He Giveth More Grace

Lately I heard that a dear lady who is awaiting cancer surgery has been reading these Pilgrim Scribblings 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

  1. I have always loved both of these hymns, and as far as He Giveth More Grace goes, I especially love the second verse:

    "When we have exhausted our store of endurance,
    When our strength has failed ere the day is half done,
    When we reach the end of our hoarded resources
    Our Father’s full giving is only begun"
