Psalm 93

1   The Lord reigns; he is robed in majesty;
        the Lord is robed; he has put on strength as his belt.
     Yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved.
2   Your throne is established from of old;
       you are from everlasting.

3   The floods have lifted up, O Lord,
       the floods have lifted up their voice;
        the floods lift up their roaring.
4   Mightier than the thunders of many waters,
       mightier than the waves of the sea,

        the Lord on high is mighty!

5   Your decrees are very trustworthy;
       holiness befits your house,
        O Lord, forevermore.


Be Thou My Vision 

Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart
Naught be all else to me save that Thou art
Thou my best thought by day or by night
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light

Be Thou my wisdom and Thou my true word
I ever with Thee and Thou with me Lord
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son
Thou in me dwelling and I with Thee one

Be Thou my battle shield, sword for the fight
Be Thou my dignity, Thou my delight
Thou my soul's shelter, Thou my high tower
Raise Thou me heavenward, O power of my power

Riches I need not, nor man's empty praise
Thou mine inheritance, now and always
Thou and Thou only first in my heart
High King of heaven my treasure Thou art

High King of heaven, my victory won
May I reach heaven's joys, O bright heaven's Sun
Heart of my own heart whatever befall
Still be my vision O Ruler of all


I Can't Even Walk

I thought number one would surely be me
I thought I could be what I wanted to be
I thought I could build on life's sinking sand
But now I can't even walk without you holding my hand

   Oh Lord, I can't even walk without you holding my hand
   The mountains too high and the valleys too wide
   Down on my knees that's where I learned to stand
   Oh Lord, I can't even walk without you holding my hand

I thought I could do a lot on my own
I thought I could make it all alone
I thought of myself as a mighty big man
But Lord I can't even walk without you holding my hand


   Chorus

I think I'll make Jesus my all and all
And if I'm in trouble on his name I'll call
If I didn't trust him, I'd be less of a man
'Cause Lord I can't even walk without you holding my hand


   Chorus

Oh Lord, I can't even walk without you holding my hand


King of My Heart

Let the King of my heart
Be the mountain where I run
The fountain I drink from
Oh, he is my song
Let the King of my heart
Be the shadow where I hide
The ransom for my life
Oh, he is my song

   You are good, good, Oh
   You are good, good, Oh
   You are good, good, Oh
   You are good, good, Oh

Let the King of my heart
Be the wind inside my sails
The anchor in the waves
Oh, he is my song
Let the King of my heart
Be the fire inside my veins
The echo of my days
Oh, he is my song

   Chorus

You're never gonna let
Never gonna let me down (4x)

   Chorus

When night is holding on to me
God is holding on (2x)


An Unlikely Vision
Exodus 3:1-12
ecclesia examen
Steve Gilbertson

Soon we will celebrate our tenth anniversary as a worshiping church family. It's been
a fantastic ride! This milestone provides us a perfect opportunity to take an extended
look at ourselves with a series of messages called "ecclesia examen." Along the way
we'll consider such questions as, "Who are we?" "How did we get here?" and "Where are
we going?" Are you ready to begin? Let's go!

Exodus 3:1-12

3 Now Moses was keeping the flock of his father-in-law, Jethro, the priest of Midian, and he
led his flock to the west side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God.
2 And the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush. He
looked, and behold, the bush was burning, yet it was not consumed. 3 And Moses said, "I will
turn aside to see this great sight, why the bush is not burned." 4 When the Lord saw that he
turned aside to see, God called to him out of the bush, "Moses, Moses!" And he said, "Here I am."
5 Then he said, "Do not come near; take your sandals off your feet, for the place on which you
are standing is holy ground." 6 And he said, "I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the 
God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob." And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look at God.

7 Then the Lord said, "I have surely seen the affliction of my people who are in Egypt and have
heard
their cry because of their taskmasters. I know their suferings, 8 and I have come down to
deliver
them out of the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of that land to a good and
broad
land, a land flowing with milk and honey, to the place of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the
Amorites,
the Perizzites, the Hivites. and the Jebusites. 9 And now, behold, the cry of the people of
Israel
has come to me, and I have also seen the oppression with which the Egyptians oppress them.
10 Come,
I will send you to Pharaoh that you may bring my people, the children of Israel, out of
Egypt." 11 But
Moses said to God, "Who am I that I should go to Paraoh and bring the children of Israel
out of Egypt?"
12 He said, "But I will be with you, and this shall be the sign for you, that I have sent you:
when you
have brought the people out of Egypt, you shall serve God on this mountain."
