Hello readers! It has been such a blessed Sabbath for me today. It’s that time of the year for me again, where I finally get pinned down by the flu bug. Not the kinda girl that is susceptible to colds and the like, so when I do get it, it becomes my Flu of the Year. 🙂
Sorry, bear with my occasional nonsensical rambling.
Oh ya, what was I saying again? Blessed Sabbath! It was nice being able to attend church service with my family since I miss being with them almost every week as Sunday school coincides with the service they attend (1st service). Pastor Mok KH was sharing in the pre-worship devotionals about desiring God’s presence, as how Psalm 16 described – He makes known to us the path of life, in His presence there is fullness of joy and at His right hand, pleasures forevermore.
I need to experience the delight and joy of being in His presence more so that it becomes second nature for me to commune with God and escape from the distractions and busyness of life just to be with the Great Lover of my soul…
We are starting a short series of sermons on the book of Ruth. Pastor Kok Aun preached from Chapter 1 today. Although the highlight of this book is the love story between Ruth and Boaz, the underlying theme really is about God’s love and goodness throughout.
What seemed to be the most tragic of circumstances, God turned around for good when one woman, Ruth, decided not to indulge in self-pity or bitterness but to look forward in hope to the God she had worshipped.
