His Love Endures Forever

20160514_175817

“Accompanied by trumpets, cymbals and other instruments,

they raised their voices in praise to the Lord and sang,

‘He is good, his love endures forever.’

Then the temple of the Lord was filled

with a cloud, and the priests could not perform

their service because of the cloud,

for the glory of the Lord

filled the temple

of God.”

 

2 Chronicles 5: 13b, 14

You Have Never Disappointed Me

100_1457

In the early summer, you have never disappointed me Lord God

I can always see you your face, in the light sparkling,

on top of the ocean. And I can feel your presence

so close, in the coolness of the deep woods.

Most of all I love to pray with you next to me,

with the sun on my face, outside.

God’s Love

20170503_163307

“Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.

No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another,

God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.”

I John 4: 11,12

The Old Testament – Our Roots

100_1292

“Your word, O Lord, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens.”

Psalm 119:89

   

As you know I have named this site after following the Psalms. I also quote a great deal from Proverbs, and from other places in the Bible, including once in a while, a quote from the New Testament. But why? There are several reasons.

First there are a great many sites that are much more Christian than my own. The Gospel is presented in so many beautiful ways. I wanted this one to be different, and to dig a little deeper into our roots.

When Jesus quoted Scriptures, he quoted from scrolls that we now call the Old Testament, including from the Psalms. I think it’s a shame that some, without realizing it, simply disregard, or mentally throw away, this portion of Scriptures.

And I’m not good at ministering to Christians, I don’t think I ever have been. I do know that the Psalms have a special place in the hearts of many different kinds of people. Jews, Sikhs, Muslims, and people with no faith love the Psalms, and the wisdom of Proverbs.

So those are the reasons this site is unique.

Thank you for reading!
