Yesterday I got up as usual to have my early morning devotional. I have
gotten in the habit of spending time with Jesus again. However, I was tired
because I went to bed late the night before. So, I lay on the sofa and
after I spoke to Jesus, I waited for Him to answer. I fell asleep and even
had a dream. When I woke up it was exactly 6:45. I usually have my eyes
closed when I meditate and I would ask the Lord to let me know when it was
time to get up and get ready for work. He always does. When I want Him to
let me know when it is 7:00, I would suddenly open my eyes and look at the
time and it would be exactly 7. It never fails.
I was disappointed that I fell asleep and missed what the Lord had to say to
me. But, as I was getting ready for work, the hymn, “I Will Sing of Jesus’
Love” came to me. I kept hearing it and realized that this was His message
for me. I decided to look up the lyrics and read them.
I was reminded that I had a Lord who loves me. He died at Calvary for me.
He died so that I could live. No sin is so terrible that it cannot be
forgiven. I will sing of Jesus’ love–a love that has no boundaries. His
love is unfailing and everlasting. It is unconditional. I have not done
anything to deserve it but it is freely given. How can I help but sing of
this love that has given me hope and comfort and brought me so much joy?
I want to sing of Jesus love. I want others to know how wonderful He is. I
want them to experience His love. I want as many of us as possible to raise
our voices and sing joyfully of Jesus’ love. Oh, what a sweet, sweet sound
that would be.
