He Is Near





HE IS NEAR

He is near;
always near;
Justifier of my soul.

His presence;
ever near.
His great love has made me whole.

While this world;
In it's grief.
tries our faith, our belief.

When He speaks;
It is sweet;
because I know He loves me.

Many tears;
Through these years;
But so much more joy to tell.

Cause my Lord;
fills my heart
 with his love His Spirit dwells.

He is near;
always near;
Saviour of my soul.



Chorus: He Is Near

This morning the Lord gave me a new Chorus.  He Is Near.  When we are children of God, On the day we were saved He came to dwell in our hearts.  We were born again, made alive in Christ.  With Him we can find joy in times of sorrow  if we continue in faith, continue in the praising of Him.  His peace gives relief and rest for our souls.

Just A Little Note: " How Great Thou Art"






Just A Little Note
" How Great Thou Art"

I was reminded recently of a story I was told as a child about my grandfather.  My grandfather became a Christian in His older age.  My grandmother rarely ever left her home unless it was to go to church so when my grandfather came home to a seemingly empty house, he became flustered and started calling for her.  "Mildred, where are you? Mildred! He called over and over again.  He became very concerned and began searching all around the house inside and out.  Come to find while she was walking around the house to find him.  He was on the other side looking for her.
When He finally found her he hugged her and wouldn't let her go.  He told her He thought the rapture had happened and He was left behind, it nearly scared him to death.  Soon after, my uncle led my grandfather to the Lord and he became a faithful Christian. There was a noticeable difference in his life .      
One sad day our family was informed that our grandfather had cancer.

I recently wrote a poem called every little detail.  In the poem I use the words from the hymn "How Great Thou Art".  The hymn is one that has impacted my life because of my grandfather.  I read the poem at our church along with the words of the entire Hymn, "How Great Thou Art."
I told the story of my grandfather who died of cancer years ago.  I told the story as I remembered it told to me.
My grandfathers favorite hymn was "How Great Thou Art" and it was the last song sung to him before he died.  My mother later told me she sat by his bedside and sang to him his favorite hymn.  It was the only thing that seemed to help him rest peacefully.

A year a ago or so  I was walking at the park.   It seemed I was the only one there so I freely sang out loud, but not too loudly.  I was singing the song "How Great Thou Art".   Every time I sing the song I think about my grandfather.

 A very unusual thing happened while I was singing.  I've been kind of afraid to talk about it because I didn't think anyone would believe me.  I was singing the words to the song and when I got to the part about the rolling thunder on cue there was a thundering sound from the sky.  It seemed as though God reacted to my singing to Him.

I even questioned maybe someone was trying to trick me, but preferred to believe God was blessing me. I even started thinking theorizing  how someone could make it happen. Then one day while I was walking, I could hear the sound system from the high school football game, it came from the same direction as the thundering sound I heard.  I don't mean to ruin a great story about God speaking to me in a thundering voice as I sang "How Great Thou Art".  but it's better than me questioning my sanity.

It could be that my faith is just too small and I should just accept that God heard me singing to him and he was so moved, He wanted to let me know it.  So I'm going to go ahead and accept it, because either way God's still in control and still hears me when I sing or speak to him.

Just a Little Note: Faith And Love




Just a Little Note:

Faith and Love

Not too long ago I met a young lady while I was out walking.  She was probably around 25 years old.  She's attending college in Washington State. She was visiting her parents who live just a few houses up from us.   She was out walking her mom's golden retriever.  She wanted to talk about politics, when I noticed she repeated something several times. Our conversation weaved in and out into the topic of politics, religion and Christianity.  She kept on repeating "killing for Christ".  I responded with "Killing for Christ?"  What?  I believe in fighting for freedom and protecting our Country as a nation.  But killing for Christ? No.

We went on in our conversation, She said that she was a Christian but that she was confused.  She had been studying many other religious beliefs and had started doubting Gods Word.  I explained to her that if she was a Christian and was doubting God's Word she was already falling from the Faith.  I lovingly told her that anything that contradicts God's Word should not be trusted.  

God has made His Word simple enough for a child to understand.  That's why Christ said let the little children come unto me.  God can open the eyes of a child that does not have allot of this worlds knowledge.  God wants us to come to Him as little children.  Trusting Him with a childlike faith.  Sometimes people can become so educated that they become deceived by this world's knowledge  and become blinded to 
the things of God.

I've been busy trying to get my craft room organized.  I happened to see my scrapbook from years past.  I picked it up and looked at it noticed some things missing.  I noticed an article I put in it as a young teen.  The headline said... "Killing For Christ".  I didn't read it but I immediately thought of that young woman repeating those words to me, as though awaiting my response. I can't remember why I put the article into my scrapbook, nor do I know what it says at this time.  I haven't taken the time to read it.

The other thing that stood out about our conversation was when I mentioned that God hates sin.  She responded with, God doesn't hate because God is love.  God doesn't hate anything. 

Normally when I talk about scripture. The scripture just pops up into my mind as needed.. I know the Lord hates sin, God has brought judgment upon nations and people because of sin.  I did not argue the point because for some reason even though I know the Scriptures needed, my mind drew a blank.  

When I was at home I remembered the verses.

Proverbs 6:16 -19
16 These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: 
17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, 
 18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

God is Love, but He still hates sin, which we are all guilty of in one way or another.
God doesn't not want us living in sin. He wants us to repent.  He wants us to turn to Him and trust Him.  He wants us to do these things because he loves us.
The Bible teaches us that God is love, but it also teaches that He hates sin and will judge sin.
Romans 6:1 -2
What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?

Just remember without faith we cannot please God. 
Unbelief is one sure way never to be saved, never to see heaven, 
 never to know real hope or joy.

I Love You So Much, My Valentine


Listen To The Song Here:

Good Morning Everybody. This Morning The Lord Gave Me This Love Song. The Song Is About God's Love For His Church, The Bride Of Christ. The Bible Teaches Husbands To Love Their Wives As Christ Loved The Church And Gave His Life For It. 

I Love You So Much, My Valentine


I Love You So Much, My Valentine;
Can't You See That You Are For Me.
Everything I Came To Do, I Thought Of You;
Even On The Cross Of Calvary.

I Knew I Had To Come To Save You;
I Knew You Could Not Save Yourself.
So I Laid Down My Life In Sacrifice;
So You Know, I Gave To You Myself.

I Love You So Much, My Valentine;
Can't You See That You Are For Me.
I Love You More Than You'll Ever Know;
Please Put Your Love And Trust In Me.

I Knew I Had To Come To Save You;
I Knew You Could Not Save Yourself.
So I Laid Down My Life In Sacrifice;
So You Know, I Gave To You Myself.

Song

 Ephesians 5:25
 Husbands, love your wives,
 even as Christ also loved the 
church, and gave himself for it;


 Revelations 21:2
 And I John saw the holy city,
 new Jerusalem, coming down
from God out of heaven, prepared
 as a bride adorned
 for her husband.

With Love You Called




With Love You Called


Oh Lamb of God, I Came To Thee;
Because You First Had Love For Me.
With Love You Called, I Heard Your Truth;
Just As I Am, You Rescued Me.

I Was Perishing In My Sin;
I Had No Place to Turn, No Friend.
With Love You Called, I Heard Your Voice;
You Have Paid The Debt Of My Sin.

Lord It's True, I Once Doubted You;
And  Wandered Into  A Dark Night.
Then Dread Fell Upon Me And Fear;
I Found No Comfort, Nor Joy In Sight.

I Remembered Your Forgiveness:
Just At The Calling Of Your Name.
Then I Cried "Lord Jesus, Save Me".
Just As I Am, You Rescued Me.

I Remember Now To Thank-You;
For Your Great Work At Calvary.
Your  Blood Shed, The Price You Paid;
Oh God, What Love You Have For Me.

(Song)

Matthew 14:30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.
