What's following you?

Psalm 23 v 6 "Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life."

You know when you read something familiar. You just blast past it not really taking it in. Well I was doing that this morning and then God stopped me in my tracks.

The above verse comes at the end of the most famous song in the Bible - The Lord is my shepherd. I am not even sure if this is the right way to read this but God invaded my world with this thought.

I have done all this for you. I have cared for you, looked after you in troubled times, been by your side in the darkest hours, comforted me in times of grief, protected me from my enemies. "
my cup overflows!"

Now what are you going to do with this? What is going to follow you? What is left after you visit?
What do you leave behind? - Goodness and Love! That's the natural outcome of God in my life. Leaving a trail of Goodness behind.

I am so proud of MKCC this Christmas time. Together we have left a trail of love and goodness behind us. Here is some of the things we have done:

  • Restocked the MK Food Bank with over £1,300 worth of food.
  • Provided 62 Christmas hampers for needy families.
  • Sent a gift to honour a retired minister who was instrumental in MKCC being started.
  • Sent a gift to the widow of an AOG minister who went to be with the Lord this year.
  • Provided gift bags for senior citizens in a local sheltered housing complex.
  • Provided hampers for a few senior citizens.
  • Given away over £3,500 as part of our love at Christmas project. Read just some of the ways this has been done here.
I am so glad that 100's of people this year when they think of MKCC the first thing that will come to mind is Goodness! Well done guys!!
