The words to a children’s song, “Only a Boy Named David” (Words property of Salvation Army, London, England) are inspirational and uplifting.
Only a boy named David, only a little sling.
Only a boy named David, but he could pray and sing.
Only a boy named David, only a rippling brook,
Only a boy named David, but five little stones he took.
And one little stone went in – to the sling, and the s…ling went ’round and ’round;
And one little stone went up in the air —
And the giant came tumbling down!

The children’s choir teachers taught our children the song with motions depicting the actions described in the words. Many giants are in our presnt day world. Christians, rise up and face the giants, God is greater and ever faithful!
I would rather see a sermon
Than hear one any day,
I would rather one walk with me
Than merely tell the way.
By Edgar Guest
Lord, let my walk be a sermon.
Title of song: “Joshua fought the battle of Jericho” The words set to the music begin as follows:…..”Joshua fought the battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho. Joshua fought the battle of Jericho and the walls came a tumbling down….” The words describe a wall that came down as a result of obedience to God‘s instructions to Joshua, the leader of God’s people. The “walls” in our lives today do not always “tumble-down” in like manner. Be strong, God’s promises to HIS people are true today, HE overcomes evil. (Joshua 6)
MEN MAY MISJUDGE THY AIM,
THINK THEY HAVE CAUSE TO BLAME,
SAY, THOU ART WRONG:
KEEP ON THY QUIET WAY,
CHRIST IS THE JUDGE, NOT THEY,
FEAR NOT, BE STRONG.
St. Paul said, “None of these things move me.”
He did not say, none of these things hurt me. It is one thing to be hurt, and quite another to be moved. St. Paul had a very tender heart. We do not read of any apostle who cried as St. Paul did. It takes a strong man to cry. Jesus wept, say, none of these things hurt me. But the apostle had determined not to move from what he believed was right. He did not count as we are apt to count; he did not care for ease; he did not care for his mortal life. He cared for only one thing and that was to be loyal to Christ, to have HIS smile. To St. Paul, more than to any other man, HIS work was wages, HIS smile was Heaven.
This is my quest and my personal stand. Quoted from the Bible (Judeo-Christian Bible): “Be Still and KNOW that I AM GOD!”
“HELLO WORLD,” is my first post on WordPress.com. HELLO WORLD, I say “HELLO!” All is well in our world as GOD IS IN CONTROL! Windows Live and WordPress.com are a real trip, so to speak, but check out my profile with updates! Now in count down mode to midnight December 31 and voila, “HAPPY NEW YEAR-2011” TO ALL! The new year will be the best year yet, God never fails, wait and see, the best year is ahead!
