Onward Christian Soldiers

Many people woke up this morning with different feelings about what is going on in this world. I struggled with voting at all, although I did. Now that all is said and done may people are saying God is still on his throne, but do they really believe that? HE IS!!!!! Hallelujah that we can count on that....

I still love the verse "As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord"...and that cannot be changed, even with whatever is happening outside of this house. I will try to raise my children to be soldiers for God and to proclaim the Good News..even in the face of immorality. I still have a choice. I can still chose to raise my children and my household up to know God, try to live my life as an example to others and get rid of things that would hinder that.

I say Onward Christian Soldiers...don't be frightened by what may be happening in our world...your destiny is ultimately heaven...this is not our home!

Pray for our world leaders as you should and lead your families so that they may be able to make the right choices in the face of decisions possibly made by those leaders.

Blessings to all...

Be Still My Soul

1. Be still, my soul; the Lord is on thy side;
Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain;
Leave to thy God to order and provide;
In every change He faithful will remain.
Be still, my soul; thy best, thy heavenly, Friend
Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.

2. Be still, my soul; thy God doth undertake
To guide the future as He has the past.
Thy hope, thy confidence, let nothing shake;
All now mysterious shall be bright at last.
Be still, my soul; the waves and winds still know
His voice who ruled them while He dwelt below.

3. Be still, my soul, though dearest friends depart
And all is darkened in the vale of tears;
Then shalt thou better know His love, His heart,
Who comes to soothe thy sorrows and thy fears.
Be still, my soul; thy Jesus can repay
From His own fulness all He takes away.

4. Be still, my soul; the hour is hastening on
When we shall be forever with the Lord,
When disappointment, grief, and fear are gone,
Sorrow forgot, love's purest joys restored.
Be still, my soul; when change and tears are past,
All safe and blessed we shall meet at last.
Pin It!
