Scattered thunderstorms in the forecast tried to stop our 5th Team event of 2019 but the Lord helped us out by keeping it at bay until the weigh in was complete.
Fishers of Men, Alabama South’s 5th and final tournament of 2019 at Live Oak was a success. Our Friday night meeting was held at the Live Oak Pavilion. We had a great Friday night with 32 present at the meeting. Brother Tim Floyd started his message by reading Mark 4:35-41. This is telling the story of Jesus calming a great storm. The people mentioned in this scripture were the church of the time. They followed Jesus when he said we are going to the other side of the body of water, not knowing that a great storming was brewing. They just wanted to follow the Lord. However, when the storm arose and the wind started to beat the ships, they got scared. Jesus, on the other hand, was sleeping. He had no worries. They woke Jesus and asked if he cared about them at all? Jesus arose, rebuked the wind and told the sea to be still. What happened then? The wind stopped and there was calm. Jesus asked why they were so scared. Asked why they had no faith? They were amazed and fearful because the sea and wind had obeyed this man. We should all trust the Lord completely. If the church would have trusted the Lord, they would have feared nothing because they knew he would take care of them. You will notice that Jesus did not send them alone. He included himself. He was with them every step of the way. Jesus might send you into a battle, trial, tribulation but he will always be with you in each situation you face. We follow the Lord but sometimes get unsure of the situation and try to handle things on our own and rush things. We get lost. Do not let the unknown deter you from following Christ. Trust and love him completely and he will always take care of you. The devil will give you doubt, anger and fear. However, these things do not bother the Lord. So trust and love the Lord so these things will not bother you. You need to get on board with Jesus and stay on board with Jesus. Remember, beyond each storm is a blessing. Stay in the boat with Jesus, he has something special for you.
Thank You Tim for the words of encouragement and reminding us that we all need to rely on the Lords trust and righteous path. At the end of the night we had 14 boats fishing on Saturday.
