Online Ministry for the Week 05/15 - 05/21 2017


Lord, open our hearts and minds by the power of your Holy Spirit, that as the Scriptures are read and your Word is proclaimed, we may hear with joy what you say to us today. Amen.


From The Book of Life

Psalm 66:8-20

66:8 Bless our God, O peoples, let the sound of his praise be heard,
66:9 who has kept us among the living, and has not let our feet slip.
66:10 For you, O God, have tested us; you have tried us as silver is tried.
66:11 You brought us into the net; you laid burdens on our backs;
66:12 you let people ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water; yet you have brought us out to a spacious place.
66:13 I will come into your house with burnt offerings; I will pay you my vows,
66:14 those that my lips uttered and my mouth promised when I was in trouble.
66:15 I will offer to you burnt offerings of fatlings, with the smoke of the sacrifice of rams; I will make an offering of bulls and goats. Selah
66:16 Come and hear, all you who fear God, and I will tell what he has done for me.
66:17 I cried aloud to him, and he was extolled with my tongue.
66:18 If I had cherished iniquity in my heart, the Lord would not have listened.
66:19 But truly God has listened; he has given heed to the words of my prayer.66:20 Blessed be God, because he has not rejected my prayer or removed his steadfast love from me.


Step by Step
Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. Galatians 5:25 (NIV)

Small steps equal big results. By adding simple habits—sleeping a bit more, moving your body, calming your mind, breathing, playing, serving—you will gradually, day by day, shift into a profound capacity for self-care and healing. Making these small changes move you forward toward better health and vitality while allowing you to see how manageable and doable The Daniel Plan lifestyle can be.

Gracious God, you are the Lord of heaven and earth. You sent Christ your Son to fully reveal your abundant and deep love for all you have created. We long to be more like Jesus who kept your commandments in every respect. Let our thoughts and deeds be directed by your Spirit of truth, who lives in our hearts. Amen.
