‘Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus. So simple, and so true.
Why? Because we can’t_____________ (fill that blank in with whatever you struggle with). We just can’t. We are frail. We are sinners. We can’t do it.
But HE can, and for those who trust in Jesus Christ alone, we have “life and rest, and joy and peace”, as the song says!
This song is particularly special to me because it was on my “while in labor” playlist when I had my son. It was so encouraging for me. I was terrified of giving birth, terrified of having needles in me, terrified of being in a hospital, terrified of being a mom. I knew all those fears would double when the pain of labor came. The truths and the promises in this song were just what I needed. It kept me going. I remember singing the chorus (more like loud whispering) in between contractions:
“Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus! Oh, for grace to trust him more!”
Such a sweet reminder of God’s faithfulness 💜
Soli Deo Gloria
