A Favorite Hymn: When I Survey the Wonderous Cross

  1. While flipping through our hymn book today I came to this song. It had been awhile since I last sang or played it, and it was good to come across it again. 

    "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."  John 3:16


  2. When I survey the wondrous cross
  3. On which the Prince of glory died,
    My richest gain I count but loss,
    And pour contempt on all my pride.
  4. Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast,
    Save in the death of Christ my God!
    All the vain things that charm me most,
    I sacrifice them to His blood.
  5. See from His head, His hands, His feet,
    Sorrow and love flow mingled down!
    Did e’er such love and sorrow meet,
    Or thorns compose so rich a crown?
  6. Were the whole realm of nature mine,
    That were a present far too small;
    Love so amazing, so divine,
    Demands my soul, my life, my all.

Random Favourite Photo #7: Little Farm Boy

This is one of my favorite pictures of Luke. He was watching his Daddy unload trucks by the grain dryer.  It was one of the last beautiful fall days of the year.  A few minutes after I took this, Graham walked over to see us and Luke was one happy little boy, he loves his Dad. :) 

God's Word Shall Stand!

"The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever."  Isaiah 40:8

 

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made." John 1:1-3
2 Timothy 3:16 - All scripture [is] given by inspiration of God, and [is] profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

Matthew 24:35 - Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

Colossians 3:16 - Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

Hebrews 4:12 - For the word of God [is] quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and [is] a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Proverbs 30:5 - Every word of God [is] pure: he [is] a shield unto them that put their trust in him.

Thankful for God's Mercy, Compassions, and Faithfulness!


"It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is Thy faithfulness." Lam. 3:25
