A Peek Inside the Parsonage

I’m busy in the parsonage today packing my suitcase to head to Nova Scotia, Canada.  I will be speaking this weekend at Forest Glen Bible Camp at their Ladies’ Retreat!  How unworthy I am for such a rich privilege, but so thankful for the opportunity!  The Lord is so gracious to allow me to serve Him.

I’m flying out very early Thursday morning; my plane leaves at 5:30, so that means I have to be at the airport at 4:30, and must leave home by 3:30 A.M.!  Yikes.  I should’ve gone to bed on Monday and just stayed there!  =) 

How I covet your prayers for me.  Would you pray for…

  • opportunities to witness on the planes
  • easy connections in Charlotte and Newark
  • safety
  •  the women attending to have open hearts to receive theWord
  • clarity of thought and speech as I speak
  • physical strength and freedom from migraines

Thank you so much!  I will tell you all about it when I return!

  1. A prayer for you:

    O God, Thou art very great,
    My lot is to approach thee with Godly fear and humble confidence,
    for thy condescension equals thy grandeur,
    and thy goodness is thy glory.

    I am unworthy, but thou dost welcome;
    guilty, but thou art merciful;
    poor, but thy riches are unsearchable.

    Thou hast shown boundless compassion towards me
    by not sparing thy son,
    and by giving me freely all things in him;
    This is the foundation of my hope,
    the refuge of my safety,
    the new and living way to thee,
    the means of that conviction of sin,
    brokenness of heart, and self-despair,
    which will endear me to the gospel.

    Happy are they who are Christ’s
    in him at peace with thee,
    justified from all things,
    delivered from coming wrath,
    made heirs of future glory;

    Give me such deadness to the world,
    such love to the Saviour,
    such attachment to his house,
    such devotedness to his service,
    as proves me a subject of his salvation.

    May every part of my character and conduct
    make a serious and amiable impression on others,
    and impel them to ask the way to the Master.

    Let no incident of life, pleasing or painful,
    injure the prosperity of my soul,
    but rather increase it.

    Send me thy help,
    for thine appointments are not meant
    to make me independent of thee,
    and the best means will be vain
    without super-added blessings.

    Thank you for your witness,
