An old hymn

I hadn't heard this hymn in a long time, but it was an encouragement to me as I was listening to a sermon that it was quoted in. A reminder that storms are no accident in our lives...the Lord is in control, and what a comfort that is. 

For He commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, 
which lifteth up the waves thereof.
 -Psalms 107:25

Jesus, Saviour, pilot me, 
Over life's tempestuous seas. 
Unknown waves before me roll,
Hiding rock and treach'rous shoal;
Chart and compass come from Thee:
Jesus, Saviour, pilot me!

As a mother stills her child, 
Thou canst hush the ocean wild;
Boist'rous waves obey Thy will
When Thou say'st to them, "Be still!"
Wondrous Sov'reign of the sea,
Jesus, Saviour, pilot me!

When at last I near the shore, 
And the fearful breakers roar
'Twixt me and the peaceful rest, 
Then, while leaning on Thy breast,
May I hear Thee say to me, 
"Fear not, I will pilot thee!" 

Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and He bringeth them out of their distresses.

  He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.

Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.

Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! 
-Psalms 107:28-31

A Quick Post


"For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also." -Matthew 6:21

A friend of mine had shared this quote awhile back, and it really made me stop and think. I thought I'd share it here also.  
I'm sorry, everyone, for my lack of posts lately! My main problem was that my phone would not upload images, except on very rare occasions after trying over and over. I had such trouble with editing posts, that I gave up for awhile. I finally have a laptop again to use, so I hope to be sharing more posts in the near future, Lord willing. For now, I thought I'd make this quick post while I have a few spare moments. :)

 Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.
 -Colossians 4:5

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly,
 nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
  But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
-Psalms 1:1-2

 "Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do,
do all to the glory of God."
 -1 Corinthians 10:31
