Leaving It All With Jesus

My heart has come to the place of rest, leaving it all with Jesus;  The fear of death doth no more molest, I’m leaving it all with Jesus.

I’ve bro’t the guilt of my weary soul, leaving it all with Jesus;  I’ve bro’t not part of it, but the whole, I’m leaving it all with Jesus.

I’m walking safe in a path unknown, leaving it all with Jesus;  I find the path with His blessings strown, I’m leaving it all with Jesus.

O wounded soul, here is heav’nly balm, leaving it all with Jesus;  Then change thy moan to a joyous psalm, in leaving it all with Jesus.

Chorus:  Leaving it all with Jesus, leaving it all with Jesus;  My peace today, as on yesterday, is leaving it all with Jesus.

These High, Green Hills – Mitford #3 {book review}

Since my review of the first book in Jan Karon’s Mitford Series, At Home in Mitford, many of you have told me this is your favorite series.  After reading book two, A Light in the Window, and three, These High, Green Hills, I think I may be joining your ranks!  Here is my book review posted on Goodreads.

These High, Green Hills

These High, Green HillsThese High, Green Hills by Jan Karon

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Library copy. Third in the Mitford series.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading These High, Green Hills. I love where the title comes into the story, just once I believe, near the end, although it is no secret. It is amazing that the reader can come to know so many varied characters so well in the course of reading this author’s books. I love the consistent viewpoint of Father Tim. And I love not having to read first person in order to have it so.

One might assume that this is light reading. It is not. There is depth to it, as much as the reader will receive. This book is loaded with relationships of the true kind. It deals with death, homelessness, domestic abuse, physical trauma, retirement, and love, among other things. Summarizing it does not do it justice. You just have to read it.

The cave experience was paramount, as was the funeral (preparation). Those moments in a book when the pov character changes, when the reader can understand how to effect this by being in the pov’s shoes, are priceless. This book has any number of those moments.

I love the way a new character was brought into the story as one main character passed into the presence of her Lord and Saviour. I love the relationships with people, and especially those with Jesus Christ.

This book is a gold field waiting to be mined by the reader. I highly recommend it to all, especially those interested in what really matters in life. Come to Mitford and meet Timothy, Cynthia, Dooley, Sissy and Sassy, Buck Leeper, Barnabus, Uncle Billy Watson, and a host of other small town folk. It will do your heart good.

heart hiding, Scripture Memorization

Be not Unequally Yoked {heart hiding 15/6}

Be not Unequally Yoked {heart hiding 15/6}.  Immediately upon telling the Corinthian believers to have more love for others, he tells them not to bind themselves in relationship with unbelievers.

Heart Hiding is hiding God’s Word in our heart by memorizing whole books of Scripture.  To read more go to the Heart Hiding page.

This is Week 6 of Heart Hiding, memorizing 2 Corinthians 6-10,

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers:  for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness?  and what communion hath light with darkness?

And what concord hath Christ with Belial?  or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

2 Corinthians 6:14-15

Did you notice what is missing?  Every week we must remember to review the previous weeks’ verses :-)

Review 2 Corinthians 6:1-13.

Have a great week working on these verses.  See you next Sunday.  God bless.
