Recently, I bought several CDs of older Southern Gospel songs which I am enjoying. A number of them were older songs I had not heard before and which were a blessing to me. I pass one of them on to you in today’s devotional because it speaks of the way to peace – something in these chaotic days we surely need. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
John 14:1 (ESV)
Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me.
LIVING BY FAITH
“I care not today what the morrow may bring,
If shadow or sunshine or rain,
The Lord I know ruleth o’er everything,
And all of my worries are vain.
Though tempests may blow and the storm clouds arise,
Obscuring the brightness of life,
I’m never alarmed at the overcast skies —
The Master looks on at the strife.
I know that He safely will carry me through,
No matter what evils betide;
Why should I then care though the tempest may blow,
If Jesus walks close to my side.
Our Lord will return for His loved ones some day,
Our troubles will then all be o’er;
The Master so gently will lead us away,
Beyond that blest heavenly shore.
Living by faith in Jesus above,
Trusting, confiding in His great love;
From all harm safe in His sheltering arm,
I’m living by faith and feel no alarm.”
[James Wells (vs. 1-3); Robert Winsett (v.4)
