I Put My Whole Trust in Jesus my Savior

For I am persuaded that neither death or life, nor angels or principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39

Samuel Francis was born in a village north of London. His father was an artist. As a child Samuel enjoyed poetry and compiled his own poetry. He had a passion for music and joined the choir at age nine. He struggled spiritually as a teenager and moved to London to work. He knew things were not right and cried to God to have mercy on me. His life’s passion was the Kingdom’s work. He liked specially hymn writing and open air preaching for the Plymouth Brethren. He wrote the hymn, “O the Deep, Deep Love of Jesus” in 1875. He lived to be 92 years old and served the Lord preaching for 73 years.

My prayer for the week: Dear Lord, thank you for your son, Jesus who provides a resting place for our weary souls. Guide our hearts and hands to reach beyond ourselves to serve You. Amen
