Do you have Blessed Assurance?
This refrain has been running thru my head this evening...
"This is my story, This is my song,
Praising my Savior, all the day long"...
I could not recall the hymn itself so I "googled it" - what did we do before we had "google" to run to?
It is the hymn - Blessed Assurance written in 1873 by Fanny Crosby - a wonderful songwriter who gave us many (over 8000) old hymns that are so precious to us... Fanny became blind at the age of 6 weeks of age due to the mistreatments of a doctor for a cold and puffy eyes. She chose to live her life with a positive, thankful attitude -
At the age of 12 she wrote these words:
O, what a happy child I am
Although I cannot see!
I am resolved that in this world
Contented I will be.
Ruthie --- how about making theses words yours? "I am resolved that in this world, contented I will be."
Reader - what about you doing the same?
Oh my dear friend!
Jesus is mine!
He has given me all I need!
He gives me Rest!
He gives me Peace!
He gives me strength!
He gives me love and forgiveness!
HE will do the same for you!
I have been on a journey of late and as the days progress I will share with you what Christ has been doing in my life and in me!
I am so thankful for the assurance I have in Him.
Blessings on you this day!
Resting in HIM,
