Good lessons from an unexpected source...Tiktok :)

  God does work in mysterious ways.  He speaks to us even in Tiktok. And this is what my fave friars will be talking about below.  Enjoy.  

Psalm 77: One of the best psalms that I have read

 





1 I cried out to God for help;

I cried out to God to hear me.


2 When I was in distress, I sought the Lord;

at night I stretched out untiring hands,

and I would not be comforted.


3 I remembered you, God, and I groaned;

I meditated, and my spirit grew faint.


4 You kept my eyes from closing;

I was too troubled to speak.


5 I thought about the former days,

the years of long ago;


6 I remembered my songs in the night.

My heart meditated, and my spirit asked:


7 “Will the Lord reject forever?

Will he never show his favor again?


8 Has his unfailing love vanished forever?

Has his promise failed for all time?


9 Has God forgotten to be merciful?

Has he in anger withheld his compassion?”


10 Then I thought, “To this I will appeal:

the years when the Most High stretched out his right hand.


11 I will remember the deeds of the Lord;

yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.


12 I will consider all your works

and meditate on all your mighty deeds.”


13 Your ways, God, are holy.

What god is as great as our God?


14 You are the God who performs miracles;

you display your power among the peoples.


15 With your mighty arm you redeemed your people,

the descendants of Jacob and Joseph.


16 The waters saw you, God,

the waters saw you and writhed;

the very depths were convulsed.


17 The clouds poured down water,

the heavens resounded with thunder;

your arrows flashed back and forth.


18 Your thunder was heard in the whirlwind,

your lightning lit up the world;

the earth trembled and quaked.


19 Your path led through the sea,

your way through the mighty waters,

though your footprints were not seen.


20 You led your people like a flock

by the hand of Moses and Aaron.


21 In your majesty, you led them safely;

you guided them with your mighty hand to that sacred land.


22 You once struck down the great sea creatures;

you scattered your enemies with your mighty arm.


23 The heavens declare your glory, O God,

and the skies proclaim the work of your hands.


24 Day after day they pour forth speech;

night after night they reveal knowledge.


25 They have no speech, they use no words;

no sound is heard from them.


26 Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,

their words to the ends of the world.


In awe and wonder, I contemplate your creation, O Lord,

Your power and might are beyond comprehension.


27 You are the One who led our ancestors in the wilderness,

the One who parted the waters and made a way.


28 In our time of distress, I seek your face,

knowing that you are faithful and true.


29 Though I may not see the path ahead,

I trust in your guidance and sovereignty.


30 I will praise you, O God, for your faithfulness;

your works are marvelous and true.


31 You are the Rock on which I stand,

my refuge and strength in times of trouble.


32 I will sing of your love and mercy forever,

for your goodness endures through all generations.


33 I will meditate on your wonders, O Lord,

and remember your faithfulness in times of old.


34 You are the God who works wonders,

who leads and guides your people with love.


35 In you, I find comfort and hope;

my soul finds rest in your embrace.

The 12 Apostles

  In these days he went out to the mountain to pray; and all night he continued in prayer to God. And when it was day, he called his disciples, and chose from them twelve, whom he named apostles; Simon, whom he named Peter, and Andrew his brother, and James and John, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon who was called the Zealot, and Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.

The Book of Job: Synopsis and Lessons

  The Book of Job is a part of the Hebrew Bible and the Old Testament of the Christian Bible. It is considered one of the most profound and challenging books in the Bible. The central character is Job, a wealthy and righteous man living in the land of Uz. He is known for his piety and devotion to God. Job's life takes a dramatic and tragic turn when Satan challenges his faithfulness. Satan suggests to God that Job's righteousness is a result of his prosperity and that he would curse God if he were to face suffering. God allows Satan to test Job's faith, but with the condition that he does not harm Job physically. Job's suffering begins with the loss of his wealth, his children, and his health. He is afflicted with painful sores and is left in misery. Throughout his ordeal, Job's friends, Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar, come to visit him and attempt to provide explanations for his suffering. They suggest that Job must have sinned grievously to warrant such punishment, u
