Flying with Thursday's Word with Brenda Smith

Thursday's Word
Michael Hull

Sometimes, all you need is one friend. That someone who you can go to share all of your troubles. Just someone, who will listen and not judge you. Just someone, who will understand. Just someone, who will be there – no matter what.  That someone is Jesus…….

What a friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer!
Oh, what peace we often forfeit,
Oh, what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer!

Have we trials and temptations?
Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged—
Take it to the Lord in prayer.
Can we find a friend so faithful,
Who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness;
Take it to the Lord in prayer.

Joseph Scriven, composed this hymn for his mother to comfort her in a time of special sorrow. He never intended anyone else see it. This hymn was selected to be published in the Little Flock Hymn Book, Spiritual Songs, page 306.

Thank you Lord for this beautiful and timely song. Sometimes, all we need is a song in our spirit to lift us up from the cares of this world.

God bless you is my prayer.
