If ever I loved thee, my Jesus 'tis now. The words of this beautiful hymn have been replaying themselves in my head over and over again this evening. Am I willing to lay aside my own wants and desires? Am I willing to truly give it all to Him no matter what the cost? When I say that I love Jesus, do I really mean it or are these just pretty words coming out of my mouth?
When things get rough and you find yourself traveling over stormy seas, "pretty words" will not be enough. They must be real! The relationship your spouse and/or your parents will not be enough. You must make it your own.
These words are very sobering. I'll love Thee in life, I will love Thee in death,
And praise Thee as long as Thou lendest me breath;
And say when the death dew lies cold on my brow,
If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, 'tis now. I find I am asking myself, "Do I love Jesus, no matter what? Am I willing to trust all of me in His hand?"
May we all be able to say that we truly love Jesus, no matter what!
I love my family whole lot but they have not accpet the lord and I know as much as I love them the day will come when I will leave them and go home. I love the lord no matter what for the simple reson is I don't want to go back to be lost in the world no more. I have been there and all it left me was pain. As much as I love my family they are in gods hands not mine so I will have to let them go before I lose myself and fall form grace. no matter what that is is a good question.
No matter the heart ack I will love thee.
"My Jesus Tis now" has seena little bit of a revival within the youth communities in my country.
I love this hymn, i love the truths held within its verses.
Do I love him now? More than ever!
