When your soul’s in despair, change your focus.
In light of what’s going on in culture there are times I feel a sense of despair as did the author of Psalm 42 which I just read.
In these times of frustration, fear or despair – I remember whose I am and who I am and focus on God who is my hope.
When I thank Him it builds my trust. When I praise Him it changes my perspective.
Declaring God’s goodness helps dispel my despair.
BJ & Janet were married in July 1977
They have three grown children who are all married: Jeremy & Whitney Rutledge, Chris & Julie Hurst, and Josh and Hannah Rutledge. They also have five grandsons, and a granddaughter.
BJ says perhaps our greatest legacy is even though our kids are PK's, they love Jesus and are all involved in ministry in the local church.
BJ has served at churches in Dallas - Bossier City, LA - Houston - and was at Fellowship of the Woodlands (Woodlands Church) in The Woodlands before coming to Grace Fellowship.
BJ is the Legacy Pastor at Grace Fellowship Church in Paradise, TX.
