The fun part about Karen's Korners is the sharing. I share; you share!
This is something that Becky Ahrendsen emailed shortly after we got home from Hawaii, from a youth program, I think. In light of sporting seasons being so active right now and individuals and teams being in tournament play, it is a good one to share:
"Our devotions last night were so appropriate for my kids in sports. Psalm 47:7-11:
7 - Sing to the LORD with thanksgiving;
make music to our God on the harp.
8 - He covers the sky with clouds;
he supplies the earth with rain
and makes grass grow on the hills.
9 - He provides food for the cattle
and for the young ravens when they call.
10 - His pleasure is not in the strength of the horse,
nor his delight in the legs of a man;
11 - The LORD delights in those who fear him,
who put their hope in his unfailing love.
And the devotion talked about striving to achieve is only part of the success of any endeavor. God gives strength and ability to do work. Our talents are truly from God and worth many songs of praise."
