This Weekend – Has your life ever been spared? Yes, no, not sure? I think that someday in eternity we just may found out about the time or times that our lives were spared. We talk about a friend of mine who was pronounced dead at a hospital in Las Vegas years ago when he was 22 years old. He had been in a terrible auto accident. The Catholic chaplain on duty administered the last rites. His parents were called back in Atlanta to inform them of the news. Then a second call was made to them: he was alive but barely hanging on. It was quite an emotional roller coaster to say the least. He has something to say about God sparing your life and mine! What Pat says about life, death, and God’s purpose for your life just may change your life today!

WHO’S YOUR SHEPHERD?
Message 12, Airing Week of 1/14/2019
This Week – Do you remember a time when you were extremely thirsty? Maybe it was years ago in a difficult situation. Perhaps it was more recent than that. The Psalmist actually prays that the Lord would give him a spiritual thirst for the Lord. He compares it to a deer “panting for the water” of a stream or brook. We are to want a relationship with the Lord in a similar way. Do you?
Monday (1/14) – We begin with a story about a famous World War two veteran from Columbus, Ohio. His name was Capt. Eddie Rickenbacker. He spent 24 days in a life raft on the Pacific Ocean after the crash of a B-17. His experience with thirst aptly sets up this message about thirsting after a relationship with the Living God. Let it speak to you today!
Tuesday (1/15) – As strange as this may sound to you, the desire for righteousness IS righteousness. Jesus would say in the beatitudes that “the person who hungers and thirsts for righteousness” is righteous. Tell me what you hunger and thirst after in life, and I can tell a great deal about you! We become like that which we seek after!
Wednesday (1/16) – We look at verse five that says, “Why are you downcast, O my soul?” Being downcast may be a term to describe how you feel right now at this moment. It may describe some of the depression, disillusionment, or disappointment going on in your life. The Psalmist gives some answers to his own problem. Let his answers speak to you about your situation!
Thursday (1/17) – We actually quote the lyrics of a song that my sister, Cathy wrote. Someone listening today to these lyrics will connect to them emotionally and spiritually. I really believe that. This Psalm was an inspiration for her song lyrics that you will hear today. We quote another hymn that Eddie Rickenbacker said lifted him up out some of the depths being stranded in a life boat on the ocean.
Friday (1/18) – We close with a story about the funeral of a retired FBI agent that I knew during my ministry in Dallas, Texas years ago. What one of his sons said at his dad’s funeral may just have a tremendous impact on you. Seriously, all he said was one sentence! You need to hear that sentence. It relates to Psalm 42 in a powerful way.
