When did you first experience the Presence of God with its wonderful assurance of peace and true joy? For me, it was at a Young Life Camp at Malibu, Canada in the majestic setting of Princess Louisa Inlet on the coast of British Columbia. The exquisite beauty of the steep mountains coming right down into the waters of the Fjord, coupled with the green fir trees covering every bit of open ground gave special meaning to the song "To God be the Glory". But in the midst of all the beauty and the warm fellowship over a hundred other teenagers-- I was in the midst of a deep personal struggle! I had been an attendee at Church services since I was an infant, but I had not experienced any sense of an abiding presence of God, I knew well the Fatherhod of God and I heard most of the stores of Jesus, but there was not a sense of being close to Jesus. When I was introduced to the difference between Knowing Christ and merely Knowing about Christ, I knew where I was. I didn't want to give up all the fun, I didn't want to give up the running of my life. So I jist prayed that if Christ was really real and if He wanted me to give my life to him, He had to make Himself known and He had to have an impact on me. And He did. Oh I had a lot to learn but that's when I first experienced the quiet assurance of God that comes in the midst of His presence.
I hope you are enjoying the wonderful music and close fellowship that makes up our Sunday Worship Services. This truly is a special places where many are discovering the Presence of God in their lives.
