I was at a friends house when he played Carroll Roberson’s songs, and this section was the result.
2. TV Show 544
I love Carroll Roberson’s western clothes and the old western town, and the whole feel of the setting, plus of course the songs and the music. I grew up loving the old west of America, and the cowboy shows on the TV still appeal to me more than all the rest.
3. Sheltered in the arms of God
This is an oldie but a goodie. Do you feel His arms around you? The other night as I got up to go to the washroom, I was in such terrible pain. I could hardly walk, and had to hang on door knobs and a book self to get there. I was so desperate, that as I sat on the toilet I cried: “Father help me in Jesus’ name.” Suddenly a feeling like a mist went through me from head to toe, and the terrible pain left my body. I was so relieved. It has been a long time since I experienced anything supernatural. It made me realize also that I must refer to God as “Father” in future. That is what Jesus taught us. Hallelujah.
One of our favorite songs. On the Wikipedia, I read that Carroll Roberson is a famous evangelist and singer, but I only heard about him a couple of weeks ago. So I am sharing this section for people around the world who may never have heard of him before.
Another lovely Arizona setting. Hey, I wish I could be in Arizona. I grew up in a dry country, and that feels more like home to me. Thanks Carroll and Donna for the nice singing.
The words in this song are very touching. There are many people who want to put you down, but Jesus wants to lift you up.
I had a record of Glen Campbell singing this song, and I notice that Carroll Roberson sings slightly different words. Glen Campbell sang that God will always say: “I forgive.” I never felt comfortable with those words, because it implied that we can do as we please, and God will always forgive. Carroll sing that God has: “The power to forgive.” That sounds better to me.
My favorite love song of worship to God the Father, sung so nicely with such beautiful pictures that inspire me to want to worship. In my travels, whenever I come to a beautiful place that God has created it makes me want to worship the Lord. Some of these pictures bring out that same feeling in me.
The other day I thought I may have hurt someones feelings, so I phoned her and apologized. She said I didn’t hurt her feelings, so I am glad. We need to always try and have everything right between us and God and our fellow human beings. Maybe even with our animals too!
This song digs deep. If other people could see inside what we really think and feel it could be a wake up call for us.
This is done very nicely as in an old western setting. At the moment I am reading a book about an old preacher I knew a long time ago, and it is a great blessing. It is called: “Lions that still roar” by Dr. Don Normand.
This is an old favorite song.
13. Just a closer walk with Thee
This was the very first song I sang in church. I memorized 4 verses and the chorus, and when I announced the name of the song, my mind went blank. So I sang the chorus a couple of times, and one verse came to me, then another. After the service one guy said he enjoyed the song, and I confessed I forgot two of the verses. He said he didn’t know. Then it dawned on me that nobody else knew. Years later I used to sing all my own songs, and it didn’t make any difference if I forgot the words, because nobody knew!
Another nice one.
15. Now I’m living on the mountain
This song blessed me greatly, and I played it over and over again. The music is truly beautiful, and the picture is so lovely.
16. His hand in mine
I first heard this one on an Elvis Presley record. It is such a lovely song.
17. He looked beyond my fault and saw my need
I first heard this one on a Jerry Lee Lewis record.
18. Life’s railway
An old favorite, and each singer adds a new meaning to it.
19. It is no secret
I remember singing this one on TV in Bulawayo back in 1965. All through the years this song goes through my mind.
20. Victory in Jesus
The first time I heard this hymn was in 1976, when we visited the United States of America for the first time. I think it was in a Church of God in West Virginia.
This hymn makes me think of the Billy Graham meetings.
22. Redeemed how I love to proclaim it
My mother used to sing this hymn.
23. I believe
I heard a pop singer sing this one at the Colloseum in Johannesburg back in the 70’s, and I was surprised at him singing a religious song.
My wife sings a hymn with the same name, but this one is different. The picture looks like the Golden Gate Bridge.
Peter said we are pilgrims and strangers.
26. If I could live my life over
I guess many of us wish we could live our lives over, and make lots of changes.
The title made me think of a Bill Gaither song. In the Bible it says that if any man be in Christ he is a new creature. Only Jesus can change people.
It made me think of the Bible saying, that without a vision, the people perish.
Many years ago I prayed for a guy in a wheel chair, and he climbed out of the wheel chair, and pushed it down the street. Then the church leaders wanted to kick me out of the church! When Paul had a similar experience at Lystra, they stoned him! Some thanks!
In the Bible it says that without faith, it is impossible to please God.
An interesting song. A million dollars could not buy us eternal life, but Jesus offers it to us free of charge.
