I have so much Joy in my Heart since starting this blog! I find great peace in sharing God's Word! I was looking for Hymns on YouTube this morning and found this sweet Little Girl who is Just running over with Joy at the age of 4 years. I could not help but be filled with Joy just watching her! She also sings Amazing Grace and more. What a joy that God gave her such amazing talent to share His word. Truly a miracle!
I have many Bibles in my home and I use them all to cross reference and make sure I am getting the right words as translated to English from the original languages in which they were written. Cross referencing keeps opening more doors for you to study and becomes a never ending teaching tool. We are so blessed to have so many "helps" to know God's truth and plan for our lives.
Historically, Jesus is recorded as a religious leader who was put to death. If you are a non-believer, you cannot deny the words recorded in history aside from the Bible. Jesus is real, He did live and die for us. I am always touched by the words of "When I Survey the Wondrous Cross". This praise song can move me to tears. ...."see from His hands, his head, his feet-Sorrow and Love flow mingled down, Love so amazing so complete, Demands my soul, my life, my all." My ALL. This certainly is true for me. I often play this song on my piano and put great feeling into it as my emotions are pulled from within me.
What are some of your favorite hymns that really speak to your heart? I will bet they are the same as mine. Do comment and tell me.
Praying for everyone on our prayer lists, especially for those who are suffering from cancer. So many of our family and friends are afflicted and God will hear their cries and take mercy upon them.
THOUGHTS AND PLEAS
by Kerrie O'Hearn Marquart©
When God shall lift me from my plight
Out of the darkness into the light
I shall rejoice and praise with all my might
And sing of Thee both day and night
Because God still answers prayers.
I have all the faith I need
Because for me the Savior bleeds
Let me make a joyful noise unto thee,
All I really ask is to serve thee,
In the best way you see fit.
By my strength or by my wit
Let me always be a witness to thee.
A "Crown of Thorns" plant with a wasp on it. My Mom gave me a small cutting from her plant many years ago and from it, my plant grew into a bush! I love it for many reasons but the red blossoms represent Christ's drops of blood from His crown of thorns. My Mom has been gone for 10 years now. I miss her very much. But she is blooming in Heaven now I know....
Please come back and visit again SOON! I love having you come! God Bless and have a wonderful, blessed weekend. If you have special prayer concerns, please comment or e-mail to me. Thank you!
