I preach in a town an hour away (Leader) on Sunday. The request came as their pastor is currently on a mission trip to Niger.
I began to cast through my memory and find some thoughts that have stuck with me over the years. Psalm 90 kept surfacing.
In an effort to see what I have preached on the topic, I went looking for a sermon I knew I had preached (I have a small card detailing the main points). Apparently, for all my filing abilities, that particular sermon is not to be found.
So I had to actually rewrite the sermon – based upon a few words on a card and a whole Psalm in the Bible! Not a bad approach. I look back over the past six years and can see these prayers have stretched my life. Here are the main thoughts from Psalm 90:13-17:
- Surprise me with your love
- Give me as many good days as bad days
- Show me what you are doing
- Captivate me with your majesty
- Make my work meaningful
Should be an interesting Sunday!
