A Message from Steve Sanders

Monthly Motivation: 
Don't Focus On The Problem, 
Focus On The Promise! 

    Have you ever be in a situation where you questioned if you were qualified to be there or not? Or in a place when you focused on the problem or issue at hand so much that you couldn't truly see how God would use the opportunity to glorify His Kingdom? If you're like me, you've found yourself in those predicaments more than you'd like to admit! 

If you're in these type of situations again, take a second to remind yourself of God's Promises to His Children.

    God's Promises
God Promised... He Will Not Fail You Or Forsake You
* "No man will be able to stand before you all the days of your life. Just as I have been with Moses, I will be with you; I will not fail you or forsake you."

God Promised... His Word Will Abide In You
* "I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing."

God Promised... The Bible Is Your Strength 
* "'Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.'"

St. Edward High School Huddle Thanksgiving Feast
November 17, 2016

    Steve speaking to the FCA Huddle                         Steve Sanders & Shaun Kinley

Thursday, November 17, 2016 the St. Edward FCA Huddle hosted their second annual Thanksgiving feast. Steve shared a message to around 100 student athletes. The meal took place at the school at 7am and there was turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing and all the fixings, including pie! The meal was prepated by mom's, grandma'a and aunts of the regular attendees to the huddle group. The group that meets there averages about 40-50 students at their weekly FCA meetings so this is a way to bring out more students to find out about FCA.
