Only a few days left in February . . . How this month has flown! I pray that the daily blog posts have been a blessing! As we travel on deputation, our own hearts continue to heal, and God continues to burden us for others walking through great sorrow. The work of publishing my miscarriage booklet is quickly coming to a close. It is our prayer that A Letter In Your Loss will be for sale on Amazon by the beginning of March. You can currently find excerpts on the blog page for The Guild of Baptist Writers, at www.baptistwriters.com. I look forward to returning to my Dinner’s In The Oven devotionals, very soon! Please pray for us as we share with others the comfort that only Our Loving Savior can give . . .
LIVING FOR JESUS
By Thomas O. Chisholm
Living for Jesus a life that is true,
Striving to please Him in all that I do;
Yielding allegiance, glad-hearted and free,
This is the pathway of blessing for me.
Living for Jesus who died in my place,
Bearing on Calv’ry my sin and disgrace;
Such love constrains me to answer His call,
Follow His leading and give Him my all.
Living for Jesus wherever I am,
Doing each duty in His holy name;
Willing to suffer affliction and loss,
Deeming each trial a part of my cross.
Living for Jesus through earth’s little while,
My dearest treasure, the light of His smile;
Seeking the lost ones He died to redeem,
Bringing the weary to find rest in Him.
O Jesus, Lord and Saviour, I give myself to Thee,
For Thou, in Thy atonement, Didst give Thyself for me;
I own no other Master, My heart shall be Thy throne,
My life I give, henceforth to live, O Christ, for Thee alone.
