Jesus Loves me, This I KnowPosted Monday, February 7, 2011, at 10:23 AM
It just came to me, to dedicate the below offering to a man who will absolutely know what I am trying to convey today. Billy Graham, I believe would have authored the below, if he had thought of doing so.
Jesus loves me, this I know
(92 year old, retired Preacher addressing old congregation): " " " ...
"When I was asked to come here today and talk to you, your pastor asked me to tell you what was the greatest lesson ever learned in my 50-odd years of preaching. I thought about it for a few days and boiled it down to just one thing that made the most difference in my life and sustained me through all my trials.. The one thing that I could always rely on when tears and heartbreak and pain and fear and sorrow paralyzed me...the only thing that would comfort was this verse........ .....
"Jesus loves me this I know.
The old pastor stated, "I always noticed that it was the adults who chose the children's hymn 'Jesus Loves Me' (for the children of course) during a hymn sing, and it was the adults who sang the loudest because I could see they knew it the best."
"Here for you now is a Senior version of Jesus Loves Me":
JESUS LOVES ME
Jesus loves me, this I know,
YES, JESUS LOVES ME.. YES, JESUS LOVES ME..
Though my steps are oh, so slow,
When the nights are dark and long,
When my work on earth is done,
I love Jesus, does He know?
If this one doesn't cause you to worship God, little else will, I fear. AMEN
