Churn Churn Churn to Turn Turn Turn!

Dear Friend,

Consider the meaning of churn, a vivid word that speaks of agitation and swirling confusion. Our lives constantly feel the churn, churn, churn of life’s demands.

When we feel the churn, what do we do? We turn! We turn and re-center ourselves on the Lord who loves us and on the loving people God gives us!

When Jesus says things like, “Let not your heart be troubled” or “In this world, you will have trouble” you know it’s because he wants to bring peace into the midst of our churn.

In the midst of churn, churn, churn simply turn, turn, turn Jesus, using the words of the song title by the Byrd’s based on the Book of Ecclesiastes, Turn! Turn! Turn!

Turn to your Lord and turn to the people refreshers in your life, the people whose kindness brings joy to your heart and puts steel in your back bone!

“For I have derived much joy and comfort from your love, my brother, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through you.” Philemon 7
