He Giveth More Grace

Lately I heard that a dear lady who is awaiting cancer surgery has been reading my Pilgrim Scribblings (our sister site) and has been blessed during these uncertain days. Our prayer is that Christians and non-believers alike would be encouraged and uplifted by these random, scattered "scribblings".

Pilgrim Scribblings was born out of my own struggles and pain. When we turn our trials around and use them as stepping stones instead of stumbling blocks others can be enriched in their own walk with God. That is our prayer.

A singer who never ceases to bless my soul is Larry Ford. He has often appeared on the Gaither videos and his rich tenor voice can move me to tears. Of course the lyrics play a huge part as well.

Horatio Spafford wrote It Is Well With My Soul after tragically losing his daughters at sea. Click here to hear Larry Ford's powerful rendition of this beloved hymn. Then when you have been blessed by this song, click here to hear him sing He Giveth More Grace. I praise God that He often uses music to minister to our spirits.
(Note: With both of these links, the YouTube screen will come up and you may have to click on the screen again for the song to continue.)

May these wonderful hymns lift you up and give you a sense of His presence as you journey home.

~ David, the Pilgrim

He is a good singer David!
One time when the Blackwood Brothers Quartet was in Welland for a concert, Mom who was driving with Betty to the mall saw a big bus parked in the parking lot and a little man emerged from that bus and headed over to the Taco Bell. She got so excited.."There is the guy from the Bill Gaither Tapes!"
No, she didn't know "the guy's name but she sure did remember the song that he sang on that video, "Little Is Much When God Is In It"

Yeh it was Larry Ford all right!
Mom was just so happy to see him!

I am glad that through your own struggles and pains David that you created "Pilgrim Scribblings" and I am also thankful that you created Pilgrim Pals!....Love Terry
