Put your attention to the apple in this video. Think of the apple as the object of your shame. You may be feeling shameful after hurting your best friend 5 years ago during high school. Or perhaps you've had an affair and ashamed to tell your spouse. Often, shame turns us to God and seek His mending and healing power.

"Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us." 1 Peter 2:12 (niv)

End of Trouble

"I can see the light
that is coming
for the heart
that holds on,..

And there will be an end
to these troubles,
but until that day comes

still I will praise You,
still I will praise You!.."

This is one of my favorite Zoe song, "You Never Let Go". As I was driving on the way to my daughter's school to check the team list if she made the volleyball team, I saw something that must, forever, be painted in my digital camera! Thank You, God, for your art!

When the sky opened up, rays shone through the dark clouds. It was thundering and lightning! We, the family, ate at Wendy's that eve. A strong storm passed through and literally knocked out the power! Most of the girls at Wendy's screamed from the top of their lungs! Mothers rushed to the dark bathrooms to check on their children.

And we scream, crying out to God, each time our lives have been shaken by the thunder and lightning of life's problems! As we endure each of our storms of life, there will always be a time when God's grace shines on us all! There will always be a light shining on the confusions we wrestle with. There will always be an "end" to each of our troubles. But, until that day comes, until that end happens, we should always continue to praise God!

And, oh, by the way, my daughter, Amanda, made the 8th grade volleyball team!

God bless you!

Deaf Bible Studies (UStream)

In case you got LOST and normally we're used to helping LOST people (chuckles), check out these recorded deaf bible studies via UStream:

Gospel of John (Sundays)
Book of Genesis (Wednesdays)

And, FYI, we're having issues with the wifi connection in room 104 during the deaf worship time. As for now, we will work on the kinks (bugs) and hope to get the deaf worship LIVE asap!

Have a great week!

Highest Office

A very special thanks to Kasey Vessel for bringing up this subject. Her father was nominated to become an elder in their local church.

Guess what is the highest office in our land?

It is not the President of the United States.
It is not being recognized the richest man in the world (Forbes).

Read on:

"James A. Garfield was the twentieth president of the United States, serving less than four months before he was assassinated. He was a member of the church and served as an elder. When Garfield relinquished his role as elder, it is said that he stated,

I resign the highest office in the land to become president of the United States.

Serving as an elder in Christ’s church is the highest position a man can attain on this earth."

Awesome, huh? And, Amen!
