Will Michigan's smoking ban get overturned because of Upper Peninsula's Baraga?

Getting my head and my heart straight before going to church

The roar of a waterfall is truly majestic, but it is quite a different matter to be in the water hurtling toward the falls. That may be the situation you are in today.


It's a few minutes past 6:30 a.m. on Sunday and I'm trying to get my head and my heart focused in the right direction before we go to church.

Today I'm reading the devotion above from Our Daily Bread based on Psalm 93 which seems so relevant to those living under some type of immediate stress.

It's the difference between being on the sidelines watching a waterfall and being in the water approaching a waterfall. Will you go over the falls?

I know that right now there are many who face physical, financial and relational problems that seem overwhelming and like going over a waterfall.

But God is greater than all of this.

For me, I've been reminded through a bunch of old family pictures that I've been scanning that "the Lord reigns. He is clothed in majesty."
