Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7)
Dear WorkLight brothers and sisters,
It’s been nearly a year since the arrival of COVID-19. We have each had our own experiences as individuals, families, church members, communities, and residents of a particular city or state. But no matter how we might have navigated these past 12 months, anxiety of some form has been all but unavoidable. In his Epistle to the Phillipians, Paul reminds us to not be anxious…. about anything! Challenged by poor performance at work? Do not be anxious. Struggling loved ones? Do not be anxious. Positive test for COVID-19? Do not be anxious! In a world full of distractions and troubles, such a feat still seems impossible. But of course, as Paul reminds us, such a transformation in perspective is only possible through Jesus Christ.
We pray that this month’s Flame brings the peace of God to guard your heart and mind. Come Holy Spirit! As WorkLight Remote completes its first year we give thanks to Jesus Christ for how readers and participants like you have adapted this ministry through virtual meetings, digital media, online programs, new small groups, telling your story, sharing the Word, and more. Please join together in ongoing prayer for Justin Lassen, our new Ministry Program Manager, as God puts him to work in reaching the next generation of believers with this movement of the Holy Spirit. WorkLight is made possible by the grace of God and the generosity of those he has entrusted with stewarding the resources of this ministry.
As of 1/14/2021, Our Annual Gift Campaign has raised approximately $147,800 in committed gifts toward our goal of $450,000 by the end of March. If you haven’t already joined the campaign, please take a moment to pray about how you might grow closer to WorkLight as a sustaining contributor. May the peace of Christ shine bright in your heart and mind.
