Psalm 98

So the seminary is putting together a year long devotion for women on the Psalms. I have been blessed enough to be able to write onf ot the devotions that will be appearing on August 13th 2011. The passage I have been meditating on to write the devotion is Psalm 98.

Psalm 98
Praise the King
1 Sing a new song to the Lord, for He has performed wonders; His right hand and holy arm have won Him victory. 2 The Lord has made His victory known; He has revealed His righteousness in the sight of the nations. 3 He has remembered His love and faithfulness to the house of Israel; all the ends of the earth have seen our God's victory. 4 Shout to the Lord, all the earth; be jubilant, shout for joy, and sing. 5 Sing to the Lord with the lyre, with the lyre and melodious song. 6 With trumpets and the blast of the ram's horn shout triumphantly in the presence of the Lord, our King. 7 Let the sea and all that fills it, the world and those who live in it, resound. 8 Let the rivers clap their hands; let the mountains shout together for joy 9 before the Lord, for He is coming to judge the earth. He will judge the world righteously and the peoples fairly.

My devotion is Due Feb. 1 and I am nearly completed. The Lord has taught me so much as I have studied this passage and I have been truly encouraged, especially by verse 3. Praise the Lord that He remembers us! We are so unworthy, and He is so full of love and faithfulness. Please join me in praying for God's grace in this challenge to be an encourager through God's Word to other women!

In Christ,

blogger abandonment

I am so sorry that i have not updated the blog in what seems to be forever. Everything is still going quite well in the Malko's household. Jon and I are both still working away. Jon begins the new semester tomorrow, and i begin Monday, the home improvements are still well on their way, and pictures will come soon. Sorry I have been so negligent.

Something we are looking forward to is the beginning of the Wednesday Night Media ABF (Adult Bible Fellowship). Since Jon is the head of the video production at Highview, he severs all morning on Sunday's, as do all of the volunteers that work with Jon. On Feb. 10th Jon and Brandon ( the who is on staff and runs sound on Sunday am) will begin an ABF for those volunteers who do not get to be a part of one on Sunday mornings. They are going to be doing a Bible study using the book crazy love, and also working on technical skills to help enhance the media ministry! I am excited to serve with Jon in this ministry, and am praying the the Lord will bring a group that can be dedicated to studying the word and serving him through media at Highview Baptist Church! Join us in praying for this new ministry opportunity!
