My Redeemer Lives!!

What a wonderful day of worship we had yesterday! How about you? Since we have finished our First Principles classes, we are in the process of finding a Sunday School class at church. There are so many to choose from! We had received an invitation from a woman whose husband leads one of the small groups, so we attended that class yesterday and LOVED it! What a lovely group of people and they made us feel so welcome! Church was fantastic, Sunday School was a blessing...sigh...I LOVE Sundays!! Don't you just feel so recharged on Sunday? I know I do!

So my Old Testament reading this morning continued in the Book of Job. Ugh - poor Job!! He is being so sorely tested and to add insult to injury, his "friends" are full of accusations - "oh surely he brought this suffering upon himself" - don't people just love to point fingers??!! Job is in pure agony. It is painful to read his words...this is truly a man nearing the end of his rope. And then I saw these words:
"But as for me I know that my Redeemer lives, and he will stand upon the earth at last. And after my body has decayed, yet in my body I will see God! I will see him for myself. Yes, I will see him with my own eyes. I am overwhelmed at the thought!" Job 19:25-27
Even in the midst of immense, intense suffering, Job professes his faith in the Lord! And as I read that first verse, the words "my Redeemer lives" stood out.

That song is today's Music Monday selection. There is a line in the song that moves me to tears...I'm sure you'll know it when you hear it. Be sure to scroll down and "pause" my player before you play today's song! By the way - how do you like the new addition? I have been working on it for a while now...I'd love your feedback! And as always, I wish you a truly blessed week!
