A Bit About me

Welcome to my personal weblog! I have many areas of interest as a Christian wife and home schooling mother of 6 girls: writing, poetry, website design, digital photography, a home business (sewing); however, this blog will focus more on the wonderful journey the Lord has brought our family through and what the Lord has shown me in His Holy Word.


I know that my devotionals don't often speak of specifics in our lives, but I want my readers to know that what I write comes most often from what the Lord is doing in our lives, or has done. I don't just repeat words by this preacher or that one. My devotionals are often written through a haze of tears, sometimes in grief, sometimes in peace at God's goodness for what He is doing for our good. At other times, after a flood of tears over my lack of faith in His great plan for us, especially after I've seen Heaven's gates open in another miraculous answer to prayer. What I write is what God shows me through those trials which He brings because of His great goodness as He works out His perfect plan. - Angela.

Banner

The Lord our Banner

The Lord Our Banner

(Jehovah-Nissi)

(Put to the tune of “The Fight Is On” – as written below the poem –
simply sing the original chorus between each stanza.)

The Lord Our Banner is the Christian’s rally cry!
Raise the standard; there’s battles to be fought,
Jehovah-Nissi is our Saviour from on High,
For without the Lord, the fight’s all for nought.

The battle is hard and the cost seems so very high –
The squeamish and faint of heart need not apply –
For our fight is not against swords, bows, or spears,
But against the Devil and our own fears.

Dear brethren, the war’s already been fought and won –
The battles are the Lord’s – we fight not alone.
One day soon, we’ll be glorified with God’s own Son –
Be steadfast and faithful ’til He takes us home.

The battles are wearisome; and many are the foes,
Stand fast, brethren – do not falter nor faint!
Jesus, our Saviour, Captain of Jehovah’s host,
Leads the final charge with thousands of His saints.

The Lord Our Banner, stands high upon the hill,
With our only weapon, the Word of God, held high.
The Lord will fight for us, and we need but stand still,
For the victory, our Lord will provide.

**********

A special thank you to Jerry Bouey
for the proofreading and much needed Scriptural input on this poem.

Taken from: Exodus 17:15
(Jehovah is my banner)

And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovahnissi:
For he said, Because the LORD hath sworn that the LORD
will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.

***************

He [Christ] shall not forever sit in waiting posture, but shall come into the fight to end the weary war by his own victorious presence. He will lead the final charge in person; his own right hand and his holy arm shall get unto him the victory. (Charles Spurgeon, The Treasury Of David)

The Fight is On

by Leila N. Morris

The fight is on, the trumpet sound is ringing out,
The cry “To arms!â€? is heard afar and near;
The Lord of hosts is marching on to victory,
The triumph of the Christ will soon appear.

Chorus

The fight is on, O Christian soldier,
And face to face in stern array,
With armor gleaming, and colors streaming,
The right and wrong engage today!
The fight is on, but be not weary;
Be strong, and in His might hold fast;
If God be for us, His banner o’er us,
We’ll sing the victor’s song at last!

The fight is on, arouse, ye soldiers brave and true!
Jehovah leads, and victory will assure;
Go buckle on the armor God has given you,
And in His strength unto the end endure.

Chorus

The Lord is leading on to certain victory;
The bow of promise spans the eastern sky;
His glorious Name in every land shall honored be;
The morn will break, the dawn of peace is nigh.
