"I" - In heavenly love abiding! - See note


"All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work."  2 Timothy 3:16-17



“As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you;  Abide in My love.

If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love,

just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.

These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you,

and that your joy may be full."


John 15:9-11


In heavenly love abiding, no change my heart shall fear.
And safe in such confiding, for nothing changes here.
The storm may roar without me, my heart may low be laid,
But God is round about me, and can I be dismayed?

      God has shown us some wonderful ways to abide in His presence in the midst of all kinds of distractions or discouragements. One way is simply to memorize and silently sing His hymns. To help bring them to mind when I need them, I have listed my favorite hymns in alphabetical order. Now, when I wait in line somewhere or ride in a car, I simply follow the alphabet. In His quieting presence, I can silently sing my favorite hymns to myself and to my Lord.

W - What a Friend we have in Jesus, When my life-work is ended, When I survey the wondrous cross, Wonderful Grace of Jesus, We shall see the King some day, What wondrous love is this? or Will your anchor hold or Why should I feel discouraged


Years ago, when I first memorized “Jesus, I am resting, resting...” (the hymn China missionary Hudson Taylor would sing to himself when he couldn’t sleep at night), I struggled to remember the start of each new verse. But when I noted the beginning letter of the four verses, they formed a familiar word: JOSE.  With such reminders, I have no problem going right through this and other truth-filled hymns:

Verse 1. Jesus, I am resting, in the joy of what Thou art...

Verse 2. O how great Thy lovingkindness, vaster, broader than the sea....

Verse 3. Simply trusting Thee, Lord Jesus, I behold Thee as Thou art....

Verse 4. Ever lift Thy face upon me, as I work and wait for Thee.

We will continue to post hymns each week .  Every verse will be linked to a Scripture He shows us. May God use these verses to bless you with His Truth and Presence! And may they prepare each of us for the hard times ahead -- especially for the hostilities toward Biblical Christianity certain to follow today's spiritual slide away from God's Truth. and ways.
