Why Should I Sorrow More?

Posted by in Hymns, Music

WHY should I sorrow more? I trust a Savior slain, And safe beneath His sheltering cross Unmoved I shall remain.

He did it by being cursed. “Christ redeemed us…read more

When a man’s folly brings his way to ruin, his heart rages against the Lord. Proverbs 19:3 It amazes me every day people that blame God for their trouble.  Couple things in this verse stand out to me. Man’s folly: This is man’s doing, his sin, his efforts, his action, not God’s. Man’s way: This is not the way of the righteous and it is NOT God’s way, this is man causing trouble for man’s plans. Man’s ruin:  “Give um enough rope they will hang themselves” was the advice I got as…read more
