We Rest on Thee

We rest on Thee, our Shield and our Defender!
We go not forth alone against the foe;
Strong in Thy strength, safe in Thy keeping tender,
We rest on Thee, and in Thy Name we go.

Yes, in Thy Name, O Captain of salvation!
In Thy dear Name, all other names above;
Jesus our Righteousness, our sure Foundation,
Our Prince of glory and our King of love.

We go in faith, our own great weakness feeling,
And needing more each day Thy grace to know:
Yet from our hearts a song of triumph pealing,
"We rest on Thee, and in Thy Name we go."

We rest on Thee, our Shield and our Defender!
Thine is the battle, Thine shall be the praise;
When passing through the gates of pearly splendor,
Victors, we rest with Thee, through endless days.

We Rest on Thee by Edith Cherry

September

"It was a September evening and all the gaps and clearings in the woods were brimmed up with ruby sunset light. Here and there the lane was splashed with it, but for the most part it was already quite shadowy beneath the maples, and the spaces under the firs were filled with a clear violet dusk like airy wine. The winds were out in their tops, and there is no sweeter music on earth than that which the wind makes in the fir trees at evening."

Lucy M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

Serving in Secret

"Now concerning brotherly love you have no need for anyone to write to you, for you yourselves have been taught by God to love one another, for that indeed is what you are doing to all the brothers throughout Macedonia. But we urge you, brothers, to do this more and more, and to aspire to live quietly, and to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands, as we instructed you, so that you may walk properly before outsiders and be dependent on no one."
(I Thessalonians 4:9-12, ESV)

Invisibility. Being unknown. In our day and age of viral videos launching people into world-wide fame, of competing social media sites, of seemingly incessant self-promotion, what does the daily life of a Christian look like? How do we interact with the availability or platforms to promote ourselves?

Paul's exhortation to the Thessalonians is to continue to grow in what they've been doing: they are to continue to love one another in brotherly love. And the way they are to do this is not to promote their good works. Their giving, their love, should be done in secret. If they do it to be praised by others, they will have received their reward. They, however, should serve in secret, and thus receive their reward from the One Who sees in secret.

Serve humbly. Without fanfare. Live quietly. Work simply with your hands. Your audience is God. No other audience matters. Be faithful, even if no one else notices. Do not be weary of doing good. The God Who sees all sees your humble and faithful service. Internet fame is fleeting, even if it lasts for years. Be faithful to the One Who matters. He is worthy of praise; He is worthy of your service.

Free from Guilt and Free from Sin

Dark the stain I cannot hide
Stain of my sin my guilt to prove
Guilt my own and foolish pride
Pride the reason for my sin

Light of God came shining down
Son of God my soul to win
Laid aside His heav'nly crown
Paid the price for all my sin

Love of God that lights my way
Love displayed on Calvary
Lamb of God my soul to save
Gave His life to set me free

Gone the darkness come the light
Gone the night the day begins
Gone the wrong my soul made right
Free from guilt and free from sin

Wash me in the Savior's blood
Make me pure without within
Cleanse my heart and set me free
Free from guilt and free from sin

Free from Guilt and Free from Sin by Don and Jaree Hall
