11.15.22     Let Go

Did you know that the Cross is all about letting go?  God the Father is all about letting go? A majority of counseling and life issues are all about letting go?  All of these statements are true and once we can take in the reality of these truths, our lives will become more internally peaceful and stable.

One extremely important verse in the Bible concerning this is found in Matthew 6:14-15 :

 "IF you forgive men when they sin (offend) you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins (offenses), your Father (in heaven) will not forgive your sins."

Ephesians 4:32  "Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you."

Colossians 3:13  "Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord for gave you."

Forgiveness does not mean we forget but that we let go of the "right" to hang onto the offense and to get even.  Forgiveness does not always mean this person who offended you is safe for you to be around but it does mean you let go of wishing any evil will upon them or that you continue to talk bad about them. Let go and let God deal with them.  Think about it. Each and everyone of us has wronged someone at some time in our life, intentionally or unintentionally. And it is a simple fact that we need heavenly Father's forgiveness between us and him every single day. We offend him in our thoughts, our speech, and our actions. I am grateful he sees us through the sacrifice of forgiveness his son Jesus made on the Cross.

Think about it. What kind of life do you want?  I want one filled with internal peace and unblocked answers to prayers, with the mercy and goodness of God weaving throughout my spirit and life, no matter what is happening externally.

Check out verses concerning forgiveness towards others, of ourselves, the work on the Cross. You simply cannot love Christ and not be wise to forgive and let go. Lets grow up, become mature in Christ, stop fussing and squabbling and offending. Amen.

-Pastor Sandra Matheson 



Heavenly Father, bring to our remembrance of sacrifice that Jesus went through on the Cross to submit a blood sacrifice for our sins, individually and collectively. Let us be mindful of not taking on any offenses and not putting out any. Help us to remember we are all human and have stressful and bad days, hurts and wounds that cannot be seen, and how we would like to be treated as well. Give us wisdom to know when to truly forgive and to walk away, knowing that person or situation is not healthy for us. We desire to be free and healthy in mind, body, soul, and spirit.   Amen

New Beginnings


We have made it through 2021! The last 3 years has been hard on us, we have gone through many things and persevered. I think of the losses that so many have suffered and my heart goes out to them. I have lost friends and support and finances - just like so any of you What I can say is ...."But for God!" I do not know how many have struggled through withourt Jesus in their lives, I have seen many try and suffer and become so angry and so bitter, losing hope and positivity. Our Lord did not promise us continual bless but tha we would suffer and persever and overcome. The Word of God tells us that we are are Overcomers - so we need situations and circumstances to overcome. There is no other way to be an overcomer.


As we push forward in overcoming we begin to develop resolve, deeper faith in Christ, steadfastness, a refining of our character, a greater knowledge of the Bible, and a deeper understanding of prayer and how to pray. Priceless. The bootcamp of Faith.


How have you overcome? What have you learned about yourself, about Jesus? How has your prayer life changed? How has the Word of God been food to your soul? Have you graduated bootcamp yet or are you stuck going over the wall? Wherever you are, Christ is there with you. Call on His Name and ask for assistance, to know what to do and what to say in your situation your circumstance. I know this for certain: whatever you need to learn, whatever discipline you need to have, you will deal with it in bootcamp.


Be of good cheer. Be of good courage. Do not be discouraged and do not be fearful. Some things are stolen from is by the devil, some things are taken away for ouru sake and for the negative impact in our life, and somethings are refined to be restored. We are going into a new season of time that has never been before. Are you faithful? Are you trustworthy? Can our God count on us to stay the course?


I hope our answers are a resounding, "YES!!" and "Amen!!"


- Pastor Sandi
