When I woke up this morning, the third stanza of that old church hymn were the first words on my mind…
What have I to dread, what have I to fear,
Leaning on the everlasting arms,
I have blessed peace with my Lord so near,
Leaning on the everlasting arms!
Let’s keep leaning on the everlasting arms. That’s where all our help and hope comes from.
