Lift Your Voice

paulaharrington I drove to work blaring “Days of Elijah” earlier in the week and would like to take this moment to apologize to those great folks who live on HWY 95 or those who may have passed me on the road and wondered if they needed to call 911 (I may have been dancing a little).

My rendition of this song isn’t nearly as good as the one listed below by Twila Paris. It’s one of my go-tos anytime I’m in the car or when I just need to get fired up about the important things.  My favorite line is in the chorus, “Lift your voice!”

Aren’t you tired of the drama, hate and negativity that saturate our days? Haven’t you grown weary of the pain and brokenness that threaten to steal our joy? I certainly have. Let’s resolve to fill this little part of the world with words of light. Let’s speak encouragement to each other. Let’s use this day to glorify God by the words we choose. Men, tell others what God has done for you. Women, tell others how God has blessed you! Quit leaving the preaching to the preachers. Every saved soul has the responsibility to preach Jesus and the hope that he has brought into our lives.


Dr. J.T. ParishA little boy came home from his first day in school and announced to his family that he did not plan to go back. When asked why he disliked school so much he replied, “I can’t read, and I can’t write, and they won’t let me talk.”

He had discovered that the school had certain rules that he would have to abide by, and the little first grader had not yet seen the value of rules. As far as he could see, the rules did only one thing – they restricted him from doing what he wanted to do – namely, to talk.

The Right Thing

Dr. J.T. ParishSimon Peter and his fellow disciples were experienced sailors but they found themselves in a storm on the Sea of Galilee that more than tested their skills. In the middle of the storm at the darkest hour Jesus came walking toward them. They had never seen anything like it. They thought He was a ghost. They were scared out of their wits.

Jesus called out to them and told them not to be afraid. His presence always calms fears. He said, “It is I.” Simon Peter said, “If it is you, bid me to come to you.” Jesus said, “Come.” Simon Peter stepped over the side of the boat and did a humanly impossible thing – he walked on the water. He did it in obedience to the Word of Jesus.

Everybody Else

Dr. J.T. ParishThe Sunday school teacher taught a class of nine year olds that Jesus told us to turn the other cheek when someone slaps us in the face. When he came out of the classroom he saw a little girl crying. He asked her what was wrong. She said, “Johnny hit me.” The teacher asked, “Why would he do that?” she said, “I hit him first.” When the teacher asked why she hit Johnny she explained that she asked him if he believed the lesson we had just heard, and he said, “yes.” “So I slapped him and he slapped me back!”

God's Specialty

Dr. J.T. ParishWe used to sing this chorus, “Got any rivers you think are uncrossable? Got any mountains you cannot tunnel through? God Specializes in things thought impossible. He can do what no other power can do!”

Uncrossable rivers, untunneled mountains, and impossible circumstances pretty well describe things that are quite common in this life.

If you haven’t found this to be your experience, just hang around, you haven’t lived long enough yet. You will someday meet a problem that has no human solution.

Everything Comes To Pass

Dr. J.T. ParishMost people are either in the middle of some problem, test or trial, or they are coming out of one, or just about to enter one. That is an observation of life made over a span of many years. My favorite phrase in the Bible is “it came to pass”. Everything in this world comes to pass.
If you are going through some trial, know this, it will pass. Things will not always be this way. Circumstances change and you will make it through. If you are in good times, enjoy every minute of it. Good times also come to pass. The truth is everything in this world is temporary. That is why we should not set our hearts on this world.
