Excerpt

January 1    

“Hold up my goings in your paths, that my footsteps slip     not.” Psalm 17:5

Without scrupulously or superstitiously observing “days, and months, and times, and years,” few of us altogether pass by so marked an     epoch as the dawning of another year upon our path without some acknowledgment of it both to God and man. When we open our eyes on the first     morning of the year, we almost instinctively say, “This is New-year’s day.” Nor is this, at least this should not be, all the notice we take, all the     acknowledgment we make of that opening year of which we may not see the  close.

When we bend our knees before the throne of grace, we mingle with thankful acknowledgment for the mercies of the past year, both in providence and in grace, earnest petitions for similar mercies to be experienced and enjoyed through the present. Last evening witnessed our confessions of the many, many grievous sins, wanderings, backslidings, and departings from the living God during the year now gone; this morning witnesses our supplications for grace to hold up our goings in his paths, that our footsteps slip not through the year just come. Tears are most suitable at the burial of the dead; hopes and desires at the birth of the living. The past year was the departed father, worn out with age and infirmity; the present year the new-born babe in the arms of the smiling mother. It is still, however, mid-winter. Today, the first of the present year, differs little in outward appearance from yesterday, the last of the past. But the thoughtful, prayerful mind takes little notice of wintry skies. It feels that the old, worn-out year has sunk into its grave, with all its trials and afflictions, and that a new year has come in its place, with its new hopes and new mercies; and if it bring new trials, yet that the promise still stands, that new strength will be given to meet and overcome them.

It is my opinion that theWord Bible Software is the most superior Bible Application there is! It can be tailored for the Beginner, in a simple form. Additionally; it can be tailored median, or; advanced. Module add on's make this the Student's Study Tool, or; The Ph.D. Head pastors Study / Teaching / Preaching Tool! To Conclude: I think it's just Wonderful! TY for it's developers - God Guided No Doubt!

What a blessing this software is. Not only that, it just blows me away that it is for free being that it is by far the best, and I mean the best Bible software out there in the market today.
You can either get the DVD, the flash drive (theWord on the go) or make your own backup copies and freely distribute them to people who actually need this software, those that don't know about it yet.
I have used every bible software program out there for years, including the famous Logos which I believe is just to overwhelming for anyone to use... and theWord is by far the best of the best.
It is just great software, ingeniously designed, powerful and fast.
I am a programmer myself however, I don't know what was used in the making of this software but it truly shows in its smooth performance and it caters to the bible student and those using it.
It has room to even get better I am sure but I am so happy with the latest version.
My hats off to theWord staff on what I feel is a beautiful creation of one of the most important tools one can have to study the bible in these last days.
BRAVO and to God all the Glory!
