Have a blessed week in the Lord!
We’ll be adding this song to our Sunday worship list:
I am drawn to all the verses in the Psalms that praise God as our refuge, our shelter, our strong tower. What comfort in difficult times!

I love the Lord, for he heard my voice;
he heard my cry for mercy.
Because he turned his ear to me,
I will call on him as long as I live.
The Lord is gracious and righteous;
our God is full of compassion.
I will offer to you the sacrifice of thanksgiving
and call on the name of the Lord. ~From Psalm 116

On my facebook page on Good Friday, many of my friends posted something along the lines of, “It’s Friday but Sunday’s coming!” And it bothered me. Not that it isn’t true, because of course without the resurrection our faith is futile (1 Corinthians 15:1-19). But, because on Good Friday, our focus should just be the cross. Good Friday is not a party. It’s a time to reflect on the suffering and death of Jesus. As one of our songs from that evening says, “It was my sin that held Him there until it was accomplished. His dying breath has bought me life, I know that it is finished.” So our music focused on the cross.
Here was our order of service:
Come, Ye Sinners, Poor and Needy
How Deep the Father’s Love for Us
Scripture Reading: Isaiah 53:4-6
The Power of the Cross
When I Survey the Wondrous Cross
“Love so amazing, so divine, demands my soul, my life, my all.”
I’m so excited to be celebrating Palm Sunday with our church tomorrow. Here’s the order of worship for April 13, 2014: (click on highlighted titles to listen)

Preparing our hearts for remembering the ultimate price paid for our redemption.
