Note: This will likely be the last journal note post made to this blog. Mom and Dad are scheduled to return from Virginia on Wednesday. After their return, I will be starting to post on their new blog, Labors of Joy. I will post a link to the new blog when it is ready.
March 6. I was glad when they said unto me, “Let us go into the house of the Lord.” I was so thankful for Sunday -- to be able to meet with God’s people, sing hymns of praise together, and be refreshed, rebuked, reminded, and my soul restored through the teaching and preaching of the Word. This past week was so busy. Thank you, Lord, for a day of rest.
Mrs. Ogle had charge of the ladies’ Sunday school class and played part 2 of session 18 of a series of lessons by Jim Berg called “Taking Time to Quiet Your Soul.” The title of today’s lessons was “Overcoming Your Anxiety and Fear.” It contained some very good food for thought.
In the morning service, Pastor Ogle preached from James 1-4 on trials, “Not Fun But Necessary.”
This evening, Timothy Makin preached on the Word of God, giving a broad overview of what the Word of God says about itself and its importance in our lives. “The Word of God is a written glimpse of God’s character. In order to obey God’s Word as He prescribes, we must obey God’s Word in totality and in faith.”
“7And they brought the colt to Jesus, and cast their garments on him; and he sat upon him. 8And many spread their garments in the way: and others cut down branches off the trees, and strawed them in the way. 9And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna; Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord: 10Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest.” Mark 11:7-10
