Oh, what a sweet support is our Lord!

 

All treasures, all pleasures of this world cannot offer the peace, serenity and joy that our Lord gives to those that put their lives into His hands.

Oh, how sweet, easy and full of joy is life when you are in the bosom of Christ! People today are full of concern, discontent, wickedness, just because they don’t lean on Christ, they don’t know the peace and joy and sweetness of life in the bosom of Christ.    

Oh, if only you know, my brother, how sweet and easy is life when you are in the bosom of Christ, when you can lean on our Lord as a support for your life! All treasures, all pleasures of this world cannot offer the peace, serenity and joy that our Lord gives to those that put their lives into His hands.
