Sonidos Serranos

Sonidos Serranos: Sounds of the Sierras...
Reflecting some of my family's interests: God's wonderful creation (especially mountains and hills!), music, and language...

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB)

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

Not I, but Christ!

We sang a favorite hymn in church today... I'm struck with how appropriate it is as a prayer for parents of young children...

Not I, but Christ, be honored, loved, exalted;
Not I, but Christ, be seen, be known, be heard;
Not I, but Christ, in every look and action,
Not I, but Christ, in every thought and word.

O to be saved from myself, dear Lord!
O to be lost in Thee!
O that it may be no more I, dear Lord,
But Christ, that lives in me.

Not I, but Christ, to gently soothe in sorrow,
Not I, but Christ, to wipe the falling tear;
Not I, but Christ, to lift the weary burden,
Not I, but Christ, to hush away all fear.


Christ, only Christ, ere long will fill my vision;
Glory excelling soon, full soon I’ll see –
Christ, only Christ, my every wish fulfilling –
Christ, only Christ, my all in all to be.

Yes! I'm afraid my kids saw a lot of "me" today.

Last night I lay in bed, pondering how I'd fallen short -- and claiming God's forgiveness and grace... I'm so thankful that His mercies are new every morning. Great is HIS faithfulness!
