Jesus Is Tenderly Calling-a hymn written by Fanny Crosby (1820-1915).
One interesting fact about Fanny Crosby was that she had been blind as early as six weeks old. Yet in spite of it,
she wrote over 8,000 songs in her lifetime.
This hymn speaks about God's desire to show His unconditional love.
He wants to bring you into His presence.
This song speaks that every opportunity counts, for it
matters to God in His calling and purpose in our lives.
Our complete obedience is a way to express the joy of being
God's children. We are under
the privilege to experience His amazing love.
I also love the thought that even in times that we miss the way, He doesn't change even a single moment.
He is still ready and willing to call us and bring us back to the fullness of His presence. In this song, I can experience rest from all my shortcomings. In fact, we can totally rest even when our lives are over. As we step out in faith and bring our burdens to Him, there we can find a peace that never ends and the healing that conquers all limitations. Here, we are being sure of our salvation.
His calling is an assurance of a life well spent, drawing closer to Him in perfect humility.
Walking with God is a pace with an attitude of full obedience and trust. Even so, as we keep on inclining our ears to His call, we can always enjoy the
the abundance of rejoicing that can only be found in His presence.
There are moments of truths for the obedient and faithful. In our lifetime,
it is very important to know the most important thing. And that is,
knowing the gospel and taking every opportunity to fully obey them.
