Artist, Christopher Powers, attends Bethlehem Baptist Church and Bethlehem College and Seminary in Minneapolis, MN, both of which have become very dear to Dana and I over the last several years through our children’s involvement in the same.  He has an unexpected and insightful, philosophy of art that declares the glory of God (Psalm 96:1-4).  View Powers’ other works on his website.  (Feel free to contribute if led.)

All I Have is Christ

v. 1
I once was lost in darkest night
Yet thought I knew the way
The sin that promised joy and life
Had led me to the grave
I had no hope that You would own
A rebel to Your will
And if You had not loved me first
I would refuse You still

v. 2
But as I ran my hell-bound race
Indifferent to the cost
You looked upon my helpless state
And led me to the cross
And I beheld God’s love displayed
You suffered in my place
You bore the wrath reserved for me
Now all I know is grace

Hallelujah! All I have is Christ
Hallelujah! Jesus is my life

Now, Lord, I would be Yours alone
And live so all might see
The strength to follow Your commands
Could never come from me
O Father, use my ransomed life
In any way You choose
And let my song forever be
My only boast is You.

Congratulations to our oldest son, Seth, who graduated today with a B.F.A in Illustration from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD).  Seth is one of the most talented, smartest, funniest, kind-hearted people I know.  Dad and I are very proud of your labors, achievements, and the person you have become, Seth!  You are yielded and seeking the Lord’s good hand in your life and that’s a very good place to be.  We pray blessings upon you, dear son.

Check out a sampling of Seth’s illustrations on his blog.  Did I mention he’s looking for good, honest illustration work?
