Hymn #2 Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus

This week's Hymn Challenge was Turn Your Eyes upon Jesus.

The third verse is "His Word shall not fail you-He promised. Believe Him, and all will be well..." God is hear for us. In Mark 10:27 "With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God." we learn that we can do anything, be anything and get though anything if we have God in your lives.

This past July I lost my Grandma. At the funeral she wanted the eight grandchildren to sing "Children of the Heavenly Father". After we were done rehearsing, we were milling around the church when my cousin came running into the sanctuary. "Everyone come outside!" In the sky was a beautiful double rainbow.
God is always there, holding you and giving you strength. He will never give you more that you can handle. Even in my grief I knew this was part of life. I that I would someday know longer have the pain and sadness I felt that day.
