"As I journey through the land, preaching and singing as I go, pointing souls to Calvary, to the crimson flow, many arrows pierce my soul from without, within; but my Lord leads me on, through Him I must win.
When in service for my Lord dark may be the night, but I'll cling more close to Him, He will give me light; Satan's snares may vex my soul, turn my thoughts aside; but my Lord goes ahead, leads whatever betide.
Oh I want to see Him, look upon His face, there to sing forever of His saving grace; on the streets of glory let me lift my voice, cares all past, home at last, ever to rejoice".
How can I keep running the race with these people when I don't know where they could be headed? There again the Lord reminded me of the answer... That I don't need to have it. What I must do, is to ask Him. Ask Him to show me His vision for the people I'm walking with. Pray for them, and surrender them to Him... For they are God's children, not mine, I'm just an instrument.
This year has been a trying year for me. I’ve been dealing with health issues for many months, and it seems like there is no hope. I’ve been preaching and telling people of God’s Goodness and that he will answer prayer and he will see you through. During my life experiences The Lord has brought me from a mighty long way.
He has never failed me, yet there are times I feel discouraged, and my faith is weak, feeling all alone at times and it seems like all hope is gone. Even though I know better, and I know that My God is there for me. Yet I feel like I can’t get well. My heart is heaven ladened at times when my body is in pain and the sleepless nights, etc. I'm so grateful that the Lord spared my life this past September. I had 4 blood clots in my lungs and one of the was so large that it was blocking the blood flow from my heart to my lungs which almost took me out, but God blocked it, he wouldn't let it be so...
Thank You Lord! I thank God for my darling wife who has stuck by me through the ordeals, know that it’s hard on her to take care for me and help me physically really bothers me as a man. I feel like I suppose to take care and protect her and give her a since of security in our marriage.
I really appreciate her. Thank you, Lord! I thank God for the genuine people he placed in my life, Family and real friends. Thanks to those who reached out to us, blessed us and the phone calls and cards I received from some. Most of all I thank you all for your prayers. The Lord has assured me that the burden is not mine to carry... it is Jesus'. With that realization comes a relief, a sense of peace... My friends are in God's hands, just as I am. It brings a willing surrender... a welcome sense of need I feel for my Lord. His yoke is easy, His burden is light. He's full of wisdom, power and might. Lord, this is a declaration of dependence. Jesus, I need You...Jesus, I want You...I am... Captivated...your humble servant...RAC
