How Great Thou Art!

O LORD my God! When I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds Thy hands have made,
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy pow’r throughout the universe displayed,

[Refrain]
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee.
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee.
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!

This reminds me of how little we really know of Him or anything else for that matter. Imagine it. The knowledge it would take to create a universe so complex as ours and to keep it in balance for as long as it has been standing! The beauty, the danger, the temperatures, the axises, the tilt, the very precious flowers, the very tall trees, the winds, the clouds, the creatures, and man. To look out into the distance on a clear starry night, laying on a dewy field in the middle of nowhere, just counting the stars as they fall from the sky. Have you ever noticed that they don’t hit us? Why not?

When through the woods and forests glades I wander
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees;
When I look down from a lofty mountain grandeur
And hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze,

[Refrain]

Nature is one of the gifts of God that I truly enjoy, but you must be careful not to test it. Nature is as dangerous as it is beautiful. It cannot be controlled by man (Al Gore), no matter how much we think we know. If we try to change something in nature in one area, it effects many changes in nature elsewhere. When we cannot possibly know of these consequences, we should not venture in where Angels dare not tread.

And when I think that God, His Son not sparing,
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in;
That on the Cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin.

[Refrain]

I couldn’t say it any better. I would like to say a couple words, though. For someone to display this amount of love for me when I was still a sinner, it is a debt I cannot repay. Fortunately for me, He asks not for repayment. Only that I pick up my own Cross and follow Him, and I have.

When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation
And take me home, what joys shall fill my heart!
Then I shall bow in humble adoration
And there proclaim, my God, how great Thou art!

[Refrain]

Wow. I am awaiting this day with patience and excitement. Jesus has gone before me to prepare for me a room in the Father’s house. I can only imagine it will be worthy of someone who has lived a better life than me, but Jesus has covered my sins and made me white as snow. I know I will be satisfied with any room I am privileged to receive.

Oh my, I just had a thought. Imagine all the people I will be able to talk to? Moses, Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Rebekah, Joseph, Jacob, Mary, Ruth, Ezra, Paul, Jesus of course! I would have thought that would have gone without saying, but I had better include Him. lol. It’s only sad that I cannot tell all the people on earth what it is like once I leave this world. (Don’t panic. I’m fine.)

What caused me to think of writing this? I don’t know exactly. I was sitting there in bed and it just came to me. Is there someone out there who needs prayers? Edification? Reassurance? He is Faithful, and He will never forsake you. NO MATTER WHAT. Are you weak? That is when He is strong. He can bear your burdens. Just seek Him, let Him carry your yoke (weight), let Him love and heal you until you are able to do so yourself. Get well, my friend, and God bless you.

Did God part the Red Sea?

While God performed many miracles during the time Moses was trying to free the Hebrew people, was there any evidence left behind to prove that the parting of the sea actually did happen? I’ll give you some sites, and you make your own conclusions.

First of all, there has been an archaeological find in the Red Sea which uncovered the presence of a very, very old chariot! One site is Wyatt Archaeological Research discusses the actual crossing, while part 4 discusses the actual discovery of an ancient chariot wheel. There are 5 parts altogether in this particular site.

Another site is World Net Daily. There is a word of caution from the wife of the archaeologist who first found an artifact:

“[At first] I thought everything was a chariot wheel!” Mrs. Wyatt exclaimed, noting how difficult it is for the untrained eye to distinguish an artifact from a piece of coral. “I’m just trying to be cautious about over-identifying too much. … It is God’s truth, and we can’t hype it up. We can’t add to it.”

However, she notes a big problem for explorers and scientists is that the Egyptian government no longer allows items to be removed from the protected region. Thus, someone claiming to find an artifact will have a hard – if not impossible – time verifying its authenticity, a classic catch-22.

This is very good advice. It is always wise to be cautious. It is also suspicious why the Egyptian government does not want the TRUTH to be known, if it is the truth. (I believe it to be true, artifacts or not.)

Here is another site for you to research: The Hebrew Red Sea Crossing (Exodus). It is quite long, and it includes Egyptian inscriptions that could be relevent to this event.

Maybe there is a group of scientists who are interested in this area not for Biblical purposes but for scientif accuracy? I searched the web over and I thought I thought found truth seekers, but phfffft I was wrong. No, seriously, there are some scientists who are interested, I’m sure. They just haven’t about it. I did leave a comment for one of them, so hopefully he will return my questions with answers.

I did, however, find a site that could bring some…uhmm…contraversy? (lol) The name of the site is Archaeology and the Exodus:

Biblical Archaeology is often divided into two camps: The “minimalists” tend to downplay the historical accuracy of the Bible, while the “maximalists,” who are in the majority and are by and large not religious, tend to suggest that archaeological evidence supports the basic historicity of the Bible text.

Oh my! Well, it is a Jewish site, and our brothers and sisters do love some color in their lives. (If there is nothing to discuss and agree or disagree, this is a day that has been wasted! lol) Ya know, I do believe many Christians are of the same cloth. 😉

So why do I insist on all this evidence? I do not. I just believe it is rather interesting that people would prefer to believe that life can from nothing, babies are not babies until they can breathe on their own (does that mean they are not babies if they on an incubator?), and all other types of nonsense. Yes, you may believe that I believe in nonsense, but that gives me the right to tell you that it takes more faith to believe what you believe! By the way, where is your scientific PROOF that man evolved from a slimy creature in the sea? Why aren’t there more of us? Why do we compliment each other? I thought this supposed to be random? Hmm.

No matter. I find it interesting, and that’s what matters. After all, it is MY site. lol. Have a great day everyone, and to my Christian friends, God bless you. To my Jewish friends, G-d bless you. 😉

So, you’re too good to go to Church?

Many people fall into the trap of, “I cannot go to that Church. There are too many hypocrites in there!” Yes, even I have been there and done that. Ya know what I found out? There was just one less hypocrite in the Church!

I know it is frustrating when we see people sin right out there in the open, but how many of us are sinning on the inside while we sit in judgement of those who sin in our sight? Do we approach them with love and the intention to edify and help them? Do we offer to talk with them about their sin to find out if they are even aware of it? Do we offer any guidance? Do we offer them a way back into the good graces of God? No? Then we have sinned and become the hypocrite.

By the way, why are we looking at others? Are we not there to worship our Creator? Are we not there to learn about our Creator? I suggest that before we decide who is ‘worthy’ or not of God’s grace [which is a decision I do believe God can handle very well, thank you], we look in the mirror. Are we right with God? If we were perfect, Jesus would not have had to die on the Cross for our sins!

If you are that good, then you are sinning by not giving of yourself to those of us who could learn from you. So you see for all Christians, we should go to Church. For those of us who physically cannot find a way to get to Church, there are a couple good TV Churches. Dr. D. James Kennedy (may he rest in peace) has a very good service. They are using tapes of his messages which are still pertinent today. Also, Dr. Stanley is a fine Paster. These are the only two I would watch, though. I am housebound, so I watch Dr. Kennedy every Sunday.

Let us step back for a moment and remember why we go to Church in the first place. Fellowship is also a huge part of it. We are in the world all the time, we need to be around like-minded people to get centered again. This is how we remain accountable to one another. One day you may be going through some awful experience in your life, and who will know unless you have a bond within your Church? I’m talking about someone who can help you spiritually. They can pick up on your need more effectively than someone who does not know you in the same way.

Maybe you could edify someone else just by your presence! Maybe it is your turn to help, or maybe it is your turn to be in need of help. Either way, would you care to take a chance on NOT being available because someone sinned against you or just was a hypocrite? HOW DARE YOU! Have you not heard the song, “Humble thyself in the sight of the LORD, and He will lift you up, higher and higher, and He will lift you up.”? Please allow Him to heal you using His children. None of us are perfect, and we are going to make mistakes. But do not forsake Him. He will never forsake you. God bless you, and I pray you read this. No names mentioned.

Oh my, what an oxymoron! Christmas time is a time when everyone is supposed to celebrate the birth of our LORD and Saviour, yet behind the scenes there is much work to be done. Yes, the cooking, the shopping, the cleaning of the clothes to wear to Church, the tree and decorating, and the blogging. A new phenomenon!

I have tackled most of it. It’s the blogging time I have a hard time finding. The only thing I want to really say in this post is Merry Christmas to all of readers, friends, family, and people I’ve yet to meet. God bless your efforts and you.

For those of you who are not Christians yet for whatever reason, to you I pray for peace in your heart. Peace that will allow you to allow me my LORD and my love for Him. You do not have to agree with me, but do not deny me. I won’t stand for it. Just as I won’t stand for anyone trying to force religion on you. Fair is fair.

I pray for all our troops who have served, are serving, and will serve our blessed country. May God continue to protect, guide, strengthen, love and grant them success in each mission. May He also make it possible for them to enjoy this day as best they can.

Please remember their families and other loved ones who are still here while they are yet thousands of miles away. Pray for them so that the distance will not be so hard to bear. They deserve so much gratitude and appreciation, but they also deserve our true support.

Please try to get to a Veteran’s Hospital today. They sometimes have no visitors, and today would be a great day to show up. Imagine that. All that is necessary is showing up. Wow. That is also that is necessary to bring a smile to someone who gave of themselves so that we may remain free. Protectors of Liberty. As Jesus came to offer us life eternal, a way to wash away our sins, these men and women protect us in their own way.

Am I comparing them to the Christ? No. Jesus came to grant life eternal to all those who would accept Him into their hearts and repent of their sins. He promises to wash them white as snow as far as their sins go, but I am saying that these men and women are taking a chance of laying down their lives for us as well. The one life they have while here on earth. I just happen to believe that is pretty awesome. I love our LORD. I love our military, also. May God bless them and you this Christmay day.

Oh my! Where did the time go? I must conclude with this:

2 In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. 2(This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) 3And everyone went to his own town to register.

4So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. 5He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. 6While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, 7and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

8And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. 12This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”

13Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,

14Glory to God in the highest,

and on earth peace to men on

whom his favor rests.”

15When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”

16So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. 17When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, 18and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. 19But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. 20The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.

Luke 2:1-20

Merry Christmas, and God bless you each and every one. I treasure you dearly. Stay safe, Morgan, and a special Merry Christmas to you. 😉

    Once again we are confronted by the Marxist leanings of our edu-propagandist system. No wonder. It is alright to have the children mock the Muslim religion by pretending to participate in it, you must, but any mention of our national anthem? OH MY GOD! You really should read this article about the Kern High School District who are taking a vote on whether it is CONSTITUTIONAL or OFFENSIVE or not. Huh?

    Hat tip: Stop the ACLU: California School Battles Over “In God We Trust”

    When things like this get so bizzarro, we end up with ugliness such as the next article.

    Would you consider this child abuse or brainwashing?

    Help us to stop this abuse for all of our children. They are entitled to grow up, learn how to discern for themselves, and understand logic. It is only right and fair.

    Gratitude abounds

    I awake this feeling almost everyday. I’d be lieing if I claimed everyday. Some days I forget or am too wrapped up within myself to see the bigger picture. But for a moment, then I remember, gratefully. I am alive, I live in the greatest nation ever on the planet earth, I can walk, I can talk, I can breathe on my own, I can laugh, I can create, I can write. All of these things I can do at my will without fear of repercussion.

    We may be only 4% of the world’s population, but we are the wealthiest in spirit, wealthiest in materialistic ways, wealthiest in choices and wealthiest by the grace of God. Had He not had His Gracious hand over us, we would have surely met disaster many times over.

    So why is it that people would like to make this a muslim nation when each and every muslim nation is horrendous? Why would they desire we forget about our Creator? Could it be because they do not like what is right and love what is evil? Could it be possible that it has been so long that they do not know the difference?

    Aha! But I say, “NO!” Why? Because the Bible says no. In Romans 1:18-32, (all bolding is mine)

    God’s Wrath Against Mankind
    18The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities–His eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.

    21For although they knew God, they neither glorified Him as God nor gave thanks to Him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images that were made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.

    24Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshipped and served created things rather than the Creator–who is forever praised. Amen.

    26Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. 27In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.

    28Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, He gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. 29They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.

    Wow. That’s a mouthful, eh? Have I ever done any of these things? Yes. Do I struggle at times still? Yes. But I know that there is One who Save me from death’s grip, and that is Jesus Christ, my LORD and Savior.

    Remember as a child how we used to push our parents to find out where the bounderies were? Well, at the time we may not have known that’s what we were doing, but we all did it. That is because every creature, every human being, needs direction, guidance, love, discipline and correction.

    That is why I am so grateful that I can practice my faith as a Christian in this country, no matter whether you like it or not.

    Back to those verses, though. They say very much and give so much insight to the many seemingly unanswered questions we have of God. The answers can be found in this Bible and in these verses. Why does evil happen? Because we have turned away from God, we have told Him He is no longer needed in our schools, and His Ten Commandments? Why that’s illegal! Poppy-cock! You may sit down for this and allow it to happen, but I will not.

    It is necessary for us to fight the American-Communist-Legal-Union (ACLU) with everything we have. The truth is on our side, and if we don’t, then who will? Could you please answer me that? We fought the godless communists, only to find them in our schools teaching our children and throwing out God! HOW DARE THEY! They were able to do this because we were asleep. Also, we did not know our own Constitution! They knew it better than we did.

    Well my dear readers, it is time we educated ourselves. They have infested our Churches to the point where no one even speaks about Hell or fire and brimstone! Are you okay with that? This is not a church. It is a place where people gather to pretend they are christians. If you attend such a Church, I recommend you quickly find one that knows the Word of God and teaches it to everyone. We are all His disciples, not just the Pastor. Do not leave all the work up to him. You have your own Cross to bear.

    Excuse me, I get upset when I consider the state of affairs of my beloved country and the world. But the reason I am so grateful?

    The LORD Appears to Solomon: 2Chronicles 7:11-22.
    11When Solomon had finished the temple of the LORD and the royal palace, and succeeded in carrying out all he had in mind to do in the temple of the LORD and in his own palace, 12the LORD appeared to him at night and said:

      “I have heard your prayer and have this place for Myself as a temple for sacrifices.”

      13“When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among My people, 14if My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 15Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place. 16I have chosen and consecrated this temple so that My Name may be there forever. My eyes and My heart will always be there.”

      17As for you, if you walk before Me as David your father did, and do all I command, and observe My decrees and laws, 18I will establish your royal throne, as I covenanted with David your father when I said, ‘You shall never fail to have a man to rule over Israel.'”

      19But if you turn away and forsake the decrees and commands I have given you and go off to serve other gods and worship them, 20then I will uproot Israel from My land, which I have given them, and I will reject this temple I have consecrated for My Name. I will make it a byword and an object of ridicule among all peoples. 21And though this temple is now so imposing, all who pass by will be appalled and say, ‘Why has the LORD done such a thing to this land and to this temple?’ 22People will answer, ‘Because they have forsaken the LORD, the God of their fathers, who brought them out of Egypt, and have embraced other gods, worshipping and serving them–that is why He brought all this disaster on them.'”

    Wow. It is absolutely amazing how we can search for answers in the Bible and go to two entirely different books, the first being the New Testament-the latter being the Old Testament, and we come right back to the righteousness of the LORD. I was seeking the prayer in which God promises to heal our land, but I do not like to take verses out of context. That is why they are so long. In case you were wondering. lol.

    Yes, this is my great hope. That we would all repent of our sins, turn from our wicked way, and seek the LORD with all of our heart, our mind, our soul and our strength. Day and night. Do you need a reason to pray? Pray for our men and women in uniform who are keeping you free. Show them your gratitude, although they may never know it. God will know it, and He will account to you. Pray for the sick, the elderly, the lost. There are so many things about which you could pray!

    The most important prayer of all, though, is the prayer you pray when you make the decision to ask the LORD Jesus to come into your heart and forgive your sins. Yes, it is by far the most important. That does not mean the others do not count, they do! We are just talking, you and me, about which is the most important.

    If your Church no longer asks people if they are Christians, then it is not a Christian Church. RUN out of there. Just because the building claims to be a Church, does not make it so. Please, come with me. We can have Bible study over the net! It is better than worshipping other gods. No, you do not have to be a Christian to join a fellowship, but you must abide by the Christian commandments. They are the same as the Jewish commandments.

    I am grateful that the LORD has taken my place and freed me from my sin. I am grateful for His direction. He leads me away from evil. I love Him, and I am very grateful that He loves me. God bless you all. Have a wonderfully blessed day.

    Dost Thou look upon thee with adorning eyes? Searching my soul for my every care. Such blessings I humbly accept with the knowledge that I am less than rags upon Thou’s sight. How merciful and graceful Thou art to me. Thou hast come at my time of desperation.

    How dost Thou know? Why dost Thou care? You are surely Omniscient and Compassionate. He has entered in again where he has no place nor right. I pray Thee, protect me. Do not allow mine enemy to find me.

    I pray, LORD, please keep watch over Morgan and his team. Crush his enemies before him, do not allow them sight before him. I pray, LORD, help him in everyway and everyday. The other two that went with him, please protect them and their teams. Even more precious, protect their families with a hedge of protection around them. Morgan and his teams as well.

    You have been doing such a magnificent job. I thank You with all of my heart. What can I do that is worth of Your grace? I have accepted Your Son, Jesus Christ, as my LORD and Saviour. I have repented of my sins. I have asked for the Holy Spirit to abide in my heart. That is all? But that is so simple!

    You have already paid the cost for my sins, and I am so sorry that I put You in that position. I thank You so much for Your love for me. I know You offer it freely for all those who will seek Your face. I pray everyone does.

    Whenever I look around and lift mine eyes up to You, I can see some of Your creation and it is good. It is beautiful. I love those mountains with snowcaps, the valleys with the green, green grass. The streams that run silently with the purest of water. Such a delight!

    I still remember to thank You for my legs, that I may walk. My lungs, that I may breathe again without tubes everywhere! The little and the big things You have blessed me with are so grand, and I thank You.

    Lastly, but certainly not leastly, I thank You for the wonderful people You have surrounded about me. They are caring, intelligent, thoughtful, creative, and they all remind me of You and Your attributes. Yes, I am the most blessed person alive, and that also is due to You. Thank You. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

    No kidding. I was just sitting here flipping through the cartoons when behold my eyes! The Veggie Tales were on the tube! They were so adorable. I think this will be a good thing for our children.

    I’ve searched the net, and I’ve found many articles denounsing NBC for stripping God out of the picture. Do these people have such little faith? No, not NBC, the writers of these articles! Once these children watch Veggie Tales in the morning, do you believe they will not want more?

    Mom and Dad will then order more Veggie Tales from the store. Then they will allow their children to watch the Christian version of all the wonderful messages that are the original Veggie Tales hallmark.

    See, there are many things in this world to get our panties in a wad about, but I just don’t see how this is one of them. Would I like to see them finish each show with a Bible verse? Of course! Is our God so weak that He cannot be found in the cartoon I saw this morning? NO! They did teach morals and courage. They did teach how to solve a problem. When is the last time you saw that in a cartoon?

    Now, where does “that” come from, you might ask? The one and only God. So relax. Live life. Love your neighbor as yourself. Forget the petty bickerings. Most importantly of all, love the LORD your God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength. This will give you a very good day. 🙂

    OTB: (For my NY friends, this does not mean Off Track Betting! lol) I have chosen to open this post to trackbacks today. If you have a post you would like to share with others, please feel free to post a trackback. NO PORN. You would think I would not have to say this, but some people have a lot of nerve. Especially around any and all things religious.

    While you are here, I also some posts from CENTCOM which are pretty encouraging. You will not read about such things in the dinosaur media, so just click on the ‘home’ button at the bottom of this post. Have a very blessed day.

    Happy Father’s Day!

    To all the men who’ve taken their job seriously, God bless you. I pray you have a very Happy Father’s Day. For all the men who have been prevented from that great gift, either by the woman not allowing you to a Father or abortion, my heart still goes to you. I just wish you would have tried harder.

    I can hear the outcries! Check yourself. Was it because you tired of trying? Did you think it would be better for your child? YOU WERE WRONG! But we all make mistakes. I should know! Happy Sperm Donor’s Day to you.

    If you have not been a Father to your children, you do not receive the mantle of Father. Not in my book.

    To the men who stood up to the plate, you are the true heroes to your children. Now you have to check deep in your heart to find out whether or not you have been influenced by societal restraints or led your children in the ways of the Lord? Teaching your children that there is right and wrong and what the differences are. (You can do this whether you have a religion or not.)

    I pray for all men today, that they are appreciated all year long and not just on this day. I pray all men would step up to the plate and be the men they are supposed to be. I pray, also, that the men of today would remember the Lord.

    For those of you who do not like my prayers, DO NOT READ MY SITE! It’s that simple. I’m a Christian woman, and we are lacking Christian men. Oh, there are many men out there, but they have lost their way. Womens’ Lib, political correctness, women lieing, courts believing all women and no men, etc. These men have been attacked and beaten down. They need someone to stand up with them not for them.

    Women, love your husband. Husbands, love your wife. Period. God bless you all.
