  • Facebook muistutteli tämmöisestä muistosta, joten aivan pakko suositella tätä kirjaa!! Jos siis kaipaat kesälukemista, nyt kun kirjastotkin on avautunut, niin tässä on upea ja omaa vaellusta vahvistava tosikertomus Jumalan ihmeistä 🙏🙏
.
John Newton, Amazing Grace virren kirjoittaja, oli nuoruudessaan orjalaivan kapteeni, vanhemmalla iällä pappi ja vahvasti mukana orjakaupan vastaisten lakien läpi ajamisessa.
. 
Koskettava hetki oli kirjassa Newtonin viimeiset tallennetut sanat: "Muistini on lähes mennyt, mutta muistan selkeästi kaksi asiaa: minä olen suuri syntinen, ja Kristus on suuri Vapahtaja". 💞✝️

  • Original : 'Amazing Grace', John Newton, 1779⁣
Remake : 'My Chains Are Gone' Chris Tomlin, 2006⁣
⁣
⁣
There are 'great hymns', and then within that is a special enclave of titles which must surely include today's.⁣
⁣
Chris Tomlin was one of the pioneers in making hymns more accessible, and I often wonder how he must have felt when he decided he would tackle one as venerated as Amazing Grace. To be sure, he's done a fine job, and 'My Chains Are Gone' is well nigh popular, but in the beginning did he think he might be pelted with stones or sent death threats for daring to rework this hymn? ⁣
⁣
My chains are gone, I've been set free⁣
My God, my Saviour, has ransomed me⁣
And like a flood His mercy rains⁣
Unending love, amazing grace⁣
⁣
Let us never change for change's sake, but neither let us be chained to history, tradition and antiquity.⁣

  • Satan still desires to have me, that he might sift me as wheat; but my Saviour has prayed for me, that my faith may not fail. Here is my security and power; a bulwark against which the gates of hell cannot prevail.
~ John Newton
▫️▫️▫️
“Simon, Simon, behold, Satan demanded to have you, that he might sift you like wheat, but I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.”
Luke 22:31‭-‬32

which is why I suffer as I do. But I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed, and I am convinced that he is able to guard until that day what has been entrusted to me.
2 Timothy 1:12

  • Let us love and sing and wonder,
let us praise the Savior's name!
He has hushed the law's loud thunder,
he has quenched Mount Sinai's flame:
he has washed us with his blood,
he has brought us nigh to God.

Let us love the Lord who bought us,
pitied us when enemies,
called us by his grace and taught us,
gave us ears and gave us eyes:
he has washed us with his blood,
he presents our souls to God.

Let us sing, though fierce temptation
threaten hard to bear us down!
For the Lord, our strong salvation,
holds in view the conqu'ror's crown:
he who washed us with his blood
soon will bring us home to God.

Let us wonder; grace and justice
join and point to mercy's store;
when thro' grace in Christ our trust is,
justice smiles and asks no more:
he who washed us with his blood
has secured our way to God.

Let us praise, and join the chorus
of the saints enthroned on high;
here they trusted him before us,
now their praises fill the sky:
"You have washed us with your blood;
you are worthy, Lamb of God!" John Newton #hymn #solasmediaph #johnnewton

  • This quote is from a humorous poem written by William Cowper to Lady Austen (he asks her to set it to a tune). The poetic-anecdote is set in Clifton Reynes, a village near by to Olney. Read it for yourself below: ⁠
•⁠
•⁠
⁠
I.⁠
I sing of a journey to Clifton,⁠
We would have perform’d if we could,⁠
Without cart of barrow to lift on⁠
Poor Mary and me through the mud;⁠
Slee, sla, slud,⁠
Stuck in the mud,⁠
Oh it is pretty to wade through a flood!⁠
⁠
II.⁠
So away we went, slipping and sliding,⁠
Hop, hop, a la mode de deux frogs.⁠
'Tis near as good walking as riding,⁠
When ladies are dress'd in their clogs.⁠
Wheels, no doubt,⁠
Go briskly about,⁠
But they clatter and rattle, and make such a rout!⁠
⁠
III.⁠
SHE:⁠
Well! now I protest it is charming;⁠
How finely the weather improves!⁠
That cloud, though, is rather alarming;⁠
How slowly and stately it moves!⁠
⁠
HE:⁠
Pshaw! never mind;⁠
'Tis not in the wind;⁠
We are travelling south, and shall leave it behind.⁠
⁠
IV.⁠
SHE:⁠
I am glad we are come for an airing,⁠
For folks may be pounded and penn'd,⁠
Until they grow rusty, not caring⁠
To stir half a mile to an end.⁠
⁠
HE:⁠
The longer we stay,⁠
The longer we may;⁠
It's a folly to think about weather or way.⁠
⁠
V.⁠
SHE:⁠
But now I begin to be frighted:⁠
If I fall, what a way I should roll!⁠
I am glad that the bridge was indicted.--⁠
Stop! stop! I am sunk in a hole!⁠

  • Gardening is a fantastic thing to do with the kids, lockdown or not, and you don't need a garden! As this week is #NationalChildrensGardeningWeek , now is a better time than ever to have a go. Why not try growing cress in egg shells (add googly eye to the shell for extra fun) or try making a herb garden to put in your window sill! @nationalchildrensgardeningweek ⁠

  • Day 3 of my #60DayChallenge

John Newton's autobiography "Out of the Depths" is the remarkable account of the former slave master who, "through many dangers, toils, and snares," came to discover the saving mercies of God through Jesus Christ. 
Starting from his childhood and tracing through his early expeditions out at sea with his father, and afterwards setting out on his own voyage aboard the Harwich headed for the African coast, Newton's pre-conversion life was marked by many lively impressions of religion; yet, in his own words: "I saw the necessity of religion as a means of escaping hell, but I loved sin, and was unwilling to forsake it" (page 26). As he gradually lost his grip on religion, he in turn viewed himself as abandoned by God. "The Lord had now to all appearances given me up to judicial hardness; I was capable of anything. I had not the least fear of God before my eyes..." (page 43). Yet, it was only through Newton's perilous journeys at sea that he came to understand the loving forbearance of God, and how His hand was ultimately working all things together for his good.

Newton was, as the Apostle, "in journeyings and deaths often," yet the Lord delivered him out of them all. I appreciate the lyrics to "Amazing Grace" more now that I've read through this book. I highly recommend this to all believers, it's an excellent read!

  • “I’m here to fight for truth, justice and the American way.” - Superman
-
-
-
During the promotion of Superman 3 Chris Reeve sad in an interview that from his point of view Superman was allways about the idea of a friend that is always there when he’s needed, except of course he still fight for truth, justice and the American way, but he wanted to keep the purity of that idea clear in all three films no matter what’s the story like. Unfortunetely he also mentioned that this is the last Superman film he’s done and reffered to a Bond movies which were really great only first three in his eyes and he did not wanted to go any further when there was nowhere else to go, which was sadly true and more sadly we all know that this was not the last Superman film he did but even if he did not took the part in Superman 4, Cannon group would probably replace him with another actor and Superman on the big screen would be doomed anyway because of that film.

  • Oh! For a closer walk with God, ⁠
A calm and heav’nly frame;⁠
A light to shine upon the road⁠
That leads me to the Lamb!⁠

Where is the blessedness I knew⁠
When first I saw the Lord?⁠
Where is the soul-refreshing view⁠
Of Jesus, and his word?⁠

  • A reminder of an early example of self-isolation to show that nothing is entirely new under the sun: In 1771 William Cowper and Mary Unwin took refuge in the Bull Inn to get away from a smallpox outbreak among the servants at Orchard Side. John Newton asked in a letter how life was with the Bulls and the Bears since the alehouse next door (the cottage next to the Bull on the north) was the Dog and Bear (later the Saracen's Head). Presumably the servants were in lockdown together at home.⁠

  • During these troublesome times, it has been amazing to see so many people take comfort from Amazing Grace. Pat Allerton (@theportablepriest) has been playing the hymn around London to keep up moral, so we simply had to share a clip for this week's Amazing Grace Tuesday clip!⠀

  • Yesterday Scott reminded us that if we can see God working some things together for good in the present, we can trust He is working all things together for good in the future. If you missed this sermon on Romans 8:28-30 you can check it out at the link in our bio!

  • Ini adalah salah satu lagu yang paling senang untuk ku nyanyikan. Meskipun telah berumur ratusan tahun, namun lagu ini masih tetap bertahan dan selalu dinyanyikan didalam Gereja. Hal itu bisa terjadi karena keindahan dari liriknya (Versi Inggris lebih dalam maknanya), kisah dibalik lagunya dan yang pasti kisah dari sang pengarang lagu ini. Sang pengaran yang bernama John Newton memiliki kehidupan kelam yang begitu jahat namun dipertobatkan oleh Tuhan lalu menyerahkan dirinya sebagai seorang pelayan Tuhan seumur hidupnya. Salah satu buah yang indah dari pertobatannya adalah terciptanya lagu yang begitu indah ini. Yang mau tau cerita John Newton cari sendiri digoogle yah hehe.

Thank you @gresiojanuardo untuk permainan keyboardnya dan @erwant_ yg sudah membantu mengedit 😁 tetap jaga kesehatan disana dan tetap kuat iman didalam Kristus.

Selamat mendengarkan suara saya yg kadang masih fals ini 😂

God Bless You All 🙏

  • Frances Nichols, Legge’s wife, was probably one of the wealthiest heiresses of her day, with a reported £100,000 dowry! Her property portfolio included the Great House in Olney (pictured) where Newton held many religious meetings with towns people from 1769 (Cowper's ‘Jesus! Where’re Thy people meet’ & Newton's 'On Opening a Place for Social Prayer' were written to celebrate this occasion). She also had a fascinating past of her own: her grandfather, Colonel George Gounter, had planned and helped the future Charles II escape from Shoreham by boat after the battle of Worcester.⁠

  • “General Newton commanding the army forces at Key West, received information that his pickets at Cape Sable, [Fla.], had captured a boat containing 7 white persons and 1 colored, all armed, and to appearance, persons of importance. They had embarked at Crystal River, pulling and sailing along the coast of Florida during the night and secreting themselves during the day. Their object was to get to Havana…Not having been received at Key West, it is not known who they are. Their conduct looks suspicious and leads to the supposition that they were men of importance in the so-called Confederacy, and that many of the names given are fictitious.

  • Graça maravilhosa! Quão doce é o som
Que salvou um miserável como eu
Uma vez eu estava perdido, mas agora fui encontrado
Era cego, mas agora eu vejo

Foi a graça que ensinou meu coração a temer
E a graça meus medos aliviou
Quão preciosa foi a aparição da graça
Na hora em que eu acreditei

Através de muitos perigos, lutas e armadilhas
Eu já vim
Essa graça me trouxe a salvo até agora
E a graça me levará para casa
E a graça me levará para casa

Quando estivemos lá dez mil anos
Brilhando como o Sol
Não temos menos dias para cantar louvores a Deus
Do que quando começamos

Graça maravilhosa! Quão doce é o som
Que salvou um miserável como eu!
Uma vez eu estava perdido, mas agora fui encontrado
Fui cego, mas agora eu vejo
Fui cego, mas agora eu vejo ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now I'm found
Was blind, but now I see

T'was grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace, my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come
'Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far
And grace will lead me home
And grace will lead me home

When we've been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we've first begun

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now I'm found
Was blind, but now I see
Was blind, but now I see

Esse tem sido meu hino preferido há meses. Ele trouxe e continua trazendo consolo para meu coração toda vez que ele se encontra aflito e sobrecarregado.
Graças a Deus podemos nos lembrar dessa Graça Maravilhosa que está sobre nós.. nos dias bons ou maus. Ela continua sendo suficiente. (2Coríntios 12.9) 💙🙏🏻

  • 19th Century English Globe by Renowned Cartographers John Newton and Son. An extremely rare and important 21 inch English globe by renowned cartographers John Newton and Son, one of the most important globe makers of early 19th century England. Representing the terrestrial landscapes, this sphere rests in its gorgeous mahogany Stand, displaying a rich patina. Newton and Son were also one of the few firms to combine instruments with globes. In this globe, the compass is set in the base of the stand to complete the design, while a tilting angle of 90 degrees on this globe makes for ease of viewing. This globe is even more unusual for its size: Not only were globes rarely crafted with a 21 inch diameter, but the surface area of a globe this size is an incredible 307% larger than that of a more common 12 inch globe. To own these globes was to have a wealth of information at one’s fingertips. Rendered in painstaking detail, this globe presents scientific understanding of the world and sky that would have been invaluable to all areas of business, including shipping, geography, and especially exploration.

Terrestrial: circa 1852.

The firm of Newton & Son is considered to be among the leading manufacturers of Fine 19th century globes and are well represented in museums around the world. During the 19th century, the firm, led by the Newton family of cartographers, occupied a leading position the production of globes in London, crafting floor standing, table and pocket globes. Its founder was John Newton, the product of generations of globe making apprenticeships. Founded in 1780, Newton & Son published its first globe in 1783, a pocket globe using copper plates struck by the legendary Nathaniel Hill in 1754.  #antique #antiques #antiqueshop #antiquesforsale #antiquestore #modern #art #globe #furniture #furnituredesign #furnitureartist #decor #decoration #newton #19thcentury #johnnewton

  • It’s official! 🎉 Students have chosen Corrie ten Boom as the final namesake for the TCA House System!

The House of ten Boom will forever honor the legacy of this incredibly faithful woman who hid Jews during the Holocaust, was captured and suffered for her efforts, and who later forgave her persecutors. We can hardly think of a better model for our students!

From Perpetua, to Alfred the Great, to John Newton, and now Corrie ten Boom, our House System extends across the ancient to late modern times. All TCA students can look forward to calling one of these houses home as they enter the Upper School.

Many exciting things are happening at our growing school! We look forward with anticipation to see what God will do in these houses and in the lives of young men and women who will build them!

  • I was recently introduced to a new to me daily devotional. It is a compilation of writings by John Newton. A preacher and hymn writer and abolitionist.

Of course you might know him as the  writer of amazing Grace. Or you might know him from the movie by the same title about William Wilberforce. 
The writings that I have read so far have been fully focused on Christ and his work.

So many times the devotionals that I read are more focused on man. That also goes for the majority of the Christian songs that I hear on the radio or in churches. 
a recent song that I've been listening to is called The glorious Christ by sovereign Grace. And I told my husband that it is one of the better songs basically because it tells us to focus on Christ not ourselves.  When I sing songs about God I want them to focus on him and not on me because I spend so much time of my life focusing on me. I need to turn my gaze toward Christ.

I hope that we will all turn our gaze toward the one who has set us free.

If you are interested in my top two daily devotionals like year round they are new morning mercies by Paul Tripp and this one which is called jewels from John Newton.  I will talk about them later today and my stories if you're interested.

  • ¿Eres mamá? 
Te recomiendo que leas este libro 📖 🌱Es un pequeño libro que puede traerte mucha esperanza en medio del día a día criando a tus hijos. 🌱Son pequeñas historias sobre la influencia que tuvieron ciertas madres cristianas en la enseñanza del evangelio y sus fervientes oraciones por sus hijos. 🌱Sus oraciones y diligencia en enseñar la Palabra De Dios tanto leída como vivida a sus hijos tuvo su resultado. Muchas veces no inmediato, y sus hijos tuvieron que pasar por las consecuencias de sus pecados pero la mano De Dios no se alejó de ellos.
🌱Dios llegó a hacer de ellos hombres que por el poder del Espíritu Santo pudieron ser predicadores, misioneros y evangelistas.
🌱¿Crees que solo eres una mujer común y corriente? Piénsalo dos veces. 
Si eres hija De Dios eres importante para El y El te quiere usar como instrumento de gracia la vida de tus hijos para llevar a cabo Su plan redentor en ellos.
🌱Pídele a Dios que te ayude a rendir tu vida y la de tus hijos a Él, que El te de la gracia necesaria para cada día y que en las fuerzas de El puedas sembrar la semilla del evangelio en sus vidas. El resultado no dependerá de ti, El resultado lo dará el Señor. Pero si lucha por ser diligente en orar, enseñar y modelar una vida piadosa y de rendición completa al Señor🙏🏼

  • ¿Eres mamá?
    Te recomiendo que leas este libro 📖 🌱Es un pequeño libro que puede traerte mucha esperanza en medio del día a día criando a tus hijos. 🌱Son pequeñas historias sobre la influencia que tuvieron ciertas madres cristianas en la enseñanza del evangelio y sus fervientes oraciones por sus hijos. 🌱Sus oraciones y diligencia en enseñar la Palabra De Dios tanto leída como vivida a sus hijos tuvo su resultado. Muchas veces no inmediato, y sus hijos tuvieron que pasar por las consecuencias de sus pecados pero la mano De Dios no se alejó de ellos.
    🌱Dios llegó a hacer de ellos hombres que por el poder del Espíritu Santo pudieron ser predicadores, misioneros y evangelistas.
    🌱¿Crees que solo eres una mujer común y corriente? Piénsalo dos veces.
    Si eres hija De Dios eres importante para El y El te quiere usar como instrumento de gracia la vida de tus hijos para llevar a cabo Su plan redentor en ellos.
    🌱Pídele a Dios que te ayude a rendir tu vida y la de tus hijos a Él, que El te de la gracia necesaria para cada día y que en las fuerzas de El puedas sembrar la semilla del evangelio en sus vidas. El resultado no dependerá de ti, El resultado lo dará el Señor. Pero si lucha por ser diligente en orar, enseñar y modelar una vida piadosa y de rendición completa al Señor🙏🏼
