In the shadow of The Big Guy

Today's smile-inducer : No School for the day !!! Yup, I'm a sloth that way coz it means more time for my books and more time to breathe..... things have been too hectic.

The other night I was lying in bed, suffocating from being squished in the middle of my two current bed partners, Doubt and Worry. And whilst I tossed and turned in search of comfort that seemed unattainable, this song we sang in church just popped in to lull me to sleep. Suffice to say, it was Doubt and Worry's turn to get uncomfortable and choose another bed partner.....

In Christ alone my hope is found,
He is my light, my strength, my song;
this Cornerstone, this solid Ground,
firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
when fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My Comforter, my All in All,
here in the love of Christ I stand.

In Christ alone! who took on flesh
Fulness of God in helpless babe!
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones he came to save:
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied -
For every sin on Him was laid;
Here in the death of Christ I live.

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain:
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave he rose again!
And as He stands in victory
Sin's curse has lost its grip on me,
For I am His and He is mine -
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

No guilt in life, no fear in death,
This is the power of Christ in me;
From life's first cry to final breath.
Jesus commands my destiny.
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home,
Here in the power of Christ I'll stand.
