Safe in the arms of Jesus

Safe in the arms of Jesus,
  Safe on His gentle breast,
There by His love o'ershaded,
  Sweetly my soul doth rest.
Hark! 'tis a song of heaven
  Borne in the sweetest voice,
Echoed by saints in spirit,
  Making my heart rejoice.
  Safe in the arms of Jesus,
  Safe on His gentle breast,
There by His love o'ershaded,
    Sweetly my soul doth rest.
Safe in the arms of Jesus,
  Safe from corroding care,
Safe from the world's temptations,
  Sin cannot harm me there.
Free from the blight of sorrow,
  Free from my doubts and fears;
Only a few more trials,
  Only a few more tears.
Jesus, my heart's dear Refuge,
  Jesus has died for me;
Firm on the Rock of Ages
  Ever my trust shall be.
Here let me wait with patience,
  Wait till the night is o'er,
Wait till I see the morning
  Break on the golden shore.

I woke up this morning with a heavy heart ruminating over all the challenges that I have been going through over the past months. And before I could settle down to have my quiet time, the Holy Spirit just ministered this song to me and I started singing it. With these comforting words, I know I'm Safe in the arms of Jesus and sweetly my soul doth rest. Almighty God, Your word is yea and amen, it cannot return to You void. I have faith that I am safe in Your arms. No weapon formed against me shall prosper in the awesome name of Jesus.

This song reminds me of my fellow Spiritual Brother Ray Votaw who taught me God's word.

Safe in the arms of Jesus has blessed my heart this morning as I sit missing our dear Grandson Levi who went to heaven on April 4 2014. His life verse was Romans 8:18. He was A sweet witness to the saving grace of our Lord Jesus in whose loving arms he rests. Thank God for His unspeakable gift.

I have always loved The Lord and hymns are the most inspirational when one is deeply in prayer recognizing the presence and comfort of the Holy Spirit. This is where I am now, praying for a very very dear friend. The Holy Spirit popped this hymn in my heart and I just had to recall every single word in each stanza of the hymn. Now I know God has a word for me for my friend's situation. It is well so I no longer worry. Praise The Lord and His infinite wisdom. Amen.

I am learning into my counselling course of how important it is to have a secure attachment. Many don't. They can be fearful or avoidant. It reminded me of this hymn, Safe in the arms of Jesus. That is our secure attachment! While those we love may leave or pass on, God is our only security.

I was awoken with a heavy burden. I begun to talk to the Lord as l was not able to phone any one as it was rather late—11:15 pm. Furthermore, l was fed up of telling people about my worry, so l decided to pray. To the glory of God the Holy Spirit who is our great Comforter, gave me this profound hymn—Safe in the arms of Jesus. Then, l was given another one—Praise God from whom all blessing flow. Praise Him all creatures here below, Praise Him above ye heavenly host, Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost. From that point my heaviness melted. Praise the Most High. I admonish you to cast all your cares on Jesus, as friends will fail you. But Jesus will never fail.

Do not consider this as a hymn used during a funeral. Do not wait until you die to enjoy the arms of Jesus when you can enjoy them today. The hymns we sing in the home meetings need not be fully in line with the fellowship in the meeting. Do not be legal. The hymns we select depend fully on whether we have the Spirit or not. If in your daily life you let the Lord make home in you, and if you are being transformed into His image by beholding His glory with unveiled face, then He will lead you. You will sense the nourishing and comforting within. The Lord may give you a hymn. Then you come to the meeting. You may be the first one in the meeting, but you do not need to wait for others. You just begin to sing, "Safe in the arms of Jesus...." As you sing you bring the spiritual atmosphere into the meeting. Those who come later will join the singing and the meeting will begin spontaneously.
