WHAT TO DO WHEN
“THE WALLS CAVE IN ON YOU”

Ever had the feeling that your world was about to come to an end because of something that had happened to you?  Maybe you lost your job, failed a class at school, or your husband divorced you.  What do you do at times like these?  Let me make four suggestions:

1. Do Not Panic.  Everything is not lost.  It may seem that way, but the last chapter has not been written.  Many hasty decisions are made at this time and later you regret them.  Solomon said, “It is not good to have zeal without knowledge, nor to be hasty and miss the way” (Prov. 19:2).  Do not rush into things.  This is not the time for major decisions.

2. Accept What You Cannot Change. Time spent in fighting a battle that you cannot change only deepens your problem.  If your husband has died, then he cannot be brought back.  David had this experience when he lost his son.  The servants were surprised that he took off his clothes of mourning and resumed his normal life.  They asked why?  He responded, “While the child was alive, I fasted and wept, I thought, Who knows?  The Lord may be gracious to me and let the child live.  But now that he is dead, why should I fast?  Can I bring him back again?” (2 Sam. 12:22-23).  He accepted what could not be changed.

3. Do Not Wallow in Self Pity.  Self pity is like acid that will destroy you.  When Job lost his wealth, family, health and support of his wife the Bible says, “In all this, Job did not sin in what he said.” (Job 2:10).  When you begin to feel sorry for yourself, complain about it; blame God or others you are just heading for more trouble.  Refuse to feel sorry for yourself.

4. Remember, Because of Jesus, No Situation is Hopeless.  Even on days when the clouds cover the sun, the sun is still shining.  In Christ there is always hope.  Robert Schuler wrote the following poem that is true because of Jesus.

                After the night comes a new day,

                After winter, a new spring,

                After the storm, a sun,

                After sin comes forgiveness,

                After defeat, another chance.

FELLOWSHIP DINNER

Our first Sunday Monthly Fellowship Dinner will be next Sunday, July 7, after morning services.  Please bring your favorite main dish, side dish or dessert.  If you have any questions or suggestions please let us know.  The July hostesses are Michelle McKnight and Denise Beard and our theme is a Patriotic Fellowship.  We hope everyone will join us.


PRAYER CONCERNS

To the best of our knowledge, we have no Central member in the hospital at the present time.  Prayers requested for Harold VanDusen, the father of Winona Seikel’s daughter-in-law, who was taken to the hospital on Sunday with breathing problems.

Youth News
Nathan Kelly

Well we survived camp...wait that was last week. It still feels like we are recovering from camp, well some of us. Others are sadly coming off their camp high. I know it can't be helped but I'd really like to encourage all the teens to keep in contact with their camp friends and keep the feeling of camp alive. I hope that just staying active in the youth group will help some. I have planned something every week for July. I also know that there has been talk of a camp lock-in that will happen at the end of July or beginning of August. We are still in the planning stages of the lock-in but, like last week, if I tell everyone then I'll have a better chance of getting it together. It's something to look forward to. I'm hoping all the teens from all the churches will show up. As I wrap this up, I'd like to say how proud I am of the youth group. Since camp we have had over 20 in class. Now I know that's only been 3 classes (hopefully 4 if we keep it up Wednesday too) but it's still very impressive. I hope that those numbers continue to stay high. I enjoy having to run around and get more chairs for the teens. Keep it up, everyone!


VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL

Our Vacation Bible School will be July 15 – 19.  The theme this year will be “Dare to be a Daniel.”  Lots of volunteers are needed, so please sign up on the sheets in the foyer.  We dare YOU!!!
