This guy…He was cut off completely from everything & everyone he’s ever loved
No support system. No hope. Disfigured and decomposing, the man with palsy was with chronic and the incurable—
and everyone believing he deserved it—so it wasn’t just fear from others, it was also shame.
What was there to look forward to? Could hope even be found w/ something so impossible?
Somehow the man “full of leprosy,” was able to dig deep to find whatever little bit of anything that was l
PLEASE, LISTEN TO ME! Here is the truth.. ‘O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?” was NOT in response to Peter’s sinking. It was not a jab to his faltering. Christ was not making a negative comment to make him to feel bad about his efforts, missteps or shortcomings. It was an immediate & loving response to Peter’s pleadings to be saved! “Lord, save me!” —“Wherefore didst thou doubt?”

I tried to get a mix of a little bit of everything in here. Some of the songs I wanted to add aren’t on YouTube, so this will have to do as a good starting place. I did create a YouTube Playlist, but some of the songs I linked to are part of a very long compilation upload and you’d have to listen (or watch) the Playlist to know when songs start playing that I didn’t intend to include, (if that makes sense).
