Update

What we were afraid would happen before the procedure today did happen last night - Kim miscarried. It was horrible, but thankfully Michael was asleep. Betsy Moers stayed at the house with Micheal while I rode in the ambulance with Kim to Corpus. Allen Ray followed us down there. Kim's doctor met us there and they did the DNC last night around 11:30. We were so thankful that we already knew that we had lost the child before Kim miscarried or it would have been absolutely terrifying. Allen Ray and I got home about 2:00 this morning, aftern they got Kim in her own room. Michael hasn't woken up yet. When he does, we'll head back down there to get Kim. Her doctor said she could go home this morning.

Thank you so much for the prayers and encouragement. It has meant a lot to Kim to read your emails. We are all fine, but rattled. I love all of you and I am so thankful for you. I'll post more later, Michael just woke up.

We recognize that this happening is one of the mysteries. all we can do is trust God. Our prayers and thoughts are with you.

Racing with Horses, Walking on Water, and Accepting My Weakness

I am tired of Hurricane Harvey. I am ready for all of this to be done and for things to settle down. I long for the routine, familiar, and predictable.

I have had enough of trying to limit or mitigate the effects of Harvey on my family and property. I have become worn out trying to control and make sense of how my church is recovering from the hurricane. I am just about through with the ongoing, and seemingly never ending, management issues related to hundreds of volunteers funneling through my church on a weekly basis to assist our community in the recovery efforts. The logistics of making it all work week in and week out, the delicate dance of being the pastor to all the personalities involved, is exhausting.

Add to this my broken heart for our community. I receive gut punches every day as I listen to the stories of evacuation, recovery, and rebuild. I steel myself to being able to do what I can each week and letting everything else go.

I am sick of people saying the Lord will not l…

Where is My God?

Though the fig tree should not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines, the produce of the olive fail and the fields yield no food, the flock be cut off from the fold and there be no herd in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord; I will take joy in the God of my salvation. God, the Lord, is my strength; he makes my feet like the deer’s; he makes me tread on my high places. Habakkuk 3:17-19

Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me?  Put your hope in God,
for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God. Psalm 42:11

“I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.” John 14:8

When, where, and how will I see the goodness of my God and praise him? After the events of this past weekend, this is a fair question. I am heartbroken by the devastating loss so many families are experiencing. I realize the path ahead is painful and difficult. I did not ask for any of this. When will things get better?

When I attach my faith, security, and sense of God’s presence to material …

First Baptist Church Rockport Update from Pastor Scott, December 6, 2017

This will be a comprehensive update providing as much information as I can to our church members. I will begin by saying something to all our partner churches and concerned individuals around the world who are following our situation in Rockport-Fulton. Details on various aspects of church life will follow.

Information for Partner Churches and All Those Concerned for Rockport-Fulton Once again I want to thank all the churches, families, and individuals who have prayed for us and helped us since Hurricane Harvey. We are well into rebuilding and remodeling our property. In many ways our church building will be better than it was before. The rebuilding and remodeling should be completed by March. I think God is working on the hearts and minds of our church members as well. We are being renovated, remodeled. We will not be the same church we were before the storm.

There is still great need in our community. I believe that food, clothes, toiletries, and the like are readily available in ou…
