My Song of Praise

Hymns have always been apart of my life. Growing up in a traditional church, these priceless gems were sung every Sunday.  In fact, there were some tunes that could have been on autoplay for the following Sunday. We knew that “Blessed Assurance” was on page 315, and “Learning to Lean” on page 643. My siblings and I would make up our own words to these religious songs. Here are some other familiar chants where the words may have been changed or misheard.

Ok, now before I get called on the carpet on this, you know what I’m talking about. If you are a preacher’s kid, and was raised in a church with…

Wisdom Wednesday – Great is Thy Faithfulness

Beholding Him Ministries

Lamentations 3.22-23Blessings today! It is Wisdom Wednesday and I am praising God for His faithfulness!

Just a couple of days ago, I was led to use the following video in a posted titled, “Shout for Joy.”

You cannot sing “Great is Thy Faithfulness” with giving thought to Lamentations 3:22-23, “Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,for His compassions never fail.They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.” I’m still singing it…ssssooo, I pray the following Scriptures and quotes about our God’s Great faithfulness will bring encouragement, peace, joy…that we will experience His amazing love and grace today! Blessings to you this day!

Psalm 105:1-6, 23-26, 45c – Sing God’s wonderful works

Praying the Lectionary

Psalm 105:1-6, 23-26, 45c

1   O give thanks to the LORD, call on his name,
make known his deeds among the peoples.
2   Sing to him, sing praises to him;
tell of all his wonderful works.
3   Glory in his holy name;
let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice.
4   Seek the LORD and his strength;
seek his presence continually.
5   Remember the wonderful works he has done,
his miracles, and the judgments he has uttered,
6   O offspring of his servant Abraham,
children of Jacob, his chosen ones.

23  Then Israel came to Egypt;
Jacob lived as an alien in the land of Ham.
24  And the LORD made his people very fruitful,
and made them stronger than their foes,
25  whose hearts he then turned to hate his people,
to deal craftily with his servants.

26  He sent his servant Moses,
and Aaron whom he…

Hymn, Worship Song – Find the Meaning of Life – “For Whom Man Should Live” (Official Music Video)

I

Wasn’t clear for whom man should live. Now I’ve got the answer for it.

I used to live just for myself, seeking only status and fame.

Prayer to God full of fine words, yet holding to my own way in real life.

Faith based upon future and fate, I have no truth or reality.

Rituals and rules, confining my faith; I was left with nothing but emptiness.

Failing to live as a human, I don’t deserve God’s love for me.

Yes and Amen in Christ

A disciple's study

Kevin DeYoung:

God has promised us everything in Christ.

Abraham knew the Lord as a promise-maker, Moses knew him as a promise-keeper, but we know the one in whom all the promises are yes and Amen.

In Christ, there is now no condemnation for us (Rom. 8:1)

In Christ we did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but a spirit of adoption by which we cry out, “Abba, Father!” (Rom. 8:16)

In Christ the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed (Rom. 8:18).

In Christ we know that he who did not spare his own son, but freely gave him up for us all, will also with him freely give us all things (Rom. 8:32).

In Christ there is nothing in all creation—neither life nor…
