But now bring me a musician.
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
Lord God, I sing unto You “a new song.” I pray for Your Holy Spirit to fill me with the refreshing water of life. You said, Lord Jesus, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink” (John 7:37). I’m doing that just now as I worship You. My spiritual thirst is being quenched. Thank You, Jesus!
100 PERSONAL WORDS:
This month we will celebrate mothers! I’ve been so very blessed by the music of the mother of my four children. In the churches I pastored, she played piano or organ and led choirs. I was reading my diary from January 2, 1963. Here’s some of what I read: “We measured the children and weighed them. Elaine, 3′ 5″ and 40 lbs – Ellen, 3′ and 30 lbs – Reynold 2′ 8″ and 29 lbs. Norma-Jean is 3 and 1/2 months pregnant and weighs ???” (I’m being careful here). I love you, mother of my children. X0 X0! Ron arrived on May 29th, 1963, in the Deep River hospital. Ann, the mother of Ron’s three children, also gave birth to their daughter Andrea on May 29th, 1986. Andrea is now married to Rev. Jason Patterson, has earned her PhD, and is a mother of two herself.
Happy Mother’s Day to all you who have biological or adopted children and all women who celebrate being spiritual mothers to many children!
Yours because of “MOTHERS,”
P.S. Here’s a link I found on You Tube to a beautiful rendition of “Sing Unto the Lord” by a lovely couple. I believe they are from India (click here). You may have to endure an automobile commercial before the song, but it’s worth waiting for.
Jesus is the answer for the world today!
Thank You, Lord Jesus. Have Your way today, in Jesus’s great name, amen
Thanks Rob. I haven’t heard that song for years! I was working for World Vision when David Mainse came to the office to start the process of child sponsorship and we were almost overwhelmed by the response of people wanting to support the children. Thankfully we were able to get an IBN System 6 computer (which was the size of a VW bug car.) I could program it to print off quickly, the needed info for the people who requested to sponsor. It was an amazing response. Blessings all.
Amen Rob you are so right Jesus is the answer for the world today and everyday. It is sad how far our people have turned away from God and the governments that are elected by these people
We must as Christians step up and encourage everyone to get out and vote when they have the opportunity and to vote the Bible
Gad bless and keep our country free from the evil of the world
