Life is a glorious pilgrimage! As each of us traverse the frenetic seasons of life, including the joyously busy ones or the heartbreaking, our great God remains forever constant. He faithfully seeks out the hearts of His image-bearers through the means of His inspired revelation, which serves as a supernatural balm to the weary soul. It has the uncanny ability to catch us off guard to strengthen, to comfort, to heal, and to restore our mind, heart, and soul. It refreshes our spirit, reorienting our loves and our gaze! The Psalmist writes one such passage: “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble… There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, …God is in the midst of her. Come, behold the works of the Lord… and ‘Be still and know that I am God…’” How wonderful these words are as the end of another quarter is imminent. Let us keep looking to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, garnering our daily bread and being refreshed by the water of life!

This is part of the message we’ve been privileged to reflect upon and explore in our weekly Chapel services. We’ve been considering it through the lens of the Christian’s identity as a “people for God’s own possession” along with all that that entails for our young people. Naturally, this is the next sliver in our study in ‘On Mission Together: Proclaiming the Excellencies of Jesus’ from 1 Peter 2:9-10. Every week, I’m freshly reminded of the incredible privilege we have at FPDS to begin each day in the study of God’s Word, prayer, and song. Our prayer is that the Lord would be pleased to kindly use these meagre ‘seeds of truth’ to bring forth a mighty harvest in, and through, each child. The Lord bless and keep you.
