Bread for the Journey

Standing on the promises of Christ my King, thru eternal ages let His praises ring:
glory in the highest I will shout and sing, standing on the promises of God.

Standing on the promises that cannot fail, when the howling storms of doubt and fear assail,
by the living word of God I shall prevail, standing on the promises of God.

Standing on the promises of Christ my Lord, bound to Him eternally by love's strong cord,
overcoming daily with the Spirit's sword, standing on the promises of God.

Standing on the promises I now can perfect, present cleansing in the blood for me;
standing in the liberty where Christ makes free, standing on the promises of God.

Standing on the promises I cannot fail, listening every moment to the Spirit's call,
resting in my Savior as my all in all, standing on the promises of God.

CHORUS
Standing, standing, standing on the promises of God my Savior;
standing, standing, I'm standing on the promises of God.

Russel Kelso Carter 1849-1928

  2. OH Kathy. . just for me. .I felt as though God placed this on your heart for me and yet I know you had it ready ages ago. Isn't God so good that way?

  6. Hello to all the Mennonite Girls Can Cook team!

    I stumbled across the blog one day when I was looking for gluten-free recipes. This is a great blog! I love the recipes, but love the message more.

    Reading this blog has been a major prompt to dust off my relationship with God and draw closer to Him.

    Thank you, and keep blogging! It really makes a difference.
