This Weeks Devotion


Bill Yoder
* my thoughts and opinions only

Written by Stuart Hamblen. Radio personality, songwriter, cowboy singer, and motion picture actor. He appeared in ten movies with such stars as Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, and John Wayne. In 1949 he attended a Billy Graham tent meeting in Los Angeles at the request of his wife. The next morning he requested a meeting with the evangelist, which was granted. During their conversation Hamblen gave his life to the Lord.

He and his wife had been visiting their close neighbor. At one point he made the comment that it’s no secret what God can do in a man’s life. The neighbor suggested that he write about that thought. It’s beautiful. He did write about those thoughts. And who was their neighbor? John Wayne.

The chimes of time ring out the news, another day is through
Someone slipped and fell, was that some you?
You may have longed for added strength, your courage to renew
Do not be disheartened, for I bring hope to you

There is no night for in His light, you’ll never walk alone
Always feel at home, wherever you may roam
There is no power can conquer you, while God is on your side
Take him at his promise, don’t run away and hide


It is no secret what God can do, what He’s done for others He’ll do for you
With arms wide open He’ll pardon you
It is no secret what God can do

            “But, as it is written, What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love Him.”
1 Corinthians 2: 9 ESV
