Encouraging Words For the Weekend


For those times when we are helpless to move forward because we are overwhelmed with shame and regret over past mistakes and failures - a few words from the old hymn writers:

"He breaks the power of canceled sin,
  He sets the prisoner free;
  His blood can make the foulest clean,
  His blood availed for me."

Charles Wesley - O For A Thousand Tongues

"My sin, oh the bliss of this glorious thought:
  My sin, not in part but the whole,
  is nailed to the cross and I bear it no more,
  praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!"

Horatio G. Spafford  - It Is Well With My Soul

"Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith…"   Hebrews 12:2
 Linda
