It was so restful to allow the water to move me around wherever the wind blew. I find that my relationship with God is like that. The more I trust (relax) in Him, the more He is able to support me. Just like when I was floating in the water, moving where the waves took me, God has control to move me where He wants me. When I trust Him and know that He's 'got me,' and that I'm safe with Him and in Him, I can allow the waves of His Holy Spirit to direct my course in life...Just relax. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take" (Proverbs 3:5 - 6).

Our doors are always open to you. Lenten living Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, February 18 this year. Christians observed this season of the church year since the fourth century. It's traditionally a time of reflec- tion, penitence and spiritual renewal before Easter. During Lent, some Chris- tians give up something that hinders their relationship with God. Others do some- thing extra for their spiritu- al growth or make a special sacrifice. They key is to make Lent a memorable season of sincere spiritual growth - a time that can set the tone for the rest of the year. Office hours: 9 a.m.-noon, Monday-Friday.

Have you ever felt the urge to pray for someone and then just put it on a list and said "I'll pray for them later? " Or has any- one ever called you and said, "I need you to pray for me. I have this need? " A missionary on Furlough told this true story. "While serving at a small field hos- pital in A frica, every two weeks, I traveled by bicycle through the jungle to a near- by city for supplies. Upon ar- rival in the city, I observed two men fighting, one of whom had been serious- ly injured. I treated him for his injuries and at the same time talked to him about the Lord." "I then traveled home without incident. Two weeks later, I repeated my jour- ney. Upon arriving in the city, I was approached by the young man I had treat- ed. He told me that he had known I carried money and medicines. He said, 'Some friends and I followed you into the jungle, knowing PETERSBURG WESLEYAN CHURCH 9th and McCoy, Petersburg Pastor 812-632-0773 Sunday morning worship 10 :30 a.m. You are invited to worship with us. Richard Comer, Pastor you would camp overnight. We planned to kill you and take your money and drugs. But just as we were about to move into your camp, we saw that you were surrounded by 26 armed guards.' At this, I laughed and said that I was certainly all alone in that jun- gle campsite." "The young man pressed the point, however, and said, 'No, sir, I was not the only person to see the guards, my friends also saw them. It was because of those guards that we were afraid and left you alone.'" The next day, the mission- ary returned home and be- gan telling a friend about what happened. The friend said, "you won't believe this, it was morning here and I was preparing to go play golf. I was about to putt when I felt the urge to pray for you. In fact, the urging of the Lord was so strong, I called men in this church to meet with me here in the sanctuary to pray for you. There were 26." This story is an incredible example of how the Spirit of the Lord moves in mysteri- ous ways. If you ever hear such prodding, go along with it. If we all take it to heart, we can turn this world to- ward God once again. As the above true story clearly illus- trates, "with God all things are possible." "Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is im- possible, but with God all things are possible" (Mat- thew 19:26, NIV ). We invite all of you to come and worship with us.
