“Rain, rain, go away come again some other day.” That is how I feel and I’m sure you do, as well. I keep telling myself, “Don’t worry about it, Summer is coming.” Then we will all be praying for rain, but please, no hurricanes. Welcome to Gulf Coast weather! For sure, I will not lose any sleep over it.

But what about the forecast for Westway Baptist Church? I for one, cannot look into the future but I do know that He is our future. The problem is that we need to stay on the path with Him. It is impossible to stay on the right path without God’s guidance. When we don’t, the forecast is very stormy.

Let me remind you that Westway’s mission is to be:

Engaged in our community;
Embracing everyone in love;
Evangelizing non-believers and
Equipping new believers for service.

The question here is where do you fit in? How is your spiritual gift relevant to your personal mission? Have you found your place and are you at your post or AWOL?

This summer, let Jesus shine through you. Don’t hide His light. Let it shine, let it shine. And if we do have showers, let them be showers of blessing. We need showers of blessing. As the song says, “Mercy drops round us are falling, but for the showers we plead.”

Standing on His promises, Bro. David
