"Proverbs 11:14 “Where there is no counsel, the people fall; But in the multitude of counselors there is safety.” Proverbs 12:15 “The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, But he who heeds counsel is wise.” Proverbs 19:20-21 “Listen to counsel and receive instruction, That you may be wise in your latter days. There are many plans in a man’s heart, nevertheless the LORD’s counsel—that will stand.” Since I have known the privilege of working with Elaine Kay, she has been an invaluable source of counsel in my life.
She humbly worked and prayed with me as I worked each week to get sermons cohesive and understandable. She was a wonderful Biblical reference provider; often pointing out several other scriptures that supported God’s plan for each service, and she prayerfully sought God’s best for our small church. In fact, if she was here, I would have asked for her prayer and guidance in writing even this! There were times that we had different perspectives, but every time, Elaine was submitted and committed to God’s truth being the final word; and I know God appreciated that.
Every one needs someone to sharpen iron with, and Elaine did that prayerfully and respectfully. She committed a large part of her prayer life to praying for our congregation and for every aspect of ministry. The church was alive with praise music whenever Elaine was in the building. I am excited to see what God has blessed her with in her writings; and I hope that you will be rewarded with her ideas and input as I have been."
