Be Still My Soul

be still my soul p.1

This is one of my favorite hymns. The lyrics could not be more perfect for everything that comes our way. No matter what happens, God will be faithful to you. The wind and waves still know His voice who ruled them while He dwelt below. Through the storm, we will come to a joyful end. I painted several pages in my Art Journal just to have a place to put these lyrics. This book I am working on is from the public library. It is a discarded book and is over-sized. It measures 9″ x 12″ and gives me a great… more…

I Joined the Bible Art Journaling Craze!

I started painting in my Bible last October. It’s not the Bible I use everyday to read and study in, but a special Bible that has big margins. Bible art journaling has apparently been a craze that is growing weekly and I can see why. It is a wonderful way to spend time in the Word focusing on a particular verse. Bibles with drawings in them are called “illuminated” Bibles. An illuminated manuscript is a manuscript in which the text is supplemented with such decoration as initials, borders and miniature illustrations. It used to refer only to gold or silver decorations; but now refers to any decorated or… more…

You Have an Appointment to Receive Your Wages

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23 Everyone of us has two appointments that are set in stone. We have already experienced ONE of these appointments – our birth.  The second appointment will be the time and date of our death. You will die on a day that is already known to God. So will I. And what comes next? Do we come back in another life as a different person or even as a cow or a fly, and then repeat that again and again… more…

Against You only have I sinned…

“Conviction of sin by the Holy Spirit blots out every relationship on earth and makes us aware of only one– ‘Against You, You only, have I sinned’ (Psalm 51:4). The great miracle of the grace of God is that He forgives sin, and it is the death of Jesus Christ alone that enables the divine nature to forgive and to remain true to itself in doing so. The miracle of redemption is that God turns me, the unholy one, into the standard of Himself, the Holy One. He does this by putting into me a new nature, the nature of… more…

Unto you it is given….to suffer.

it is given to suffer

  God keeps a costly school. Many of its lessons are spelled out through tears. Richard Baxter said, “O God, I thank Thee for a bodily discipline of eight and fifty years”; and he is not the only man who has turned a trouble into triumph. This school of our Heavenly Father will soon close for us; the term time is shortening every day. Let us not shrink from a hard lesson or wince under any rod of chastisement. The richer will be the crown, and the sweeter will be Heaven, if we endure cheerfully to the end and graduate… more…

Revival – what would it take to see it?

demonstration of Christianity

Watch this video and get an idea of what happened in the past from the preaching of Leonard Ravenhill and more. We won’t necessarily see this type of revival now. I do  not believe God will allow it to happen within the four walls of a building where the people in charge could get any credit for what happens. Something sovereign and supernatural could happen as a result of the difficulties that are soon to fall upon the earth, and particularly to this country. When I watch this, I feel the anointing and it brings me to tears.
