Daily Verse

Sunday~
"How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to your word. With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from you commandments! I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you." Psalm 119:9-11

Why do we try to conform God to our will? Live in His word and know true joy.

Monday~
"Make me to know your ways, O LORD, teach me your paths. Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long. Remember your mercy, O LORD, and your steadfast love, for they have been from of old."
Psalm 25:4-6

God reveals the truth of our time and all time to us through Scripture.

Tuesday~
"The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul; the tstimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple: the precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes; the fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever; the rules of the LORD are true, and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb."
Psalm 19:7-10

All the laws in all the books in all the libraries of the world are but a footnote to the law of God.

Wednesday~
"Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways ackowledge him, and he will make straight your paths."

Don't measure success by society's standards. Use Christ as your measuring stick.

"Only Jesus"

Only Jesus, only Jesus.
Who can heal my hurting heart?
Only Jesus.
Who can wash my sin away?
Who can give vict'ry ev'ry day?
Who is with me all the way?
Only Jesus.
When the dreams that I have longed for
seem to vanish in the night,
and the plans I've made start fading from my sight.
When my life is almost over and the night is falling fast,
Who will feel my deepest heartache?
Who will give me peace at last?
Only Jesus, only Jesus.
Who can heal my hurting heart?
Only Jesus.
Who can wash my sin away?
Who can give vict'ry ev'ry day?
Who is with me all the way?
Only Jesus.
When I wander from the pathway
and I fail my Lord again,
Tho' the night is dark, I cannot hide from Him.
When my spirit lies exhausted
But my guilt still rages on,
Who will give me His compassion
and restore to me a song?
Only Jesus, only Jesus.
Who can heal my hurting heart?
Only Jesus.
Who can wash my sin away?
Who can give vict'ry ev'ry day?
Who is with me all the way?
Only Jesus. Only Jesus,
Only Jesus, Only Jesus.

This song written by Ron and Shelly Hamilton (Patch the Pirate and Sissy Seagull) is included in the Christmas Musical "Goodwill to Men." Since the church was so small my husband and I had ordered the split track cd for the music from this musical and were going to sing one of the wonderful songs from it every week until Christmas. "Only Jesus" was the song we were going to sing last Sunday, December 7th. As it turns out I woke up and my throat wasn't going to hold up so we were going to postpone singing it until yesterday, December 14th. Jason and I hadn't given it a second look since the 7th, the day that one of the men in the church told us that as far as he was concerned we were no longer the pastor of the church. Reading these words, it is amazing the strength and love that God can send to a couple going through such a difficult time. We are thankful for all the wonderful friends and support that has been extended to us in the past week. We only pray that some how, some way we will be able to extend the gratitude that is due to each and every one of you. Until then, just thing of who is there for you through everything:

Only Jesus, only Jesus.
Who can heal my hurting heart?
Only Jesus.
Who can wash my sins away?
Who can give vict'ry ev'ry day?
Who is with me all the way?
Only Jesus.
