Leaning On the Everlasting Arms

What a fellowship, what a joy divine, Leaning on the everlasting arms. What a blessedness, what a peace is mine, Leaning on the everlasing arms.  (Red Back Hymnal, copyright 1951, page 359.) This blessed old hymn has always been one of my favorites. If you saw the new release of Tru Grit you couldn’t help but hear this beautiful song playing in the background throughout most of the movie. As I heard it play, I wondered how many people watching the movie had never heard the song before or had never sung it  in a blessed spirit-filled church service.  I’m glad to say that I have had that experience in my life. Today, more than ever we need to lean on the Everlasting Arms of Jesus just as the authors of the song penned down many years ago.  Today, we need to Break Away from old idols and all other kinds of strong holds to a life where we fully and completely Lean on Jesus. Today, it is my prayer that we all walk a little close with the Lord as we feel his everlasting arms surrounding our lives as we face each new and brighter day ahead.  You also might want to sing the chorus to this old blessed hymn: Leaning, leaning, Safe and secure from all alarms; Leaning, Leaning, Leaning on the everlasting arms.

  1. Such good words to on the three blogs that I read.I esp. liked the one about forgetting those things which are behind.What a mess our lives would be if we didn’t let go of the past!Of course the enemy wants to keep us bound by the strongholds that kept us in defeat. Thank God for His Word that renews our minds,gives us hope and promise for our today and tomorrow!!Look forward to your words from Him.
    Love and blessings,
