A Mother’s Day Poem

A mother who always cares, A mother who’s always there. A mother who always prays, A mother who always stays. When things get rough, When life gets tough, When all is just too much to bear, God’s Word she shares. God’s light she shines. So blessed God made this mother...

Seven Rules for Daily Living

by Jonathan Goforth The following rules for daily living were made by Dr. Goforth in 1894 and written on the fly-leaf of his Bible: 1. Seek to give much—expect nothing. 2. Put the very best construction on the actions of others. 3. Never let a day pass without at least...

Willing Captive

Unshackled from sin Imprisoned to praise, I’m sentenced to love Thee For the rest of my days. My heart has been bound With Thy merciful cords. My tongue has been loosed For Thy love songs, oh Lord. No bars, no chains Are required on me, For ’tis my greatest joy...

Just An Ordinary Day

Read Through the Bible

I supposed I knew my Bible, Reading piece-meal, hit or miss; Now a bit of “John” or “Matthew,” Now a snatch of “Genesis.” Certain chapters of “Isaiah,” Certain “Psalms,”—the twenty-third, Twelfth of “Romans,” first of “Proverbs.” Yes, I thought I knew the Word. But I found a thorough reading Was...

A Straying Lamb

The Shepherd loved His little lamb, And gave it His tender care… And followed it with His loving eyes As it wandered here and there. And as He sat by His grazing flock Who so meekly His voice obeyed, He pondered sadly His little lamb As again and again it...

Out Of The Depths

It makes the wounded spirit whole,  And calms the troubled breast;  ‘Tis manna to the hungry soul,  And to the weary rest. Dear Name! the Rock on which I build  My Shield and Hiding-place;  My never-failing Treasury fill’d  With boundless stores of grace. By Thee my prayers acceptance gain,  Although...

One Day At A Time

One day at a time, with its failures and fears, With its hurts and mistakes, with its weakness and tears, With its portion of pain and its burden of care; One day at a time we must meet and must bear. One day at a time to be patient and...

No Will But Thine

Jesus, ’tis my aim divine,  Hence to have no will but thine,  Let me covenant with thee,  Thine for evermore to be:  This my prayer, and this alone,  Saviour, let thy will be done! Thee to love, to live to thee,  This my daily portion be,  Nothing to my Lord...

The Bright Forever

Breaking through the clouds that gather, O’er the Christian’s natal skies, Distant beams, like floods of glory, Fill the soul with glad surprise; And we almost hear the echo Of the pure and holy throng, In the bright, the bright forever, In the summer land of song. Yet a little...
