My All Time Favorite Hymn

Remember to turn off my playlist at the bottom of this page.

I love this song, always have. I wake up daily with the intention of walking closer to Him, once in a great while I succeed. Most days I fail miserably. Daily "stuff" often gets in my path and in my effort to kick it out of the way, I usually manage to kick it into something else that proceeds to fall on my path, most times that something is stuck to something else and before I know it, I've wasted the entire day just kicking things out of the way to be able to "walk closer". Am I making sense here? Surely, I'm not the only one who does this. What I should do is ask God to take these stumbling blocks out of my path. Oh, I pray every morning, usually asking God to watch over my family and keep them safe. I ask for forgiveness, thank Him for my many blessings and ask Him to bless those who are less fortunate. But at some point during my day, I miss the opportunity to do more to walk closer. Kinda like with this blog, I know there aren't many people who see it, still, I don't know who may stumble upon it. I started it with the intention of "walking closer", maybe just planting a seed so someone would be blessed. Then, I get started on something else and just like now, I see it's been a couple of weeks since I've posted here. But, you know the wonderful thing the end of the day...God knows I'm still only human and He loves me anyway!Just like when our children get a little off track every now and then...we still love them dearly and we gently try to guide them back on track. We never give up on them and best of all...God never gives up on us!

  1. Interesting choice for a favourite hymn. And it's one of those songs whose origins are lost in the mists of time. It was likely a pre-Civil War slave song, but no one knows for sure. It has clearly struck a chord with many.

    Fanny Crosby's song, "Draw Me Nearer," has a similar theme ("I long to rise in the arms of faith, / And be closer drawn to Thee." Let's keep walking with the Lord! And God bless.
