Our friend Adam came upon an old post from 2007 which included a few brief words and the lyrics (and link) to the song, “Adam, Where Are You?” Hadn’t thought of this song in awhile…it was one of my favorites by Don Francisco. Thought to share it again tonight…maybe you’ve never heard it?
Profound message at Cerulean Sanctum, hope you’ll read it… Losing Jesus
WHEN we were in Venice we purchased a few curiosities, and finding them burdensome, we thought of sending them home by one of the English vessels lying in the Canal. We went out in a gondola with our box, and having asked for the captain of one of the vessels, we put to him the […]
The Old Time Gospel “These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb” (Revelation 7:14) Every one that gets to the throne must put their foot upon the thorn. The way to the crown is by the cross. We must […]
Cal emailed me the link to this beautiful video… Thank you brother!!!
Wise words for a new year. “Do not say, ‘Why were the former days better than these?’ For you do not inquire wisely concerning this” (Ecclesiastes 7:10). Were the “nineties” really gay? Were the “twenties” really innocent? Were there any good old days? Don’t ask! It is not wise, For who knoweth what is good […]
One day, I woke early in the morning to watch the sunrise. Ah! … the beauty of God’s creation is beyond description. As I watched, I praised God for His beautiful work. As I sat there, I felt the Lord’s presence with me. He asked me, “Do you love me?” I answered, “Of course, God! […]
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give unto you; not as the world gives.” —John 14:27 “You will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You.” “Perfect peace!”—what a blessed attainment! My soul! is it yours? I am sure it is not, if you are seeking it in a perishable […]
“The ruler of this world is coming, and he has nothing in Me.” John 14:30 The temptations of Christ were not random attempts to trick Him into making a mistake, but were part of a calculated effort to destroy or disqualify Him by any means necessary. From that time on the adversary determined that a […]
This old song came to mind this evening; and though this is a re-post, (I also posted it last year during Christmas) I wanted to share it again. In the season when Christians around the world are celebrating the birth of Jesus, this simple little tune is a sober reminder that Jesus was born to […]
This little message from Nathan Pitchford blessed me today. Psalm Thirty: Weeping May Endure for a Night, But Joy Comes in the Morning Images of the Savior from the Psalms (Psalm 30) There is no psalm that better sums up the very essence of the Christian life than this song of David, written for the […]
My wife and I were traveling in Eastern Europe with another couple several years ago. When we crossed the border from Hungary to Romania, three burly, rough-looking soldiers boarded the train to check our passports and examine our luggage. Their leader indicated that he wanted to see our passports. As we handed them to him, […]
“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. For what is a man profited, if he shall […]
Praise God! “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, […]
The infirmities of the believer are as varied as they are numerous. Some are weak in faith, and are always questioning their interest in Christ. Some, superficial in knowledge, and shallow in experience, are ever exposed to the crudities of error and to the assaults of temptation. Some are slow travelers in the divine life, […]
This is my favorite song written by the late Dottie Rambo. The words are beautiful… In a corner on a table on a spread of Ivory lace. Framed and kissed by pastel colors dancing through the crystal vase Scarlet red it’s petals, opened in full bloom. Taking nothing but the sunshine leaving fragrance in the […]
“Before destruction the heart of man is haughty.” Proverbs 18:12 It is an old and common saying, that “coming events cast their shadows before them;” the wise man teaches us that a haughty heart is the prophetic prelude of evil. Pride is as safely the sign of destruction as the change of mercury in the […]
Imagine yourself threading your way along a most difficult and perilous path, every step of which is attended with pain and jeopardy, and is taken with hesitancy and doubt. Unknown to you and unseen, there is one hovering each moment around you, checking each false step, and guiding each doubtful one; soothing each sorrow, and […]
I like this! Are You Gospel-Shaped, or Just Religious? 3 ways to tell.
I loved this. LETTERS TO THE AGED by Archibald Alexander (1722-1851) Grace Gems The autumn of our life has actually arrived. The scenes of our youth have fled forever; and the feelings and hopes of that period have passed away also, or are greatly changed. When we take a retrospect of the past, several weighty […]
Reading in the Jamieson, Faussett, and Brown bible commentary tonight I came upon this, “When the fire of religion burns low, true believers should draw the nearer together, to keep the holy flame alive. Coals separated soon go out” Isn’t that a wonderfully wise admonition? I loved it.
My brethren, let me say, be like Christ at all times. Imitate him in “public.” Most of us live in some sort of public capacity—many of us are called to work before our fellow-men every day. We are watched; our words are caught; our lives are examined—taken to pieces. The eagle-eyed, argus-eyed world observes everything […]
“Behold, I come.” Psalm 40:7 What a longing had old testament saints for the Lord Jesus’ coming! And what an earnest wish and prayer it is among new testament believers, for Jesus’ coming by the visits of his grace, and the sweet influences of his Holy Spirit, from day to day. My soul, how I […]
“I Wonder as I Wander” had its origins in a song fragment collected on July 16, 1933 by folklorist and singer John Jacob Niles. While in the town of Murphy in Appalachian North Carolina, Niles attended a fundraising meeting held by evangelicals who had been ordered out-of-town by the police. In his unpublished autobiography, he […]
While sorting through old posts I came upon one from September 07 which had me not only rejoicing at God’s mysterious ways, but laughing out-loud once more. I want to repost it for anyone who may have never read the account and, that has a pretty good imagination. Every-time I read this I can almost […]
Some of the evidence of God’s work in the soul, are: a lively interest in the things which concern our eternal welfare, a trembling at God’s Word and being suitably affected thereby, hatred of sin, loathing of self, and a childlike love for the Lord. Ah, we never prize Divine grace so much—as when we […]
