This week’s “Thursday Quote Day” features another quote from pastor and author Tim Keller:
“Trials and troubles in life, which are inevitable, will either make you or break you. But either way, you will not remain the same.” (Tim Keller Walking with God Through Pain and Suffering)
“I love you, O Lord, my strength.
The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer,
my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge,
my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.” (Psalm 18:1-2)
When we put our trust in God, he becomes our everything. He becomes one in whom we can take refuge in times of trouble and anger. He is the strength that helps us through the times when we are weak. He is the rock that we can cling to through all the storms in our lives. He is the shield that protects us from all the dangers that can attack us. He is our stronghold that we can settle and live in hope. Let us have that trust in the Lord. Let us hope in Him. Let us follow after Him.
This week’s “Thursday Quote Day” features a quote from former Super Bowl winning coach and now commentator Jon Gruden:
“Life isn’t easy, but you never quit. Never. I may not have been the best, but I can always give my best. that’s how you demonstrate toughness.” (Jon Gruden)
Today was the beginning of Star Wars Celebration, the Star Wars convention that brings people around the world together for all things Star Wars. As part of the kickoff to the weekend, they premiered the new trailer for the upcoming film Star Wars: The Force Awakens. After just watching it, here are some quick thoughts:
1) There was more depth to the trailer (which was to be expected). The initial shot of the crashed X-Wing which then revealed the crashed Star Destroyer was pretty epic way to start it off.
2) Love the voiceover by Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker. This trailer tied a little more into the original cast but still left a lot in mystery. There’s a shot of Luke hooded (with his robotic hand no longer covered) with R2 & later handing someone a lightsaber. And at the end of the trailer there’s the awesome shot of Han Solo & Chewbacca with Han saying “We’re home.” Where is home?
3) Lots of action with the new cast. It’s safe to say that John Boyega, Daisy Ridley & Oscar Isaac are going to have huge roles in this film and they look like they’ll be great in carrying the film.
I’m so looking forward to December.
