PSALMS FOR LIVING READ BY TERRY LOWRY
Discussed by Terry Lowry
with Host of the What's UP Radio Program

Today’s Psalms for Living is taken from 18:46The Lord lives and blessed be my rock and exalted be the God of my salvation.”

Have you heard the song by Hillsong: “Closer than You Know”?  Listen as Terry reads from the devotion today and describes why this is a favorite song of Mark Lanier’s. God is not just “fluff” in your life; He should be – and demands to be – your “whole” life. He is not something to fill your Sunday mornings. God is more than an idea. God is to be praised and exalted in everything you do, say, and think.

SURRENDER
Discussed by Pastor David Fleming
with Champion Forest Baptist Church (www.ChampionForest.org)

Day 3

For the past several weeks, Champion Forest Baptist Church Pastors David Fleming and Averri LeMalle have been encouraging us with a sermon series: “Getting Through What You’re Going Through”.

Everyone has struggled with grief in their life – and that grief looks different to everyone. However, there are five stages of grief that we all experience. The first three are: shock, struggle, and sorrow.

This week, Pastor Fleming will be discussing the fourth, and quite possibly, the most important stage of grief: Surrender. We all must, at some point, surrender our grief to the Lord. Surrendering means we are willing to accept what we cannot change and only God can provide the comfort we so desperately need.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Don’t let others make you feel guilty about the manner in which you grieve. Sometimes holding on to the pain and grief is beneficial – for a time, but not for forever. Pastor Fleming says: “Unforgiveness is a poison we prepare for someone else but we drink ourselves.” We are not punishing them; we are punishing ourselves.

Make a fist. Do it. Hold your hand tight in a fist. Don’t let go! Hold it tight until you hand throbs. Now, slowly let your fingers open and feel the relief as your blood begins to flow again. This is how it feels to forgive.

How do you accept what is hard to accept? After you lean up on the Lord and you have let go of the pain, you need to learn to live again.

Why were King David’s servants confused with his worshipful spirit after his son’s death?

Is it wrong to continue to live your life the way you did before tragedy struck?

Pastor David Fleming encourages you to visit Champion Forest Baptist Church in NW Houston this Sunday! CFBC has Life Groups classes (Sunday School) for all ages and walks of life, including Mark Lanier’s Biblical Literacy Class, as well as several service times and locations to choose from.
