1 Peter 3:3-4

“3 Do not let your adorning be external-the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear-
4 but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.”

Lyrics

I love hymns.

I really do.

I’m going to post some sections of some songs I love below.

“We read thee best in Him who came
To bear for us the cross of shame;
Sent by the Father from on high,
Our life to live, our death to die.

We read thy power to bless and save,
E’en in the darkness of the grave;
Still more in resurrection light,
We read the fullness of thy might.

O love of God, our shield and stay
Through all the perils of our way!
Eternal love, in thee we rest
Forever safe, forever blest.”

“Behold the Man upon a cross,

My sin upon His shoulders

Ashamed I hear my mocking voice,
Call out among the scoffers

It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I know that it is finished”

“Merciful God, O abounding in love,
Faithful to keep us from falling;
Guiding our ways with Your fatherly heart,
Growing our faith with each testing.
God speed the day struggles will end;
Faultless we’ll gaze on Your glory.
Then we will stand overwhelmed by the mercy of God.”

"No condemnation now I dread; 
	Jesus, and all in him, is mine; 
	alive in him, my living Head, 
	and clothed in righteousness divine, 
	bold I approach th' eternal throne, 
	and claim the crown, through Christ my own. 
	Bold I approach th' eternal throne, 
	and claim the crown, through Christ my own."

"Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small;
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all."

 

These sections are just a few of the many songs I love.

 

What are your favorite songs?

Awkward and Awesome Friday, 11/16/2012

Awkward:

  • Having the cleaners guy remember you singing… M
  • Not having enough awkward things… M, K, AE
  • Being tired, thus yawning during church, and afterwards, people coming up to you and saying, “You were really touched by the sermon, weren’t you?” AE

 

Awesome:

  • Hot apple juice to soothe your sore throat. AE
  • The cold weather. AE
  • Thanksgiving. M
  • Homemade snickerdoodles. AE
  • Having more awesome things than awkward things (for a change. 🙂 ) M, K, AE

What was awkward and awesome about your week?
