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.

Start Over

Start Over

When you’ve trusted God and walked his way,
When you’ve felt His hand lead you day by day,
But your steps now take you another way…..
Start Over

When you’ve made your plans and they’ve gone awry,
When you’ve tried your best and there’s no more try,
When you’ve failed yourself and you don’t know why……
Start Over

When you’ve told your friends what you plan to do,
When you’ve trusted them and they didn’t come through;
And now you’re all alone and it’s up to you…..
Start Over

When you’ve failed your kids and they’re grown and gone,
When you’ve done your best but it’s turned out wrong,
And now your grandchildren have come along……
Start Over

When you’ve prayed to God so you’ll know His will,
When you’ve prayed and prayed and you don’t know still,
When you want to stop cause you’ve had your fill……
Start Over

When you think you’re finished and want to quit,
When you’ve bottomed out in life’s deepest pit,
When you’ve tried and tried to get out of it…..
Start Over

When the year has been long and successes are few,
When December comes and you’re feeling blue,
God gives a January just for you….
Start Over

Starting over means “Victories Won”;
Starting over means “A Race well run”;
Starting over means “God’s Will Be Done”;

Don’t just sit there……
START OVER.
