The Precious Love Of Jesus

It has always been in my most troubled moments on Earth that I have felt the love of Christ the deepest. It is when others see the troubles that I daily encounter that I am filled with the most joy - The joy of  my Jesus! It is when it seems like I should be the loneliest when I am drawn nearer and closer to the Holy One.  
Jesus, thank you for Your precious love. It is when I look at Your face, when the pleasures of this world grow strangely dim. Only when my arms are wrapped tightly around you, am I am truly lost in Your love. When I care about nothing else, I hear Your voice as clear as water, and it is only when I am entangled in Your holiness, I come to know the precious joys of knowing and serving You. Oh how I love you, my Beloved. 
--------
Oh the deep, deep love of Jesus
Vast, unmeasured, boundless, free
Rolling as a mighty ocean
In its fullness over me
Underneath me, all around me
Is the current of Your love
Leading onward, leading homeward
To Your glorious rest above

Oh the deep, deep love
All I need and trust
Is the deep, deep love of Jesus

Oh the deep, deep love of Jesus
Spread His praise from shore to shore
How He came to pay our ransom
Through the saving cross He bore
How He watches o’er His loved ones
Those He died to make His own
How for them He’s interceding
Pleading now before the throne

Oh the deep, deep love of Jesus
Far surpassing all the rest
It’s an ocean full of blessing
In the midst of every test
Oh the deep, deep love of Jesus
Mighty Savior, precious Friend
You will bring us home to glory
Where Your love will never end
-------
May you, my dear friends, come to know the never-ending, ever-lasting joys of knowing Jesus! I want to encourage you all to "Come near to Him and He will come near to you!!" Keep trusting in Christ, His love Never fails. I love you all dearly! For the King and His glory!
