"I have been at the altar and witnessed the Lamb,
Burnt wholly to ashes for me;
And watched its sweet savour ascending on high
Accepted , O Father by Thee.
And lo, while I gazed at the glorious sight
A voice from above reached mine ears:
"By this thine iniquity's taken away,
And no trace of it on thee appears."
"An end of thy sin has been made for thee here,
By Him who its penalty bore;
With blood it is blotted eternally out,
And I will not remember it more."
O Lord, I believe it with wonder and joy;
Confirm Thou this precious belief;
While daily I learn that I am in myself
Of sinners the vilest and chief."
This Thursday Felisol and her family will be laying to rest their dear father, husband and grandfather.
This Thursday my dad will be going to the hospital for a surgery.
Felisol's dad, like Miss Patty mentioned is "absent from the body, present with the Lord and Happy."
Dad Golden is living still but not really LIVING because he is unsaved as of yet.
My prayer for Felisol's precious family is that they will feel the Lord's constant comfort as He is with them.
My prayer for my dad is that he will believe on the Lord for his salvation before it is too late.
I asked Saija if I could use this lovely verse card that she has on blog site.
This verse shows us what is really important in this life.
Felisol's dad has died a rich man.
My dad is a poor man indeed and will be poorer still if he doesn't get saved!
I really loved the first hymn that we sang in our worship meeting!
"Crowned with thorns upon the tree,
Silent in Thine agony;
Dying, crushed beneath the load
Of the wrath and curse of God.
On Thy pale and suffering brow,
Mystery of love and woe;
On Thy grief and sore amaze,
Saviour, I would fix my gaze!
On Thy pierced and bleeding breast
Thou doest bid the weary rest;
Rest there from the world's false ways,
Rest there from its vanities.
Rest in pardon and relief
From the load of guilt and grief
Rest in Thy redeeming blood
Rest in perfect peace with God.
Thou art precious in mine eyes;
Thou alone my rest shall be
Now and through eternity."
Felisol's dad has perfect peace and his family feel this peace even though their hearts are breaking!
If only Dad Golden would realize that the willing death of the Lord Jesus has paid for all of his sins and perfect peace is being offered to him!
Then he would be happy and his family would be happy even though their hearts are hurting for him because he is sick!
O how happy Mom Golden would be!
This Bible scripture is for my dad.
Matthew 11:28..."Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."
This Bible scripture is for Felisol's dad,
Psalm 16:11..."Thou wilt show me the path of life; in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand are pleasures for evermore."
Thank you for all your prayers for my friend, Felisol!
