Growth In Godliness Is Not Measured By What Already Comes Easily To You (via David Murray)

David Murray asks “Why do we take our individual, personality, character, gifts, or calling and make that the sum total of godliness for everyone else?”
After numerous examples of what he means, he sums up:
“Godliness should be measured not so much by what comes easiest to us but by the progress we’re making in areas we’re weakest in.”

Keep Us Safe – Sunday Songs

Keep Us Safe is from Matthew Smith’s recently released Quiet Hymns.

The lyrics:

The day is past and gone, the evening shades appear
O may we all remember well, the night of death is near

We lay our garments by, upon our beds to rest
So death will soon disrobe us all of what we now possess

Lord, keep us safe this night, secure from all our fears
Beneath the wings of your love till morning light appears

And when we early rise and view the unwearied sun
May we set out to win the prize and after glory run

Lord, keep us safe this night, secure from all our fears
Beneath the wings of your love till morning light appears

And when our days are past and we from time remove
O may we in Your presence rest – the presence of your love

Lord, keep us safe this night, secure from all our fears
Beneath the wings of your love till morning light appears
