ACTS – Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving, Supplication

Lord God, our Heavenly Father. You are our one and true God. We adore and praise You. You are our hope, our need, our salvation. Without You, we are nothing. We are privileged to have been reigned by a just and merciful King that is You. Your will be done here on earth as it will be in heaven.

Forgive us our sins, Heavenly Father, and give us the strength and the will to forgive those who have sinned against us. For we are not perfect.

Your Purpose In Life

Your Purpose In Life

A funny thing happened to me about two months ago.  I was searching the Net for one’s purpose in life.  You know, sometimes you get tired of doing the same things no matter how varied they may be.  Did I just contradict myself?

Earth’s Final Sunset

Astronomers predict that the earth will be swallowed up by the sun in 7.6 billion years.  However, life on earth will probably end sooner than 1 billion years – it will become very hot to live on.

Some scientists believe there’s a way to escape the sun’s wrath by using a passing asteroid’s gravity to budge the earth out of harm’s way.  Now, there’s another plot for a new sci-fi movie.

I always wonder why the days and months come by so fast.  When I was still in school the days seemed slower.  I guess maybe it’s because we are slowly getting closer to the sun (it takes less time to revolve around the sun).  I’m saying this as a half-meant joke.
