Message for March 13, 2022 from Pastor Shirley

I was raised in a typical southern Baptist church.  We sang the hymns from hardback song books.  I sang them not really knowing what truth they held.  The more my relationship grows with Abba Father – as the Holy Spirit continues to teach me concerning  the Scripture, those old songs become more and more precious to me.  One of them is a song written in 1880 by Louisa M.R. Stead.  Louisa lost her husband while he was trying to save a young boy who was drowning.   From this personal tragedy she later wrote the song- “Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus”
‘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’ve proved him o’er and o’er! Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus! O for grace to trust him more! O how sweet to trust in Jesus, Just to trust his cleansing blood; And in simple faith to plunge me Neath the healing, cleansing flood!               
Yes, ’tis sweet to trust in Jesus, Just from sin and self to cease; Just from Jesus simply taking Life and rest, and joy and peace. I’m so glad I learned to trust thee Precious Jesus, Savior, friend; And I know that thou art with me, Wilt be with me to the end.
Behold, God, my salvation! I will trust and not be afraid, for the Lord God is my strength and song; yes, He has become my salvation”.  Isaiah 12:2
