Good Night My Love (by Fenny West)

Good night my Love

You are a gem, a jewel

Clearly a gift from above

A diamond out from a shelł.

 

Good night my Love

Sleep well, sweet dreams

You are just gold, my dove

Together we’re a good team.

 

Good night, Apple of my eyes

You need a well- deserved rest

You’re a prize worth the price

You’re cream of the crop- simply the best.

“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.”

Peaks and Troughs ( By Fenny West)

Peaks and troughs Greet the weak or Tough

Surely, Peaks and troughs

will greet weak or tough

and that’s a fact of life-

a sure fight in this life.

We must all prepare

And then persevere

To face with fight or flight

Doing what may or may not be right.

It is important to know what is right

When all around is night

It is important to know that the day will come

For you too who sits in the night – you day will come.

So do not throw in the towel

Because it shall be well

Before long you too will have a song-

A song that will be very long.

Surely, Peaks and troughs

will greet weak or tough.

23   Therefore let them give us two bulls; and let them choose one bull for themselves, cut it in pieces, and lay it on the wood, but put no fire under it; and I will prepare the other bull, and lay it on the wood, but put no fire under it.

24   Then you call on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the LORD; and the God who answers by fire, He is God.” So all the people answered and said, “It is well spoken.”

25   Now Elijah said to the prophets of Baal, “Choose one bull for yourselves and prepare it first, for you are many; and call on the name of your god, but put no fire under it.

26   So they took the bull which was given them, and they prepared it, and called on the name of Baal from morning even till noon, saying, “O Baal, hear us!” But there was no voice; no one answered. Then they leaped about the altar which they had made.

27   And so it was, at noon, that Elijah mocked them and said, “Cry aloud, for he is a god; either he is meditating, or he is busy, or he is on a journey, or perhaps he is sleeping and must be awakened.”

28   So they cried aloud, and cut themselves, as was their custom, with knives and lances, until the blood gushed out on them.

29   And when midday was past, they prophesied until the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice. But there was no voice; no one answered, no one paid attention.

30   Then Elijah said to all the people, “Come near to me.” So all the people came near to him. And he repaired the altar of the LORD that was broken down.

31   And Elijah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, to whom the word of the LORD had come, saying, “Israel shall be your name.”

32   Then with the stones he built an altar in the name of the LORD; and he made a trench around the altar large enough to hold two seahs of seed.

33   And he put the wood in order, cut the bull in pieces, and laid it on the wood, and said, “Fill four waterpots with water, and pour it on the burnt sacrifice and on the wood.”

34   Then he said, “Do it a second time,” and they did it a second time; and he said, “Do it a third time,” and they did it a third time.

35   So the water ran all around the altar; and he also filled the trench with water.

36   And it came to pass, at the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near and said, “LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, let it be known this day that You are God in Israel and I am Your servant, and that I have done all these things at Your word.

37   Hear me, O LORD, hear me, that this people may know that You are the LORD God, and that You have turned their hearts back to You again.”

38   Then the fire of the LORD fell and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood and the stones and the dust, and it licked up the water that was in the trench.

39   Now when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces; and they said, “The LORD, He is God! The LORD, He is God!”

40    And Elijah said to them, “Seize the prophets of Baal! Do not let on

1Kings 18:23-40

1 Kings 19: Elijah Escapes from Jezebel

1     And Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, also how he had executed all the prophets with the sword.

2     Then Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, “So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I do not make your life as the life of one of them by tomorrow about this time.”

3     And when he saw that, he arose and ran for his life, and went to Beersheba, which belongs to Judah, and left his servant there.

4     But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a broom tree. And he prayed that he might die, and said, “It is enough! Now, LORD, take my life, for I am no better than my fathers!”

5     Then as he lay and slept under a broom tree, suddenly an angel touched him, and said to him, “Arise and eat.”

6     Then he looked, and there by his head was a cake baked on coals, and a jar of water. So he ate and drank, and lay down again.

7     And the angel of the LORD came back the second time, and touched him, and said, “Arise and eat, because the journey is too great for you.”

8     So he arose, and ate and drank; and he went in the strength of that food forty days and forty nights as far as Horeb, the mountain of God.

9     And there he went into a cave, and spent the night in that place; and behold, the word of the LORD came to him, and He said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”

10   So he said, “I have been very zealous for the LORD God of hosts; for the children of Israel have forsaken Your covenant, torn down Your altars, and killed Your prophets with the sword. I alone am left; and they seek to take my life.”

God’s Revelation to Elijah

11   Then He said, “Go out, and stand on the mountain before the LORD.” And behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake;

12   and after the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice.

13   So it was, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle and went out and stood in the entrance of the cave. Suddenly a voice came to him, and said, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”

14   And he said, “I have been very zealous for the LORD God of hosts; because the children of Israel have forsaken Your covenant, torn down Your altars, and killed Your prophets with the sword. I alone am left; and they seek to take my life.”

 

 

!Kings19:1-14

Walking in the Light

God is lightWalking in the light

Is the way of Life.

Does not come by might

But through surrender

To the Word of Life.

Walking in the night

Will surely bring death,

And what a great plight!

Oh, what a plunder!

Darkness deals sure death.

So let’s walk in Love;

Walk in obedience

Like light from above

Then comes His presence

With fullness of Joy.

The Test of Knowing Him

3     Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments.

4     He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

5     But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him.

6     He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.

7     Brethren, I write no new commandment to you, but an old commandment which you have had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which you heard from the beginning.

8     Again, a new commandment I write to you, which thing is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing away, and the true light is already shining.

9     He who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness until now.

10   He who loves his brother abides in the light, and there is no cause for stumbling in him.

11   But he who hates his brother is in darkness and walks in darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.

1John2:5-11
