Petra: ‘Let Everything That Hath Breath’ (Praise the Lord)

I became a Christian in 1974 while reading the Paul and Silas jailer story in Acts 16 mentioned in this song. It was clear to me they had what I wanted. I was trying to find the true source of being able to love others — the one true religion that worked, which I hadn’t found while studying in the Lutheran school system K-12. While in my senior year, I don’t know why, but I decided to start reading the Bible in Acts 1, which I still think is a great place to start.

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord
Let every creature under God’s sun praise the Lord
Let all the mountains, let all the valleys
Let all the hillsides sing of His glory
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord

Israel had a war to fight but the Lord showed them the secret
He said the battle this day is mine, but you must listen how to do it
Put your singers first in front of the rest
Let them praise and sing to me
And you will see the salvation of your God
And watch your enemies flee

Paul and Silas were thrown in jail
For preaching the gospel of Christ
Though in chains they praised His name singing songs in the night
Just then an earthquake shook the place and the chains and the doors were loosened
Then the jailer ran in scared to death and that day he found salvation

Wim Hof Cold Showers in Alaska — My Experience

I’ve been taking cold showers for at least a year. Alaska’s tap water is ideal at 41°F in winter and 46°F in summer.

My feet used to get cold outside, but now I can wear summer shoes (with screws for traction) with one pair of regular socks comfortably in slightly below zero Fahrenheit

My hands still get cold though, which I’m finally now theorizing may be because my arms and hands don’t spend much time in the cold water, which I’m going to now change, whereas the feet are in cold water during the entire shower.

As a child, playing outside for hours in Minnesota, and downhill skied without a mask. I frostbit my fingers, toes and nose, and thought they’d never improve.

My toes seem back to normal now at age-63, thanks to Wim Hof and Alaska’s cold tap water!

Life giving therapy that costs nothing!

Daniel Rodriguez: ‘I’ll Walk with God’ — “I’ll never walk alone while I walk with God”

I’ll Walk with God from this day on.
His helping hand I’ll lean upon.
This is my prayer, my humble plea,
May the Lord be ever with me.

There is no death, tho’ eyes grow dim.
There is no fear when I’m near to Him.
I’ll lean on Him forever
And He’ll forsake me never.

He will not fail me
As long as my faith is strong,
Whatever road I may walk along.

I’ll Walk with God, I’ll take His hand.
I’ll talk with God, He’ll understand.
I’ll pray to Him, each day to Him
And He’ll hear the words that I say.

His hand will guide my throne and rod
And I’ll never walk alone
While I walk with God.
