I'm Leaning on the EVERLASTING Arms

Updated on January 30, 2014
Source

I am leaning on the everlasting arms

when my trials doesn’t seem to cease

and there is perils on every side. When

waves cover my ship and toss me to the side.

Source

I know I am anchored in Jesus and I am

leaning on his everlasting arms. When

no one seems to care how much I despair.

when no one seems to be near and all my burdens

I must bear.

Source

I know I am leaning on the everlasting arms

when I see where God has brought me from and

who I use to be and what I’ve become. When life’s

rocks was hurled at me at that time I thought it was

brutality , but all those rocks is what has formed

the solid rock upon which I now stand.

Leaning on the Everlasting Arms

I know I am leaning on the everlasting arms,

when my heart is heavy laden and heartbroken,

and Jesus comes and soothe the spot with his precious

touch and that feeling suddenly disappear. What a fellowship

what a joy divine I am leaning on his everlasting arms.

Source

When I see how God has continuously blessed me

even when I’ve murmured and complain. I know

He does not think like you and me. Then I

Know for sure that I am leaning on the everlasting

arms when my trials are all passed and VICTORY at last.

      Beautiful words so encouraging, Christ's lovingkindnesses and forgiveness are unfathomable, just like His ever-expanding universe! His and His Father's love incomprehensible...

      Yet so true, and real.

      Thanks for sharing this with us for the encouragement it brings.

      You just get more talented with each new hub. Your poetry and pictures are so beautiful. Sorry I didn't catch this earlier but had to leave town for the day and since then haven't had time until now to get online.

      I wish someday you would write about where you live and show the sea and beaches and all the beautiful things we don't get to see every day like you do. I know that is a beautiful place and I bet it would score big with HP too. ^+

      God bless you!
