Since my surgery in January 2015 and Margaret’s surgery in June 2015 brought about some physical adjustments in our life style, we have been praying the Lord would open up a door of service that we could work on from home. We believe this website is an answer to that prayer.
For the past few years, we have made “AMATEUR” CDs for our family in Statesville, shut-ins, and a few other people as a way of sharing God’s love and our love with them.
We have been blessed to have a special friend with a God given musical gift who plays piano for us in addition to using purchased karaoke and accompaniment CDs.
As you listen to these CDs, we hope you will overlook all of our mistakes and hear only the message of each song and devotional. Our only goal is to praise the Lord and tell others about Him.
Reach Out To Jesus
The following is an overview of this Album. We do appreciate your words of encouragement and want to say a special thanks to those who share the site with your friends. For those of you that just happened onto the site, we hope you will take time to see if you agree or disagree with the thoughts expressed.
This month I am using some material from a previous post that seems more relevant today than when I first used them. We begin with some much needed humor of an airline pilot with a seeing eye dog, an employee encountering life after death, and two lawyers who encounter a grandma.
During the last few months there have been many times that we have reached out to Jesus for comfort. (1) We have been saddened and burdened by a number of expected and unexpected deaths of family members and close friends. (2) Many family members and friends of all ages are facing health problems. (3) Nations throughout the world including the United States are experiencing problems. When we reach out to Jesus, we find comfort in the following Bible verses. 1 Peter 5:7 – “Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.” 2 Chronicles 7:14 – “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
2022 has also been a year of reaching out to Jesus for thanks of positive things in our lives. January of 2022 marks 65 years since I reached out to Jesus for salvation in 1957. June 2022 marked 47 years since Margaret & I were married and I became a member of Camp Creek Baptist Church. 16 years ago I had the privilege of serving as worship leader during a transition period between pastors at our church. For the past 6 years I have been blessed to be able to share the gospel of Jesus Christ worldwide on the internet. During that time, this website has been viewed by 8,583 people in 81 countries. I am thankful to have this means of communication because I promised the Lord that I would not zip my lip. I will continue to tell what he has done for me and share His message as long as He allows me to be able to do so.
Please listen to the message in this album. Any person who accepts through FAITH that Jesus came as the Savior of the world, confesses & turns from their sins, and begins to follow the teachings of Jesus found in the Bible can have fellowship with God the Father. Millions of lives have been changed down through the ages by this simple message.
Meditate on the words of the Songs of Inspiration contained in this section and see if you agree that the song writers had met The Living Lord. “God Walks The Dark Hills”, “Ride Out Your Storm”, & “In The Shelter Of His Arms” show God’s protection as we go through difficult times. “Peace In The Valley”, “Farther Along”, “Heaven Will Surely Be Worth It All”, & “Surely The Presence” show promises Christians have to look forward to.”
Psalm 105:4 – “Look to the Lord and His strength; seek His face always.” Reach out to Jesus for comfort and guidance during the bad times and to give thanks for the good times.
