Oh Sweet Retirement

Picture2Retirement is just around the corner for Ross Bacon! After owning the company for over 10  years, he will soon be filling his days with playing golf! His leadership and vision are a few things that made Ross a great boss, but his integrity, respect, and compassion are what makes him a great person to have worked for. We will all miss you!

Congratulations on your well-earned retirement and to extending your weekend by five days!!

Do Not Be Anxious

What bothers you? What keeps you up at night? What do you worry about? We are told that worry (stress) is a leading health hazard. It saps our strength and places our energies in  areas unproductive. So what do we do?

The apostle Paul suggested, no really commanded his readers “Do not be anxious”…or “Do not worry about anything”. Easy to say, sometimes hard to live. Worry keeps us on edge. Worry can be seen as faithless selfishness: I handle my own problems. George Mueller, a man who lived in daily faith in God’s provisions once said, “The beginning of anxiety is the end of faith, and the beginning of true faith is the end of anxiety He is stating that faith and worry (anxiety) are not at all compatible.  One will drive out the other. If we want to drive out anxiety (worry), we must exercise our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. How? Prayer with thanksgiving to God. Let Him know how you feel, what is going on, your fears and your     victories. He is neither too big or too unconcerned to listen to each of His children. He does not come home from work tired from the day.  He is willing and desiring to spend time with His children. What is bothering you? Tell God.  What frustrates you? Tell God. And expect Him, allow Him to work in your life.

The result is His peace…We often think of peace as a quiet pastoral scene, but the peace here is calm in the middle of a storm.  His peace will guard (a military type term which indicates a diligence of patrol, a sentinel) our hearts and our minds. You want His peace, talk to Him.   Thank Him for His mercy and peace in your life…and watch the worry dissipate into faith and confidence in Him no matter what comes your way.
