God the Holy Spirit

The response from the last Praiseletter, Be Filled With the Spirit, has been most encouraging and has confirmed the notion that we should dig deeper and continue discussing biblical truth regarding the precious Holy Spirit. I began writing a song some years ago that I am recently revisiting.

Be Filled With the Spirit

“And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit.”   Ephesians 5:18 In Paul’s letter to the church at Ephesus, he reminds believers, especially in chapter five, to be imitators of God. He goes on to point out very specifically, areas of immorality, impurity and “deeds of […]

Tis The Season

Yes, once again the holiday season is upon us and it seems to have arrived on a swifter schedule than last year and all previous years. Like a line from a song I wrote years ago: The years they come and go Like clouds on a windy day The moments pass so swiftly Our lives […]

Christ and Him Crucified

A number of years ago I was making my way to the back of an auditorium where I had just completed ministering in concert and in word.

About halfway back a young man stepped in front of me and asked, “After all these years, what keeps you going?” Without a moment’s hesitation I responded, “The image of a man on a cross!”

His Way is in the Whirlwind

“In whirlwind and storm is His way. And clouds are the dust beneath His feet.” Nahum 1:3 On Saturday, April 13th I left Lindale, Texas, my hometown, to travel to San Antonio, Texas, for a couple of ministry opportunities on the 15th. I had been watching the weather report for a few days and they […]

God is Good!

“Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good except God alone.” Mark 10:18 We know intellectually that God is good, for scripture assures us He is. But do we know experientially that He is good, when we find ourselves in the midst of bad or difficult circumstances? The last Praiseletter I […]

Be Anxious for Nothing

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” Philippians 4:6 I wrote 2019 on something the other day and once again I was caught off guard as to how swiftly the previous year had flown by. A new year suddenly stretches before […]

Lord I’m Waiting

Just recently I was re-reading the chapter entitled “Waiting” from my book, Words of Hope and Comfort. I mentioned in the book that Waiting is one of my personal favorites of all the songs I’ve written. However, I couldn’t remember (and still can’t) exactly when, where or why I wrote it. I did surmise, after […]

Rescue the Perishing

Rescue the perishing, care for the dying Snatch them in pity from sin and the grave Weep o’er the erring one, lift up the fallen Tell them of Jesus, the mighty to save (Fanny Crosby; William Doane) I am writing this edition of the Praiseletter on the 17th anniversary of the 911 terrorist attacks, September […]
