Christian living is challenging yet God in His goodness and mercy has made it easy for us. He has opened the way to an abundant life through and in His Son, Jesus Christ.
There are many hymns that speak of how the Christian hymn writers live the Christian life in the midst of tragedies and suffering.
We can learned so much about living victoriously through the eyes and lives of these Christian hymn writers from the hymn lyrics they penned long ago.
There are so many hymns that will help us in the various times in our life. Be it the death of a loved one, the betrayal of a friend, colleague or brother, at the sickbed of a child, or when faced with 'trials and tribulations', there is sure to be a hymn that will speaks to your heart because there is nothing that we are going through that our brethren of yesteryear has not gone through before.
Let us be inspired by the lives of these righteous ones and be encouraged by their examples; knowing that the God they put their trust and faith in is the same yesterday, today and forever.
As we meditate on these touching lyrics penned from the heart of each hymn writer, may we take courage and learn to cast our cares on Jesus, our Redeemer and Lover of our soul. Be assured that He cannot fail us because He is who He said He is.
