Rock of Ages, Cleft for me

Lean on Him I called on Your name, O Lord, Out of the lowest pit. You have heard my voice… O Lord, You have seen my oppression. Great is Thy faithfulness. Who is among you who [reverently] fears the Lord, who obeys the voice of His Servant, yet who walks in darkness and deep troubleContinue reading “Rock of Ages, Cleft for me”

How’s Your Rope?

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High, will remain secure and rest in the shadow of the Almighty [whose power no enemy can withstand].

Lord, If You Had Been Here…

The sisters sent word to Jesus saying, “Lord, behold, he whom You love is sick.” John 11:3 Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. So when He heard that he was sick, He then stayed two days longer in the place where He was. John 11: 5-6 Martha therefore, when she heard that Jesus was coming, went to meet Him, but Mary stayed atContinue reading “Lord, If You Had Been Here…”

He Notices You

As He (Jesus) passed along He noticed a man blind from his birth. John 9:1 AMPC Jesus noticed a man.

I’m immediately struck by two points in this short verse of Scripture.Continue reading “He Notices You”
