Encouragement from Elder Casey Wickham

Hey Westside!

We continue to be so excited for the work the God is doing in us as a body here and all the gracious ways He continues to lead us and display His sovereign goodness in the many aspects of this ministry—especially as we work our way through Spiritual Disciplines through the fall.  Thank you, Lord!

I have been really convicted throughout this Thanksgiving season of needing to be more thankful for all He has and is doing in my life—especially with my family and spheres of influence. He has been encouraging me powerfully through His word and just recently, I sent this to my Westside elder brothers to encourage them:

Make thankfulness your sacrifice to God, and keep the vows you made to the Most High. Then call on me when you are in trouble, and I will rescue you, and you will give me glory... But giving thanks is a sacrifice that truly honours me. If you keep to my path, I will reveal to you the salvation of God.
Psalms 50:14-15, 23 NLT (emphasis mine)

What an incredible reality that when we make thankfulness our sacrifice to God, it honours Him and gives Him glory! 

This is my prayer for us, Westside. May God make us so grateful for all He has done and continues to do, and may He get the glory.
