崇拜

2007年下午6:03,卡罗琳·玛哈尼

stockxpertcom_id541912_size1_2昨天,马哈尼一家从丹德里奇开大篷车回家,在田纳西州,我们在一起度过了两个愉快的星期,为我们的家庭故事书增添了许多有趣和特别的回忆,我们将在未来的几年里细细品味。Thank you,斯科特和莱萨·贝克,Bill和Cheri Kittrell以及诺克斯维尔基石教堂for your unbelievable kindness to us,once again!!

为了让我们做好准备,不仅要享受和感激我们的假期,也要领悟上帝借着这喜乐的恩赐所显出来的品格,my husband read the following C.S.刘易斯在第一天的晚餐时给我们的家人引述:下载兴发pt首页登录

“快乐是荣耀之轴,因为它触动了我们的情感……我试过……让每一种快乐都成为一种崇拜的通道。我不是简单地感谢它。当然要感谢,but I meant something different…Gratitude exclaims,very properly,“上帝给我这个真是太好了。”崇拜者说,“那些遥远和短暂的焕发是这样的人,他们的素质一定是什么呢?' One's mind runs back up the sunbeam to the sun….If this is享乐主义,,这也是一项相当艰巨的纪律。But it is worth some labour."(as quoted in,,When I Don't Desire God,by John Piper)

These insightful words by Mr.刘易斯帮助我们理解感激和崇拜之间的区别,并激励我们每个人努力使我们的暑假成为一个崇拜的渠道。”“

今天——放假的第二天——当我打开手提箱时,do loads of laundry,and head off to the grocery store to restock the refrigerator,I am attempting to make my工作into"崇拜的通道”……尽管我必须承认,这项纪律有点难,但尽管如此,right and fitting.所以我今天的祈祷:天父,help me to adore you not only for the gift of pleasure but also for the gift of work.

与主同在

Micah_davis_2今天早上,我们得知三岁的迈卡·戴维斯回家与上帝同在。You may rememberMicah的妈妈,Kriscinda,她大胆地表达了对上帝的信仰她的儿子与癌症作斗争。

我们的心为卢克、克里斯蒂娜和他们全家而悲伤。在我们的悲伤中,我们也很高兴你的little man"现在没有痛苦和痛苦,站在我们主面前。

Throughout this lengthy trial,戴维斯对上帝的积极信任激怒了我们。Luke and Kriscinda have opened up their lives and pursued the grace and comfort that comes from the community of believers in the local church.As a result,they have encouraged all of us at Covenant Life Church to put our faith in our loving Savior as we face trials in our own lives.

To the Davis and Miller families—our love and prayers are with you.
