          It is my goal that the viewer of these photos of mine will sense the true meaning of the verse in the Bible that says,
          "Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD."
          Psalm 150:6

    Trust in Him forever!

    Better a holy discord than a profane concord..
    Thomas Adams





    The works of the LORD are great.He will ever be mindful of His
    covenant.

    Psalm 111:2, 5

    How we need to be mindful of those who are bound in heathen strongholds!

    In many countries the process of changing from an empty religion to
    Christianity is a drastic move.

    Someone described it this way: "Changing religions means breaking the family tradition, family ties, and family honour. A Christian is no longer a member of the family and suffers mental and physical cruelty from his own kinsmen."

    Only the Lord's power can bring one from such a background and make them a faithful follower of Christ.

    Have we prayed for the steadfastness of persecuted Christians today?
    --E. Dyck

    Trust in Him, ye saints forever;
    He is faithful changing never;
    Neither force nor guile can sever
    those He loves from Him.
    Thomas Kelly

    Lily of the Valley



     

     

     


     




     

    Lily of the Valley
    (Click to hear music)

    I am a rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys.
    Song of Solomon 2:1



    Words: Charles W. Fry, 1881; first appeared in the Salvation Army's The War Cry, December 29, 1881.
    Fry wrote the lyrics in Lincoln, England, while working with the Salvation Army there.

    Music: William S. Hays; adapted by Charles W. Fry



     

    I have found a friend in Jesus, He's everything to me,
    He's the fairest of ten thousand to my soul;
    The Lily of the Valley, in Him alone I see
    All I need to cleanse and make me fully whole.
    In sorrow He's my comfort, in trouble He's my stay;
    He tells me every care on Him to roll.


    Refrain
    He's the Lily of the Valley,
    the Bright and Morning Star,
    He's  the fairest of ten thousand to my soul.



    He all my grief has taken, and all my sorrows borne;
    In temptation He's my strong and mighty tower;
    I have all for Him forsaken, and all my idols torn
    From my heart and now He keeps me by His power.
    Though all the world forsake me, and Satan tempt me sore,
    Through Jesus I shall safely reach the goal.


    Refrain


    He will never, never leave me, nor yet forsake me here,
    While I live by faith and do His blessed will;
    A wall of fire about me, I've nothing now to fear,
    From His manna He my hungry soul shall fill.
    Then sweeping up to glory to see His blessed face,
    Where the rivers of delight shall ever roll.


    Refrain

    Let us beware lest the things
    we own come to own us.

    But speaking the truth in love.
    Ephesians 4:15

    Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt.
    Col. 4:6

    John informs us that the Lord Jesus was full of grace and truth (Jn. 1:14).  His speech never lacked either quality, but in fact was full of both.

    But what if our words lack these? Warren Wiersbe writes, "Love without truth is hypocrisy, truth without love is brutality."

    Another has said, "If you have love, you are not only going to think no evil, you're going to take your tongue and have it nailed to the cross so that you bless instead of curse."

    Let both grace and truth govern our speech.
    --Warren Henderson







     

    May the Mind of Christ, My Saviour
    (Click to hear music)

    Let this mind be in you,
    which was also in Christ Jesus.
    Philippians 2:5

     
     
    Author:  Kate B. Wilkinson, 20th Century
    Musician:  Arthur C. Barham-Gould, 1891-1953





    May the mind of Christ, my Saviour,
    Live in me from day to day,
    By His love and pow'r controlling
    All I do and say.


    May the Word of God dwell richly
    In my heart from hour to hour,
    So that all may see I triumph
    Only through His pow'r.


    May the peace of God, my Father,
    Rule my life in ev'rything,
    That I may be calm to comfort
    Sick and sorrowing.


    May the love of Jesus fill me,
    As the waters fill the sea;
    Him exalting, self abasing,
    This is victory.


    May I run the race before me,
    Strong and brave to face the foe,
    Looking only unto Jesus
    As I onward go.


    May His beauty rest upon me
    As I seek the lost to win,
    And may they forget the channel,
    Seeing only Him.

    The Church: Commotion, Not Devotion



     


     

    Though the promise tarry,
    it can never come too late.
    .
    C. H. Spurgeon

     

     




     

    The Church:
    Commotion, Not Devotion


    ..and after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire, and after the fire a still small voice.  
    --1 Kings 19:12

    "The accent in the Church today," says Leonard Ravenhill, the English evangelist, "is not on devotion, but on commotion." Religious extroversion has been carried to such an extreme in evangelical circles that hardly anyone has the desire, to say nothing of the courage, to question the soundness of it. Externalism has taken over.  God now speaks by the wind and the earthquake only; the still small voice can be heard no more. The whole religious machine has become a noisemaker. The adolescent taste which loves the loud horn and the thundering exhaust has gotten into the activities of modern Christians. The old question, "What is the chief end of man?" is now answered, "To dash about the world and add to the din thereof."...

    We must begin the needed reform by challenging the spiritual validity of externalism. What a man is must be shown to be more important than what he does. While the moral quality of any act is imparted by the condition of the heart, there may be a world of religious activity which arises not from within but from without and which would seem to have little or no moral content. Such religious conduct is imitative or reflex. It stems from the current cult of commotion and possesses no sound inner life. 
    Dr. Tozer in The Root of the Righteous, 84,85.



    "Lord, if this was true in Ravenhill's and Tozer's day, how much more true today! Quiet my heart today, in the midst of the rush and din of church busyness, that I might be able to hear the 'still small voice.' How desperately we need to hear it, but how seldom we're able to listen. Amen."

    There's a Quiet Understanding
    (Click to hear music)

    by Tedd Smith

    © 1973 Hope Publishing Company




    There's a quiet understanding
    When we're gathered in the spirit
    It's a promise that He gives us
    When we gather in His name
    There's a love we feel in Jesus
    There's a manna that He feeds us
    It's a promise that He gives us
    When we gather in His name


    And we know when we're together
    Sharing love and understanding
    That our brothers and our sisters
    Feel the oneness that He brings
    Thank You, thank You, thank You, Jesus
    For the way You love and feed us
    For the many ways You lead us
    Thank You, thank You, Lord.

    WHAT A FRIEND
    (Click to hear music)
    Tune: The Rose

    Traditional Tune: Charles C. Converse, 1832-1918

     


    What a Friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear!
    What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer!
    O what peace we often forfeit, O what needless pain we bear,
    All because we do not carry everything to God in prayer.



    Have we trials and temptations? Is there trouble anywhere?
    We should never be discouraged; take it to the Lord in prayer.
    Can we find a friend so faithful who will all our sorrows share?
    Jesus knows our every weakness; take it to the Lord in prayer.



    Are we weak and heavy laden, cumbered with a load of care?
    Precious Savior, still our refuge, take it to the Lord in prayer.
    Do your friends despise, forsake you? Take it to the Lord in prayer!
    In His arms He?ll take and shield you; you will find a solace there.



    Blessed Savior, Thou hast promised Thou wilt all our burdens bear
    May we ever, Lord, be bringing all to Thee in earnest prayer.
    Soon in glory bright unclouded there will be no need for prayer
    Rapture, praise and endless worship will be our sweet portion there.

    Lessons in the Valley



    After the Sunset in Snowdonia, Wales



     

    He who alone gives life to us gave up His life for us. .
    Ralph Erskine



     




    I will give thee the treasures of darkness.
    Isaiah 45:3

    When we think of darkness we naturally think of all that is fearful and
    painful. Sometimes the Lord in His wisdom and grace allows us to go through these "night" experiences.

    When we lost our youngest son at the age of 30, the Lord gave us opportunities to witness as never before. People with hardened hearts were suddenly softened, skeptics listened, believers were
    encouraged and challenged.

    Amidst the darkness, sadness and pain, we discovered untold treasures, including the greatest treasure of all--the Lord's love and warmth.
    --Brian Russell




    Lessons in the Valley
    Author Unknown

    " I have been through the valley of weeping,
    The valley of sorrow and pain,
    But the God of all comfort was with me,
    At hand to uphold and sustain.

    As earth needs the clouds and the sunshine,
    Our souls need both sorrow and joy;
    So He places us oft in the furnace
    The dross from gold to destroy.

    When He leads through some valley of trouble,
    His omnipotent hand we may trace,
    For the trials and sorrows He sends us
    Are part of His lessons in grace.

    Oft we shrink from the purging and pruning,
    Forgetting the husbandman knows
    That the deeper the cutting and paring
    The richer the cluster that grows.

    Well He knows that affliction is needed;
    He has a wise purpose in view;
    But in the dark valley He whispers,
    "Later on thou wilt know what I do."

    As we travel through life's shadowed valley
    Fresh springs of His love ever rise;
    And we learn that our sorrows and losses
    Are blessings He sends in disguise.

    So we follow wherever He leadeth;
    Let the pathway be dreary or bright;
    For we prove that our God can give comfort,
    Our God can give songs in the night."

    Open my eyes








    Gratitude to God makes even a
    temporal blessing a taste of Heaven. ... .
    .
    William Romaine
     
     



    And Jesus answered and said unto him, What  thee?
    Mark 10:51

    What a question the Lord asked this blind man.

    Bartimaeus is an example of true, blind faith. Though in darkness, he saw the Lord as the Son of David.n

    That was more than the Pharisees saw in Him. Then in marvelous faith he responded, "Open my eyes."

    How about you? He's asking, "What do you want Me to do for you?"

    Lift up your eyes and through His power, reach for lofty goals today.
    --Rex Trogdon


    Silently now, I wait for Thee
    Ready my God, Thy will to see;
    Open my eyes illumine me, Spirit divine.
    Clara H. Scott









    Open My Eyes That I May See
    (Click to hear music)

    Clara H. Scott, 1895


    Open my eyes, that I may see
    Glimpses of truth Thou hast for me;
    Place in my hands the wonderful key
    That shall unclasp and set me free.
    Silently now I wait for Thee,
    Ready, my God, Thy will to see;
    Open my eyes,
    illumine me, Spirit Divine!


    Open my ears that I may hear
    Voices of truth Thou sendest clear;
    and while the wavenotes fall on my ear,
    Everything false will disappear.
    Silently now I wait for Thee,
    Ready, my God, Thy will to see;
    Open my ears, illumine me, Spirit Divine!


    Open my mouth, and let me bear
    Gladly the warm truth everywhere;
    Open my heart, and let me prepare
    Love with Thy children thus to share.
    Silently now I wait for Thee,
    Ready, my God, Thy will to see;
    Open my heart, illumine me, Spirit Divine!
