I am always coming across such inspiring and encouraging things as I read my daily devotions, listen to music, read various books, etc. So my goal with this journal is to simply share these writings, lyrics, poems & quotes with anyone who wants to read them. They will basically all be centered around themes of surrender, praise, and love towards Christ - things that are applicable to the lives of God's children as they strive to grow in Him. This first entry is to share the lyrics of a beautiful song called Jesus, Draw Me Ever Nearer (written by Kristyn & Keith Getty):
Jesus, draw me ever nearer
As I labour through the storm;
You have called me to this passage,
And I’ll follow, though I’m worn.
May this journey bring a blessing,
May I rise on wings of faith;
And at the end of my heart’s testing,
With Your likeness let me wake.
Jesus guide me through the tempest
Keep my spirit staid and sure;
When the midnight meets the morning,
Let me love You even more.
Let the treasures of the trial
Form within me as I go –
And at the end of this long passage,
Let me leave them at Your throne
