No Hope to Peace

February 27, 2021

Ephesians 2: 12b & 13 …..having no hope, and without God in the world: But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.

The Bible tells us that before we accepted Jesus as our Savior we were without hope, lost and on our way to spending eternity without God and Heaven.

But, after salvation, we are close to God through the blood of Jesus.

It Is Well With My Soul

February 18, 2021

This great hymn was written in a time of tragedy. The Spafford family had lost their small son in the same year 1871 as the Chicago fire. He also suffered financial problems due to the fire.

Hoping a voyage would ease the pain of loosing the son, Horatio sent his family on an ocean liner to Europe, planning to join them later.

Their 4 daughters died in the shipwreck (pictured above). His wife survived the wreck.

On his way to meet his grieving wife, passing the spot where his daughters died, Horatio G. Spafford wrote these words.

When peace like a river attendeth my way, When sorrows like sea billows roll, Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say, It is well, it is well with my soul. Chorus: It is well with my soul, It is well, it is well with my soul

And the peace of God which surpasses all understanding, shall keep your hearts, your minds through Christ Jesus. – Philippians 4:7.

Sometimes we feel that our world is in chaos. Maybe the news is depressing, we may have problems in our family, illness or surgery is taking a toll on us. Whatever the circumstances, there is one thing we can look to for peace and comfort.

A Sad Day

January 7, 2021

Yesterday was a sad day for Americans. When the US Capital building is invaded by protesters, every citizen in our country should be sad.

There is one thing every Christian should do today. Pray and ask God for the healing of America.

Pray for President Trump and President-elect Biden. Both of these men need our prayers. They need wisdom and guidance. Pray that they seek answers from God.

Pray that there be peace in America.

Thankful for God’s Peace!

2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

A wonderful verse for today! God promises safety and freedom from fear if we listen to Him.

The Cure For Shot Nerves

July 28, 2020

Thinking of something to encourage those who read this blog, I chose a book on hymns, “Then Sings My Soul” by Robert J. Morgan.
He wrote a forward “The Cure For Shot Nerves”. Thinking that is a catchy title, I read what he wrote about how the old hymns can calm the spirit and help bring peace to the soul.

It is rare in some churches to even hear the old hymns anymore and that is sad.
“In the Garden” He walks with me/ and He talks with me/ and tells me I am His own.
“Jesus Loves Me”, “Amazing Grace”, “I Need Thee Every Hour” and many more that encourage the heart.

Today, if you are stressed, feeling overwhelmed, or just plan discouraged, think of your favorite hymn and sing it, hum it or just let it flood your mind with how good God is, and soon you will find the comfort you need.

When everyday things seem to get worse, especially if we listen to the news on TV, radio or other media, God give us blessed promises.

Jesus promised us peace in our hearts. The world around us may seem like gloom and doom, but we can have complete peace and freedom from fear. Cast all your cares upon Jesus. He cares for you.
