James’ Memories

By James Phillips

“They that wait upon the Lord…shall renew their strength…they shall mount up with wings like eagles…they shall run and not be weary…they shall walk and not faint. ..Teach me Lord, Teach me Lord to wait!!”

…this morning this song keeps running through my mind in my Dad’s voice…it’s scripture with a prayer on the end. That’s why I love it so I reckon.

Psalm 23 – Jacob

By Jacob Phillips

“Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me…” (Psalm 23) For those facing the fears and sorrows of death, whether for themselves or for a loved one, this verse is a comforting reminder that The Lord Jesus will keep the souls of those who have trusted in Him safe for all eternity.

Thankful Thoughts From Jonathan

This scripture from the Book of Job has been on my mind a lot lately; “If iniquity be in thine hand, put it far away, and let not wickedness dwell in thy tabernacles…”-11:14 As we head into another year, I’m asking The Lord for the grace to help me deal with some things in my own heart, and help me to let go of things in my own life that He has already shown me are wrong…In the words of King David; “Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of thy name: and deliver us, and purge away our sins, for thy name’s sake.”-Psalm 79:9…So thankful for a Heavenly Father who loves me unconditionally and who has already purchased my eternal redemption through His own blood…So no matter how many times I fall; I know that I’m forgiven…That is love at its best. That is humbling. That is special…Thankful for a lot right now..

Verses From Josiah

As for man, his days are like grass;
As a flower of the field, so he flourishes.
For the wind passes over it, and it is gone,
And its place remembers it no more.[a]
But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting
On those who fear Him…”
”So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.” Psalm 103;15-17& 90:12

A Thought From Jacob

Been looking at Genesis 1-3 a lot lately and thought this was interesting:

The First Adam’s disobedience brought “sorrow”, “sweat”, and “thorns” (Genesis 3:17-19)
The Second Adam’s obedience caused Him to be “a man of sorrows” (Isaiah 53:3), to sweat “great drops of blood” for our sin (Luke 22:44) and to wear a “crown of thorns” (Mark 15:17).

Galatians 3:13 says that Christ “redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us.” He took the Curse upon Himself in order to redeem us from its condemnation. During this season, I hope that you’ll ponder not just the birth of Christ, but also His death and resurrection.
