What voices do you listen to? Who do you go to for counsel and advice? What books do you read the most? Who is your favorite politician or government official? Your most desired preacher? Your most beloved sports figure? Your preferred news show? Who do you believe the most? The least?
“Blessed are you when men hate you, when they exclude you and insult you and reject your name as evil, because of the Son of Man. Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, because great is your reward in heaven. For that is how their fathers treated the prophets.”

This is a message to “Wake up” from our spiritual slumber, to rise from the dead, to strengthen what remains and is about to die, to remember what we have received and heard from God, to obey it, and to repent of our sins, and Christ will shine on us. The Lord gave me this very solemn...
Sunday, July 26, 2015, 8:30 a.m. – The Lord Jesus put in mind the song “In Faithfulness He Leads Me.” Speak, Lord, your words to my heart. I read 1 Peter 2:4-8 (NASB).

Written on 2/19/2012: We have been battling sickness in our house for over a week now. It appears we keep recycling the same germs to one another. And, then I walked into our bedroom yesterday and turned on a light when my husband was sleeping. I didn’t think about...
So I am hoping to find guidance to what has been on my mind for quite some time. The question I have been pondering is if The Lord lets us know things before they are going to happen? And if so, which bible verses or stories should I look up to reference this?
The signposts of life are varied and many
for right advice we really need to ask
up there in His heavenly throne
where God reigns under no mask
God calls us to draw near
so we can hear His gentle voice
He will guide us on our path
sure we're away from world's noise
When we're on this pathway...
Jesus issues out His holy call
to those whose life labours are sore
they are heavily laid down near beat
unable humanly speaking to take anymore
But the good Lord offers His rest
a gracious peaceful divine antidote
to lift them up from life's battles
wrap them round with His graceful coat...
Heaven sends forth it's angel
coming with a sharp sickle
another angel came from the temple
for the earth were in a right pickle!
This angel had authority over the fire
he spoke then with a voice so loud
to the one with the sharp sickle

Having put in his...
Darkness has damaging effect upon us
when we think there's nowhere else to look
it has downward force holding us down
this is reality nothing found in a book
But light is there for you to see
open these eyes with real penetration
sustaining effectiveness of such light
makes you really feel a...
My trust is in God alone
as I dwell in His shelter on high
for He rescues me from every snare
covers me so I can safely lie
Having no fear of the nightly terror
nor the flying arrows through the day
no darkly pestilence or wasting destruction
my God always rules as I pray
Thousands fall on my...
In this passage of holy scripture
we see God pouring out His wrath
on those disobedient to His will
refusing to walk in His path
Lot's wife was one who did this
told by angels as part of family of Lot
she knew as much as the rest
but as she lingered back she was caught
In a moment judgement...
There is a day fixed in heaven
when the Lord comes in glory
to bring this world to it's end
this will be real not just a story
This will be a day of real excitement
for those that to God truly belong
seeing their king in all His splendour
united together in their heavenly song
