A couple of testimonies. ENJOY!

A couple of testimonies for you to enjoy – one to watch and one to read!  These are testimonies that have stood the test of time. I have a sort of unspoken principle that it is good to wait for a while before sharing a testimony. I am not sure I have any biblical backing for that, but experience tells me it is not always the best thing to placard soemone’s testimony all over the place right away. It sometimes puts a pressure or an expectation on them that they don’t handle well. I have seen too many people held up as examples of salvation who a year or two down the line are nowhere to be seen,  who may indeed no longer be living for the Lord at all, so that is why I am cautious about the sharing of testimonies. Time shows the genuineness of some things and some genuine plantings of the Lord need time to grow and become established; Paul had some hidden time in Arabia remember.

Andy’s and Jackie’s stories are testimony to the fact that Jesus revelation of His Father’s love and the nearness of His Kingdom’s power and presence was not just for people “then” but  for people “now.” In the precious Name of  Jesus Christ there is real help and real love from a real God for real people with real needs. Hallelujah!

I hope you were as blessed as I was when I watched and read all of this today. If you have been, or even if you haven’t been, here are the words of an old song I remember hearing in my Granny’s house! It was sung by Jim Reeves!! Cheesy? Yes. Sentimental? Undoubtedly… but just because something is cheesy or sentimental does not mean it isn’t wonderfully God honouring, Christ exalting, hope producing and true! The Christian scene is in danger of becoming too cynical and “cool” these days, well that’s what I think anyway, and it’s my blog! So especially for the cynical and cool, the slick and the sophisticated… may you find  your toes uncurl, your fingers unclench…

The chimes of time ring out the news, another day is through
Someone slipped and fell, was that someone you?
You may have longed for added strength your courage to renew
Do not be disheartened, I have news for you

It is no secret what God can do
What he’s done for others he’ll do for you
With arms wide open, he’ll pardon you
It is no secret what God can do

There is no night for in his light you’ll never walk alone
You’ll always feel at home, wherever you may roam
There is no power can conquer you while God is on your side
Take him at his promise, don’t run away and hide

It is no secret what God can do
What he’s done for others he’ll do for you
With arms wide open he’ll pardon you
It is no secret what God can do

God Bless
