Online Ministry 0924 - 0930 2018


Lord of joy and mercy, be with us as we seek your voice and your guidance. Remove the obstacles that block our commitment and help us to truly be your disciples. AMEN.

Psalm 124

124:1 If it had not been the LORD who was on our side -- let Israel now say --
124:2 if it had not been the LORD who was on our side, when our enemies attacked us,
124:3 then they would have swallowed us up alive, when their anger was kindled against us;
124:4 then the flood would have swept us away, the torrent would have gone over us;
124:5 then over us would have gone the raging waters.
124:6 Blessed be the LORD, who has not given us as prey to their teeth.
124:7 We have escaped like a bird from the snare of the fowlers; the snare is broken, and we have escaped.
124:8 Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.




A Study in Failure
Even if good people fall seven times, they will get back up. Proverbs 24:16 (CEV)
We usually think of failure as a negative experience. But wise people know how to take advantage of failure. They learn from it. They make the most of it. They use it as an education. Instead of becoming a victim of your failures, study them just as a scientist would do. Be curious, and turn bad days into good data.
—Dr. Daniel Amen


God, as we contemplate the gifts we offer in gratitude for your many blessings, remind us once again: if it had not been for you, Lord, if not for your love and generosity, we would not be here. We give our thanks in your name, which is above all names. AMEN.
