Welcome to OCC online
Welcome to the online version of our Sunday gathering at OCC. Thankful for pastor Brent teaching this morning. As most of you have heard I have had a very rough week. Fever, coughing, headaches, and some difficulty breathing. I was tested for COVID-19 on Monday – that came back negative on Tuesday and I had a phone appointment with my DR. She put me on an antibiotic for a bronchial infection. It has seemed to do the job and I am starting to feel a little better.
Psalm 23 This beautiful Psalm reminds us that God is our constant, caring Shepherd and faithful Guide. In Him alone do we have hope, both in this life and through eternity:
The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
Thank you that you are our good Shepherd and we can trust you with our lives. We’re so grateful for your leadership, your guidance and care in all our days. Thank you that you restore our souls, give us peace, and bring us hope in all our tomorrows. Your protection and strength surround us like a shield, and we never have to fear. Thank you for your goodness and love that follows after us, chases us, even when we’re unaware. In you alone is true rest and peace. We praise you for the assurance that we will dwell with you forever.
In Jesus’ Name,
