Faith

April 8, 2020

“Faith is like radar which sees through the fog, the reality of things at a distance that the human eye cannot see.” Corrie ten Boom

Corrie must have had many days when her faith would be tested and she could not see what was ahead. In World War II her family protected hundreds of Jews from death by hiding them in a hidden room in her bedroom. Eventually the hiding place was detected and Corrie was sent to a German concentration camp. But she never lost her faith in God.

After the war she returned to her home and helped concentration camp survivors get rehabilited into a regular life. She wrote many books and became a sought after speaker especially in Christian gatherings. She moved to the United States and died on her 91st birthday in California.

If you feel like you are living in a fog, not able to see what God has planned for you, be encouraged, God has a plan and propose for your life and whatever your circumstances God will bring you through. He sees and will guide you with His eye.

Psalms 32:7-8 Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah. I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.

Walt Whitman Quote

“Keep your face always toward the sunshine – and shadows will fall behind you.
Walt Whitman

There is a beautiful song…Turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full into His wonderful face and the things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace.

In these troubled times, we need to look to Jesus.

Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:2

Church

August 25, 2019

“Just sayin’…Church is important. Gathering together as a group of believers is important. Encouragement from the Word and other believers is important. I’m not sure where you are today. Maybe you are tired…be renewed at church. Maybe you are depressed…be uplifted at church. Maybe you are discouraged by the church itself…be reconciled at church. Maybe you have lost your way…be directed at church. Church…Christ died for it. It’s important. Be thankful if you have a choice of church today. Some people do not have a church they have a choice to attend. You do. Be thankful. Go to church. It’s important.” Joy Bowker Crockett

Quote from the wife of a Pastor. She has so much truth and wisdom that her comments are worth reposting. Thank you, Joy.

Ephesians 3:21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

Navy Anchors Away

July 6, 2018

Stand Navy out to sea,

Fight our battle cry

We’ll never change our course,

So vicious foe steer shy-y-y-y.

Roll out the TNT,

Anchors Aweigh.

Sail on to victory

And sink their bones to Davy Jones, hooray!

Anchors Aweigh, my boys,

Anchors Aweigh.

Farewell to foreign shores,

We sail at break of day-ay-ay-ay.

Through our last night ashore,

Drink to the foam,

Until we meet once more.

Here’s wishing you a happy voyage home.

Blue of the mighty deep

Gold of God’s great sun.

Let these our colors be

Till all of time be done, done, done, done.

On seven seas we learn

Navy’s stern call

Faith, courage, service true,

With honor, over honor, over all.

Proverbs 30:18-19

There be three things which are too wonderful for me,

yea, four which I know not:

The way of an eagle in the air;

the way of a serpent upon a rock;

the way of a ship in the midst of the sea;

and the way of a man with a maid.
