September 25, 2016

No Sunday School lesson today.

Psalm 42:1-5 - v1 As the deer pants for stream of water, so I long for you, O God. v2 I thirst for God, the living God. When can I come and stand before Him? v3 Day and night, I have only tears for food, while my enemies continually taunt me, saying, "Where is this God of yours?" v4 My heart is breaking as I remember how it used to be: I walked among the crowds of worshipers, leading a great procession to the house of God, singing for joy and giving thanks---it was the sound of a great celebration! v5 Why am I discouraged? Why so sad? I will put my hope i God! I will praise Him again---my Savior and my God!
