Grand Knight’s Message for April

Hello Brothers,

Thomas Young, GK
Thomas Young, GK

I want to wish everyone a Happy Easter. We will be having our second annual Easter Egg Hunt on Easter Sunday at 2:00 p.m. in the field behind parish hall. Everyone is invited, so come out and enjoy the festivities. We need Knights to come and stand guard and pray on Holy Thursday April 13, 2017 between 8:30 p.m. – 12:00 a.m. in the parish hall, contact Tom C. 727-846-0392 to schedule your time. I did this last year and it is a very humbling experience.

“I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.” 2 Timothy 4:7

So often, when people make mistakes, they get down on themselves and think, “If only…” “I should have…” “What if…?” It’s easy to feel like you’ve missed the best plan for your life. That’s when people get discouraged and stop pursuing their God-given dreams. But understand today, just because you’ve made a mistake or failed in some way doesn’t cancel God’s plan. God never disqualifies you. He never says, “Go sit on the sidelines. You’ve blown it too many times. You’ve got too many weaknesses.” No, God always gives you another chance!

Some of the great people in the Bible made very poor choices. The apostle Paul started off as a murderer, yet his destiny was bigger than his mistakes. He ended up becoming a great leader and writing over half of the New Testament.

What am I saying? Our mistakes, our failures, our poor choices don’t have to keep us from our Godgiven destiny. With God, it’s not about the way you start in life, it’s about the way you finish. Receive His grace today and embrace the bright future He has in store for you!

Christ Lives and God Bless,
Thomas Young G.K.
