The Life That Knows No Failure


Psalm 1:1-3
Blessed is the man that walketh 
not in the counsel of the ungodly, 
    nor standeth in the way of sinners, 
    nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
But his delight is in the law of the LORD; 
     and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, 
    that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; 
    his leaf also shall not wither; 
    and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff

Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment,

For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: 
      but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

Sermon on the Mount
Matt. 7:13
Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, 
and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, 
and many there be which go in thereat: 
Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, 
which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

The Story Behind the Song: Great Is Thy Faithfulness

In 1923, in a desire to express his personal
life experience as a Christian, Thomas Obadiah Chisolm
 penned one of the greatest poems regarding the 
faithfulness of God. 

Chisolm was born in Franklin, KY on
July 29th, 1866 in a log cabin. Without
benefit of proper advanced schooling he 
became a teacher at 16 in the same schoolhouse
he had been taught in as a child. At 21,
 he began a town newspaper and 
six years later under the preaching of 
Dr. H. C. Morrison received the saving knowledge
of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Later in his life he became an ordained minister but had
to resign due to poor health.
He penned over 1200 poems in his career.

In stanza one of this great hymn,
he writes of God's unchanging 
character and unfailing compassions.  
In stanza two, he speaks of God's faithfulness 
in maintaining the order of His universe.  
In stanza three he focuses on God's faithfulness 
in forgiving our sins, providing strength for 
today and hope for tomorrow.  

William M. Runyan set the poem to music in Baldwin, Kansas, USA.

Great Is Thy Faithfulness

Great is Thy faithfulness, O God, my Father,
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions they fail not;
As Thou hast been, Thou forever wilt be.
Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above;
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.
Pardon for sin And a peace that endureth,
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today And bright hope for tomorrow
Blessings all mine, With ten thousand beside.

Great is Thy faithfulness
Great is Thy faithfulness
Morning by morning new mercies I see
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me.

Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle,
and a teacher of the Gentiles. For the which cause I also
suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I 
know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he 
is able to keep that which I have committed unto him 
against that day. Hold fast the form of sound words, 
which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is 
in Christ Jesus.

♦ Song of Solomon 2 ♦
I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.

✍ "God's Garden" ✍
by Robert Frost
God made a beauteous garden
With lovely flowers strown,
But one straight, narrow pathway
That was not overgrown.
And to this beauteous garden
He brought mankind to live,
And said: “To you, my children,
These lovely flowers I give.
Prune ye my vines and fig trees,
With care my flowerets tend,
But keep the pathway open
Your home is at the end.”
Then came another master,
Who did not love mankind,
And planted on the pathway
Gold flowers for them to find.
And mankind saw the bright flowers,
That, glitt’ring in the sun,
Quite hid the thorns of av’rice
That poison blood and bone;
And far off many wandered,
And when life’s night came on,
They still were seeking gold flowers,
Lost, helpless and alone.
O, cease to heed the glamour
That blinds your foolish eyes,
Look upward to the glitter
Of stars in God’s clear skies.
Their ways are pure and harmless
And will not lead astray,
Bid aid your erring footsteps
To keep the narrow way.
And when the sun shines brightly
Tend flowers that God has given
And keep the pathway open
That leads you on to heaven.
