It’s amazing how an old song can really bring the comfort that you need. I don’t even know how old this song is, but this song that I’ve been listening you has really reminded me of what’s important in this life: Knowing God. No matter the trials and sufferings we go through, we can take comfort in knowing the person who cares for us more than we could ever know. And that alone should bring us the joy and peace that we need. That’s not to say it won’t come with struggles and frustrations, but in the end, we’ll get through it. Maybe the reason we go through all that we do is to know God in a deeper way. In the end, what’s better than knowing our God for who He really is!!
“All I once held dear, built my life upon,
All this world reveres and wars to own; All I once thought gain I have counted loss, Spent and worthless now compared to this. Knowing You, Jesus, knowing You There is no greater thing. You're my all, You're the best, You're my joy, my righteousness, And I love You Lord. Now my heart's desire is to know You more, To be found in You and know as Yours, To possess by faith what I could not earn All surpassing gift of righteousness Oh to know the power of Your risen life, And to know You in Your sufferings; To become like You in Your death, my Lord, So with You to live and never die."
I need to remember:
Knowing You, Jesus, knowing You There is no greater thing. You're my all, You're the best, You're my joy, my righteousness, And I love You Lord.
