Show Me Your Ways – In Verse

Show me Your ways
When I can’t find their trace
Teach me Your paths
By little steps of grace
And with Your truth
Light corners in my heart
Teach me the faith to bravely make a start
To follow You - the God who cared to save
My soul while I was waiting
Outside the empty grave

Shew me thy ways, O Lord; teach me thy paths. 
Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: 
For thou art the God of my salvation; 
On thee do I wait all the day. 
Psalm 25:4-5 KJV

Spurgeon and the Psalms

Being both a fan of Charles Spurgeon and an avid student of the Psalms; I was delighted to be offered a free copy of Spurgeon and the Psalms as a member of the Bible Gateway Blogger grid community to review. When it arrived in the mail last week, I eagerly unboxed it and was amazed at the beauty of the soft faux leather volume. My first thought as I opened its pages, was that I would find in it a verse-by-verse commentary. Instead, I discovered that, Spurgeon highlights a single short passage from each Psalm, and shares it in a simple straightforward manner. There is no referencing the Hebrew meanings or intricately weaving together how it fits into church doctrine. Spurgeon has instead chosen, to give us a practical insight into how the words of King David, Moses, Solomon and the other ancient writers can help us in our everyday life. Whether you are buying this book as a gift or like myself, would simply love reading it for yourself, you will not be disappointed. If you would like a copy of this wonderful little book, you can find it by following the link below –

Remembering Jesus in Memory Care

One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,
to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple. Psalm 27:4 ESV

My favorite people to sing with are my Thursday morning friends in the memory care wing of Sunshine Christian Home. We had a great group this week and they totally loved singing “Up From the Grave He Arose!” In Psalm 27 David asks the Lord for the right to dwell in the House of the Lord –ALL- the days of his life. All our days includes when we are older, weaker and frail. Even in those years God loves coming alongside and delights in giving us a song! If you have not yet known the blessing of serving in Nursing Home Ministry you are missing out. There is a wonderful connection of the blessing that God wants to pass from one generation to the next! I hope you enjoy hearing their voices as we sing my absolute favorite Easter Hymn. Blessings all!
