His booming baritone voice delivered the Gospel of Jesus Christ to millions of Christians at Billy Graham’s crusades. Shea was known for his trademark renditions of “How Great Thou Art” and “The Wonder of It All.”shea1

“I first met Bev Shea while in Chicago when he was on Moody Radio,” said Billy Graham in a prepared statement. “As a young man starting my ministry, I asked Bev if he would join me. He said yes and for over 60 years we had the privilege of ministering together across the country and around the world. Bev was one of the most humble, gracious men I have ever known and one of my closest friends. I loved him as a brother.”

Shea won a Grammy in 1965, was nominated 10 times and in 2011 he was presented a Lifetime Achievement Award.

Shea first sang for Billy Graham in 1943 on the Chicago radio hymn program, “Songs in the Night.” Since that day, he sang Gospel songs on every continent and every station in the nation. He preceded Graham’s Crusade messages in nearly every meeting for more than a half century.

“Even though Bev was 10 years older than my father, he never acted his age,” said Franklin Graham. “He was absolute fun to be with. Bev was one of the most gracious and unassuming men I have known. He was always encouraging and supportive, a man of deep faith and strong commitment to Jesus Christ.”

She was born in Winchester, Ontario, Canada, where his father was a Wesleyan Methodist minister. Shea’s first public singing was in the choir of his father’s church. His career included hundreds of concerts and more than 70 albums of sacred music.

When Shea was 23 he composed the music to one of the nation’s most beloved hymns – “I’d Rather Have Jesus.”

Shea is survived by his wife, Karlene, and his children from his first marriage, Ronald and Elaine. He was preceded in death by his first wife, Erma, who died in 1976.

Doamne, tacerea Ta ma doare -poezie crestina (Angela I.E.)

904568_498120053581367_1143381410_o

Published on Apr 16, 2013

Doamne, tacerea Ta ma doare
Si-n noptiile tarzii de veghe,
M-ascund incet printre stele
Si-Ti caut fata Ta, da, Fata Ta.

Atatea se framanta-n mine
Si-adun amar peste amar.
Acolo, intr-un colt tacuta,
Inima, ar vrea sa zboare iar.

Ar vrea sa se reverse ca un ocean,
Sa Te cuprinda-n brate, sa Te sarute.
O, dar parca esti asa departe, departe,
Si dorul ei se stinge, si-ncet primeste pace.

Tu nu-mi raspunzi asa ca altadata
Si nici nu vii asa cum esti dorit,
Caci taine multe Tu ascunzi in Tine
Si doar credinta stie ca tanjesc….

Sunt inimi frante, pline de durere
Care Te-asteapta sa vi cat mai curand.
Caci lumea, viata si tot ce ne-nconjoara
Nu stiu ce-nseamna numele Isus

17 Aprilie – Să nu vi se tulbure inima!

– „Vă las pacea, vă dau pacea Mea. Nu v-o dau cum o dă lumea. Să nu vi se tulbure inima, nici să nu se înspăimânte.“ Ioan 14.27

În ce împrejurare se găseau ucenicii când Domnul le-a spus: „Să nu vi se tulbure inima“? Domnul mergea la moarte. Venise ceasul să plece din lumea aceasta. Îşi terminase lucrarea. Cum se vor purta oamenii cu El? Îl vor batjocori, Îl vor bate cu biciul, Îl vor face să sufere, Îl vor dispreţui, Îl vor răstigni. În loc să Se tulbure, Isus, deşi mergea la moarte, Şi-a încurajat ucenicii.
Domnul a fost nevoit să-i îmbărbăteze şi să-i facă să se uite nu la împrejurările morţii Lui, ci la ceea ce era dincolo de această moarte, adică la bucuria care-i stătea înainte şi care-i va da putere să treacă biruitor prin moarte. Domnul le-a îndreptat privirile spre casa Tatălui ceresc, spre casa cu temelii tari a cărui Arhitect şi Ziditor este Însuşi Dumnezeu. Aşadar, Domnul Isus le-a vorbit preaiubiţilor Săi despre două lucruri strâns legate între ele: credinţă şi casa Tatălui.
Într-o lume instabilă avem nevoie să auzim mereu glasul Mântuitorului:
„Să nu vi se tulbure inima!“ Aceasta aduce linişte în toate furtunile vieţii noastre. Fără liniştea credinţei nu putem înainta prin greutăţile vieţii zilnice. Numai prezenţa Mântuitorului în viaţa noastră ne dăruieşte liniştea după care suspinăm deseori.
