HEY…I just realized what I forgot! This week we’ll be finishing up our short (or long, depending on your attention span) study of Psalm 103. This week, we’ll be reading v 15-22. As you read it, what do you learn about yourself…what does it reveal about God to you?
Has anyone ever said, or have you said to yourself “God is in control.”? What does that mean to you? Has that phrase ever made you feel worse instead of better? (it has for me) What does it really mean that God is in control? That He’s got the remote? That He’s got an oil field? What about when things go wrong…where does that fit in to His control?
Stuff to think about.
On another note…have you read The Shack (we carry it in the Corner bookstore)? I have…and wow. Just, wow. I highly recommend this book, especially for those struggling with the question of pain and God’s will. It’s really a good read, and I believe it will give you a refreshing sense of personalization in your relationship with God. But that’s just my opinion. You may hate it….I don’t know.
One more thing. Donald Miller (author of Blue Like Jazz, and someone I dearly appreciate) prayed at the DNC. His prayer has really sparked a lot of conversation…and there are a lot of different opinions about the content of the prayer. I’d like to hear your thoughts on it. Not about the fact that he was praying at the DNC…that’s a no brainer. If someone asks you to pray, in my opinion, you pray. So I don’t want to discuss the partisan, political stuff. What he said in the prayer….that’s what I’m pondering. I’d like to hear your thoughts,, because I’ve heard all my own. Below is the video
By the way….has that dude lost weight or WHAT? I’ll be first in line at the bookstore to buy his “Blue Like Jazzercize” book.
