  • Praise the Lord!

    For we are sojourners and pilgrims before You, as were all our fathers.
    1 Chronicles 29:15
    The days of our lives are seventy years; and if by reason of strength they are eighty years, yet their boast is only labor and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away. So teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. Psalm 90:10, 12




    Time, By Moments, Steals Away

    Time, by moments, steals away, first the hour, and then the day;
    Small the daily loss appears, yet it soon amounts to years:
    Thus another year is flown, now it is no more our own
    If it brought or promised good, than the years before the flood.

    But may none of us forget it has left us much in debt;
    Favors from the Lord received, sins that have His Spirit grieved;
    Marked by an unerring hand in His book recorded stand;
    Who can tell the vast amount, placed to each of our account?

    Happy, the believing soul! Christ for you has paid the whole;
    While you own the debt is large, you may plead a full discharge:
    But poor careless sinner, say, what can you to justice pay?
    Tremble, lest when life is past, into prison you be cast!

    Will you still increase the score? Still be careless, as before?
    O, forbid it, gracious Lord, touch their spirits by Thy Word!
    Now, in mercy, to them show what a mighty debt they owe!
    All their unbelief subdue, let them find forgiveness too.

    Spared to see another year, let Thy blessing meet us here;
    Come, Thy dying work revive, bid Thy drooping garden thrive:
    Sun of righteousness arise, warm our hearts, and bless our eyes;
    Let our prayer Thy heart move, make the next year a time of love!




    Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

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

    • Evening Praise the Lord.




      Praise the Lord!

      You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought afar off.
      Psalm 139:2
      For there is not a word on my tongue, but behold, O LORD, You know it altogether.
      Psalm 139:4
      You know all things.
      John 16:30
      Peter…said to Him, “Lord, You know all things.”
      John 21:17





      Thou Knowest, Lord

      Thou knowest, Lord, the weariness and sorrow
      Of the sad heart that comes to Thee for rest;
      Cares of today, and burdens for tomorrow,
      Blessings implored, and sins to be confessed;
      I come before Thee at Thy gracious word,
      And lay them at Thy feet: Thou knowest, Lord.

      Thou knowest all the present: each temptation,
      Each toilsome duty, each foreboding fear;
      All to myself assigned of tribulation,
      Or to beloved ones than self more dear;
      All pensive memories, as I journey on,
      Longings for vanished smiles and voices gone.

      Thou knowest all the future: gleams of gladness
      By stormy clouds too quickly overcast;
      Hours of sweet fellowship, and parting sadness,
      And the dark river to be crossed at last;
      O what could confidence and hope afford
      To tread that path, but this, Thou knowest, Lord!

      Thou knowest, not alone as God, all knowing;
      As man, our mortal weakness Thou has proved:
      On earth, with purest sympathies o’erflowing,
      O Savior, Thou hast wept, and Thou hast loved;
      And love and sorrow still to Thee may come,
      And find a hiding place, a rest, a home.

      Therefore I come, Thy gentle call obeying,
      And lay my sins and sorrows at Thy feet;
      On everlasting Strength my weakness staying,
      Clothed in Thy robe of righteousness complete:
      Then rising and refreshed I leave Thy throne,
      And follow on to know as I am known.




      Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

      • Praise the Lord!

        I delight to do Your will, O my God,
        And Your law is within my heart.

        Psalm 40:8

        Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God.
        Psalm 143:10

        Father…nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.
        Luke 22:42





        His Will Be Done

        “His Will Be Done,”
        We say with sighs and trembling,
        Expecting trial, bitter loss and tears.
        And then how doth He answer us?

        With blessings,
        And sweet rebuking of our faithless fears.
        God's Will is peace and plenty
        And the power to be,
        And have the best that He can give;
        A mind to serve Him, a heart to love,
        And faith to die and the strength to live.

        It means for us all good,
        All grace, all glory;
        His Kingdom coming and on Earth begun.
        Why should we fear to say,
        “His Will, His righteous,
        His tender, loving, joyous Will be done!”




        Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

        • Praise the Lord!

          We have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
          2 Corinthians 5:1





          Not Made With Hands

          Christ went a building to prepare,
          Yes, not made with hands,
          And ’twill be decked with jewels rare,
          Not made with hands.

          Put on the armor of our God,
          Amen, not made with hands,
          And take the path our Captain trod,
          Not made with hands.

          Keep fighting sin, that awful foe,
          I know, not made with hands,
          Until you hear the trumpet blow,
          Not made with hands.

          Then come up, children, get your crown,
          Real, not made with hands,
          When you have laid your armor down,
          Not made with hands.

          That city’s built with precious stone,
          Hallelujah, Not made with hands,
          Within we’ll gather ’round the throne,
          Not made with hands.

          I know, I know,
          I have another building;
          I know, I know,
          ’Tis not made with hands.

            • 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!

                But where can wisdom be found?
                And where is the place of understanding?
                Man does not know its value, nor is it found in the land of the living.
                The deep says, “It is not in me”; and the sea says, “It is not with me”.
                It cannot be purchased for gold, nor can silver be weighed for its price.

                Job 28:12-15





                Far More Precious Than Gold

                The Bible our guide, far more precious than gold,
                The half of its glories have never been told;
                Its wonderful words for the old and the young,
                The grandest e’er spoken by poor mortal tongue.

                The Bible our counsel, reveals precious truth,
                Support for the aged, the guide of our youth;
                A comfort by night, and a guide for the day,
                And glorious things at the end of the way.

                Exceeding great promises here do we see,
                And they are most precious to you and to me;
                The promise that He will be with us always,
                Then we shall be with Him forever to stay.

                The wonderful things in the Bible contained,
                Most heart stirring tidings man ever proclaimed;
                The wonderful things of the Bible are true,
                And this is the dearest, that Jesus loves you.

                Far more precious than gold,
                More precious than gold,
                The wonderful things revealed to us
                Are far more precious than gold.

                  • Praise the Lord!

                    For He draws up drops of water, which distill as rain from the mist,
                    Which the clouds drop down and pour abundantly on man.

                    Job 36:27-28





                    What Would We Do Without The Clouds?

                    God is gracious, He sends the rain;
                    For His glory, we should not complain;
                    What He sends is always best,
                    Stormy clouds and all the rest.

                    Verdant meadows, fruits and flow’rs,
                    Gather beauty from the falling show’rs;
                    Clouds are sailboats from above,
                    Laden with the gifts of love.

                    Cloudless sky makes barren land;
                    Parched and thirsty is the desert sand;
                    So would life be barren, too,
                    If there were no clouds for you.

                    What would we do without the clouds?
                    The clouds bring rain,
                    Scattering show’rs of blessing over hill and plain,
                    Bringing to us the harvest of the golden grain;
                    What would we do without the clouds?
                    The clouds bring rain.




                    Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

                    • Evening Praise the Lord.




                      Praise the Lord!

                      With clouds He covers the light.
                      Job 36:32





                      A Light Behind the Cloud

                      Keep in heart, be ever patient,
                      There’s a light behind the cloud;
                      Be not gloomy or discouraged,
                      Let not mists your soul enshroud.

                      You remember Christ had trials
                      That were many and were sore;
                      And you may be only passing
                      O’er the ground He trod before.

                      You can rift the cloud with sunshine
                      If your heart is glad within,
                      And make brighter paths to travel
                      If you prayerfully begin.

                      All the light of life eternal,
                      That has shone the ages through,
                      Still exists, and is but waiting
                      To illuminate the true.

                      Oh, be patient, ever patient,
                      When life’s cares around you crowd;
                      Oh, be patient, ever patient:
                      There’s a light behind the cloud.

                          Your hands have made me and fashioned me, an intricate unity.
                          Job 10:8





                          Sing, My Soul, to God Who Made Thee

                          Sing, my soul, to God who made thee,
                          Raise to Heav’n thy grateful voice;
                          All His creatures, singing, bid thee
                          In His goodness now rejoice.
                          Pure and holy love unbounded
                          Fills His tender heart and kind;
                          All who truly serve Him find
                          Rest, by God’s strong arm surrounded.

                          E’en the Son He loved so dearly,
                          Died that we through Him might live,
                          Was e’er love like His, who merely
                          Lived His life in love to give?
                          Holy Spirit, teach and guide me,
                          Fill my heart with loving faith;
                          Faith can break the power of death,
                          Naught I fear with Thee beside me.

                          When I sleep His care surrounds me,
                          With new strength and youth imbues;
                          His unbounded grace confounds me,
                          Each new morn His love renews.
                          In sore trial and temptation
                          He, my Savior, still is near,
                          Bids me, “Child do thou not fear,
                          Thou shalt yet see My salvation.”

                          Sing, my soul, to God who made thee,
                          Heaven and earth may not endure,
                          Sing, my soul, to God who made thee,
                          But God’s love is ever sure.




                          Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

                            Praise the Lord!

                            But He knows the way that I take; when He has tested me, I shall come forth as gold.
                            Job 23:10





                            God Answers Prayer

                            God answers prayer, O do not doubt Him;
                            God answers prayer, believe His Word:
                            God answers prayer, now venture on Him,
                            His Word the test of time has stood.

                            God answers prayer, fear not to trust Him;
                            God answers prayer, He longs to save:
                            God answers prayer, look up believing,
                            For this His only Son He gave.

                            God answers prayer, O child so weary;
                            God answers prayer, pure you shall be:
                            God answers prayer, His blood availeth;
                            From self and sin He’ll make you free.

                            God answers prayer, I dare believe it;
                            God answers prayer, O praise His name:
                            God answers prayer, and here this moment,
                            His love sets all my heart aflame.

                            God answers prayer in times of trial;
                            God answers prayer when all seems dark;
                            God answers prayer, He’ll safely guide you,
                            He loves and “knows the way you take.”

                            God answers prayer, O soul, believe Him;
                            God answers prayer, I’ve proved Him true!
                            God answers prayer, now venture on Him;
                            He answered me, He’ll answer you.

                            • Praise the Lord!
                              8 The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in mercy. 9 He will not always strive with us, nor will He keep His anger forever. 10 He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor punished us according to our iniquities. 11 For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward those who fear Him; 12 as far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us. 13 As a father pities his children, so the LORD pities those who fear Him. 14 For He knows our frame; He remembers that we are dust. Psalm 103:8-14




                              What If

                              What if...
                              God couldn’t take the time to bless us today because we couldn’t take the time to thank Him yesterday?

                              What if...
                              God decided to stop leading us tomorrow because we did not follow Him today?

                              What if...
                              we never saw another flower bloom because we grumbled when God sent the rain?

                              What if...
                              God didn’t walk with us today because we failed to recognize it as His day?

                              What if...
                              God took away the Bible tomorrow because we would not read it today?

                              What if...
                              God took away His message because we failed to listen to His messenger?

                              What if...
                              the door of the church was closed because we did not open the door of our heart?

                              What if...
                              God stopped loving and caring for us because we failed to love and care for others?

                              What if...
                              God would not hear us today because we would not listen to Him yesterday?

                              What if...
                              God answered our prayers the way we answer His call for service?

                              What if...
                              God met our needs the way we give Him our lives???

                                Praise the Lord!

                                And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
                                Philippians 4:19





                                In Time of Need

                                Not by my need alone I ask this token
                                That Thou, O Lord, dost hear and heed my cry;
                                But by Thy promise that cannot be broken,
                                That all my need in Christ Thou wilt supply;
                                Not by my love for Thee, so oft disproved,
                                Not by my gifts to Thee, so poor and small,
                                But by Thy love that gave Thy best-beloved,
                                And with that one great Gift included all.

                                Not by my faith I plead, for that can falter,
                                Aye, and has faltered in the days gone by;
                                But by Thy faithfulness that cannot alter,
                                And by Thine ordered covenants on high,
                                Set safe and sure above Time's brief duration,
                                Beyond all change, eternally the same;
                                By these I dare my fervent supplication,
                                By Thy great mercies and Thy holy name.
