He will not abandon us

It is in the flow 1:05 PM Friday afternoon Eastern Standard Time. Outside this afternoon it is cold, dark and rainy. It feels like it might snow.

I have had thus far today a normal day. I covered for someone at the book nook (Herrick District Library Used Books Store) from 10 o'clock AM till Noon. While at the library book nook I wandered the store and read from a book titled, "Other Colors: Essays And A Story" by Orhan Pamuk. I brought home from the book nook one used book to add to our library titled, "The Men Who United The States: America's Explorers, Inventors, Eccentrics, and Mavericks, and the Creation of the One Nation, Indivisible" by Simon Winchester.

This morning I read for morning worship from a book titled, 'Psalm 1-72" Old Testament VII Reformation Commentary On Scripture. In this commentary I am on Psalm 9 "The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble" Ps. 9:9.

Last night we got back from having Thanksgiving with our oldest son Caleb and his family wife Emily and baby Josie Joy. We had a nice time with them and were home by 6:50 PM. The Lord granted us traveling mercies.

Carol and I were very tired so we went to bed around 9 o'clock PM.

Not much else to report. I got out to look at today a book titled, "Reformation Reading of Paul: Explorations in History and Exegesis" Edited by Michael Allen & Jonathan A. Linebaugh.

I suppose I will close to drift and to wait to see what comes in the mail this afternoon. Carol works the next two nights so she has gone to bed for the day. The house is quiet except for the noise of our dog Rudy chewing on himself. Existence keeps speeding by! "Thou has rebuked the heathen, thou hast destroyed the wicked, thou hast put out their name for ever and ever" Psalm 9:5.

Passion - Come As You Are (Live) fr. Crowder



Come out of sadness
From wherever you’ve been
Come broken hearted
Let rescue begin
Come find your mercy
Oh sinner come kneel
Earth has no sorrow
That heaven can’t heal
Earth has no sorrow
That heaven can’t heal

So lay down your burdens
Lay down your shame
All who are broken
Lift up your face
Oh wanderer come home
You’re not too far
So lay down your hurt
Lay down your heart
Come as you are

There’s hope for the hopeless
And all those who’ve strayed
Come sit at the table
Come taste the grace
There’s rest for the weary
Rest that endures
Earth has no sorrow
That heaven can’t cure

So lay down your burdens
Lay down your shame
All who are broken
Lift up your face
Oh wanderer come home
You’re not too far
So lay down your hurt
Lay down your heart
Come as you are
Come as you are
Fall in his arms
Come as you are
There’s joy for the morning
Oh sinner be still
Earth has no sorrow
That heaven can’t heal
Earth has no sorrow
That heaven can’t heal

So lay down your burdens
Lay down your shame
All who are broken
Lift up your face
Oh wanderer come home
You’re not too far
So lay down your hurt
Lay down your heart
Come as you are
Come as you are
Come as you are
