Lenten Reflections – week 4

March 20, 2017 Today’s song is a musical setting of the Prayer of St. Teresa: Let nothing disturb you, nothing distress you. While all things fade away, God is unchanging. Be patient, for with God in your heart, nothing is lacking. God is enough. To listen to the song, click the link, then select “Prayer of St. Teresa,” the fourth track in the song list. The song was used in today’s Pray-As-You-Go devotional, and I strongly encourage you to take the 12+ minutes to listen to the full devotional, which includes a reading from Matthew 1:18-21, 24a. #Lent2017 #EncourageYourselfInTheLord #BeEncouraged Read More

Lenten Reflections – week 3

  March 13, 2017 The mystery/complicated nature of “already/not yet” allows me to prepare for the death/burial/resurrection of Christ while also being confident that He has already conquered the enemy. It’s the victory that I often need to grab hold of during times storms or times of uncertainty… #Lent2017 #EncourageYourselfInTheLord #BeEncouraged March 14, 2017 I can’t deny my southern/country roots! While I was cooking breakfast, this is the song that “dropped in my spirit,” as the old saints might say! 🙂 When going through tough times, it helps to remember the times that God brought you out! #Lent2017 #EncourageYourselfInTheLord #BeEncouraged#WeDontNeedNoMusic Read More

Lenten Reflections – week 2

March 6, 2017 “In God alone is my soul at rest. He alone is my rock, my strength.” In your times of trouble, may you find rest and strength, in God, our rock. To hear this song, click the link, then select “In God Alone,” the first track in the song list. By the way, I discovered this song while using the Pray-As-You-Go website’s daily devotionals (it was used for a January devotional). #Lent2017 #EncourageYourselfInTheLord #BeEncouraged http://www.kevinmayhew.com/light-in-our-darkness-cd.html#.WL1kuDvyvb2 March 7, 2017 “If I had everything that I could ever ask for, but I didn’t have you, then I’d have nothing…nothing without Read More

Lenten Reflections – week 1

Those of you following my page on Facebook know that I’m engaging in a “nontraditional” Lenten practice of encouraging myself in the Lord. However, I recognize that there are people whose Lenten practice includes giving up social media. I know a few who also follow me and have shared that they enjoy the things I share. So this is for them/you. At the end of each week of Lent, I’ll post a summary of the Facebook posts, so you all can be engaged as well. March 1, 2017 Yesterday, I mentioned that I was attempting to take on a bit Read More
