“Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever…” Psalm 125:1
As the famous line goes, “the best-laid plans of mice and men go often astray”*, and I am sure that is descriptive of the experience of many of you this summer and as we go into the fall. Yet, as believers, we see things differently under the Lord’s almighty sovereign ways, and thus we proceed with confidence under His reigning authority.
What follows below are our ‘adjustments’ for the remainder of this year. May your adjustments also be met with the confidence that the Lord’s grace is sufficient and is truly renewed daily.
In Gospel Bonds, Jack Whytock, Director
* “The best-laid schemes o’ mice an’ men Gang aft agley” — from “To a Mouse, on Turning Her Up in Her Nest With the Plough”, a Scots-language poem written by Robert Burns in 1785
