It's Time...

Amen! If you have not already, stop by Emily's blog, and get a reminder that this "life is but a vapor." What are we doing for God right now?

"The clock of life is wound but once
And no one has the power
To tell just when the hands will stop
at late or early hour.."

Youth Bible School

If the photos on PhotoJewels stop, (I'm not even mentioning posts here at S&L, sorry... :-} ) and you are wondering why, I'll be at Bible School for the entire week, and we'll have plenty of 'homework' to do as this year's school involves word studies, case studies, etc. If you feel lead, you can pray that I'd learn the lessons God is wanting to teach me, and that I'd have an open, soft, humble heart....

Thank you, and may God Bless you!

Knowing God...

There are very few believers who have a passion to know God Himself. Most of them seem to be keen only on increasing in Bible-knowledge and on having spectacular emotional experiences.

All this is an indication that we have come to the very last minutes of the last hour of the last days in which Paul said it would be "difficult to be a Christian" (2 Tim.3:1 - Living).  It will be difficult to be a Christian in the last days, not because of persecution or opposition, but because many people would "have a form of godliness without its inner power" (2 Tim.3:5).

-Zac Poonen


"When Jesus comes to reward His servants,
Whether it be noon or night,
Faithful to Him will He find us watching,
With our lamps all trimmed and bright?

  O can we say we are ready, brother?
  Ready for the soul’s bright home?
  Say, will He find you and me still watching,
  Waiting, waiting when the Lord shall come?

If, at the dawn of the early morning,
He shall call us one by one,
When to the Lord we restore our talents,
Will He answer thee—“Well done”?

Have we been true to the trust He left us?
Do we seek to do our best?
If in our hearts there is naught condemns us,
We shall have a glorious rest.

Blessed are those whom the Lord finds watching,
In His glory they shall share;
If He shall come at the dawn or midnight,
Will He find us watching there?"
-Fanny Crosby
