SONGS FROM THE BUS
Remember a couple of weeks ago, we talked about “Who’s Driving the Bus?” We decided that it is Jesus, our Lord and Savior. The thing is that the ride is longer and bumpier than we could ever have imagined, but there are many signs of hope and of future. Just different.
Last night this passenger woke up – couldn’t go back to sleep. I sensed that other riders were restless too.
I started to sing “Fairest Lord Jesus, ruler of all nations….. Thee will I honor, Thee will I cherish, Thou my soul’s glory, joy, and crown.” I suddenly felt the “peace that passes all understanding.” Others were singing, too.
Then the little girl in the seat in front of me started to sing “Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so…. Yes, Jesus loves me, yes, Jesus loves me, …….”
After that another passenger sang “Spirit of the Living God, fall afresh on me….”
And then we were all singing songs that we love, songs of our faith and trust. Songs of our past and of our future.
Then, only Jesus, driving the bus was awake, and there was quiet and peace – and I’m pretty sure He was smiling.
SO let us “SING! praise to God, who reigns above, the God of all creation. The God of power, the God of love, the God of our salvation. With healing balm, my soul is filled, and every faithless murmur stilled. To God all grace and glory.”
