“Blessed be the name of the LORD!!!”


Blessed be the name of the LORD!!!: http://youtu.be/pKkNXEEJoAQ

This is another song that means a lot to me. It was also recorded a few years ago. You may need to turn up your speakers. Some parts are difficult to hear. I pray that you are blessed by this song and it’s message.
Trusting in Him.

This is a video of me singing a song that means so much to me. I recorded this several years ago, but the message of the song is still the same today.
Trusting in Him,

Psalm 61:1-2, 4-5, 8


Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer.
From the ends of the earth I call to You,
I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the Rock that is higher than I.

I long to dwell in Your tent forever
And take refuge in the shelter of Your wings.
For You have heard my vows, O God;
You have given me the heritage of
Those who fear Your Name.

Then will I ever sing praise to Your Name
And fulfill my vows day after day.

I’m back!


I haven’t shared anything in so very long and I’ve missed you all! Sadly, my laptop and iPhone were stolen and I had no way to get online.  Thankfully,  I have a smart phone now and can visit the world wide web once again! Since I’ve been gone, I’ve been writing with plain old pencil and paper! I will hopefully get something typed out to share with you soon. As I only have a phone to access my blog with, it may take me a bit to accomplish this task.  Nonetheless,  I am thankful to be with you once again and look foreward to reading all that you have shared.
Wishing you a blessed day,
Shirley Washam

The Seed of Faith, by Shirley Ann Washam


20140408-133951.jpg
Cut down by the adversary
Left broken and scared
But a seed has been planted
By the master, with care

Another will water
And a different one tend
He will give increase
In the end

The shade and sunlight
Will help it to grow
How He brings it new life
Only He knows

It sprouts and it blooms
A fragrance of praise
Stretching toward heaven
Growing closer each day

It’s strength is a mystery
Casting mountains to seas
Breaking bonds of doubt
Setting captives free

Singing songs of salvation
Of mercy and grace
Pulling up fear
Planting peace in its place

Growing strong and tall
Stretching its roots
Hoping and believing
Producing His fruits

Your Word, by Shirley Ann Washam


Image

In sorrow, I look to it for comfort.

In fear, I look to it for peace.

When I feel alone and abandoned,

It assures me You will never leave.

 

In pain, I look to it for healing.

In need, it says You will provide;

And when I feel oppressed by the darkness,

I look to it to find the Light.

 

Your word sustains generations.

It feeds the multitudes.

It binds the wounds of the broken,

Your Word is hope and life and truth.

 

By it, was created

All that we hear and feel and see.

And by it, You brought to being,

All that will ever be.

 

Your Word is perfect and unchanging;

Infallible, complete.

Your Word is living and it’s breathing.

It is alive in me.

Grace and Peace


1    Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the elect sojourners of the Dispersion of Pontus, of Galatia, of Cappadocia, of Asia, and of Bithynia,
2    according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, in sanctification of the Spirit, to obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ. May grace and peace be multiplied to you. (1 Peter 1:1-2)

“It’s wonderful to think about God’s grace and peace. They are two of the loveliest words God speaks to us, words that move our souls. Bit lets look a little deeper!
Grace is active and means ‘favor’. So whatever your situation, whatever the occasion, you have God’s favor. You have whatever I is going to take for you to endure, cope, have the victory, and be triumphant in it. And Peter prays that that God’s grace would be multiplied, in ever-increasing measure; that you will experience more and more of it, over and over again, time after time, in its fullest measure!
Peace, on the other hand, is passive and refers to rest. And so, dear one, whatever your situation, whatever the occasion or need, you have God’s peace, God’s rest in your suffering . Whatever the trial or test, in it you have not only God’s power but God’s rest.”

From Elizabeth George’s study of 1Peter, Putting On a Gentle & Quiet Spirit
