Sunday school songs from childhood years, may often bring smiles to aging faces. The reassuring words warm the hearts from life’s cold winds.
“I love Jesus, I love Jesus. He is my friend, he is my friend. He will never leave me, He will never leave me. He is my friend. He is my friend.”
Life may bring harsh winds and the inside voice says “fear not” with an assurance of a loving God being Father, holding one’s hands as He never leaves. So, through tears, a heart assured of love will smile, confident that walking through the valley of the shadow of death there is no need to fear any evil “for thou art with me”. The seeds of the inside voice sown from early years and now firmly rooted.
The seeds sown in the hearts of children in early years determine the voice within as the years go on. Words of kindness, joy filled moments builds reserves to draw strength from when harsh winds blow. Every opportunity to show a child love and say in words or deeds “I care” may save another young life from a path of doom. Children hurting from feelings that no one cares, may be comforted by a simple act of kindness!
