God Hath Not Promised

Today’s hymn on the theme of God’s Providence is another amazing poem by Annie Johnson Flint. As noted in an earlier post, she also wrote, “He Giveth More Grace.” The story of Annie’s life portrays the remarkable grace of God despite incredible pain and suffering.

The Perfect Gift

This year once again the retailers are trying their best to lure us into their stores. Flyers by the “stove load” (we have an airtight wood stove) have been filling our local newspaper.

Depressed Hymnwriter

“By Faith….”

“By faith….” introduces most paragraphs in Hebrews 11. This is the realm in which Christ-followers are called to live. “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.” (Heb. 11:6) What will we accomplish for […]
