WOW #22 (Words of Wisdom): What A Friend

The Lord sent two precious saints to encourage me in my journey today. When I got home for having a delicious home cooked meal with them, I started to listen to music on YouTube. By happenstance, I stumbled upon a Chonda Pierce video that reminder me of the wonderful words of an old hymn. I think the words and melody will be very familiar when your begin to read the words:

What a friend we have in Jesus,
all our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
everything to God in prayer!
O what peace we often forfeit,
O what needless pain we bear,
all because we do not carry
everything to God in prayer.
Joseph M. Scriven

I believe it grieves the heart of the Father when we try to do life on our own…”What a friend I have in Jesus…”
