Sunday Hymnal: Holy, Holy, Holy

This is my all time favorite hymn.

I love the power and passion behind this song.

While searching YouTube for a video, I stumbled upon this wonderful acapella version.

Enjoy and remember, it is because God works in all things that we can sing His praises even after a huge dose of pure evil was unleashed last week.

 

 

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our song shall rise to Thee;
Holy, holy, holy, merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessèd Trinity!

Holy, holy, holy! All the saints adore Thee,
Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;
Cherubim and seraphim falling down before Thee,
Who was, and is, and evermore shall be.

Holy, holy, holy! though the darkness hide Thee,
Though the eye of sinful man Thy glory may not see;
Only Thou art holy; there is none beside Thee,
Perfect in power, in love, and purity.

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
All Thy works shall praise Thy name, in earth, and sky, and sea;
Holy, holy, holy; merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessèd Trinity!

Weekend Wisdom: All Things

Life was rough for family members yesterday.

While I celebrated 22 years since joining the Kearns’ family, Joe’s niece and her family were saying “See you later.” to a beloved dog.

Then my cousin in Texas messaged me with a prayer request for his mother-in-law.

I sat down at my desk and my Bible was opened to Romans 8 and I had highlighted verse 28

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.

Look at those words – All things.  Absolutely, positively all things including death, and serious diagnoses God sees to it that something good will come from it.

What? Only God knows.

When? Only God knows.

Where? Only God knows.

It is not up to us to know those things, but to have faith that in due time God will bring good out of any nasty life event.

For Ourselves

Michele Kearns:

I just had to share this today, a day that is all about love. Read this then go show love and help to someone on the wrong side of the fence. Do this in honor of Joe and I being married 22 years ago today.

God bless you.

“The supreme happiness

of life is the conviction

that we are loved;

loved for ourselves,

or rather in spite

of ourselves.”

~ Victor Hugo

I love you.

God loves you.

All you need to do is love yourself

and the world will be complete.

Be happy and everyone will love you.

Today, try to help those souls

who are on the wrong side of the fence,

share your love, help them be happy,

and help them cross over into the sunny side of life.

Happiness is knowing that you are loved.

Happiness is helping someone love themselves.
