Why Ebenezer?

One of my favorite hymns is Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing. I particularly like the verse: “Here I raise my Ebenezer, hither by Thy help I’ve come. And I hope by Thy good pleasure safely to arrive at home.”

This life is a journey toward an eternal home. For me that home is Heaven. Each step of the way I have been led and guided by the Hand of my Savior. He has never led me astray, even when I diverted from his path.      Jar of stones

Ebenezer’s are stones of remembrance. It is my hope that when I arrive safely at Home that I will have left a legacy that is more than a jar full of stones, but also a pile of “living stones” that point to the way God was faithful in big and small ways to me all the days of my life.
