Rhapsody’s Rhythm

You are faithful. I trust You. Please forgive me my sins, and have mercy on me.

You are faithful. I trust You. Please forgive me my sins, and have mercy on me.

But we do not want you to be uninformed, brethren, about those who are asleep, so that you will not grieve as do the rest who have no hope.

For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep in Jesus.

For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep.

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.

Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord.

Therefore comfort one another with these words. (1 Thess. 4:13‑18)

You are faithful. I trust You. Please have mercy on me a sinner.

Jesus. My hope of Glory. My only Hope. I shall not be put to shame.

I have no other plan. I am all in. I trust YOU.

  1. I’m convinced that God created a rhythm to everything. Sin is the rhythm breaker. Led by the trumpet the ultimate symphony anxiously awaits. Good thoughts G.W.

  2. When my fifth child was saying his first words, he used to pick up a hymnal from the pile by the fireplace where they were kept for a weekly Bible study group that met in our home. He’d take that hymnal and climb onto the couch with it, open it to a random page, and sit there swaying side to side singing, “Holy, holy, holeeeee… Holy, holy, holeeee.”

    I think of that whenever I hear that hymn.

    And HALLELUJAH is being shouted within my spirit as I read the Scripture you shared. Those lines keep me going with hope instead of despair. How unspeakably marvelous it will be to see our Lord and all our brothers and sisters who trust Him!

    1. That’s a precious cute story of your fifth child! 🙂
      That scripture passage is called “our Blessed Hope.” And I agree, It truly is. 🙂
