  • “Abel was a keeper of sheep.” – Genesis 4:2
    As a shepherd Abel sanctified his work to the glory of God, and offered a sacrifice of blood upon his altar, and the Lord had respect unto Abel and his offering. This early type of our Lord is exceedingly clear and distinct. Like the first streak of light which tinges the east at sunrise, it […]

This week I was looking over hymns that we sing and cherish. In this observation I noticed the writing of them came from a combination of two motivations. The first was a deep relationship and devotion to our Lord and the second was a tragic or very difficult time in the persons life. So, in essence they were born out of a love for God and His presence and help during a crisis. This is also reflected in many of the Psalms that were written. So, what better place to go for comfort and encouragement than the Psalms and to our Hymn books.

Think of the words of this Psalm as you remember David had just finished the battle with Absalom and had been seated again as King of Israel.
Psalms 40:1 I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. 2 He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. 3 And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD. 4 Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies. 5 Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.

Think of these words as Fanny Crosby pens them after becoming blind because of a Doctor’s mistake. It is said that Fanny never got bitter over her situation, but instead grew into a young woman who “Saw” God in everything around her and every circumstance she faced in life. What made the difference for her?

Tell me the story of Jesus,
Write on my heart every word.
Tell me the story most precious,
Sweetest that ever was heard.
Tell how the angels in chorus,
Sang as they welcomed His birth.
“Glory to God in the highest!
Peace and good tidings to earth.”

Tell of the cross where they nailed Him, writhing in anguish and pain.
Tell of the grave where they laid Him, tell how He liveth again.
Love in that story so tender, clearer than ever I see.
Stay, let me weep while you whisper,
Love paid the ransom for me.

DLT

Thank you for your comments and likes on our posts. It is a blessing when something you post is an encouragement to others.

2019!!!! Someone, please wake me up! I must be dreaming! Here we are beginning a new year and last year has become history, this year as already begun to be spent.

This is the 6th day of this new year, how are you doing so far? Last week I passed out envelopes asking you to take one of the 3X5 cards and put on it what your goals are for the coming year or to put on the card what you would like to see our Lord do in your life this year. I would like to make several suggestions. One, if there is a decision that you know you need to make or an area of obedience which needs your response, let me encourage you to take care of it right away. Start this year off by obeying what you know the Lord wants you do. Two, have you ever personally led a person to Christ? If not, why not make this a personal prayer request and a personal goal? If you do not know how to lead someone to Christ, would you be interested in a class designed to learn how to lead someone to Christ? If you have led someone to Christ in the past, but you haven’t in a while, why not make this a prayer request to the Lord and a personal goal for this year? Three, have you ever read the Bible through from cover to cover? If not, this would make another great goal for this coming year. I have a Bible reading schedule that can help you in achieving this goal. It will help you keep track of what you have read and what you have left to read. This could also be a great learning experience as you read these new areas and this new knowledge generates new questions. Four, do you have any family of friends that are not saved? This would also be a worthy goal in praying for their salvation, whether you lead them to Christ of you have someone go with you to try to lead them to Christ. Five, do you have some family or friends that are saved and are not going to church anywhere? This, again, could be a worthy prayer request and goal to see them attending the church, hearing the word, growing in grace, and living in victory. These are just a few areas in which our Lord could be glorified this year through your life. If this were the last year you were to live, what would you like to see accomplished through this last year of your life? Something to ponder isn’t it? Remember, only one life, twill soon be past. Only what is done for Christ will last. There is much to ponder when you start looking at everything in light of eternity.

This picture looks like she is trying to get away and I am holding her back.... :~)

When It All Began!

On January the fifth, nineteen hundred and seventy-five,
Four and one-half years after I received my bride,
I trusted Christ as my Saviour,
That decision changed my life and my behavior.

It was after this momentous occasion,
My thinking changed and so did my vision.
I began to see things and people in a different light,
There was a difference between what used to be wrong and right.

But what changed the most and affected the rest,
Had little to do with the organ that beats in my breast.
It was the seat of emotions that the Bible calls the heart,
It was changed at that very moment and began a brand-new start.

From that day forward everything changed,
My life’s decisions and priorities had been rearranged.
Now after these almost forty-four years,
What I want is not recognition or an earthly career.

It’s now my Heavenly Father to please,
And to see others and things the ways He sees.
To see through His eye’s earthly things and people,
As the Spirit discerns between the temporal and eternal.

It’s now plain to see why my Saviour has come,
So, the sins of mankind would be forever gone.
Heaven and earth will one day pass away,
But, His eternal word and the souls of men will forever stay.

Every Church has a make up that is quite unique,
It’s filled with individuals that are different in how they think and speak.

And yet we are really not so different individuals though we be,
If we look at each other through our Lord’s eyes, we can clearly see.

And as I have watched our Church during this past year,
I’ve noticed a common thread that makes each one so dear.

It’s not the talent, charm, or wit of the ones that call this home,
That keeps us coming back to this Church to gather together before God’s throne.

It is the LOVE and GRACE of our great God, our gracious heavenly Father,
He loves us in spite of us, OH! Why does He even bother!!

But wait! Could that be the reason we are all still here?
We are learning to show GRACE through the trials and the tears.

And could it be that the LOVE of God that lives inside of me,
Is the common thread that binds us to each other, OH could it be!

Could God’s forgiveness by His LOVE & GRACE be that which bind our hearts to His?
Could it be that trials and tears is what it’s going to take for us to learn to FORGIVE?

Could it be that those who have gone and did not choose to stay,
Are those who are still to learn more of His LOVE & GRACE?

The race isn’t to the swift nor is it to the strong,
It is to those who are faithful through their whole life long.

OH, Brother and Sister please FORGIVE me when I sin,
And I too will FORGIVE you as together we become more like Him.

And then we, like our Heavenly Father,
Will find FORGIVENESS is a blessing and really not a bother.

And then one day when Christ shall come, and we are ALL gathered together,
Then! Then! …. JOY, LOVE, and PEACE, PEACE, PEACE, will reign FOREVER!!!!

Merry Christmas to My Church Family!
December 22, 2018

It is December 22nd, two thousand eighteen,
And it’s the 5th Christmas we together have seen.

As I think back on these past almost 5 years,
I remember the burdens, trials, heartaches, and tears.

I remember many joys, victories, and triumphs, we’ve had.
I remember many long nights when our hearts were heavy and sad.

I remember the times when we rejoiced and praised our Lord.
I remember the Church services where we preached God’s Word.

I remember decisions that changed your life.
I remember the peace that replaced the turmoil and strife.

I remember the fusses I mediated for some.
I remember the surrender and now the tranquility of your home.

I remember the surgery where we sat for hours and prayed.
I remember the relief when we heard the report the Doctor had made.

I remember the feeling of joy in the air,
When we saw how our Great God had answered our prayer.

I remember the sorrow of soul that filled our heart,
When our loved ones went to heaven, this world to depart.

But the greatest of all earthly blessings that a Church can know,
Is that we went through all these experiences together and in the Lord we did grow.

I thank my God for all these memories so dear,
And I thank God for your love and loyalty through these almost 5 years.

My Sweetheart saw this poem and showed it to me. I thought it appropriate to share with our Church Family.

If you look for me at Christmas

If you look for me at Christmas,
You won't need a special star.
I'm no longer just in Bethlehem,
I'm right there where you are.

You may not be aware of me
Amid the celebrations.
You'll have to look beyond the stores
And all the decorations.

But if you take a moment
From your list of things to do
And listen to your heart, you'll find
I'm waiting there for you.

You're the one I want to be with,
You're the reason that I came,
And you'll find me in the stillness
For My love for you will never change.

Love, Jesus

Christmas is not in stuff, glitter, shopping, meals, or gifts. Christmas is about the Gift that was given. It has become very commercialized, glamourized, and now even politicized. Christmas is about the fulfilment of a promise for the salvation of a lost condemned world. “And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us (and we beheld His glory as of the glory of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” John 1:14 Remember Who and what this day is about.

Thanksgiving Day has passed, and the Christmas Holiday is approaching, at least according to the calendar. However, every day is a day of thanksgiving for the child of God. There is not a day that goes by we should not have a thankful heart. Even when we are going through trials our Lord is present with us, the Holy Spirit lives within us, and we have the word of God to guide us. We are truly a blessed people! As far a Christmas, we really don’t know when our Lord was born to Mary. We do know the Shepherds were in the fields keeping watch over their flocks by night. But much like the Lord’s supper, it is a great time to remember that our heavenly Father sent His Son, born of a virgin, to be our sinless Lamb to take away our sin and the sin of the World. Jesus is our Passover Lamb, He is the propitiation for our sins and not for ours only, but for the sin of the entire World. That is all the more reason to be perpetually THANKFUL!

On another note, do you remember the beginning of this year or the end of last year, when you may have set some goals for yourself? It may have been that you decided that this year was going to be the time when you read your Bible through or you were going to lose some weight or try to win and disciple at least one soul? Maybe it was some other goal, but the question is, how are you doing in reaching the goal that was set? Maybe your goal was to be more consistent in reading your Bible, praying, witnessing to others, increasing your Missions commitment, tithing for the first time. Whatever your goal was, how are you doing in reaching that goal? If you didn’t set any goals, why not? If we have a vision for our family, our ministry, or our personal life, we sill set some goals to seek to achieve that vision. Your goal may have been to have a quiet time with the Lord every morning, to seek to lead your first soul to Christ, to give out a certain number of gospel tracts. It just depends on what your vision is for your life and for your family. You may have set a goal as a parent to teach your children how to shake hands, answer the phone, how to study the Bible, how to pray, or how to have a servant’s heart and serve others. I’m not sure what your goals are or will be for the coming year. But for sure they will come out of your vision. Look through the pages of Scripture and decide characteristic of Christ you or your family still lacks and plan to see that change. You will then find yourself changing, conforming to the image of Christ. A great way to end the year and a great way to begin a new year.
