Tis So Sweet

I've spent the past two days trying to resolve a problem with my laptop without having to rebuild the image. This morning my desktop PC failed (softly), so fixing it didn't present a tremendous challenge. It got me to thinking about the kinds of adversity one faces and I realized that computer problems fall way down on the list of problems I and others may face in life.

Marriages fail, people losing their job, home, life or limb are just a few of the aversities some of us face. It was then that I accepted the reality that anything of value on my laptop was possibly lost; but I'd be able to start again.

I began praising God for New Beginnings and because trusting Him is so very sweet. I hope you praise Him too as you listen to this song by Commissioned called Tis So Sweet:

Tis' so sweet to trust in Jesus,
just to take Him at His word.
Just to rest upon His promise,
and just to know that is was said by God.

Chorus:
Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him,
how I prove You more and more.

Jesus, Jesus, my precious Jesus,
I thank You for grace to trust You more.

I love the lyrics of this song. And you are right a computer problem is nothing compared to many other things. It's always good to keep perspective.

On a another note, thank you, thank you for your encouraging support and comments on my blog. I'm slow on the return visits lately, so I really appreciate your willingness to encourage me when I can't return the gift as often.

Have an amazing weekend basking in the love of God.

Be blessed.

And thank you for answering my hero questions and other questions when I ask. Few do, so I appreciate it when someone like you does. Thanks again!

Pecular Person: Thank you for stopping by and for the invite. I'm always happy to share my thoughts with other Christians, so I look forward to visiting your blog.

Tiffany: No need to apologize my sister. Like most of us, I like the feedback comments provide, but it's not the reason I write. There are so many Christians in this community of bloggers that it is difficult to spend time with everyone. I try to read blogs written by others but I cannot read every one; I just don't have the time. Along with my passion for Christ is my passion to write. I'm working on a creative non-fiction short story which I may post soon; I'll let you know so you can check it out when time allows.

MTJ -

This is a really great song. And in light of life's circumstances it certainly is a great reminder.

Odd, my cat is going through some serious problems that are life threatening. I never thought I'd be so upset over a cat but (don't think I'm weird) praying and trusting God with whatever happens does bring peace.

Thanks for the timely reminder. Have a great weekend!

Dean: I don't think you're weird. Although there have been a couple of instances when I wondered...hmmmm (just kidding brother). I hope you and the cat have a peaceful weekend.
