Welcome to the Great Physician
Office hours are as you come,
He’s a Specialist in all problems
And His day is never done.
He can heal a heart that’s broken
He can mend the spirit, too,
No matter what your ailment
He does have the cure for you.
His fee for service never alters
He serves rich and poor as well,
He’s our one chance for Salvation,
He alone saves us from Hell.
There’s no fee for services rendered
All He asks is that we believe,
That He bled and died to save us
And all His blessings we will receive.
Do you have a special problem
That is troubling you this hour?

.
Then just simply leave it with Him
You can find no greater power.
Don’t delay in seeking treatment
Please, my friend, don’t hesitate,
For His office is soon closing
And He’ll shut and lock the gate.
I wouldn’t want you to suffer
While the Doctor’s so close by,
Your whole life will be much better
If my Physician you will try.
In Case of Emergencies . . .

When thou passest through the waters,

I will be with thee;

and through the rivers,

they shall not overflow thee:

when thou walkest through the fire,

thou shalt not be burned;

neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.

– Isaiah 43:2

..

 

God’s word offers medicine for every one of our situations.  We will encounter scorching ‘fires’ and turbulent ‘rivers’, but if we allow God to walk with us we will not be scorched by the fires nor drowned by the angry seas.  We serve a God who says, “I will be with Thee”.

A Scripture A Day…

 The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer;

my God, my strength, in whom I will trust;

my buckler, and the horn of my salvation,

and my high tower.

– (Psalm 18:2)

..

 

The story is told of a young preacher named Augustus Toplady who was taking a walk through the English countryside when a sudden storm swept across the landscape.  Toplady spotted a wide rock formation with an opening; a cleft where he sought shelter until the storm passed.  As he sat out the deluge, he contemplated the connection between his shelter and God’s help in life’s storms.

..

He had no paper to write on but found a playing card on the floor of the cave-like structure and began to write the words of the hymn “Rock of Ages”.  Written on that stormy day in 1775, this hymn has been a source of strength for Christians ever since.

..

Rock of ages, cleft for me,

Let me hide myself in Thee;

Let the water and the blood,

From Thy wounded side which flowed,

Be of sin the double cure,

Save from wrath and make me pure.

..

Think of your struggles.

Do you need a place to hide?

Do you need Someone to shelter you from life’s assaults?

Do you need the assurance that you’ve been forgiven?

..

As Toplady experienced, we can find shelter and assurance in God.

Don’t stand out in life’s storms alone.

 Holy Spirit’s presence on the Day of Pentecost

.

“Faith is inspired by the Holy Spirit,

and it will flourish

only as it is cherished.”

..

Hebrews chapter 11 in the Bible is known as “The Hall of Faith”.

..

Hebrews 11:1 

 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (KJV).

 

 

..

The Bible uses the words faith and belief or believe interchangeably.

Eternal life is received by grace through faith.

Faith is the victory that overcomes the world …

..

and without faith it is impossible to please God (1 John 5:4; Heb 11:6).

A MountainWings Moment - Angels Unaware‏

Angels Unaware
==============
.

My children and I had a dental appointment with Dr. Hilliard
here in Abilene one day in 1997 and when I was paying the bill
his receptionist was telling me all the work that needed to be
done on our teeth.

.

Mine totaled up to over $500.00 and being a single parent, that
was COMPLETELY out of the question. She was telling me that I
could do it “little by little” and I was letting her know that
there wasn’t enough “little by little” in the world to justify
me spending $500.00 on MY mouth.

.

There were things that my children needed done and I would get
those done, but that the work on my mouth simply would not be
done. She understood and we left.

.

Later that day, she called me at work and told me that they had
an anonymous donor that wanted to pay the bill to have the work
done on my teeth. I thought she was kidding or that the doctor
was just going to do the work free, and that he did not want me
to feel bad so they were going to pretend like someone was going
to pay for it.

.

When it was obvious that neither of those were true, I figured
the doctor must have somehow figured out who my parents were and
called them.

.

I guess it took less of a miracle in my mind for him to figure
out who they were, even though he did not know them and that was
the first time we had ever been to see him, than for a total
stranger to be willing to pay my dental bill.
.


I c
alled my Mom and of course, she knew nothing about it.

.

After call after call to the receptionist to make sure she
wasn’t kidding, she finally told me that there was a lady in the
waiting room when I was paying out that had overheard our
conversation and had told her that she wanted to cover the
cost to have my teeth work done, but she did not want me to know
who she was.

.

There is NO WAY to explain how shocked I was!!!!

.


Needle
ss to say, I got the work done that I needed and she paid
the bill. Then a little while before Christmas that year, the
receptionist called me at work again and told me they had
something for me that I needed to pick up…..I went down there
and there was an envelope from “Our Angel” with a check from
one of the local churches for $300.00 in it to help us with
Christmas.

.

She had given it to the church for them to write the check so
her identity would still remain unknown.

.

It turns out she was a Christian lady that had also been a
single mom. Once again……I simply could not believe
It and still can’t really. There is no way she will ever know
how many times she still crosses my mind and how many prayers I
have prayed for the Lord to send her a special blessing and if
He can….to someway let her know it is from us through Him.
There is a special place in our hearts that is her’s and her’s
alone and there always will be.

.

The doctor told me one day that I had been in the same room with
her about 6 months earlier and was surprised to find out that I
still did not know her identity.

.

The first thing that came to my mind was that I hope I wasn’t
having a bad day that day. When I told the receptionist that,
she said she didn’t figure I had acted bad (but then she doesn’t
know how bad I can act when things aren’t going my way).

.

That just goes to show you that you never can tell when you are
“entertaining angels” and you sure wouldn’t want to be showing
your “less than loveable side” at the time.

.

On top of all this a couple of months ago, I was going through
