By Request, ‘One Day at a Time’

Our friend in Scotland, Ina, asked for this worship song–One Day at a Time, sung by Lena Martell (a No. 1 hit in 1979, by Kris Kristofferson).

I’ll have at least one more hymn for you today, so don’t go away–and an Oy, Rodney episode because a good laugh is the gift of God and we proclaim the sabbath by throttling back on the nooze. (If your sabbath was yesterday, we throttled back then, too.)

By Request, ‘I Asked the Lord’

I’ve been awfully busy today, and I almost forgot this hymn request from Erlene–I Asked the Lord, by Carroll Roberson. Well, better late than never!

By the way, none of the hymns in our hymn contest so far has gotten as much as 20 views in one day. Let’s do better than that! Maybe tomorrow…

By Request, ‘I’m Going Free’

SlimJim requested this–I’m Going Free by Vertical Worship. It’s wild, it’s a blast, and it’s come along just when we need it.

If the bad guys could see more of us doing more of us, maybe they’d be the ones who are losing heart!

By Request, ‘Is He Worthy?’

Requested by Susan, this gorgeous hymn by Chris Tomlin, Is He Worthy? I think we already know the answer to that question! And the beautiful photograph moved me close to tears.

If there is this much beauty left in a fallen world marred and polluted by sin–whatever will the restored Creation be like?

By Request, ‘A Moment of Time’

And let’s start today’s blogging with a hymn requested by Erlene–In a Moment of Time, by Carroll Roberson.


‘My Worth Is Not in What I Own’

Written by Keith and Kristyn Getty, we have My Worth Is Not In What I Own as a solo by Lindsay Kirkland, “Sounds Like Reign.”

You’d think the lesson would be obvious. But has it ever been?

By Request, ‘Oh, Happy Day’

Requested by Susan–Korean Soul singing Oh, Happy Day. They’ve got their American accents down pat, both singing and talking.

And there are, by the way, a lot of Christians in South Korea–part of our family.

By Request, ‘Blessed Are Those Who’ve Never Seen’

Requested by Erlene, we have Blessed Are Those Who’ve Never Seen, sung by Carroll Roberson.

Thomas the Apostle believed Jesus after he saw His wounds; but Jesus used the occasion to bless those who would never see Him–and would still believe in Him.

By Request, ‘My Jesus’

Pastor “SlimJim” requested this one–My Jesus, by Anne Wilson.

There is nothing that hurts us more than the death of a loved one, no pain worse than that. It’s something pastors are called upon to deal with–still think it’s an easy job?

We could not live, but for the Holy Spirit, God’s word, and Jesus Christ our Savior.

By Request, ‘Sheltered in the Arms of God’

Requested by Erlene, Sheltered in the Arms of God, sung by Carroll Roberson.

I almost didn’t recognize him at first, he’s so young in that picture. Well, even I was young once.
