Often times my heart is heavy bow'd neath a load of care
And my soul is longing for rest
Then I hear my savior saying all your burden I will bear
Lay your weary head upon my breast
As I travel on life's journey that will lead to heavens shore
How I long to reach that blessed place
Tho I'm tired foot sore and weary and old Satan tempts me sore
I will make it thru His grace
Jesus calls me I must follow in the path He's marked for me
He will lead me safely to the end
If I falter by the wayside He is there to rescue me
For on Him I now will depend
I don't know about you but sometimes I just don't feel "Saved". When the car breaks down, when the rent is due, when all the bills need paying or when the rain just beats a sad tune against the window glass, where is my Lord?
Then, all I need do is just look upward to my loving Father and think about heavens shore. I get homesick for my love ones and all the more. For you see, God's grace not only saves us but also keeps us.
"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is'stayed on thee ; because he trusteth in thee".( Isaiah 26:3)
So just simply look up.
"And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.(Luke 21:28)
