Tis so Sweet

I was giving my little hunk of love a bottle the other day. I love how contented he can look when getting his bottle. He is completely at rest in his Grammie's arms; eyes close after a bit and just pure enjoyment at getting a bottle and being in my arms.

My mind wandered to how I love that look and that my Heavenly Father loves that look from me too. 

Do I give Him that look often enough? He certainly deserves it. He loves and provides for me far more than I deserve.

If I am honest, I probably don't give Him the looks of contentment nearly enough. I have found Him to be completely faithful, yet, I worry and fret rather than resting in His loving arms.

This hymn came to mind as I sat there...

  1. ’Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
    Just to take Him at His Word;
    Just to rest upon His promise,
    And to know, “Thus saith the Lord!”
    • Refrain:
      Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!
      How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er;
      Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
      Oh, for grace to trust Him more!
  2. Oh, how sweet to trust in Jesus,
    Just to trust His cleansing blood;
    And in simple faith to plunge me
    ’Neath the healing, cleansing flood!
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

Great words indeed...
So grateful for the little church that taught me all those hymns in my childhood. They still go with me today.
