"Ain't No Bird!"

"Ain't no bird 
gonna sing in my place.
As long as I'm alive
I'll glorify His Holy Name!"

My Jesus, Please...

My Jesus, please abide in me
reside in me, preside in me.
Let your Spirit be on-guard, 
ever at Home in me.

Yes, temptation comes, 
sometimes it stays.
Yet, You're my way out --
King of all my days.

I dare not quench
my highest Love.
Strengthen me within
'til I'm with You, Above.

The Answer = Jesus

In spite of his season of physical suffering, my Dad, Capt. Billy, is having one of his better days today. We shared a wonderful time of witnessing to one another on the phone this morning. We cried beautiful long-distance tears. Even Mom joined in. It was such a glorious season of stillness for our souls.

Dad said, "Kerry, I can't get that song, 'Jesus is the Answer', off my mind. You should get on that YouTube thing you have, find it, and listen to it."

Well, I will honor my Dad's request even now. Here's the link to Andre Crouch's classic song:

Indeed, "Jesus is the Answer. Now what was the question?"

Work for the Night is Coming


Work, for the night is coming,
Work through the morning hours;
Work while the dew is sparkling,
Work ’mid springing flowers;
Work when the day grows brighter,
Work in the glowing sun;
Work, for the night is coming,
When man’s work is done.
Work, for the night is coming,
Work through the sunny noon;
Fill brightest hours with labor,
Rest comes sure and soon.
Give every flying minute,
Something to keep in store;
Work, for the night is coming,
When man works no more.
Work, for the night is coming,
Under the sunset skies;
While their bright tints are glowing,
Work, for daylight flies.
Work till the last beam fadeth,
Fadeth to shine no more;
Work, while the night is darkening,
When man’s work is o’er.

Be The Pilot of My Life, My Jesus

Thank You, My LORD, for the vision you gave to me as I prayed this morning. 

In my pleading, I asked for -- and could see in my mind's eye -- You in the wheelhouse of my existence confidently and faithfully piloting my life. 

With one of Your nail-scared hands on the throttle and Your other nail-scared hand at the ship's wheel, I trust You even now to guide me in the direction of Your own choosing and at the speed you know is best. 

In Your Name, I say, "so be it until my last voyage ends in Victory. Yes, Amen."

"Dearest My Savior And Lord..."

Dearest my Savior and Lord -- Jesus:

Help me to Love You the way You deserve to be Loved. Take my whole life and get glory for Youself. 

Your Name is Wonderful and You are my Life, my Hope, my Everything. Live Your desires through me, I pray. 

I want to inhale and exhale Your Sweet Holy Spirit all of my days and nights. In every encounter of my Life, allow me to clearly recognize Your Presence and let others always undeniably see You, my King, reigning within me. 

Jesus, You alone are my Inspiration at all times and in all things. Apart from You I can do nothing that ultimately matters. I want and need Your Never-ending Embrace and Amazing Grace. 

I love You, Jesus. And I pray in Ypur Name. Amen.

Ready?

Ready to go, ready to stay
Ready for God to have His way

He is worthy, He is Love
He's here below and up above

To know Him is to love Him
To know Him is to turn from sin

When He comes to take His bride away
Will you be ready? How about today?

Grateful
