I wish he would write more. For now I’ll just enjoy his preaching.

Are they listening to the same thing I am?

September 10, 2008

I know. More videos, less words. Bear with me. Although I was feeling a lot better yesterday, I’m feeling almost back to start today: not well.

So my question is, are John MacArthur and R.C. Sproul listening to the same stuff I am? This stuff is awesome.

Disclaimer:  I was speaking in sarcasm. Please, I beg you, don’t listen to these songs in their entirety. Although, be sure to check out the sweet dance number at the end of the second one. It’s worth watching but I don’t know if it’s worth watching the whole video for. Just skip to 1:50 on the counter. You’ll see.


YouTube is a funny thing.

We started here:

And within 4 clicks we were here:

I’m issuing a challenge. How far off track can you get in 5 clicks? You should comment with your beginning and ending video. Go.


6 years running…

You all know my best bud, Augie.

Here he is back in 2003 when he won the California State Contest for the first time.

So I just got off the phone with him and today he extended his reign as California’s hero. Ahhh, if only his unfortunate competitors had realized on that fateful day that the meek geek with glasses and sweet gelled hair was going to best them that year and the five following, maybe they wouldn’t have gotten their hopes up. Ah well. There’s always next year. Yeah. Right.

Congrats Augie.


It Is Well With My Soul

August 5, 2008

 

When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say,
It is well, it is well, with my soul. 

It is well, with my soul,
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blessed assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul. 

It is well, with my soul,
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul! 

It is well, with my soul,
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

And Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,
Even so, it is well with my soul.

It is well, with my soul,
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

Lord, I am far too richly blessed to be anything short of content and thankful. Forgive me for my failures in this regard and please continue to work on me. Thank you for the ability to even praise your name. You are far too good to me. Thank you. Amen.


Giant Steps

I kinda laughed at the part they labeled “Piano Solo”. Let’s be real. They’re just givin Coltrane a chance to catch his breath. Great video.
