The other day I read an article that came in the mail about a family that had moved to Grand Haven. I was immediately drawn in to read it when I saw the title: “Blessed Beyond Measure.”

I always like hearing that people acknowledge being blessed. It implies that this “being blessed” comes from a source outside of themselves.

About the writer: The Rev. John Koedyker is pastor of congregational care for First Reformed Church of Grand Haven, presently on leave serving as interim minister at Ferry Memorial Reformed Church in Montague.

Pastor, When speaking , do you not also rely on the Holy Spirit specifically as well as your faith? As far a struggles and challenges you went through, do they not continue? Just some thoughts.
