Traveling On My Knees 

Traveling On My Knees 

Author Unknown

Last night I took a journey

To a land across the seas

I didn’t go by ship or plane

I traveled on my knees.

I saw so many people there

In bondage to their sins,

And Jesus told me I should go,

That there were souls to win.

But I said, “Jesus, I can’t go

To lands across the seas.”

He answered quickly, “Yes, you can

By traveling on your knees.”

He said, “You pray, I’ll meet the need,

You call, and I will hear,

It’s up to you to be concerned

For lost souls far and near.”

And so I did, I knelt in prayer,

Gave up some hours of ease,

And with the Savior by my side,

I traveled on my knees.

As I prayed on, I saw souls saved

And twisted persons healed,

I saw God’s workers’ strength renewed

While laboring on the field.

I said, “Yes, Lord, I’ll take the job,

Your heart I want to please,

I’ll heed your call and swiftly go

By traveling on my knees.”

What is Stopping You

What is Stopping You

By Jeffrey Bush

What is stopping you from serving Jesus?

What is stopping you from selling all out? 

Is it your comfort, dreams, friends or own plans?

Is it sin, pleasures, fear or just plain doubt? 

 

What is stopping you from serving Jesus?

What is stopping you from selling all out? 

Would you be willing to drop all now?

And say God I’m all yours to be devout?

 

What is stopping you from serving Jesus?

What is stopping you from selling all out? 

Do you realize God saved, loved and bought you?

That life for self is empty, vain and meaningless no doubt?

 

What is stopping you from serving Jesus?

What is stopping you from selling all out? 

Life is short and time is diminishing,

It’s time to serve Him for that’s what life is all about.

 

What is stopping you from serving Jesus?

What is stopping you from selling all out? 

Is it education, fame, family or friends?

Why are you not willing to go without? 

 

Jesus is coming back very soon.

Give your life, desires, time and all, how about?

It’s time to start serving Jesus.

What is stopping you from selling all out?

 

His Shoes Are Left Empty

His Shoes Are Left Empty

In Honor of the Life of Dr. Stinnett Ballew

June 8, 2019

 

 

I attended a funeral 

just a few days ago,

It was for a man of God 

Who had faithfully served Him so. 

 

 

His shoes are left empty, 

Who will fill them now? 

If we’ll only desire and volunteer, 

God will show us how. 

 

 

He raised money and men 

For the foreign field,

He encouraged all God’s people 

To give, to go and to yield. 

 

 

His shoes are left empty, 

Who will fill them now? 

If we’ll only desire and volunteer, 

God will show us how. 

 

 

Writing 24 books to help

All over he did constantly preach. 

Represented on 120 radio stations 

From his words to his actions he did teach. 

 

 

His shoes are left empty, 

Who will fill them now? 

If we’ll only desire and volunteer, 

God will show us how. 

 

 

His life was consumed for Jesus.

He used all his energy and breath, 

Faithful to his wife and to his God 

All the way up until his death

 

 

His shoes are left empty, 

Who will fill them now? 

If we’ll only desire and volunteer, 

God will show us how. 

 

 

So many great servants of God 

Have now moved off the scene

Our Christ is returning soon

So let’s live dedicated and clean.

 

 

His shoes are left empty, 

Who will fill them now? 

If we’ll only desire and volunteer, 

God will show us how.
