Wednesday's Wisdom

Before I got on the exercise bike last night I put an Alan Jackson CD on to play.  Yes, I sing along, and yes, it's not pretty!! lol...anyway, I love this old church hymn.  As I sang along I was thinking, there's some wisdom here!

Standing on the promises of Christ my King,
Through eternal ages let his praises ring;
Glory in the highest, I will shout and sing,
Standing on the promises of God.

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

Standing on the promises I cannot fall,
Listening every moment to the Spirit's call,
Resting in my Savior as my all in all,
Standing on the promises of God.

There is so much wisdom in that last verse. 

Stand with Him

Listen to Him

Rest in Him


Until Next Time

  7. I love the old hymns, the ones I played as pianist at church when I was a younger. I also love to read the stories behind how the hymns came to be written.
    I have several Alan Jackson cd's. Love his voice.
    Wishing you a blessed Mother's Day.

  8. I LOVE that old hymn. And I hope that you were standing while singing! You cannot sing "Standing on the Promises" while "sitting on the premises"....How many song leaders and/or preachers have used that line to get us standing to sing this song? But most importantly...standing on God's Promises is a very wonderful place to stand...secure in His love and saving grace...no better place to be!!
