FYI: Posts will be sparse around here until I replace my laptop.... Coming back to work after Christmas break apparently was too hard and it quit on me!

Waiting Upon Him

Isaiah 64:4
Since ancient times no one has heard,
no ear has perceived,
no eye has seen any God besides you,
who acts on behalf of those who wait for him.

Psalm 37:7a
Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him;

Psalm 46:10a
Be still and know that I am God
I will be exalted among the nations
I will be exalted in the earth.

His Presence

I met God in the morning, 
when my day was at its best
and His Presence came as sunrise
like a glory in my breast,

All day long His Presence lingered,
all day long He stayed with me
and we sailed in perfect calmness
o'er a very troubled sea,

Other ships were blown and battered,
other ships were sore distressed,
but the winds that seemed to drive them
brought to us a peace and rest,

Then I thought of other mornings
with a keen remorse of mind,
when I too had loosed the moorings
and His Presence left behind

So, I think I know the secret,
learned from many a troubled way
you must seek God in the morning
if you want Him through the day.

The Light of Christ - a thankful thursday


Turn your eyes upon Jesus
Look full in His wonderful face
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace

467: a bright moon reflecting the sun to all the earth
469: movie night as a family
470: a safe drive home through the snow

472: lost things found
474: an old--but ever true--hymn of faith 
475: long road trips and the rushing back of memories

I am resolved...

When I came to you, brothers, I did not come with eloquence or superior wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God. For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified." - 1 Corinthians 2:1-2

 "I resolved to know nothing..except Jesus Christ and Him crucified!"

I am resolved no longer to linger,
Charmed by the world's delight,
Things that are higher, things that are nobler,
These have allured my sight.

I will hasten to Him, hasten so glad and free,
Jesus, greatest, highest, I will come to Thee
I will hasten to Him, hasten so glad and free,
Jesus, Jesus, greatest, highest, I will come to Thee

I am resolved to go to the Savior, 
Leaving my sin and strife;
He is the true One, He is the just One,
He hath the words of life.

I am resolved to follow the Savior, 
Faithful and true each day;
Heed what He sayeth, do what He willeth,
He is the living way.

I am resolved to enter the kingdom
Leaving the paths of sin;
Friends may oppose me, foes may beset me,
Still will I enter in.

I am resolved, and who will go with me?
Come, friends without delay,
Taught by the Bible, led by the Spirit,
We'll walk the heavenly way.
