Seek ye the LORD 

while he may be found>






Let your loins be girded
about, and your lights burning; Luke 1



Then shall we know,
if we follow on to
know the LORD: his
going forth is prepared
as the morning; and he 
shall come unto us as
the rain, as the latter
and former rain unto
the earth. Hosea 6:3

Killarney, On, Can

The LORD is nigh unto all them
that call upon him, to all that call
upon him in truth.
He will fulfil the desire of them
that fear him: he also will hear their
cry, and will save them.
Psalm 145:18,19

“The evening and the morning were the first day"
Genesis 1:5

Was it so even in the beginning? Did light and darkness divide the realm of time in the first day? Then little wonder is it if I have also changes in my circumstances from the sunshine of prosperity to the midnight of adversity. It will not always be the blaze of noon even in my soul concerns, I must expect at seasons to mourn the absence of my former joys, and seek my Beloved in the night. Nor am I alone in this, for all the Lord’s beloved ones have had to sing the mingled song of judgment and of mercy, of trial and deliverance, of mourning and of delight. It is one of the arrangements of Divine providence that day and night shall not cease either in the spiritual or natural creation till we reach the land of which it is written, “there is no night there.” What our heavenly Father ordains is wise and good.

What, then, my soul, is it best for thee to do? Learn first to be content with this divine order, and be willing, with Job, to receive evil from the hand of the Lord as well as good. Study next, to make the outgoings of the morning and the evening to rejoice. Praise the Lord for the sun of joy when it rises, and for the gloom of evening as it falls. There is beauty both in sunrise and sunset; sing of it, and glorify the Lord. Like the nightingale, pour forth thy notes at all hours. Believe that the night is as useful as the day. The dews of grace fall heavily in the night of sorrow. The stars of promise shine forth gloriously amid the darkness of grief. Continue thy service under all changes. If in the day thy watchword be labour, at night exchange it for watch. Every hour has its duty, do thou continue in thy calling as the Lord’s servant until he shall suddenly appear in his glory. My soul, thine evening of old age and death is drawing near; dread it not, for it is part of the day; and the Lord has said, “I will cover him all the day long.”

Paul's Short Summary of the Gospel Message in Romans

 But now the righteousness of God
 without the law is manifested,
being witnessed by the law and
the prophets;

 Even the righteousness
 of God which is by faith of Jesus
Christ unto all and upon all them
that believe: for there is no difference:

 For all have sinned, and come short
of the glory of God;

Being justified freely by his grace
 through the redemption that is in
Christ Jesus:

Whom God hath set forth to be a
propitiation through faith in his blood,
to declare his righteousness for the
remission of sins that are past, through
 the forbearance of God;

To declare, I say, at this time
his righteousness: that he might
 be just, and the justifier of him which
 believeth in Jesus.

Romans 3: 21-26

God setteth the solitary in families:
he bringeth out those which are bound with chains:
but the rebellious dwell in a dry land.

When the poor and needy seek water,
and there is none, and their tongue
 faileth for thirst, 
 I the Lord will hear them...

LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning;
and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the

Sow to yourselves in righteousness,

for it is time to seek the LORD, till
he come and rain righteousness upon you.

There shall be showers of blessing:
This is the promise of love;
There shall be seasons refreshing,
Sent from the Savior above.

* Refrain:
  Showers of blessing,
   Showers of blessing we need:
   Mercy-drops round us are falling,
   But for the showers we plead.

There shall be showers of blessing,
Precious reviving again;
Over the hills and the valleys,
Sound of abundance of rain.

There shall be showers of blessing;
Send them upon us, O Lord;
Grant to us now a refreshing,
Come, and now honor Thy Word.

There shall be showers of blessing:
Oh, that today they might fall,
Now as to God we’re confessing,
Now as on Jesus we call!

There shall be showers of blessing,
If we but trust and obey;
There shall be seasons refreshing,
If we let God have His way.

Hold Fast

... for I know whom I have believed,
 and am persuaded that he is able
 to keep that which I have committed
 unto him against that day.
Hold fast the form of sound
 words, which thou hast heard
of me, in faith and love
which is in Christ Jesus.
