i came across a site and read some beautiful letters that spoke to my heart. thought i would share with anyone who is interested .blessings

Whatever you are addicted to,
the tempter will come in that thing;
and when he can trouble you,
then he gets advantage over you,
and then you are gone.
Stand still in that which is pure, after you see yourselves;
and then mercy comes in.
After you see your thoughts, and the temptations,
do not think, but submit;
and then power comes.
Stand still in that which shows and discovers;
and there strength immediately comes.
And stand still in the light, and submit to it,
and the other will be hushed and gone;
and then content comes.
And when temptations and troubles appear,
sink down in that which is pure,
and all will be hushed, and fly away.
Your strength is to stand still, after you see yourselves;
whatever you see yourselves addicted to,
temptations, corruption, uncleanness, etc.
then you think you shall never overcome.
And earthly reason will tell you, what you shall lose;
pay no attention to that,
but stand still in the light that shows them to you,
and then strength comes from the Lord,
and help contrary to your expectation.
Then you grow up in peace, and no trouble shall move you.

I am one of those that wishes to read something nice. Thank you.

Selah sings a pretty good version of How Great Thou Art, also.

This is the second stanza;

When through the woods and forest glades I wander, and hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees, When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur, And hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze, Then sings my soul, my Savior God to thee, How great thou art, how great thou art!

Modern Christian songs are okay (I like Chris Rice), but some of the old hymns are pretty powerful! I personally like Selah's versions of these hymns. They are a good group. They put a LOT of passion behind their singing, unlike a lot of Gospel singers.
