My Fountain

Come, Thou Fountof Every Blessing Come, thou Fount of every blessing,
Tune my heart to sing thy grace;
Streams of mercy, never ceasing,
Call for songs of loudest praise.
Teach me ever to adore Thee,
May I still Thy goodness prove,
While the hope of endless glory
Fills my heart with joy and love.
Here I raise mine Ebenezer;
Hither by thy help I’ve come;
And I hope, by thy good pleasure,
Safely to arrive at home.
Jesus sought me when a stranger,
Wandering from the fold of God;
He, to rescue me from danger,
Interposed his precious blood.
O, to grace how great a debtor
Daily I’m constrained to be!
Let thy goodness, like a fetter,
Bind me closer still to thee.
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here’s my heart–O, take and seal it,
Seal it for thy courts above

Invisible Senses

Does God have a sense of humor?   Is humor Godly or ungodly?

Why do we laugh and find things, situations, statements funny/humorous to the point that it propels us to laugh or giggle?

It's interesting that we are told that we have five senses: Hear, Touch, Smell, Taste and Vision which all function from the various physical organs created to support their specific purpose.

There is no organ per se that is made to specifically make us laugh.  Apart from our physical senses that are triggered by physical organs, we have spiritual senses that are triggered by innate spiritual spirits. 

For example, the spirit of discernment, humility, peace, joy, forgiveness, kindness.... but do they operate automatically like our physical senses?  What do you think?

Somehow I think these spiritual senses are developed purposefully rather than automatically because of our sinful nature. Because of sin (living selfishly, disobedience, pride etc.)  these senses are weakened and if not purposefully nur…

We The People.....One Love

"Out of many one people" is the Jamaican motto.  The fact is that Jamaican people are made up of a variety of ethnic descents. The majority of Jamaicans though are in fact from West African ancestry.  The historical accounts of how Jamaicans gained freedom from slavery is awesome and testifies to the general warrior and sometimes rebellious determined spirit many carry with them today.

Other demographics of Jamaicans are from the following descents Indian, Chinese, German, Jewish and European and there are a lot of Jamaicans who's heritage is a mixture from some or all of these categories. Because we don't have an ethnic/tribalism culture, as irrespective of the ethnic genealogy, the common culture is the same. As a result, there are a lot of mixed raced relationships/marriages that produces mixed offspring.

The Motto Out of Many One people aptly fits the description of Jamaicans because from my view and experience we live, eat, talk, and experience life generally th…

My Story-My Song

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
O what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
born of his Spirit, washed in his blood. This is my story, this is my song,
praising my Savior all the day long;
this is my story, this is my song,
praising my Savior all the day long
.

Perfect submission, perfect delight,
visions of rapture now burst on my sight;
angels descending bring from above
echoes of mercy, whispers of love.
This is my story, this is my song,
praising my Savior all the day long;
this is my story, this is my song,
praising my Savior all the day long
.

Perfect submission, all is at rest;
I in my Savior am happy and blest,
watching and waiting, looking above,
filled with his goodness, lost in his love
