“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.

~By Thomas Kelly (1769-1854)~

Is Life Worth Living?

Life is worth living,
If lived to Him,
Who paid my penalty.
All is worth giving,
If given for Him
Who gave Himself for me.

Life’s not worth living
If lived for self.
‘Tis hollow mockery.
‘Tis not worth living,
‘Tis wasted time,
And ends in misery.

Life is worth living
If but for this:
To praise Him for His grace,
And then the giving
Of His blest Word,
That some may see, His face.

There’s no real living
Apart from Him
Who gave Himself for us.
The joy of giving
Is known to those
Who bow at Jesus’ cross.

~H. McD.~

❤️ 1 John 5:11-12

11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.

12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

“What goes through the minds of Catholic pew sitters…”

“What goes through the minds of Catholic pew sitters when they drop money in the Sunday mass offering bucket? Are they totally oblivious to the fact that they are enabling pedophiles and their enablers? The Catholic diocese of Harrisburg, PA just announced that it is filing for bankruptcy to shield its financial assets from abuse victims, making it the 20th diocese in the U.S. to do so. I’m seeing multiple reports that bankruptcy is also imminent for the nearby diocese of Buffalo.”-Tom

“It’s not a crime to support Catholic Church, but donations might help pay for theirs”

“The Glory of God In The Face of Jesus Christ”

Jesus, Thou glorious Son of God,
Our Life eternal and our Lord,
Gladly we gaze upon Thy face,
Its beauty and its glory trace.
When in ruin, chaos and sin,
By darkness and by gloom hemmed in,
Thy voice we heard, the Living Word,
And now we live to Thee, our Lord.
What led Thee, Lord, so great, so holy,
To take that place, made sin, so lowly?
Oh, ’twas that we might be with Thee,
From sin and all defilement free.
‘Twas love, ’twas love, that led Thee there,
That we in righteousness might share
Thy Father’s love– be heirs with Thee,
Joint-heirs through all eternity.
While gather’d to Thy name, Lord, here,
Thyself our hearts and minds doth cheer;
And nought amongst the things of time,
Can gladden hearts by grace made Thine.
Jesus, Thou glorious Son of God,
Our portion now, our sure Reward;
All that we need we find in Thee,
And ever Thou our all wilt be.
We praise Thee, and shall ever praise,
As on Thy glorious face we gaze:
Grace and glory there we see,
And gazing are transformed to Thee.

2 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.

“…and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” BEAUTIFULLY INSPIRING!! HALLELUJAH!!

“We Are But Strangers Here”

We are but strangers here;
Heaven is our home;
Earth is a desert drear;
Heaven is our home.
Dangers and sorrows stand
Round us on every hand;
Heaven is our fatherland,
Heaven is our home.

What though the tempest rage,
Heaven is our home;
Short is our pilgrimage,
Heaven is our home:
This life’s wild wintry blast
Soon will be overpast;
We shall reach home at last;
Heaven is our home.

There at our Saviour’s side,
In heaven our home,
We shall be glorified;
Heaven is our home.
There with the good and blest,
Those we love most and best,
We shall for ever rest,
In heaven our home.

Therefore we’ll murmur not,
Heaven is our home;
Whate’er our earthly lot,
Heaven is our home.
We shall yet surely stand
There at our Lord’s right hand;
Heaven is our fatherland,
Heaven is our home.

~ By T. R. Taylor ~

This is NOT our home! HALLELUJAH!

2 Peter 3:13
Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

A Poem ❤️

God Careth

One of the sweet old chapters,
After a day like this:
The day brought tears and trouble,
The evening brings no kiss,
Nor rest in the arms I long for—
Rest, and refuge, and home;
Grieved, and lonely, and weary,
Unto the Book I come.
One of the sweet old chapters—
The love that blossoms through
His care of the birds and lilies
Out in the meadow dew.
His evening lies soft around them;
Their faith is simply to be;
Ah! hushed by the tender lesson.
My God, let me rest in Thee.

~Poem By S. P. Bartlett~

❤️ 1 Peter 5:7

7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

Presenting a Different Jesus

“ The Lord never promised it would be easy to be His disciple but he promised to be with us always and give us the words to say when we testify about Him.”
