Good, bad, meh?

Pretty good on my end. I think I found a good small group to join Very Happy

We've been going through The Story, which is the Bible retold more like, a novel or something.

We don't often go to church (not many Sabbath keeping churches near our area, since those are what we do go to when we do), so earlier today we listened to some sermons online about the biblical holy days and studied about that. Smile

Today, part of it was about Jesus being tempted by the devil. Our pastor pointed out that one of the root words that "devil" came from means "divider." So, think about it. When you see people divided, that's usually the devil at work.

I visited my aunt's church today and they were having a baptismal service...outside near the river in town! It was a really cool service and listened to some inspiring testimonies from the couple getting baptized.

Yesterday church was good. I learned that God places us in certain places and in certain times that is perfect for his plan. My mother and I came to church late and dillydallied getting out of the car because she wanted to park just right. But we were walking up to church just as a woman we know was leaving.. and she was crying. My mother asked to pray for her - she prayed then the woman left and we went into church. If the timing was different that wouldn't have happened. I wish I was more like my mom sometimes.
The sermon was about the Glory of God.
I got that book (from the church library) that Strider mentioned the other day "The Grand Weaver" by Ravi Zacharias and my dad has read it too and said it was good. I started reading it when I got home. Smile

It was good. Smile
The pastor read Psalm 103 today before the sermon. Here's the whole thing, and I highlighted some of it that stood out to me while I listened. The sermon today is on worship. Smile

Psalm 103 (ESV) wrote:
"Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and all that is within me,
bless his holy name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits,
who forgives all your iniquity,
who heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit,
who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
who satisfies you with good
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.

The Lord works righteousness
and justice for all who are oppressed.
He made known his ways to Moses,
his acts to the people of Israel.
The Lord is merciful and gracious,
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
He will not always chide,
nor will he keep his anger forever.
He does not deal with us according to our sins,
nor repay us according to our iniquities.
For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;
as far as the east is from the west,
so far does he remove our transgressions from us.
As a father shows compassion to his children,
so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear him.
For he knows our frame;
he remembers that we are dust.

As for man, his days are like grass;
he flourishes like a flower of the field;
for the wind passes over it, and it is gone,
and its place knows it no more.
But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting
to everlasting on those who fear him,

and his righteousness to children's children,
to those who keep his covenant
and remember to do his commandments.
The Lord has established his throne in the heavens,
and his kingdom rules over all.

Bless the Lord, O you his angles,
you mighty ones who do his word,
obeying the voice of his word!
Bless the Lord, all his hosts,
his ministers, who do his will!
Bless the Lord, all his works,
in all places of his dominion.
Bless the Lord, O my soul!"
