I recently heard a wonderful message given by Mr. Alan Redpath.  The title of this post is the title of his sermon.  A friend of mine, Pearl, posted it on her blog, Be Thus Minded.  Unfortunately, Pearl’s wonderful blog no longer exists but I was able to find this video on YouTube recently.

The message was a great encouragement to me.  I hope you take a listen.  I think it will have the same effect on you.

    “O Love that Wilt not Let me Go”

    O Love that wilt not let me go,
    I rest my weary soul in thee;
    I give thee back the life I owe,
    That in thine ocean depths its flow
    May richer, fuller be.

    O light that followest all my way,
    I yield my flickering torch to thee;
    My heart restores its borrowed ray,
    That in thy sunshine’s blaze its day
    May brighter, fairer be.

    O Joy that seekest me through pain,
    I cannot close my heart to thee;
    I trace the rainbow through the rain,
    And feel the promise is not vain,
    That morn shall tearless be.

    O Cross that liftest up my head,
    I dare not ask to fly from thee;
    I lay in dust life’s glory dead,
    And from the ground there blossoms red
    Life that shall endless be.

    (Just another glorious hymn born out of sorrow)

      Beautiful. We would be all be fallen trees if the winds didn’t blow. We would have shallow roots and far less compassion.

      Thank you, Pearl.
