Thanks for stopping by.  I'm pastor of First Baptist Church in Dupo, IL.  You can visit the church website for information on the church: www.fbcdupo.org.  Here I hope to share some inspiration and perhaps a few tales from the winding road…this journey called life, where God can be seen in the moments of our day if we are looking for Him.  ~Roger~

Thought for the Day

Even when we don't sense God's presence, His loving care is all around us.

Words to live by...

Those who seek Him will praise the Lord.  Let your heart live forever!
Psalm 22:26

In Brief

Brevity is the hallmark of Psalm 117.  In just 30 words (actually just 17 words in the Hebrew text) the psalmist said all he had to say.

Contained in this hallelujah psalm is a message to all nations of the world that God's "merciful kindness" --- His covenant love --- is "great toward us" (Psalm 117:2).

Think about what God's love means.  God loved us before we were born.  He will love us after we die.  Not one thing can separate us from the love of God that is in Jesus our Lord.  His heart is an inexhaustible and irrepressible fountain of love.

There is no greater encouragement for our journey than the reminder of God's merciful kindness.
