What is your chief complaint?

Hark, my soul, it is the Lord!
’Tis thy Saviour, hear His Word;
Jesus speaks, and speaks to thee,
Say, poor, sinner, lovest thou Me?

“I delivered thee when bound,
And, when bleeding, healed thy wound;
Sought thee wandering, set thee right,
Turned thy darkness into light.

“Can a woman’s tender care
Cease toward the child she bare?
Yes, she may forgetful be,
Yet will I remember thee.

“Mine is an unchanging love,
Higher than the heights above,
Deeper than the depths beneath,
Free and faithful, strong as death.

Thou shalt see My glory soon,
When the work of grace is done;
Partner of My throne shalt be:
Say, poor sinner, lovest thou Me?

Lord, it is my chief complaint
That my love is weak and faint;
Yet I love Thee, and adore:
O for grace to love Thee more!

William Cowper

    Dear Kenny

    Before the post opened up and I could see what was there I was thinking what my response would me and I I said to myself – without having seen it (I promise) that I don’t love him and know him well enough!

    So passed that one – this time!!!

    Love, Paul


  2. Dear Kenny, I’m not the commenting type, but today I would like to say that I love your words so much! So glad to hear you are considering preaching again, hopefully full length. Your blog post on the bleating sheep was so right on for me, it is so simple and such truth and I will remember this! (I heard you talk about it in a sermon once and understood bleeding sheep, just the usual lost in translation German person). Oh and since I am at it, I can’t find your sermon on prophetic dreams and your colour coding any more. I bought myself a little note book for my night stand to write in and I am paying attention now, any chance you might explain it once more? Thanks, love from Germany, Petra

      So good to hear from you Petra. It gives me the opportunity to say thanks for your generosity and encouragement – so so kind. Do you know when I preached that sermon on prophetic dreams, or was it a blog? If you can give me any leads I will see what I can do… Kenny
