“MOSES: A Man of Selfless Dedication”

Pastor Chuck Swindoll gives a detailed look at the life of Moses from his time spent in a basket on the Nile River to the early years in the palace of Pharaoh, his escape to the  Mosesbackside of the desert to his encounter with God at the burning bush, the deliverance of God’s people to the Red Sea exodus, and forty years of wandering in the wilderness with over a million people who sometimes sought his destruction. In MOSES: A Man of Selfless Dedication, Dr. Swindoll shares from Scripture Moses’ successes and failures, his good days and bad, his obedience to God and his disobedience, his every emotion from gladness to sadness, exuberance to melancholy, anger to forgiveness, and hate to love. A child who started out with so much potential, lost it all, was redeemed by God, used of God, and died in the presence of God, MOSES: A Man of Selfless Dedication reveals in a biographical sketch the bountiful mercy of God, His longsuffering towards man, His leading and guiding of those who will surrender their lives to Him and follow Him wherever He desires to take them, and His leading them home to be with Him forever.

An Inspiration to the End & Beyond

Hymns_That_Are_Important_to_UsJust days after this young mother and wife completed her first round of chemotherapy treatments at Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Atlanta she was back onstage in Tennessee singing selections from their just released CD, “Hymns That Are Important to Us,” with her husband and songwriter, Rory, of the music duo “Joey + Rory.”  A Gaither Production video hosted by Bill Gaither, a personal friend from Joey’s hometown, has been produced with Joey and Rory sharing how God has walked with them every step of the way through their most difficult time, and includes Joey singing such timeless classics as “I’ll Fly Away,” “I Need Thee Every Hour,” “How Great Thou Art,” “It is Well With My Soul,” among others. Within days of the taping in October 2015 Joey was told there was nothing more that could be done, her cancer was not responding to treatment. Joey passed from this life into the presence of her Savior on March 4, 2016.

View the Gaither video of Joey and Rory here. Rory’s blog containing pictures and videos keeping their fans abreast of the path they have been walking the last two years can be found here. Joey truly was an inspiration to all right up until she breathed her last. Her works do follow her and will for many years to come.
