Dear Young People…

This morning was a mind-wandering morning for me. The type where you have work that could be done but nothing urgent for the next few hours. I was enjoying the quiet stillness of my classroom, sipping my coffee, and deciding what to tackle first. Nothing was screaming “pick me,” so I picked nothing in particular. […]

Change

The pace of change today is staggering, as are the effects on human life, heart, mind, soul, and body. Yet the Bible says Jehovah never changes (Malachi 3:6, Hebrews 13:8). How does the unchanging character of God comfort you? How will you apply this truth to the children of God as you labor with them?  […]

Day by Day

Trust

When life seems hard—impossible to bear— This thought sustains: I know my Savior’s there.   Some days it seems each little task goes wrong. I’m helpless then, but know my Savior’s strong.   My pain and suff’ring may sometimes o’erwhelm But then I’m comforted: this is my Father’s realm.   Good friends ofttimes don’t seem […]

The Lord of Hosts is With Us

This poem was read at the 1980 Convention as a special number.   When the narrow way leads across rough terrain And we struggle to make it, but all seems in vain, Then we should remember that we have a Guide, For God in His wisdom is close by our side.   When doubts and […]

Blessed Confidence in Jehovah’s Word

“…for He hath said, I will never leave thee nor forsake thee.” (Genesis 28:5; Joshua 1:5; Hebrews 13:5b) “…the Lord is my helper, I will not fear what man shall do to me.” (Psalm 118:6; Hebrews 13:6)   There are times in the life of both young and old believers when the future looms dark […]

Reproached by the Enemy

The nations rage and the people imagine a vain thing, when has this not been the case? The sea rages in the storm and the mire is cast up, at which time has this not been the case? Wars plague the continents, and rumors of war cause all men to faint in their exertions for […]

The Essential Ingredient

We have a custom in our churches, and I believe it to be a good one, to hold prayer-day service the second Wednesday of March.  The intent was that one could not properly begin a season of planting without entering into the house of the Lord to beseech His blessing upon the labor.  Though most […]

Trust in the Lord

Not human strength or mighty hosts Not charging steeds or war-like boasts Can save from overthrow; But God will save from death and shame All those who fear and trust His Name Any they no want shall know.   “To trust: to confide; to have confidence in God.  What is it?” The singer of Psalm […]

Unknown

We are standing on the threshold of a new year—1946 is past forever—1947 stretches out before us.  How fast those years go by! With this transition from the old to the new there comes, as a matter of course, a change in viewpoint.  No, reality is no different now than it was last month when […]

Strong in the Lord

Sometimes our way seems hard. The future lies before us dark and gray; Mists veil the path ahead, Unknown the trials to come, unknown the way. Faint-hearted then we fear The coming hours today, we fear the morrow, And we so fain would know What lies in store for us of joy or sorrow.   […]
