  • Praise the Lord!

    The parched ground (mirage) shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water.
    Isaiah 35:7

    The poor and needy seek water, but there is none, their tongues fail for thirst.
    I, the LORD, will hear them; I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them.
    I will open rivers in desolate heights, and fountains in the midst of the valleys;
    I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.

    Isaiah 41:17-18





    A Pool in the Wilderness

    The Lord Everlasting,
    The Creator of All,
    Giveth strength to the weary,
    And lifts them that fall.

    Thy God is e’er with thee,
    So be not dismayed;
    He will uphold thee
    When thou art afraid.

    When the poor are athirst,
    He maketh rivers to flow;
    And fountains in valleys
    On them He’ll bestow.

    In wilderness dry
    He placeth a pool
    With wellsprings of water,
    Refreshing and cool.

    Thou hast trusted the Lord
    And walked in His ways;
    May His water sustain thee
    The rest of thy days!




    Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~ Leo Buscaglia

    • Evening Praise the Lord




      Praise the Lord!
      And he said unto them, come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat. And they departed into a desert place by ship privately. Mark 6:31-32




      Come Ye Yourselves Apart

      Come ye yourselves apart and rest awhile,
      Weary, I know it, of the press and throng;
      Wipe from your brow the sweat and dust of toil,
      And in My quiet strength again be strong.

      Come ye aside from all the world holds dear,
      For converse which the world has never known;
      Alone with me and with my Father here,
      With Me and with my Father not alone.

      Come, tell me all that ye have said and done,
      Your victories and failures, hopes and fears;
      I know how hardly souls are wooed and won;
      My choicest crowns are always wet with tears.

      Come ye and rest: the journey is too great,
      And ye will faint beside the way and sink:
      The bread of life is here for you to eat,
      And here for you the wine of love to drink.

      Then, fresh from converse with your Lord, return
      And work till daylight softens into even:
      The brief hours are not lost in which ye learn
      More of your Master and His rest in heaven.




      Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

        Patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.
        1 Thessalonians 1:3





        The Hope of the Coming of the Lord

        A lamp in the night, a song in time of sorrow;
        A great glad hope which faith can ever borrow
        To gild the passing day, with the glory of the morrow,
        Is the hope of the coming of the Lord.

        A star in the sky, a beacon bright to guide us;
        An anchor sure to hold when storms betide us;
        A refuge for the soul, where in quiet we may hide us,
        Is the hope of the coming of the Lord.

        A call of command, like trumpet clearly sounding,
        To make us bold when evil is surrounding;
        To stir the sluggish heart and to keep in good abounding,
        Is the hope of the coming of the Lord.

        A word from the One to all our hearts the dearest,
        A parting word to make Him aye the nearest;
        Of all His precious words, the sweetest, brightest, clearest,
        Is the hope of the coming of the Lord.

        Blessed hope, blessed hope,
        Blessed hope of the coming of the Lord;
        How the aching heart it cheers,
        How it glistens through our tears,
        Blessed hope of the coming of the Lord.

          Praise the Lord!

          We are setting out for the place of which the LORD said, I will give it to you.
          Numbers 10:29

          And they journeyed…in the wilderness…toward the sunrise.
          Numbers 21:11





          ’Twill Not be Long

          ’Twill not be long, our journey here;
          Each broken sigh and falling tear
          Will soon be gone, and all will be
          A cloudless sky, a waveless sea.

          ’Twill not be long; the yearning heart
          May feel its every hope depart,
          And grief be mingled with its song;
          We’ll meet again; ’twill not be long.

          Though sad we mark the closing eye,
          Of those we loved in days gone by,
          Yet sweet in death their latest song
          We’ll meet again; ’twill not be long.

          These checkered wilds, with thorns o’erspread,
          Through which our way so oft is led
          This march of time, with truth so strong,
          Will end in bliss; ’twill not be long.

          Roll on, dark stream,
          We dread not thy foam;
          Roll on, dark stream,
          The pilgrim is longing for home,
          Yes, home sweet home.

          • Praise the Lord!

            There shall be showers of blessing.
            Ezekiel 34:26





            Sunday Morning Praise


            There Shall be Showers of Blessing

            There shall be showers of blessing: this is the promise of love;
            There shall be seasons refreshing, sent from the Savior above.
            Showers of blessing, Showers of blessing we need:
            Mercy drops round us are falling, but for the showers we plead.




            Mercy Drops

            It’s hard to carry a full bucket of water with a steady hand, some spilling will occur…When the gardener carries a full bucket of water while walking the path to the place in need of much water, the flowers along the pathway will benefit has well from the spilling drops of water that splash on them, and after getting those unexpected refreshing drops of water, their drooping buds lift their heads, and the blossoms show forth the radiant beauty that is in them, all because of a few drops of water.

            In the hymn, “There Shall be Showers of Blessing,” the chorus reads, “Mercy drops round us are falling.” Do we think of ourselves and those mercy drops in the light of little blessings? Little blessings like spilling drops of water, drops of water spilled along the way on others as we go to tend someone or some specific task; there times when we are those mercy drops, those small mercy drop blessings that we give to others. Nothing major, a momentary blessing, that bit of mercy, that kind touch that revives the weary soul, lifts the sagging spirit, and refreshes heart and spirit.

            We can do it because of the fruit of the spirit in us is watered and renewed everyday by the Holy Spirit. The daily filled cup we carry is meant to overflow and touch lives, in some instances like sprinkle if but for a moment those “Mercy drops” regardless of how small will be a blessing to others Dare we say, “Fill My Cup Lord,” so “He will fill your heart today with overflowing.”

            But how are we when we do not feel blessed to the full and overflowing? Still another will come along, like the gardener who carries a water filled bucket, filled with golden drops that will spill out a blessing, a blessing of love, mercy and kindness, then we are revived, what precious time of reviving, Hallelujah! Remember He forgets not His own, and calls us by name, He anoints us to be a blessing, to radiate the loveliness and truth of the altogether lovely Jesus. We are those mercy drops of cheer, encouragement, help, hope, comfort, and love You know, I think I hear the foot steps of our Great and Glorious Gardener.

              Praise the Lord!

              Come, Lord Jesus.
              Revelation 22:20





              Merciful Savior, Come And Be My Comfort

              Merciful Savior, come and be my comfort;
              Vanish all idols in Thy holy presence;
              Come and establish in my heart Thy kingdom;
              Come, O Lord Jesus.

              Come as the bridegroom to the bride beloved,
              Come Thou to strengthen faith and love and patience;
              Be Thou a very present help in danger;
              Come, O Lord Jesus.

              Come in my pleasure, come to me in sorrow,
              Come in the anguished hour of dire temptation,
              Come and deliver me from sin and evil,
              Come, O Lord Jesus.

                  When the enemy shall come in like a flood,
                  the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.

                  Isaiah 59:19







                  Sound the Battle Cry!

                  Sound the battle cry! See, the foe is nigh;
                  Raise the standard high for the Lord;
                  Gird your armor on, stand firm every one;
                  Rest your cause upon His holy Word.

                  Strong to meet the foe, marching on we go,
                  While our cause we know, must prevail;
                  Shield and banner bright, gleaming in the light,
                  Battling for the right we ne’er can fail.

                  O! Thou God of all, hear us when we call,
                  Help us one and all by Thy grace;
                  When the battle’s done, and the vict’ry’s won,
                  May we wear the crown before Thy face.

                  Rouse, then, soldiers, rally round the banner,
                  Ready, steady, pass the word along;
                  Onward, forward, shout aloud Hosanna!
                  Christ is Captain of the mighty throng
                  .

                    Praise the Lord!

                    Do not be discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s.
                    2 Chronicles 20:15





                    Onward, Christian Soldiers

                    Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,
                    With the cross of Jesus going on before.
                    Christ, the royal Master, leads against the foe;
                    Forward into battle see His banners go!

                    Like a mighty army moves the Church of God;
                    Brothers, we are treading where the saints have trod.
                    We are not divided, all one body we,
                    One in hope and doctrine, one in charity.

                    Crowns and thrones may perish, kingdoms rise and wane,
                    But the church of Jesus constant will remain.
                    Gates of hell can never against that church prevail;
                    We have Christ’s own promise, and that cannot fail.

                    Onward then, ye people, join our happy throng,
                    Blend with ours your voices in the triumph song.
                    Glory, laud and honor unto Christ the King,
                    This through countless ages men and angels sing.

                    Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,
                    With the cross of Jesus going on before
                    .

                        This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.
                        1 John 5:4





                        Victory Ahead

                        When the hosts of Israel led by God,
                        Round the walls of Jericho softly trod,
                        Trusting in the Lord,
                        They felt the conqueror’s tread,
                        By faith they saw the victory ahead.

                        David with a shepherd’s sling and five stones,
                        Met the giant on the field all alone,
                        Trusting in the Lord, he knew what God had said,
                        By faith he saw the victory ahead.

                        Daniel prayed unto the Lord thrice each day,
                        Then unto the lion’s den led the way,
                        Trusting in the Lord, he did not fear or dread,
                        By faith he saw the victory ahead.

                        Often with the carnal mind I was tried,
                        Asking for deliverance oft I cried,
                        Trusting in the Lord, I reckoned I was dead,
                        By faith I see the victory ahead.

                        When like those who’ve gone before to that land,
                        By death’s river cold and dark I shall stand.
                        Trusting in the Lord, I will not fear or dread,
                        By faith I see the victory ahead.

                        Victory ahead, victory ahead,
                        Through the blood of Jesus, victory ahead.
                        Trusting in the Lord, I hear the conqueror’s tread,
                        By faith I see the victory ahead.

                          Conquering now and still to conquer, who is this wonderful king?
                          Whence are the armies which He leadeth, while of His glory they sing?
                          He is our Lord and Redeemer, Savior and monarch divine;
                          They are the stars that forever bright in His kingdom shall shine.

                          Conquering now and still to conquer, Jesus, Thou ruler of all,
                          Thrones and their scepters all shall perish, crowns and their splendor shall fall,
                          Yet shall the armies Thou leadest, faithful and true to the last,
                          Find in Thy mansions eternal rest, when their warfare is past.

                          Not to the strong is the battle,
                          Not to the swift is the race,
                          Yet to the true and the faithful
                          Vict’ry is promised through grace.




                          Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

                          Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~ Leo Buscaglia

                          • Praise the Lord!

                            He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.
                            1 John 2:6




                            Can Others See Jesus in You?

                            Christ Jesus hath triumphed o’er Satan and death,
                            And now, praise His name, I am free.
                            Although He has gone to the Father’s right hand,
                            May others see Jesus in me.
                            May others see Jesus in me —
                            For how will the lost know of Jesus
                            If they cannot see Jesus in me?

                            O will you give heed to the message tonight,
                            And to your commission be true?
                            Are you representing the Savior aright,
                            Can others see Jesus in you?
                            Can others see Jesus in you —
                            For how will the lost know of Jesus
                            If they cannot see Jesus in you?

                            The harvest is plenteous, the fields they are white,
                            Alas! for the lab’rers are few.
                            ’Tis far better not to profess Jesus’ name,
                            If the world cannot see Him in you.
                            Can others see Jesus in you —
                            For how will the lost know of Jesus
                            If they fail to see Jesus in you?

                            • Evening Praise the Lord




                              Praise the Lord!

                              Let your light so shine before men,
                              that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.

                              Matthew 5:16

                              You are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read by all men;
                              clearly you are an epistle of Christ, ministered by us,
                              written not with ink but by the Spirit of the living God,
                              not on tablets of stone but on tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart.

                              2 Corinthians 3:2-3





                              Let Others See Jesus in You

                              While passing thro’ this world of sin,
                              and others your life shall view,
                              Be clean and pure without, within;
                              Let others see Jesus in you.

                              Your life’s a book before their eyes,
                              They’re reading it thro’ and thro’
                              Say, does it point them to the skis,
                              Do others see Jesus in you?

                              Then live for Christ both day and night,
                              Be faithful, be brave and true,
                              and lead the lost to life and Christ.
                              Let others see Jesus in you.

                              Let others see Jesus in you,
                              Yes, let others see Jesus in you.
                              Keep telling the story, be faithful and true;
                              Let others see Jesus in you.
