Cherish the Little Things

Due to years of living in various places and pouring my life into the churches where I served, I never really found a place to call home. It wasn’t until 2014 that I realized I would plant in Upstate South Carolina. I am an only child, so I began to invite my parents to live in the area. My mom took me up on it. My dad visits a few times a year. In fact, he is here until Monday night. With changes in their health, I try to cherish the memories of the past and make good memories now. 

Many of us rush through life. If you’re like me, you worry through it. You worry about your finances. You worry about your family. You know God will take care of it, but you worry anyway.

While you are worrying, the devil is robbing you of moments when you could be enjoying your children and spouse, friends, other family, and most importantly enjoying the Lord and recognizing His blessings.

Jesus reminded the crowd who was listening to the sermon on the mount that God takes care of the flowers and birds. Will He not take care of human beings who are created in His image?

When you are tempted to worry, stop and remember that God has always been faithful. He will always take care of your needs. Cherish every little thing, because you may not have it tomorrow.

Author: Matthew Winters (The Comeback Pastor)

Born and raised in Portsmouth, VA, I eventually landed in upstate SC because when God calls I move. I gave my life to Christ in 1987 and surrendered to the call to ministry in 1997. I am a three-time graduate from Liberty University and Theological Seminary: BS in Religion (2003), the MA in Religion (Leadership concentration - 2006), and the Master of Divinity (Pastoral Ministries - 2013). I have served as a worship leader and senior pastor in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia since 1996. After experiencing a divorce, God graciously gave me my wife, Jennifer, whom I married in September 2015. Between the two of us, we have 6 children. I am the Lead/Founding Pastor of Overcomers Church in Walhalla, SC, a church plant that is helping those who have been overcome by life to become Overcomers in Christ. Jennifer and I both love people and long to see them enter into a relationship with Christ and walk in the power of His Spirit. I pray that these thoughts I share will challenge and inspire you to greater heights and deeper depths for the glory of Christ.
