Arms!

Being our Lord's Day again, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'll confirm to you that I will worship with my church family, today!

Like normal, I will share a hymn with you.  It's by Elisha A. Hoffman and Anthony J. Showalter and is entitled, Leaning on the Everlasting Arms.  Here is a link for you to listen to and/or sing along:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GrJ3WKNeeRA.  The lyrics are below.

Leaning on the Everlasting Arms

What a fellowship, what a joy divine
Leaning on the everlasting arms
What a blessedness, what a peace that's mine
Leaning on the everlasting arms

Leaning, leaning
Safe and secure from all alarms
Leaning, leaning
Leaning on the everlasting arms

Oh how sweet to walk in this pilgrim way
Leaning on the everlasting arms
Oh how bright the path grows from day to day
Leaning on the everlasting arms

Leaning, leaning
Safe and secure from all alarms
Leaning, leaning
Leaning on the everlasting arms

What have I to dread
What have I to fear
Leaning on the everlasting arms
I have blessed peace with my Lord so near
Leaning on the everlasting arms

Leaning, leaning
Safe and secure from all alarms
Leaning, leaning
Leaning on the everlasting arms


Oh, how sweet to walk
In this pilgrim way
Leaning on the everlasting arms
Oh, how bright the path grows from day to day,
Leaning on the everlasting arms.

Leaning, leaning
Safe and secure from all alarms
Leaning, leaning
Leaning on the everlasting arms


(These verses were not recorded:

Jesus, Jesus how I trust you
How I proved you o'er and o'er
Jesus, Jesus precious Jesus
Oh for Grace to trust Him more

'Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus
Just to take Him at His word
Just to rest upon his promise
Just to know, thus saith the Lord

Jesus, Jesus how I trust Him
How I proved Him o'er and o'er
Jesus, Jesus precious Jesus
Oh for grace to trust Him more)


Yes, we need to be leaning on the everlasting arms.  Just as we heard in this hymn.

And, just as we read, in Deuteronomy 33:27, "The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee; and shall say, Destroy them."

God has everlasting arms... and He shall thrust out the enemy from before thee; and shall say, Destroy them.

My friend, if you're experiencing trouble in life, look to God.

He's there for us.  At least, for those of us who are His children.

Are you His child?

Have you gained salvation by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ? 

If so, then you are His child, whom will always be loved by God.

For this, be thankful.  Just as I am.


Until next time...
