If any one can find who wrote the song Hold Me Up, I’d love to know, I know the camera man on Whispering Bill’s Family reunion was the one who wrote it and several others for Gordon Mote and others. Just didn’t catch his name, but he is a fine singer on his own.

Stick Together

April 14, 2012

For years, scientists have wondered how fire ants, whose bodies are denser than water, can survive floods that should destroy them. How do entire colonies form themselves into life rafts that can float for weeks? A Los Angeles Times article explained that engineers from the Georgia Institute of Technology discovered that tiny hairs on the ants’ bodies trap air bubbles. This enables thousands of the insects, “which flounder and struggle in the water as individuals,” to ride out the flood when they cling together.

The New Testament speaks often of our need to be connected to other followers of Christ in order to survive and grow spiritually. In Ephesians 4, Paul wrote, “We should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine.” He added, “But, speaking the truth in love, may [we] grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ—from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love” (vv.14-16).

Alone, we sink; but clinging and growing together in the Lord, we can ride out every storm.

Let’s stick together!

We can’t avoid the tossing storms of life,
And we survive while carried to and fro;
We’ll stick together as we face the strife,
And in God’s strength the victory we shall know. —Hess
Christians stand strong when they stand together.

Read: Ephesians 4:1-16

The whole body, joined and knit together . . . , causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love. —Ephesians 4:16
Bible in a Year:
1 Chronicles 1-3

~Welcome To Sunday At Amy's Place~

Sts Cyril and Methodius Church Dubina, Tx
*****
Matthew 6:28-30 (NKJV)
28. “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field,
how they grow: they neither toil nor spin;
29. and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed
like one of these.
30. Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and......... tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you,
O you of little faith?

Stop And See

April 15, 2012

When my ophthalmologist says, “Be still,” I am still. I don’t argue. I don’t become defiant. I don’t stay busy behind his back. Why? Because he is a renowned eye surgeon who is trying to preserve my sight, and he needs my cooperation. I would be foolish to ignore his instructions.

So why am I not as cooperative in matters of spiritual stillness? God considers rest so important that He built it into the rhythm of life. Without rest we can’t see clearly; we begin to see ourselves as more important than we are.

After Elijah’s stressful confrontation with Ahab and Jezebel, he ran himself into a state of exhaustion. God sent an angel to care for him. During a time of stillness, “the word of the Lord came to him” (1 Kings 19:9). Elijah thought he alone was doing God’s work. He had been so zealous that he didn’t know that 7,000 others hadn’t bowed to Baal (v.18).

Some of us may fear what will happen if we sit still and stop working. But something worse happens when we refuse to rest. Without rest we cannot be spiritually or physically healthy. God heals while we rest.

Just as I needed stillness so that my eye could heal, we all need stillness so that God can keep our spiritual vision clear.

Christ never asks of us such busy labor
That leaves no time for resting at His feet.
The waiting attitude of expectation,
He often counts a service most complete. —Anon.
Our greatest strength may be our ability
to stand still and trust God.

Read: 1 Kings 19:1-12

Be still, and know that I am God. —Psalm 46:10
Bible in a Year:
1 Chronicles 4-6
