Hello Windermere friends,
This is week two of our prayer emphasis for Windermere. We are calling it Windermere Wednesdays.
This week I have been out and about visiting many Windermere friends. I have talked with volunteers, donors and ambassadors. I am blessed to hear how so many of you love Windermere. Our legacy at Windermere is so rich.
However, as we look to the future, we do face real challenges. The road is not an easy one. I must admit, at times I stress over it. But we do have hope. Specifically I am using this passage –
Now we have this treasure in clay jars, so that this extraordinary power may be from God and not from us. We are pressured in every way but not crushed; we are perplexed but not in despair; we are persecuted but not abandoned; we are struck down but not destroyed. (2 Corinthians 4:7-9 HCSB)
I think the key word for us is the word – perseverance. Paul says in this passage that yes, life does have challenges, but Christ does not abandon us. He is with us. When this life hits a tough patch, we can know that Christ walks with us. When we are misunderstood, Christ understands. When we start to feel insecure, Christ is there to stabilize us. This is how we face our future……with Christ.
* Pray this verse 2 Corinthians 4:7-9 for your own life.
* Pray that God will meet our Windermere financial needs in miraculous ways.
* Pray that in the next 3-4 months more churches will trust us and bring groups to Windermere. We are are at about 89% of our registration goal.
* Pray that in the future, Windermere will be known as a place of hope and perseverance.
* As the CEO, I ask your prayers for me. I need the Lord’s wisdom in major decisions coming in the next 45 days.
God bless you.
