A DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT by Lois Coady

"How priceless is your unfailing love, O God!
People take refuge in the shadow of your wings."
Psalm 36:7

“You’re snug as a bug in a rug,” my mom would say as she tucked me in bed each night. Funny how those things come back to you years later. You know, I had a great childhood. We were not “well off” by most standards but I always felt safe. My folks loved me and my three siblings and sacrificed a lot for us. That feeling of security, being snuggly kept and cared for, has helped me develop into the adult I am today and given me so much confidence in God’s love for me.

I know my experience isn’t true for everybody. My heart hurts for those of you who experienced difficult childhoods. Those whose parents did not protect and provide a safe environment for them. Those who felt (and may still feel) abandoned and unwanted. Those who were not snuggly kept and cared for. If this was your childhood experience, I am so sorry.

But there is hope! Even though your earthly parents may have fallen short, John 3:16 plainly describes God’s love for you and each one of us, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” God so desperately loves you that He gave His most priceless possession – His only Son – to be that final, perfect sacrifice for your sin. To save you from your sinful self so you can spend eternity with Him.

All you need to do is say, “Yes, Lord.” Then from that point forward, you will be “snug as a bug in a rug”, snuggly kept and cared for as you walk through the rest of your life with Jesus. It really is that easy, so say "YES" to God today!

Since our message series is on Psalm 23, we are offering you this Bible study.
  • You can study on your own,
  • You can join a group facilitated by Pastor Phil and study it together!

The Bible study group will be done through Facebook. It will be a private group, meaning only members of the group can take part. It will not be available or visible to the public. On the group Facebook page, we will post our answers and thoughts from that week's Bible study. It will be fun, build our faith, and help us stay connected.

To join the group you must receive and accept an invitation. If you want to be sent an invitation, email Pastor Phil at psommervillepgcc@gmail.com.
WE WANT TO SHARE YOUR TESTIMONY!

Testimonies are powerfully encouraging and we want to share more and how encouraging it would be to hear each other's stories.

You could share your testimony on how you became a Christian, or some other meaningful experience you have had with God.

If you fear that you wouldn't be able to write it, have no fear. If you desire, we can interview you and write it up for you.

Please volunteer to share your story and give God glory. Email your story to the church email address listed below or let us know you would be willing to be interviewed.
