MY 2016 CHALLENGE 

“TRUE HAPPINESS AND PEACE DO NOT EXIST APART FROM GOD”

Proverbs 9:10   “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.” 

SONG OF PRAYER:

“THE QUIET HOUR: Speak, Lord, in the Stillness” E. May Grimes 1951 Singspiration.

 

2016

As  August  passed,  I began to think of my  annual challenge as I approached 2016.   After praying about it  I have began  a new plan for my Scripture Reading rather than reading through the Bible in a year as I have for longer than I can recall.

I want to spend more time studying God’s Word  and memorizing it rather just trying to get it read, so I have been praying and seeking the Lord for His will for my Bible Study.

I have decided to begin with Ruth and I want to write it out as I read it and begin memorizing it.

I have chosen 2010 motto again….  “True happiness and peace do not exist apart from God”.

Song…. The Quiet Hour,  Speak Lord, In the Stillness.

Grimes/ Alfred B Smith

Speak Lord in the stillness,  While i wait on Thee

Hush’d my heart to listen  in expectancy

Speak, O blessed Master In this quiet hour 

Let me see Thy face, Lord.  Feel thy touch of power

For the words Thou speakest   They are life indeed

Living bread from heaven  Now my spirit feed.

All to Thee is yielded;  I am Thine alone.

Blissful, glad surrender,  I am thine alone.

Fill me with the knowledge;  of Thy glorious will,

All Thine own good pleasure,  In this child fulfill.

Like a watered garden,  full of fragrance rare,

Lingering in thy presence,  Let my life appear.

Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-Control. To these I commit my day. If I succeed, I will give thanks. If I fail, I will seek His grace. And then when this day is done I will place my head on my pillow and rest
