4 Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness!
You have given me relief when I was in distress.
Be gracious to me and hear my prayer!
2 O men, how long shall my honor be turned into shame?
How long will you love vain words and seek after lies?
3 But know that the Lord has set apart the godly for himself;
the Lord hears when I call to him.
4 Be angry, and do not sin;
ponder in your own hearts on your beds, and be silent.
5 Offer right sacrifices,
and put your trust in the Lord.
6 There are many who say, "Who will show us some good?
Lift up the light of your face upon us, O Lord!"
7 You have put more joy in my heart
than they have when their grain and wine abound.
8 In peace I will both lie down and sleep;
for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.
Just look again at that last verse you just read. Isn't that awesome! It is the Lord alone who makes us dwell in safety. Even as there are dangers all around us, and even though we suffer pain and loss, we are still safe in the Lord and we can still go to sleep at night in PEACE no matter what the circumstances. Whether we have just lost a loved one, have been diagnosed with a dreadful disease, have gone through a break up of a marriage or have lost a relationship of any kind; we can know for certain that we still have peace, because the Lord is with us. He is our shelter, our refuge, and our strength!
If you are having a difficult time in your life right now, just repeat verse 8 over and over again. His Word is powerful enough to bring peace to your life where there is no peace. His Word casts out the darkness, His Word casts out sin! His Word restores, heals, and give eternal life!!
Let us pray: Thank you for letting me lie down and sleep in Your safe arms, O Lord. In you will I put all my hope and trust. Amen.

YESTERDAY'S BIBLE QUIZ: Who was Balaam?
(Answer from Pat King)]
Oh! This is another easy one. He was the dude with the donkey. A talking donkey, no less. Who, you might be surprised to learn, was the distant ancestor of Mr. Ed. The talking horse of TV fame.

We'll be looking at different rough drawings of economical ways that we can accomplish what we want to do to accommodate our growing congregation and support the future of our church! EVERYONE IS WELCOME TO ATTEND THIS MEETING!!
Unfortunately over the past several years, they have barely broken even on these dinners. The parents usually donate the desserts and even much of the other food out of their own pockets. Without that the youth would probably lose money.
It is especially important that they make money this year, as they will need all they can get to make their goal for the National Youth Gathering in new Orleans.
I want to encourage you all to attend these dinners, and, while there is no set price per person for these dinners, a generous free will offering is strongly encouraged!!
Below is the Menu for each week:
d potato bar
taco bar w/all the fixings
As always, thank you for your continued support of the future of Christianity!!!
