There is a place of quiet rest

1
There is a place of quiet rest,
  Near to the heart of God,
A place where sin cannot molest,
  Near to the heart of God.
  O Jesus, blest Redeemer,
  Sent from the heart of God,
Hold us, who wait before Thee,
    Near to the heart of God.
2
There is a place of comfort sweet,
  Near to the heart of God,
A place where we our Savior meet,
  Near to the heart of God.
3
There is a place of full release,
  Near to the heart of God,
A place where all is joy and peace,
  Near to the heart of God.

I was reminded by a dear friend that if we stay tight with Jesus, that's all we need. I was contemplating those words and I remembered this song I used to sing in church so many years ago. Nothing fills my soul like music, nothing can replace the old hymns.

Having my personal morning worship that I begin with saings and this was what the Holy Spirit gave me this morning.

I was actually equally blessed bybreading everyone else's testimonies! Wow. Thank you and I have prayed for each of you that we all will be saved when our LORD returns; including YOU reader...be faithful in the study of His Word only!

John 14:15-31 King James Version (KJV)

15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.

20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.

21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

Hymns relax the mind and connect me in a special way to God; especially when life's trials and temptations weigh heavily upon me. God is Good all the time and that is His nature.

If you need strength for the day, this is the one. I just sang it three times and it grows on you. You feel safe in Jesus' arms right in the presence of God, our Father. What a comfort!

Dear fellow in Christ, May you all be blessed.

Since 2013 November, I graduated from undergraduate studies but I did not manage to get job. My life had been up and down but I thank God because I still survive with plenty of blessing.

Today, I invite you to pray for me. I will be attending an interview tomorrow at 10am East African time.This will be my first time interview since 2015 started. Pray for me that His will may be done. I LEAVE IT TO GOD.
