribute.
NOTE: In past food distribution events, we've seen some great opportunities open up for churches, ministries, and food pantries that chose to pick up a large number of boxes to deliver to the areas of known need in their area of influence. If you would like to pick up more than ten boxes of food for your community, please "RSVP" to me at this email with your name, phone number, and desired quantities. We'll do our best to ensure that the amounts requested are made available for you.

Rocky Mountain CTN partners with Colorado Prays and here are some prayer points that we are praying over the city of Boulder in the aftermath of this shooting tragedy.
* The atmosphere of Boulder will permeate with the presence of God and there will be a hunger for Jesus.
* There would be an honoring of 1st responders.
* Pray a wall of protection that declares "This Will Not Happen Again" and that people will not live in fear.
* That support services responding to this (ie: Counseling, Mental Health, Donations), would make an impact and respond to bring health and healing to the community.
* That specific churches would have specific direction on how to respond.
* That media would have respect for all of those involved and not create a frenzy trying to get their story and that an agenda based narrative would not be created.
* King Soopers as a company as they make decisions to move forward and take care of their store and employees.
*That the true details surrounding this event would be seen by investigators and that nothing would be hidden.
We had a wonderful time fellowshipping with Carr Community Church yesterday. They are such a sweet congregation doing things to impact their community with the Love of Jesus.
If you live in that area~ don't hesitate to check it out!
An aging military chaplain and a young girl from a broken home join forces to plant a miracle garden touched by God. The Healing Garden is a faith-based film, laced with warmth and comedy. It celebrates the healing of families and communities through faith. The story touches on important topics such as marriage, a child's need for a nuclear family, love of country and our Vets, that miracles can still happen when you walk with Christ and how people should behave like every day is Christmas.
We are friends with the talented people who wrote, produced and directed this sweet movie. (We even got to spend some time on the set).

I don’t want to sound trite or overly simplistic but the Bible is full of Good News!
After probably the weirdest year that any of us has ever been through; a pandemic, tense elections, all the fires across the US, churches and businesses closing, people losing jobs, people sick and dying in unprecedented numbers, the stock market, the economy.............. Just a crazy year but: I am looking ahead with Hope in My Heart.
Leave behind the anxiety, the worry, and the fear from the past. “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope”. Jeremiah 29:11. Look forward and expect the best. Whatever you are worried about, your deepest darkest concerns, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6. Believe the Lord when He tells us “trust in Him”.
We’ve all heard John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son , that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” But what about John 3:17 “For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world but in order that the world might be saved through him”. God has a plan and we’re in it. We just need to ask him into our lives and in Isaiah 41:13 He says, “For I, the Lord your God, I hold your right hand; it is I who says to you, Fear not, I am the one who helps you”. In Psalms 91 it says “He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence and to not fear the terror of the night or the arrow that flies by day…”
The bible is full of Good News!
Life isn’t always easy. Whether it’s the mistakes that we make, or the things that can happen outside of our control, the Lord is there looking out for us. And He says in Hebrews 13:5 that “He will never leave you nor forsake you”. That means everything- to know that He is looking out for me. He wants the best for me. For us, For you!
“Blessed be the Lord who daily loads us with benefits” Psalms 68:19
“So, forget what lies behind and strain forward to what lies ahead”, Philippians 3:13 and remember that “I can do all things through him who strengthens me”.
I trust the Lord. He says he will look out for me and I believe Him. Commit ourselves to God, He has certainly committed Himself to us.
The Lord is with you, just ask Him.
Continue 2021 with hope in your heart and your eyes on Jesus!

When do we need courage? When do we not?
There are times (actually daily circumstances), which may require us to say what we really feel about something: tell our spouse that we have never really liked the beef pot pie recipe handed down from her mother’s side of the family, so let’s not have that for Sunday dinner, or when we have to tell our boss that we put the order in wrong for our new client and now we can’t charge them for the last three months.
Standing up and telling the truth takes courage.
As difficult as those kinds of situations might be, they are nothing compared to some of the decisions, life and death decisions, people have faced throughout history and throughout the bible.
Here are a couple that stand out to me:
Daniel: 3:16-18 “Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. If this be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace and he will deliver us out of your hand, O king. But if not, be it known to you O king that we will not serve your gods or worship the golden image that you have set up"..... So the king lit them up and came back later to find out they were unharmed.
Boy, that’s courage. Courage is defined as “the ability to do something that frightens one”. The word comes from Middle English, Old French, and before that, Latin for the word heart. So courage is being motivated from the heart to do something brave. Don’t we invite God into our hearts, to help us make the right decision, to stand up for what is right, to tell the truth when no one wants to listen?
In Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”
Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through him who strengthens me.”
What about the shepherd boy David, who saw the giant threatening the Israelites? He talked Saul into letting him fight Goliath. And he wouldn’t even take the kings armor- just his staff and his sling; a boy. We know how that turned out! He had the courage from God to stand up and fight for his people.
Sometimes we don’t need to get up and act right away but rather:
“Wait for the Lord, be strong, let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord”, as it says in Psalms 27:14.
Romans 15:13 says “May the God of Hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.”
And can we not encourage one another as we go through this journey? Give someone help, hope? Show them God’s work around us?
Isaiah 41:6 tells us “Everyone helps his neighbor and says to his brother, Be strong.”
Proverbs 31:8-9 states, “Open your mouth for the mute, for the rights of all who are destitute. Open your mouth, judge righteously; defend the rights of the poor and the needy.”
It takes courage to stand up for ourselves, to stand up for what its right, to stand up for others less fortunate, but with God in our hearts we can.
Here are a couple more verses to illustrate that God is with us and gives us courage:
Philippians 4:13 says “I can do all things through him who strengthens me.”
Ephesians 6: 10-18 “Finally be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the schemes of evil.”
Stay close to God, study His word and be intentionally about walking in courage as you operate in the Love of God.
