I was pondering today on the goodness of God.  I am blessed beyond measure.  Even when tough days come, I am amazed at the grace of God and His hand on my life.  He has blessed me with a great wife whom I am madly in love with (Sorry if that got too mushy).  I have two awesome kids who bring joy to my life.  There is never a dull moment at the Cheney house.

God has allowed me to pastor full-time and do what I love to do.  Preach the Word of God and shepherd His people.  He has given me a wonderful church family who are faithful in so many ways.  Not to mention God has allowed me to live in the Ozarks, in what I believe is one of the most beautiful places there is to live.  (I sometimes feel guilty that while missionaries are in remote places, I am in NWA) 

What an awesome God!  In the words of the Apostle Paul when he wrote to Timothy, “Because He has counted me faithful, calling me into the ministry.”  I am glad to be doing what God has called me to do.  A husband and father first, and a pastor to the greatest people in the world.

  1. And, from all this you, in turn, bless us with your ministy. I think I speak for the congregation when I say God has blessed us by having you and your family here. May we prosper and grow.
