Diana Leagh Matthews: "The inspiration for this song came from a 1977 vacation to Great Britain. Rev. Hayford and his wife were touched by the symbols of royalty while traveling through England, Scotland and Wales.
The song was written by Jack William Hayford, who is a pastor. Rev. Hayford is said to have composed over 400 songs, hymns and musical works.

I have a desire to worship You, too.
May my songs bless You, and may my
heart rejoice daily over Your goodness.
Increase my faith, to where I can
believe You in what seems some
I love Your salvation in and through
May my life be a reflection of You,
and may I worship with my spirit and
in the honesty of my heart.
I ask this in Jesus' Name.
Today’s Bible verses: Ps. 40:16 "Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee; let such as love thy salvation say continually, the LORD be magnified."
Heb. 11:6 "But without faith it is impossible to please him; for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him."
Some thoughts today: When you concentrate on what the Lord has promised you, you'll know the spirit of victory, even though what you see and hear do not reveal it yet. That's what the Bible refers to as faith: Hebrews 11:1 "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."
Today’s quote: Larry Crabb - "But the bigger battle involves my relationship with God. Do I trust him to continue working in my life even when I am plagued by crippling emotions? Do I know him well enough to turn to him for comfort rather than demand relief from my pain through whatever means are available? Do I love him so deeply that I welcome additional suffering that might draw my soul closer to him. Will I pay any price to know him well?" (Taken from p. 150 of CONNECTING, A Radical New Vision)
Please check out Samples of Jean's Crafts to see the framed Real Flower arrangements at the The TAUNY Center in Canton. They are presently show-casing local artist's work. This is a special time of the year when artists are invited to bring their larger works in. I'm honored to have been judged and accepted! I was told they've sold two of mine already!

A popular post: That's Jesus! Dave Branon shares with us, "As a Jewish kid growing up in New York, Michael Brown had no interest in spiritual things. His life revolved around being a drummer for a band, and he got mixed up with drugs. But then some friends invited him to church..."
