This should not be hard. In fact, if we love Jesus, it should be the easiest thing to do - the hard thing will be limiting it to five!
My mom tells me that I asked her to pray with me to accept Jesus into my heart when I was 3 years old - the age Feisty is now. I wish I remembered that day! What I do remember is that I never wanted to do anything else but please Jesus. I have not been a perfect Christian by any means. I have struggled with the fact that I don't remember that day. I have wanted to point back to the place I met Jesus face to face. But I rejoice every day that He spared me from the heartache of deep sin because I accepted Him so early in my life. So here is my list:
- I don't know about tomorrow, I just live from day to day.
I don't borrow from its sunshine, For its skies may turn to gray.
I don't worry o'er the future, For I know what Jesus said;
And today I'll walk beside Him, For He knows what is ahead.
Many things about tomorrow I don't seem to understand;
But I know who holds tomorrow, And I know Who holds my hand.
- God sent His Son - they called Him Jesus;
He came to love, heal and forgive;
He lived and died to buy my pardon;
An empty grave is there to prove my Savior lives.
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow;
Because He lives, all fear is gone.
Because I know He holds the future
And life is worth the living - just because He lives.
- When peace like a river attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea bellows roll,
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say,
"It is well, it is well with my soul."
Tho' Satan should buffet, tho' trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul.
It is well --- It is well ---
It is well --- It is well with my soul!
- Jesus is all the world to me, my life, my joy, my all;
He is my strength from day to day, without Him I would fall.
When I am sad, to Him I go, no other one can cheer me so;
When I am sad, He makes me glad, He’s my Friend.
Jesus is all the world to me, my Friend in trials sore;
I go to Him for blessings, and He gives them over and o’er.
He sends the sunshine and the rain, He sends the harvest’s golden grain;
Sunshine and rain, harvest of grain, He’s my Friend.
Jesus is all the world to me, and true to Him I’ll be;
O how could I this Friend deny, when He’s so true to me?
Following Him I know I’m right, He watches o’er me day and night;
Following Him by day and night, He’s my Friend.
Jesus is all the world to me, I want no better Friend;
I trust Him now, I’ll trust Him when life’s fleeting days shall end.
Beautiful life with such a Friend, beautiful life that has no end;
Eternal life, eternal joy, He’s my Friend.
- Coming again, Coming again
May be morning, may be noon
May be evening, and may be soon
Coming again, Coming again
JESUS IS COMING AGAIN!
Is anybody surprised that I used songs to express my reasons that I "dig" Jesus?
I'd love to have the following people tell us their 5 reasons:
