Luke 17:11-19 ESV On the way to Jerusalem he was passing along between Samaria and Galilee. And as he entered a village, he was met by ten lepers, who stood at a distance and lifted up their voices, saying, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.” When he saw them he said to them, “Go and … Continue reading One Grateful Person
Before any of us came to faith in Jesus Christ, we were all dead in our sins, without God, and without hope of eternal life with God. We were under the control of sin and of Satan, doing what was opposed to God and to his Word. But, then we heard the message of salvation … Continue reading With All HIS Energy
“And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and … Continue reading The Knowledge of His Will
Probably, when you came to faith in Jesus Christ, you were told that you must read your Bible and pray, for that is how you grow in your faith and in your walk with the Lord. But, what does that mean exactly? How is that done? And, are there wrong and right ways to read … Continue reading Not Enough Time?
I am reblogging this, because I think this may be where a lot of us are. Three weeks ago Rick and I got sick. It took us 2 weeks to get better. And, then yesterday we started to get sick again, and we are just dragging today (and yesterday). So, last night, I knew the Lord had something for me to write, but I had nothing to give, and I mean nothing! So, I just surrendered to the Lord and became a willing instrument to let him work through me, and he did. And, life is like that sometimes. Things don’t always go the way we planned or the way we hoped, but we need to remain steadfast in our faith despite how we feel or despite our circumstances, so this is what this writing is all about.
So, four days ago the Lord Jesus led me to begin to write a new song. Now, that is not a simple task, even for a song that is home recorded, or especially for a song that is amateurishly home recorded, whatever the case may be. For, this one took four days to write from beginning to end.
I am being led of the Lord here to share that process with you, because it is related to the message of this song and to life, in reality. So, here goes:
First the Lord leads me to write a new song. Then, I sit at the keyboard (piano) and plunk out a tune as I hear it in my head, which sometimes needs to be refined once I have it all written down. Then, I handwrite the notes down on a music score sheet. And, it isn’t just that…

Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life—is not from the Father but is from the world. … Continue reading Who is Antichrist?
Psalm 2:1-3 ESV Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against his Anointed, saying, “Let us burst their bonds apart and cast away their cords from us.” So many Christians today, perhaps particularly here … Continue reading For or Against?
