The Hymn

You must have sang this hymn, “Trust and obey for there is no other way to be happy in Jesus but to trust and obey.”

You can listen to the hymn๐Ÿ‘‰ here.

Childhood connection

This is one my favourite childhood hymns. I learnt it as a young boy when I had an opportunity to attend a Bible youth camp.

Impressed on the heart

I learnt it at that place with other boys and girls of my age. We sang it again and again till it sank into our hearts. Thanks to our camp organizers who took extra efforts to teach us beautiful hymns.

Two words

The two words gripped my heart, “trust and obey.” It created a lasting impression of what God required from that young boy. God spoke to me that he wants me to trust him and obey him throughout my life.

The hidden secret

That day I learnt the greatest secret of living a happy life in Christ. The secret was to trust my Jesus and obey his words. I have struggled with my youthful desires. Whenever I failed, these two words would convict me to return to my savior.

Assured Forgiveness

The trust in my Lord Jesus helped me to turn to him for forgiveness. After my failures I have always made new decisions and dedications, not to stray away. But failed again and again, it simply proved that I can’t fulfill God’s requirements with my strengths.

The godly sorrow

Failure to obey caused me severe pain of hurting my loving Jesus. I used to cry in secret. I would implore him to grant me forgiveness and grace to overcome. He always gave me assurance of his forgiveness. I am so thankful to the Lord. He is helping me to grow in him every day.

Thanks for listening.๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ™

Shalom ๐Ÿ•Š๏ธ
