10 Alive Recap

Friends,

Last week we discussed verse four of ‘Amazing Grace.’ We talked about how grace sees us through our tough times.

God is indeed bigger than any problem we have, however, we wouldn’t be human if we didn’t admit that it sometimes feels like God is far away from us. Robyn suggested that at those times we don’t feel God’s presence because our focus is on ourselves. You can’t see what you refuse to look for. My former pastor told the story of driving with his wife. In front of them was a pickup truck. In the cab the young girl was sitting close to her boyfriend, My pastors wife said “Why don’t we sit like that anymore.” He replied ” I haven’t moved.”

God is always there and what’s more He wants to help us in our times of need. Keep your focus on Him.

I will not be with you tomorrow. Jamie, Jake and I will be running the ‘Hot Chocolate’ 9 miler in Atlanta. Please discuss the 4th verse of’ Amazing Grace’

The Lord has promised good to me.
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.

1) What is the ‘good’ God has promised to us?

2) What is our ‘hope’ and how does His word secure it?

3) How is God our ‘shield’ and ‘portion’?

See you next week, if I survive the race.

John
