united to Christ

It is 10:03 AM Tuesday morning in West Michigan. Outside this morning it is windy and overcast. It is predicted to rain this afternoon. At least there is no snow coming this week or the beginning of the month of December 2017.

I got up this morning around 7:15 AM. I got up and got a glass of orange juice and messed with our main computer. After messing with our main computer I made myself a small pot of oatmeal. As I ate my oatmeal I stared into space and took my pills. I next wrote in my paper diary and read some of the book, 'Sanctification' by Michael Allen. As I was reading my dear sweet wife arrived home from work. She works tonight and then is off for two nights. Our lives together is fast coming to a close. I want to be near my wife forever and ever. I never want to leave the side of my wife. My wife and I are one flesh one spirit one soul. Where ever my wife goes after this life I want to go with her. I want to be with my wife in the Eternal State. I pray eternal death does not separate us.

Last night after my wife left for work I made a video for my Booktube channel and watched a show I had taped on our Smart TV. I do not remember reading anything last night. I went to bed around 10:30 PM. Now it is another day. Existence keeps speeding by faster and faster!

I have no plans for the day. I am thinking of sitting and listening to the wind blow outside. I am tired. I suppose I will close to wait it out. I am no Spring chicken.

"[14] Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.
[15] For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
[16] Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need." Hebrews 4:14-16

Great High Priest, We See Thee Stooping

Great High Priest, we see Thee stooping,
With our names upon Thy breast,
In the garden groaning, drooping,
To the ground with sorrows pressed.
Weeping angels stand confounded,
To behold their Maker thus,
And shall we remain unwounded,
When we know ’twas all for us?

On the cross Thy body broken,
Cancels every penalty;
Tempted souls produce this token
All demands to satisfy.
All is finished; do not doubt it,
But believe your dying Lord;
Never reason more about it,
Only take Him at His Word.

Come, behold your Savior bleeding,
Streams of mercy from Him flow,
Whilst before His Father pleading
For those men who wrought His woe.
Lo, He cried, Father, forgive them,
Though they do My life pursue,
I am willing to receive them,
For they know not what they do.

Come, Thou everlasting Spirit,
Bring to every thankful mind
All the Savior’s dying merit,
All His suffering for mankind.
True recorder of His passion,
Now Thy living fire impart,
Now reveal Thy great salvation,
Preach His Gospel to our heart.

Lord, we fain would trust Thee solely;
’Twas for us Thy blood was spilt;
Bruisèd Bridegroom, take us wholly,
Take, and make us what Thou wilt.
Thou has borne the bitter sentence
Passed on man’s devoted race;
True belief, and true repentance
Are Thy gifts, Thou God of grace..
