“Happy They That Trust In Jesus”


HAPPY they who trust in Jesus;
Sweet their portion is and sure;
When the foe on others seizes,
God will keep His own secure:
Happy people!
Happy, though despised and poor.

Since His love and mercy found us,
We are precious in His sight;
Thousands now may fall around us,
Thousands more be put to flight,
But His presence
Keeps us safe by day and night.

Lo, our Saviour never slumbers,
Ever watchful is His care;
Though we cannot boast of numbers,
In His strength secure we are:
Sweet their portion,
Who our Saviour’s kindness share.

As the bird beneath her feathers
Guards the objects of her care,
So the Lord His people gathers,
Spreads His wings, and hides them there:
Thus protected,
All their foes they boldly dare.

Mega Million’s $1.6 Billion Jackpot

Yep! Amen! I totally agree!!! Another great spirit filled post from Tom 😁


In case you haven’t heard the news around the water cooler the past couple of days, the jackpot for the Mega Million Lottery has risen to a record $1.6 billion and the drawing is tonight.

Despite the daunting 1-in-302-million odds of winning, people will be queueing up at their favorite lottery outlet today to buy a ticket. Afterwards, they’ll be kibitzing enthusiastically with their friends, family, co-workers, and even total strangers about all of the things they are going to do and buy with that $1.6 billion (actually only $904 million after Uncle Sam takes his share).

I have a few thoughts:

  • Jesus Christ offers eternal life and fellowship with God to all those who repent of their sin and accept Him as their Savior by faith alone. There’s no comparison to eternal life in Christ and $904 million dollars. So why do people line up for a microscopic chance…

11 Scriptures to Combat Anxiety

Thanks to Wally over at Truth In Palmyra for reblogging this on his blog! EXCELLENT!

Elihu's Corner


A little over a week ago, I posted a query to the Elihu’s Corner Facebook Page: “What are you Reading?” The responses were excellent! I believe daily bible reading to be a vital part of our Christian walk, so it’s of great value to hear different strategies people use to remain consistent.

A couple of readers commented that they use “Scripture writing.” I wondered if there was a site or book they used to determine what they’d write. Apparently there are many websites that post scripture writing lists for each month.

There is such great value in writing and memorizing scripture. When we write out a scripture, we consider each word as we copy. Because it slows us down, we gain a sharper focus on what the text conveys. My middle daughter saw me checking into various plans, and said, “Oooh! Can we do this together?” (Who would say…

You think things are bad in this world now?

Just wait- it will get worse.

But for the believer we have HOPE to sustain us! Our Heavenly Father will see us through as long as we cling to Him and not the world and the things of it for one day it will all be gone- If we cling on to  the things of this world it will all have been for nought ☹️


2 Timothy 3

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,

Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.

But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as their’s also was.

10 But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience,

11 Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me.

12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.

14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;

15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.


Are We Salt?

Truth in Palmyra

Matthew 5.13

Jesus used many methods during His teaching methods while he was here on Earth. In this lesson, He used an analogy by comparing believers to salt. So, before we get too deep into this, we should take a look at what salt would have meant to the disciples listening to Him. Because Jesus often spoke using analogies and parables which would make almost instant sense to His audience.

Salt would have meant two things to the men listening to Jesus speak. Salt had basically two purposes in that time. First, salt was a flavoring; that’s no different than today really.  Salt was the most basic and common flavoring available, rather like it is today. Not only would salt provide flavor in and of itself, but it would also enhance and bring out any other spices used.  Second, salt was a preservative. This was not a day of refrigerators and freezers…
