Siblings

Humorous look at leaving your younger children under the charge of an older sibling. This sounds like what would happen at my house. It is nice to be able to leave the children at home for short trips but you never know what you might find when you return.

How Can You Love Someone Who Rejects You?

The following scene from the movie Fireproof is profound.

1 John 4:10-12

10 In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 12 No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us. ESV

1 John 4:19 We love because he first loved us. ESV

Love Dare Book

For Donna along with many prayers.

Never Take Your Eyes Off The Conductor

My daughter and I spent the weekend at the University of Alabama for Orchestra All-State. The conductor for her orchestra was very good, in addition to entertaining enough to keep the youth’s attention for long days, 9:00 AM – 9:00 PM one day. He spent the whole time reinforcing the need to never, ever take your eyes off the conductor, because you may get ahead, behind, or miss your cue.

Doesn’t that apply so much to our Christian Life? How often do we take our eyes off the Lord and worry about our “part” just to find that we have gotten out of step with the Lord the next time we look at Him.

Ps 119:37 Turn my eyes from looking at worthless things; and give me life in your ways. ESV

Ps 145:15 The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food in due season. ESV

Prov 23:26 My son, give me your heart, and let your eyes observe my ways. ESV

Mic 7:7 But as for me, I will look to the Lord; I will wait for the God of my salvation; my God will hear me. ESV

Thankfully the Lord is a perfect and holy conductor that will never lead us astray.

Aren’t you glad the Lord is in charge and not Victor Borge?


Hope you enjoy this video.

What Are You Doing With What You’ve Been Given?

Ever complain about having enough time or energy to do all that the Lord would have you do?

Do you think you just don’t have any reason to encourage others because your life is so difficult?

Are you grumbling or giving thanks?

Num 14:27 “How long shall this wicked congregation grumble against me?” ESV

Ps 105:1 Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon his name; make known his deeds among the peoples! ESV

After watching this video see if you can still complain!

About Nick Vujicic

It says in James 1:2, “Consider it pure joy, my Brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds.

It seemed like a tall order to “count” hurt, pain and struggle as nothing but “pure joy” when my birth date arrived. My parents were Christians; my Dad was even a Pastor of our church, so that verse was quite familiar to them. However, on the morning of December 4th , 1982, in Melbourne, Australia, the last two words on the minds of my parents was “Praise God!”. Their firstborn son had been born without limbs! There were no warnings or time to prepare themselves for it. Having no answers at all, the doctors were completely shocked and taken off guard!

The whole church mourned over my birth and my parents were absolutely devastated. “If God is a God of love,”  they questioned, “Then why would He let something like this happen, and especially to committed Christians?” My Dad did not think I would survive for very long. But, tests proved that I was a healthy baby boy with just one hitch, I’d been born without any limbs.

Abide With Me

Friday night, during an Orchestra Concert, one arraignment played contained the tune Abide With Me by Henry F. Lyte (1793-1847).

ABIDE WITH ME

Abide with me; fast falls the eventide;
The darkness deepens; Lord with me abide.
When other helpers fail and comforts flee,
Help of the helpless, O abide with me.

Swift to its close ebbs out life’s little day;
Earth’s joys grow dim; its glories pass away;
Change and decay in all around I see;
O Thou who changest not, abide with me.

Not a brief glance I beg, a passing word;
But as Thou dwell’st with Thy disciples, Lord,
Familiar, condescending, patient, free.
Come not to sojourn, but abide with me.

Come not in terrors, as the King of kings,
But kind and good, with healing in Thy wings,
Tears for all woes, a heart for every plea—
Come, Friend of sinners, and thus bide with me.

Thou on my head in early youth didst smile;
And, though rebellious and perverse meanwhile,
Thou hast not left me, oft as I left Thee,
On to the close, O Lord, abide with me.

I need Thy presence every passing hour.
What but Thy grace can foil the tempter’s power?
Who, like Thyself, my guide and stay can be?
Through cloud and sunshine, Lord, abide with me.

I fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless;
Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness.
Where is death’s sting? Where, grave, thy victory?
I triumph still, if Thou abide with me.

Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes;
Shine through the gloom and point me to the skies.
Heaven’s morning breaks, and earth’s vain shadows flee;
In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me.

More Favorite God Honoring Hymns

Mrs. Janie sent these as a couple of her favorites.

Be Thou My Vision

 

“Lamb of God”

 

Lamb of God

Your only Son, no sin to hide
but you have sent Him
from your side;
to walk upon this guilty sod
and to become the Lamb of God.

Your gift of love they crucified
they laughed and scorned Him
as He died;
the Humble King they named a fraud
and sacrificed the Lamb of God.

O Lamb of God sweet Lamb of God
I love the holy Lamb of God;
O wash me in your precious blood
my Jesus Christ the Lamb of God.

I was so lost I should have died
but you have brought me to
your side;
to be lead by your staff and rod
and to be called a lamb of God.

O Lamb of God sweet Lamb of God
I love the holy Lamb of God;
O wash me in your precious blood
’til I am just a lamb of God.
