    Do we in our daily living forget sometimes that God still provides. God wants us to depend on Him completely. God still answers prayer. Like others we face obstacles in our journey of faith. And yet, in George Muller's words, "May The Lord grant that these afflictions may not be lost upon us, but draw us closer to the God of comfort."

    Reading that again..."May Lord grant that these afflictions may not be lost upon us." No, I believe they are not wasted, we read here in 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God."

    What about Affliction -- "For He does not afflict willingly..." Lamentations 3:33

    He allows the affliction, Psalm 119:49-50 "Remember the word to Your servant, upon which You have caused me to hope. This is my comfort in my affliction, for Your word has given me life."

    Psalm 119:71 "It is good for me that I have been afflicted, that I may learn Your statutes."

    Nobody likes affliction, short term or life long, some say the learn to live with it. Long term or lifetime it seems they don't know anything else and sometimes ask "Why me" or "That's life" -- Let 1 Corinthians 1:3-4 be your traveling companions, affliction or not they'll be great to have handy. Bless you my dear friend, do travel in the comfort of Jesus.

    Praise the Lord!

    Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me ALL the days of my life;
    And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

    Psalm 23:6

    The LORD shall preserve your going out and your coming in
    From this time forth, and even forevermore.

    You crown the year with Your goodness.
    Psalm 65:11





    New Year 2016


    New Year’s Hymn

    Join your voices, rejoicing voices, new Year hymns again to sing;
    For our new and many mercies, Lord, our heartfelt praise we bring.
    Summer flowers have bloomed and faded, summer hours have come and fled;
    By Thy care we still are aided, by Thy hand we still are fed.

    Thou hast kept us, God of glory, since the last New Year began;
    Still proclaiming the sweet story, of Thy wondrous love to man.
    Shall we longer keep Him waiting, who for us hath waited long?
    He to whom both soul and body, heart and life, and all belong?

    From this moment, Holy Jesus, may our hearts be wholly Thine!
    Then we’ll sing that best of praises, “I am His, and He is mine.”
    Jesus! by Thy blood and Spirit, may we all Thy children be,
    Then in Thee we shall inherit happiness eternally.

    Lord of glory! we adore Thee now before Thee in another year;
    May Thy heav’nly love abiding, be on every believer here.


    The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
    The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.

    Numbers 6:24-26


    Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

    Blessings, peace, grace and to all here at TOL!

    Praise the Lord!

    But You are the same, and Your years will have no end.
    Psalm 102:27





    God of the Changing Year

    God of the changing year, whose arm of power
    In safety leads through danger’s darkest hour,
    Here in Thy temple bow Thy children down,
    To bless Thy mercy and Thy might to own.

    Thine are the beams that cheer us on our way,
    And pour around the gladdening light of day;
    Thine is the night, and the fair orbs that shine
    To cheer its hours of darkness; all are Thine.

    If round our path the thorns of sorrow grew,
    And mortal friends were faithless, Thou wast true;
    Did sickness shake the frame, or anguish tear
    The wounded spirit, Thou was present there.

    O lend Thine ear, and lift our voice to Thee;
    Where’er we dwell, still let Thy mercy be;
    From year to year still nearer to Thy shrine
    Draw our frail hearts, and make them wholly Thine.



    Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

    Blessings, peace, grace and to all here at TOL!

    Jesus said, "if you do not eat my body and drink my blood you have no part in me." And the beloved disciple said "many turned away from Him because this saying was too hard for them."

    WE take of this Bread and bless Him and give Him to others.

    Thank you, Psalmist, for the encouragement!

    Well done.

    Lord we ask that You will...

    Feed us at the Table of Grace the Bread of Mercy, as You had feed the Israelites of manna from heaven.

    Something like that.

    Fed Upon the Finest of the Wheat

    Hungry, Lord, for Thy Word of truth,
    Sitting at my Savior’s feet;
    Rising, gleaning, just like Ruth,
    Feed me on the finest of the wheat.

    Work for the Master I will do,
    Trusting in His strength so great;
    Living in His pastures new,
    Feed me on the finest of the wheat.

    Then to the harvest let us go,
    Bugles sounding no retreat;
    Workers for Jesus, He wants you
    Fed upon the finest of the wheat.

    Bread of life it is now to me,
    Honey, milk and meat;
    In Thy love I will ever be
    Fed upon the finest of the wheat.






    Jesus said…“I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger.”
    John 6:35

    Break Thou The Bread of Life

    Break Thou the bread of life, dear Lord, to me,
    As Thou didst break the loaves beside the sea;
    Beyond the sacred page I seek Thee, Lord;
    My spirit pants for Thee, O living Word!
    Bless Thou the truth, dear Lord, to me, to me,
    As Thou didst bless the bread by Galilee;
    Then shall all bondage cease, all fetters fall;
    And I shall find my peace, my all in all.



    Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

    Something Different
    Philippians 1:3, 6 "I thank my God upon every remembrance of you...being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ..." -- There are a lot of people that I'm thankful for in my life, some were by a chance meeting, some were at meetings or church, some were purposed by the Lord that we should meet and form a friendship together as we serve the Lord daily.

    I believe that the friendship we have here at TOL consists of praying for each other, encouraging each other and offering help as we are able, waiting on the Lord together, as we share or experience the trials and triumphs on our Christian pilgrimage. Not only to encouraged but also blessed by the friends of TOL as we travel together, be careful not to forget them, for I believe they remember you before the Lord in prayer and in memory of the friendship you have.

    Let us travel today with Philippians 1:3, 6, and it will a blessing for you as you pray for each other. "Heavenly Father, bless my dear friend with the riches of Your grace, mercy, lovingkindness, and the joy of the Lord, in Jesus name, Amen."

    Beside the Still Waters

    Beside the still waters of peace my shepherd leads;
    Peace is my spirit possessing, my soul He feeds.
    Pastures so green are around me, waters of life shall flow;
    Fairest of flowers surround me, ever I onward go.

    Beside the still waters, oh Father, my God,
    There lead me, there feed me, there show me Thy Word;
    There give me Thy counsel, there grant me Thy peace,
    There make all my sorrows and wanderings cease.

    Beside the still waters, enlighten my eye,
    That I may walk worthily when Thou art nigh;
    Cleanse me from presumption, my heart render pure,
    Keep me from transgression and make my faith sure.

    Beside the still waters, oh bountiful store,
    I drink from their plenty and thirst nevermore;
    No more I am weary when there I may rest,
    And feel with Thy mercy and love I am blessed.

    Beside the still waters, Thy goodness is there,
    Protects me from danger, preserves me from care;
    For pain has no terror and death has no sting,
    While Thou art so near me, my Lord and my King.


    Beside the still waters of peace. Amen!

    Praise the Lord!

    Indeed these are the mere edges of His ways,
    And how small a whisper we hear of Him!
    But the thunder of His power who can understand?

    Job 26:14





    O Thou, In All Thy Might

    O Thou, in all Thy might so far,
    In all Thy love so near,
    Beyond the range of sun and star,
    And yet beside us here.

    What heart can comprehend Thy name,
    Or, searching, find Thee out,
    Who art within, a quickening Flame,
    A Presence round about.

    Yet though I know Thee but in part,
    I ask not, Lord, for more;
    Enough for me to know Thou art,
    To love Thee and adore.

    And dearer than all things I know
    Is childlike faith to me,
    That makes the darkest way I go
    An open path to Thee.




    Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

    Praise the Lord!
    That Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Ephesians 3:17-19




    Sunday Morning Praise


    The Love of Christ

    How broad is Christ's love?
    Oh, as broad as man's trespass,
    As wide as the need of the world can be;
    And yet to the need of one soul it can narrow
    He came to the world and He came to me.

    How long is Christ's love?
    Without end or beginning,
    Eternal as God and His life it must be,
    For, to everlasting as from everlasting
    He loveth the world and He loveth me.

    How deep is Christ's love?
    Oh, as deep as man's sinning.
    As low as the uttermost vileness can be;
    In the fathomless gulf of the Father's forsaking
    He died for the world and He died for me.

    How high is Christ's love?
    It is high as the heavens,
    As high as the throne of His glory must be;
    And yet from that height He hath stooped to redeem us
    He so loved the world and He so loved me.

    How great is Christ's love?
    Oh, it passeth all knowledge,
    No man's comprehension its measure can be;
    It filleth the world, yet each heart may contain it
    He so loves the world and He so loves me.




    Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

    After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven.
    And the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying,
    "Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this."

    Revelation 4:1

    Then I, John, saw the holy city,
    New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God,
    prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

    John Saw

    John saw, jasper walls, oh my, oh my, what a vision.
    John told us, it's like the streets of gold,
    Where all God's saints shall forever stroll.
    I wonder time and again, how could it have been
    To gaze upon that heavenly throne.
    But, I'll wonder no more, when I step on that shore,
    To walk upon that golden ground that John saw.


    John saw a man, I know I'll share
    He saw a river, flowin' there
    John tell me more, John tell me more, John tell it all,
    John saw a throne so bright and fair,
    He saw the gate with beauty rare.
    Someday, I want to walk the golden ground that John saw.

    John heard a voice, from heaven saying
    I'll brush the tears, all tears away.
    John tell me more, John tell it all, John tell it all.
    He said no death shall enter there,
    No grief or pain for us to bear;
    Oh, How, I long to walk the golden ground that John saw.

    Just now a glimpse, of paradise,
    John saw a tree, a tree of life.
    John tell me more, John tell me more, John tell it all.
    The sun and moon no longer shine
    The Lamb of God now is the light;
    Forever shining on the golden ground that John saw.

    John saw, jasper walls, oh my, oh my, what a vision.
    John told us, it's like the streets of gold,
    Where all God's saints shall forever stroll.
