Fanny Crosby-No Excuses

July 12, 2016

Fanny Crosby was blind from a small baby but never allowed her blindness to stop her from Serving Her Savior. She wrote the words to hundreds of hymns under her own name as well as pen names.

She was a teacher, author, wife and Godly, Christian. What a testimony to what one person can do who trusts fully in the Lord and allows the Holy Spirit to work through her.

Sometimes we have excuses why we cannot serve God. Illness, lack of money, job, family and many others. In the Bible a man used the excuse of having to bury his father. (Matthew 8:21) “What is your excuse? Decide to be effective for the Lord no matter what and get busy for Him. 

John 12:26 If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.

A Little Child

November 23, 2014


This is a beautiful picture of a little child giving thanks for the food. It is a joy to be in a restaurant or with one of the grandchildren and see them bow their heads and give thanks. Jesus says we should be as little children and follow their example.

Luke 18:16
But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not:for of such is the kingdom of God.

Mealtime Prayer

November 12, 2014

This simple prayer is taught to small children as a blessing for their food. We as adults sometimes forget the importance of thanking God for our meal, or maybe we are ashamed to bow our heads in public to give thanks if we are at a restaurant or at a business lunch. Even JESUS gave thanks for the provisions that God gave. Let us follow His example at every meal.

Matthew 15:36
And he took the seven loaves and the fishes, and gave thanks, and brake them, and gave to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.
