“Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us. Selah.”
'Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to take Him at His Word;
Just to rest upon His promise,
Just to know, "Thus saith the Lord!"
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!
What is the outpouring of our hearts before the LORD? The woman who wrote this hymn watched her husband drown in an attempt to save someone else. Our emotional wreckage doesn't repel Jesus. He wants us to run to him so he can comfort us through His Holy Spirit.
"TIS SO SWEET TO TRUST IN JESUS."
LORD, please give me the grace to trust you more. You are the refuge for my weary soul. Even when I feel loss, confusion, and hurt, I believe that you are still good. Thank you for your many blessings, Lord. Please help me to have a grateful heart when I remember all you've done.
