Renee Chapman LIVE with Whitesburg First Baptist Church Choir | When I Survey the Wondrous Cross | #Easter #Singing #music #Christian





Renee Chapman LIVE with Whitesburg First Baptist Church Choir

When I Survey the Wondrous Cross | March 29, 2015 Easter Cantata



When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.
Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast,
Save in the death of Christ my God!
All the vain things that charm me most,
I sacrifice them to His blood.
See from His head, His hands, His feet,
Sorrow and love flow mingled down!
Did e’er such love and sorrow meet,
Or thorns compose so rich a crown?
Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small;
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.

On Calvary's Hill #Review #FCBlogger #Christian #Books


About

It's early in the final week. The props and players for Friday's drama are in position. Five-inch spikes are in the bin. A cross-beam leans against a shed wall. The players are nearing the stage--Pilate, Annas and Caiaphas, Judas, the centurions. Players and props. Only this is no play; it's a divine plan. A plan begun before Adam felt heaven's breath, and now all heaven waits and watches. All eyes are on one figure--the Nazarene. 
 Join bestselling author Max Lucado in an exploration of the final days in the life of Christ. In On Calvary's Hill, you'll draw near to the Savior and prepare to celebrate the greatest miracle ever conceived through 40 devotional readings that feature Scripture verses, prayer prompts, and favorite passages from many of Lucado's best-selling books.

My Review

With short and quick chapters, this book is not meant to be read in one sitting. Each chapter starts with a bible verse, ending with a time of reflection and prayer. In the days leading up to Easter, I have found On Calvary's Hill to be the perfect devotional. Comprised of passages from some of Max Lucado's other writings (including No Wonder They Call Him the Savior, He Chose the Nails, and 3:16) this little (but powerful) book walks us through the the last days, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Max speaks on such a personal level that we all can grasp the true meaning and purpose behind the Cross.

One of my favorite chapters, "An Anchor for Your Soul" is simply incredible:
"God is on a cross. The Creator of the universe is being executed."
"It is no normal six hours...it is no normal Friday."
"Let me ask you a question: What do you do with that day in history? What do you do with its claims?"
Powerful.

Keep It Shut: What to Say, How to Say It, and When to Say Nothing at All #Review #FCBlogger #Christian #Books







As an official Family Christian Blogger, I received a copy of "Keep It Shut" to review. 

All opinions/pictures are my own. 



About Keep It Shut


Keep It Shut by Karen Ehman explores how to better control your tongue, knowing what to say and how to say it, and realizing when it is best to say nothing at all.


I am quite the talker.

Not in every situation, but in most. Some would say it's a gift but, at times, it feels more like a curse. Especially when my feelings get hurt. And this was one of those days.

I had just received an email and I couldn't believe what I was reading. How dare they speak to me with such disrespect? They obviously didn't realize who they were speaking to. I wasn't always this sweet, Christian girl who held her tongue! I was going to let them have it - and I did.

The next day, in the mail, I received a copy of "Keep It Shut: What To Say, How To Say It, And When To Say Nothing At All".

As I began to read, something came over me. It was in that very moment that I wished I could have taken back that email. Not that everything I said wasn't true, because it was. But was it necessary? Did I respond out of love or out of anger and hurt? Did I respond the way Christ would have had me? Surely not.

Karen Ehman's style of writing is so very personal. Much like me, she is a talker who has gotten herself into more than one painful situation. Using these situations, and those in the Bible, she invites us to examine our hearts and find our true motivations for what we say. She shows us how to "pause before [we] pounce" and avoid saying something permanently painful just because we are temporarily upset.

I have to be honest, my copy of this book looks like my study bible. It has markings in the margins, highlighted paragraphs, and underlined text. That's how good this book is. I wish every woman I know would read it and share it with their friends. I have absolutely seen a difference in the way I speak, and even the way I pray, since reading it. I have found more love in my heart towards others and a renewed humility in difficult situations. This book has enabled me to take a step back and re-examine myself in light of the Word of God.

This is my prayer: Teach me, Oh God, what is good and acceptable in your sight. Help me to make my speech laced with grace, as sweet as honey, and yet seasoned with salt. Let me be a light to others and show them Who You truly are, by my actions and words.

Stay in touch with all that Family Christian has to offer by visiting their Social Media pages!


Family Christian was kind enough to send me a copy of "Keep It Shut: What To Say, How To Say It, And When To Say Nothing At All", for review purposes, and I am so grateful. All opinions in this post are 100% my own and were not influenced in any way, shape or form.
