Leaning on the Everlasting Arms

1
What a fellowship, what a joy divine,
  Leaning on the Everlasting Arms!
What a blessedness, what a peace is mine,
  Leaning on the Everlasting Arms!
  Leaning, leaning,
Safe and secure from all alarms;
  Leaning, leaning,
  Leaning on the Everlasting Arms.
2
O how sweet to walk in this pilgrim way,
  Leaning on the Everlasting Arms!
O how bright the path grows from day to day,
  Leaning on the Everlasting Arms!
3
What have I to dread, what have I to fear,
  Leaning on the Everlasting Arms!
I have peace complete with my Lord so near,
  Leaning on the Everlasting Arms!

I will be released from a care facility in two days after an eight month stay. I would not have made it through the ordeal without the everlasting arms of Jesus around me.

Despite the circumstances around us. In the whirlwind of politics and health scares, we find safety, security, joy and peace when we LEAN into the arms of Jesus. Like a Father holding his small child securely above the chaos all around. When we jump into Daddys arms he will lead us where he wants us to go.

What a peace and secure feeling knowing nothing can take us from the love of our heavenly Father. I am 6 weeks post radiation/chemo treatments, thank you Jesus for giving me life abundantly after carrying me through that grueling 6 weeks.

If the words of this song just played on repeat, softly, in the back of our minds for our entire lives, we'd all be so much better off. What a peaceful, joyful message for our hearts and souls to hear! Nothing to fear, nothing to be alarmed of... joy at knowing we're being held safely in the father's arms!

Last night my late mom came to my dream and she sang this song so loudly with me and we were enjoying with the song. I woke up suddenly and cried alot. How blessed I'm to choose by Jesus and walking with me every day though I commit sin unceasingly.. thank you Lord !
