My Bible and I

We've traveled together through life's rugged way,
O'er land and over water, by night and by day:
To travel without it I never would try,
We keep close together, my Bible and I.

In sorrow I've proved it my comfort and joy,
When weak my strong tower which nought can destroy;
When death comes so near me 'tis thought I would die,
We still are together, my Bible and I.

If powers of evil against me would come,
And threaten to rob me of heaven and home,
God's Word then directs me to Him in the sky;
And nothing can part us, my Bible and I.

When evil temptations are brought to my view,
And I in my weakness know not what to do,
On Christ as my strength I am taught to rely;
And so we keep company, my Bible and I.

When life's path is ended; if Jesus should come
and take all His blood-purchased children home;
Or if, in long suffering, He waits till I die,
We'll never be parted, my Bible and I.

And when in the glory my Lord I behold,
with all His redeemed gathered safe in the fold,
My Bible and I close companions will be
For God's Word abides for all eternity!

I thank God for my Bible, and how God blesses us as we read. I wanted to ask that you pray for me as we have accepted the Pastorate at Johnstown Baptist Church in Lake Butler Florida. Still love reading your blog even though sometimes I don't comment.

Bro. Tim,

Thanks for the kind words of encouragement regarding my blog. I will be praying for you as you venture into this next step of faith... you will be greatly missed in your former church, but God has been preparing you to do even greater things for Him in the future. Stay in the Book and continue to allow the Holy Spirit to guide and control your life!!!

I love my King James Bible!! I even like to kiss it! I love to hold it! But I love reading it and that it feeds me and blesses me and gets my attention about things in my life.
