The inspiration for this website came from a Scripture song I heard over 10 years ago at a ladies retreat:

Like Apples of Gold in pictures of silver
A word fitly spoken shall be,
Like Apples of Gold in pictures of silver
Let my life bring glory to thee.

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
Proverbs 25:11

Although some of the "stories" listed are made up, the Scriptural truths they illustrate are very real and can be of great benefit in a Christian's walk with the Lord and as illustrations for the lost.

It is my heart's desire that amongst the pages of this website, the Christian find words of encouragement and be spurred on to service for our Lord, and that seekers of the truth find Salvation in the timeless truths of God's Word for these troubled times.

I Am Learning, Lord

I Am Learning, Lord

My life has taken many falls
And tumbles ‘long the way.
The many trials have left me
In a sure state of dismay.
For with each trial, I tried alone
To tend, and soothe, and mend,
Instead of giving them to God –
And on Him just depend …

But, I am learning, Lord.

It seems that I was determined
to carry all the load.
I longed for smoother pathways.
Yet, I walked a rocky road.
Little did I understand,
God waited patiently
To pave a new beginning
With a better life for me.

But, I am learning, Lord.

It took a real disaster
To bring me to my knees;
To finally call upon the Lord
And say, “God help me, please.”
He can, with no delaying,
With strong arms that could hold –
The weight of all my burdens;
He gladly took the load.

And, I am learning, Lord.

What a needless cross I carried,
All because I could not see –
What a friend I have in Jesus,
And the love He has for me.
Peace I find when troubles hover,
Though’ the outcome is unknown.
For if yet the road is rocky,
I won’t walk it all alone.

For, I am learning, Lord.
