CORNERSTONE MISSIONARY BAPTIST CHURCH
A WORD FROM PASTOR!
Greetings in Christ!
Congratulations on your graduation from (HIGH SCHOOLS)!
The years 2022 and 2023 will go down in our history books as two of the most trying years in the history of not only our nation but the world!
So many of our schools were either shut down entirely or suspended. All of this has made your final year quite challenging, to say the least.
While I don't have the answers to all we are going through, I do believe with all my heart that it's temporary. Even though it has seemed quite “eternal” to this point, take a few moments to reflect to when this first started and realize we are now (DAYS) closer to the other side!
You are entering a different world than you expected, but let me be one of the first to congratulate you on your achievements. Even applying for college seems like an impossible task!
Matthew 19:26 (NKJV) 26 But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men, this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
Let me also be one of the first to encourage you in the realization that God will lead you every step of the way after you graduate!
Psalm 37:23 (NKJV) The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD, And He delights in his way.
Of course, whether a person is a man or woman is irrelevant in God's eyes because when any of us follow the will of the Lord, our steps are ordered by Him! I believe this means that even in the times we may not know with one hundred percent certainty where our path leads when we walk with the Lord, He will take us where we need to go.
You may have many questions at this point, and most of them probably start with the word “why.” Yet, let me encourage you to move past the “why” and into “what.” What is it you want for my life, Lord? What can I do to be a blessing to others?
Remember, even in all the challenges we are facing, God is STILL God, and with Him in your life, “you've got this”!
If there's anything I can do for you, please don't hesitate to reach out.
Blessings in Christ,
Pastor Donald A. Frazier
