Journal of a Lockdown No. 66

Sunday worship service

The sun is up today. There are a thousand reasons to be grateful, including today's preaching on Naomi and Ruth. I'm reminded that God never forgets to exercise grace, even among the backsliding. The songs we sing in church is a source of blessing. I'm edified by this week's selection, the classic "Trust and Obey"—the simplest yet most eloquent expression of childlike faith.



When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word,
What a glory He sheds on our way!
While we do His good will, He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.
Trust and obey, for there's no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt or a fear, not a sigh or a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.
Trust and obey, for there's no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at His feet.
Or we'll walk by His side in the way.
What He says we will do, where He sends we will go;
Never fear, only trust and obey.
Trust and obey, for there's no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
Oh, Trust and obey, for there's no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
