Psalm 138

I give you thanks, O Lord, with all my heart; I will sing your praises before the gods.

I bow before your holy Temple as I worship.

I praise your name for your unfailing love and faithfulness; for your promises are backed

    by all the honor of your name.

As soon as I pray, you answer me; you encourage me by giving me strength.

Every king in all the earth will thank you, Lord, for all of them will hear your words.

Yes, they will sing about the Lord’s ways, for the glory of the Lord is very great.

Though the Lord is great, he cares for the humble, but he keeps his distance from the proud.

Though I am surrounded by troubles, you will protect me from the anger of my enemies.

You reach out your hand, and the power of your right hand saves me.

The Lord will work out his plans for my life—for your faithful love, O Lord, endures forever.

Don’t abandon me, for you made me.


Devotion by Chris Shiver

I am thankful for the way that God is working through our church now.  Even though it is a time of uncertainty and transition, with many unanswered questions about the way forward, our congregation is stepping forward to meet the challenges and seek the right path.  Today we had a work day to help keep the NGH functional, and many stepped forward to work hard on a hot day.  It has been a blessing to me that whenever I have spoken out to the congregation about a Properties need the right persons have consistently stepped forward to serve, and it’s not always the same people.  And I have seen that when others have expressed a need that there is usually a helpful response.  I believe that we see how God is at work amongst us when we each step forward to do what we can.


My Prayer:

Jesus, I pray that I will hear when you are calling me to step forward.  I also thank you that I have been given the privilege of worshiping in a community of faithful people.  Amen.
