In tenderness He sought me.
1 In tenderness He sought me,
Weary and sick with sin,
And on His shoulders brought me
Back to His fold again:
While angels in His presence sang
Until the courts of heaven rang.
O, the love that sought me!
O, the blood that bought me!
O, the grace that brought me to the fold,
Wondrous grace that brought me to the fold!
2 He washed the bleeding sin-wounds,
And poured in oil and wine;
He whispered to assure me,
“I’ve found thee, thou art Mine:”
I never heard a sweeter voice,
It made my aching heart rejoice.
3 He pointed to the nail-prints,
For me His blood was shed;
A mocking crown so thorny,
Was placed upon His head:
I wondered what He saw in me,
To suffer such deep agony.
4 I’m sitting in His presence,
The sunshine of His face,
While with adoring wonder
His blessings I retrace.
It seems as if eternal days
Are far too short to sound His praise.
5 So while the hours are passing,
All now is perfect rest;
I’m waiting for the morning,
The brightest and the best,
When He will call us to His side,
To be with Him, His spotless Bride.
For I reckon with, I put all reasons together and I am fully convinced that "the sufferings" of this present times are not worthy to be compared with the glory that shall be revealed in us!!! Glory to God!!! Romans 8:18!
And so, have a stress-free week, joyfully, rejoicing; for you know, all the sufferings are but a temporary one! What you have is farrrr greater!! You are highly favored!😀😀 #justbecauseitswednesday#MidWeekService#JesusGaveMeAll#JesusChrist#InspirationDailywithJumoke !
Allah has chosen you to hold hope for His people, to trust in the innate goodness of man. To be a Jesus of your time. To refuse to speak to the evil in man, to speak only to the overwhelming goodness of the essential pure nature or fitra of the human being. To have the eyes of Christ, eyes that see wholeness where others only see brokenness. To see the seeds of love where others see only fruits of hatred. You were chosen to bring peace, a grand quality of God that through the veiled eyes of people casts a vast shadow of darkness. But know that the darkness you witness points to light because the existence of war no matter how savage will always be the greatest evidence of potential peace because opposites define one another. This is not a motivational speech, or some poetic attempt to give you something you don't already have this is just a reminder of all that you know. A reminder of how the deepest parts of your hearts longing pulled you from the infinite possibilities of life to this very crossroad. Your true souls calling knows that you were created to witness beauty with such intention and persistence that beauty becomes the filter of your witnessing. The world has pain, suffering, injustice, and war in measures that devastates the heart of man but you were not sent to be enrolled in the fear of despair you were sent as a means of healing, empathy, justice, and peace. Do not allow the darkness to dim your shine because the darkness can never swallow the light be it a match or the sun, the flame of love will always overwhelm hatred because hatred is not a quality of God, hatred is the shadow of love. You were sent as a dove, as the symbol of hope after Noah's flood, as a manifestation of Divine Care amidst complete devastation. You represent a chance, a heart that still cares, a light at the end of a really really long tunnel. You must grasp to the final fibers of hope inside of you because you are a brick to a bridge to a world that billions have written off as too dangerous to save. You have a sun inside of you that you can not drown in the ocean of your pain, you have to rise, you have to trust that God has planted enough seeds of love in the hearts of 👇
Anger, bitterness and resentment only hurts one person - YOU, not the person you're resenting. That's because you're the one feeling it all, and carrying it all - not them. Lashing out at them doesn't help either. Believe me. It may make you feel a little better, but it may not be the wisest thing to do. It could all eat away at you, and could affect other areas of your life. As a Christian, this is an area we need to be careful about. Do you have anger, bitterness, resentment, negative thoughts and irritability in your heart towards someone? A family member, work colleague, spouse, friend or neighbor? Think about it, this is very important. You know why? Because these feelings come from sins in your heart, like: un-forgiveness, self-control issues, pride, anger, jealousy, and anger among others. And they are all traits of the devil. So what does God's word say about all this? Seek God's peace and pursue it. #dealingwithanger#anger#selfcontrol#godsword#biblestudy#resentment#unforgiveness#jealousy#bitterness#knowwhoyouare#jesuschrist
