Gid is my Helper

“God is my helper; The Lord is the sustainer of my soul.” (Psalm 54:4 NASB)

The Lord is your Helper. He will always sustain you.

If you put your trust in Him, God will honor that and WILL come through for you and do whatever it takes to bring you to other side… past the obstacle, past the dilemma, past the hardship that you are facing now.

God is your deliverer. Put your hope and trust in Him.

He will see to it that you are provided for in every way.

Weekend fun for the whole family. Off-road motorcycles and ATV quads took to the tracks off Mondon Hill in Brooksville on Jan. 6, 2018.

“The Coyote Hare Scrambles have been going on for years at this location; it's one of the best tracks,” said Rob Swann with the Nature Coast Trail Blazers. “It challenges the riders with hills, turns, just about everything a rider will encounter is on this track.”

Coming into the game between Hernando County archrival schools Springstead and Nature Coast, Nature Coast head coach Dave Pisarcik joked that Springstead’s head coach Matthew McGarry always circled this game on the calendar because he hadn’t beaten NCT in a basketball game since 2009. And like all NCT-Springstead games, the Shark Tank was flooded with fans representing both sides, which made it clear that this game wasn’t any different than previous meetings.

That last statement is somewhat true, the only difference being how this contest ended.

Two things you can count on for the national holiday Monday (Jan. 15th) celebrating the life and legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr.:

First: In addition to parades and rallies with all the political trimmings, much will be said about the famous civil rights leader and his mesmerizing and memorable oratory calling for racial justice.

Second: While his calming demeanor and non-violent advocacy probably will be mentioned, little if anything will be said of his calling to be a minister of the gospel and his stirring, Bible-based sermons.
