Find Rest My Soul - I Will Not Be Shaken

Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; 
My hope comes from Him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation;
He is my fortress, I will not be shaken.
My salvation and my honor depend on God;
He is my mighty rock, my refuge.
Trust in him at all times, O people;
Pour out your hearts to him,
For God is our refuge.
Psalm 62:5-8

Mike Bickle's Sermon 7/26/15

Kaedyn's Artwork and Bible Verses

The earth is the Lord's, and everything in it. 
Psalm 24:1
God so loved the world 
that he gave his one and only Son, 
that whoever believes in him 
shall not perish but have eternal life.
John 3:16

I have enjoyed the time I've spent with the grandkids this summer.
Their school starts next week!
Yes, it is still JULY!!

Lighthouse in the Storm

I see your tears.
I listen to your prayers.
Whatever situation you are in,
Whisper My Name.
When your strength is gone,
I will lift you up in my strong arms.
I am your high tower,
Your lighthouse in the storm.

by Karen Rice

The name of the Lord is a strong tower
The righteous run to it and are safe.
Proverbs 18:10

Misunderstanding

Isn't it funny how easily we can misunderstand each other?

One hot summer day, Daddy was on the porch and I heard him yell in an urgent voice, "Karen, get me ice water!"

I must have been about 6 years old. As quickly as I could, I opened the freezer, loosened the cubes from the metal ice tray by running it under warm water, climbed up and got a glass out of the cabinet, and filled it with ice and water.

The whole time, Daddy was saying, "Hurry up?"

"Wow, he's really thirsty!" I was thinking.

I rushed the ice water out to him, and he smiled and shook his head. A wasp buzzed around him as he asked again, "Karen, get the fly swatter."

BLESSED HOPE

For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men, instructing us to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus, who gave Himself for us to redeem us from every lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds.
Titus 2:11-14 NASB

A Bible teacher that I admire is Joel Richardson. You can hear him teaching on The Return of Jesus Christ, Our Blessed Hope, on his blog: Joel's Trumpet.
