Welcome to my blog… 

Hi there,

I’ve often desired a way to share what the Lord has laid on my heart with our congregation and the community, but found it difficult to do using traditional means.  This blog is my attempt to share my heart with you and build a deeper level of communication with both the Living Hope Community Church congregation and others in the world who are interested.

I’ve been reading through the Psalms and praying through our hymn selection for tomorrow’s worship service.  I found the hymn “Praise to the Lord, the Almighty” and discovered that it is based on Psalm 103.

I love the first stanza of this hymn:  “Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, the King of creation!  O my soul, praise Him, for He is thy health and salvation!”

I love the first verses of Psalm 103:  “Bless the LORD, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.” (Psa 103:1-5 NKJ)

I’m eager to share and sing these truths in worship together this Lord’s day.

Blessings in Christ,

Pastor Ryan
