Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus

Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to take Him at His word,
Just to rest upon His promise,
And to know ‘thus sayeth the Lord’.

Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him,
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er,
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus,
Oh for grace to trust Him more.

That hymn has been true for me the past year, not just in Africa or after hearing of Annie’s death, but even over the last 6 months as I look for a job and find my place post-university. I haven’t actually found a job yet but I’m still looking and just enjoying life in the mean time – I’ve had lots of time to be involved at church/Bible studies, learning to drive (stick shift/manual), and just enjoying the beautiful spring weather we’ve been having here.

But really my main reason for this update was just to share Ryan’s post for today…

I hope this post finds you all well or at least resting in the knowledge that God has your situation under control.

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” – Jesus

  1. Becca, thank you for sharing Ryan’s post. It made me long to know Annie and Ryan as well. What a beautiful story of love as well as God’s faithfulness. I know losing your friend has been difficult for you. I’m so sorry but find comfort in knowing that Annie is without pain and in the presence of her beloved Lord.
