I have decided this will now be the song the girls and I will work on daily in school to memorize and sing until it too is written on theirs hearts. Funny because without even praying about it, I was just wishing the other day that I would find a song to incorporate in our schooling. Romans 8:28 Interesting how things work out.
I pray one day when my girls are feeling insecurities in their relationships they too will find comfort in the best friend of all, Jesus. I also pray that down the road when they find themselves humming the song " What a Friend we have in Jesus" they too will hear my voice singing the song in their head just as I hear my Grandmas.
Thank you Lord for the relationships you have blessed me with. For all of the wisdom that comes from trial and error. Thank you Lord for your Grace and for your perfect example of how to be a good friend.
What a friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear! What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer! O what peace we often forfeit, O what needless pain we bear, all because we do not carry everything to God in prayer.
Have we trials and temptations? Is there trouble anywhere? We should never be discouraged; take it to the Lord in prayer. Can we find a friend so faithful who will all our sorrows share? Jesus knows our every weakness; take it to the Lord in prayer.
Are we weak and heavy laden, cumbered with a load of care? Precious Savior, still our refuge; take it to the Lord in prayer.
Do thy friends despise, forsake thee? Take it to the Lord in prayer! In his arms he'll take and shield thee; thou wilt find a solace there.
