I'm going to copy what I posted on Facebook yesterday:

Church was awesome today, it was just what I needed to hear. The chaplin talked about Faith and Courage. He said 'Faith is taking God at his word, and Courage is our willigness to act in faith despite our fears.' This one spoke right to my heart: 'You may have failed, but you have another opportunity, a second chance to get it right.'

I'm so glad my husband went to church with me. We both needed to hear that. The last couple of weeks were pretty rough for the both of us. We had so much anger inside our heart and kind of lost our way, our fire, our enthusiasm ... but yesterday showed us again that God is still in control.

I enjoyed the lessons this week. It was centered around the idea of , "It is time to commence prayer". Of course there was a whole lesson to do with the title. But it was all about prayer. That is one things that I have really felt drawn to do and learn more about lately. For me this was another verification that I really do need to strengthen my prayer life.
We also had communion. I hate to admit it but a lot of times I don't get a lot of out communion. But yesterday it really spoke to me about being redeemed and set free.

Our sermon was about the beattitudes...specifically, on the first one...that you are blessed (happy) if you are poor in spirit...then we explored what exactly being poor in spirit meant...
how God truly reaches out to and hears the humble, and what pride can do to your relationship with God.

we meet in a school, because we haven't built our building yet (own land, but still cutting through red tape for permits, etc.) and the school is extremely rigid on the time we are allowed to be there, so we get sunday school lesson and sermon kinda all rolled into one.

I also found out that I get to sing a special on the 21st. I am going to sing "thank You for the things I never thanked You for" by the Issacs. It's a great song, and I hope I can accurately express the message of it.

They all sound GREAT!

Kerstin, WOW! I think you know & understand that is really powerful IMO as well! Thank you for sharing!!!

Mattiez, I want to improve my prayer life too... I want to do a Women of Faith study at some point... Adventurous Prayer.

Angela, that really touches my heart (the poor in spirit message) & I bet you do beautifully. I'm in the choir but could never (well, we'll see what the Lord says about it anyway ) sing a solo.

I'll come back & add my notes later!

My notes...

"Souled Out, Freedom in Slavery"
Romans 6-8 (concentrating on 6:14-23, 8:5-8, 7:14-25)

Those who take control must take responsibility.

Reasons why people don't go "all in":
  1. Comfort
  2. Convenient
  3. Control
  4. Can be critical
  5. Feel accepted/liked/justified
  6. Bondage to debt
(If pushed many will fight or leave.)

Why we like being in control:
  1. We think control = power.
  2. We think we can set the standard & make the rules.
  3. We work when & where we want to.
  4. We think we have veto rights.
Proverbs 16

The truth about control:
  1. God is in control & He alone has the power to make the rules.
  2. We are all slaves... either slaves to our sinful nature or slaves to righteousness.
  3. Slaves to sinful nature = death.
  4. Slaves to righteousness = life & peace.

Galatians 5:22-23

Daily submitting to God's control:
  1. "God, You are in control."
  2. "Today is Your day & I am Your servant."
  3. "Jesus, I am your ambassador."
  4. "Jesus, today I will bring light to a dark world."
  5. "I will bring truth in a world full of lies."
  6. "Where You say go, I will go."
  7. "What You say do, I will do."
