soulful hymns//ancient words

welcome to the first day of the month of march! i hope February treated you well. the hymn i'm sharing today is one of my favs. it reminds me the the Word of God (who is the person of Jesus), is the most important book i can ever read. 

i get to know the heart of Jesus as i read His love letters each day. they rebuke me and correct me and most importantly, they remind me that i am loved by my Darling Jesus. and this love, His love, changes everything. i journal what He teaches me each day when i read to get to know more about Him and how my relationship with Him will thrive.

ancient words by michael w. smith
Holy words long preserved
For our walk in this world,
They resound with god's own heart
Oh, let the ancient words impart.

Words of life, words of hope
Give us strength, help us cope
In this world, where e'er we roam
Ancient words will guide us home.

Ancient words ever true
Changing me, and changing you.
We have come with open hearts
Oh let the ancient words impart.

Holy words of our faith
Handed down to this age.
Came to us through sacrifice
Oh heed the faithful words of Christ.

Holy words long preserved
For our walk in this world.
They resound with god's own heart
Oh let the ancient words impart.

Chorus x4

We have come with open hearts
Oh let the ancient words impart.

"and these words which i command you today shall be in your heart. you shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. you shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. you shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates."// deuteronomy 6:6-9

"My little children, for whom I labor in birth again until Christ is formed in you."// galatians 4:19

 "And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth."// John 1:14

Jesus is formed in me day by day as i spend time with Him, the Word. i get to know what He likes, dislikes... i get to understand why He asks me to do certain things. 

and hopefully, people out there who don't read the Bible get to see humans who are showing Jesus so well by the way they live so much so that unbelievers will be convicted to believe in Jesus. 

some of the major truths in the Bible are:

"for God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son (Jesus) that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting Life" //John 3:16

"And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment.  And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” // mark 12:30-31

Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;  does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;  does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.. And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love..// 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, 13

so have you been reading and meditating on the Word lately, have you been teaching the truths hidden in the love letters of Father to your children, nephews, nieces, grand kids, stranger kids, kids in your church, kids on the street, your friends and colleagues, your siblings, your family? i hope you do. and i hope that you use the Word practically in Your life because Father always has a word from His Word to encourage our weary hearts in every situation that we find ourselves in.

 xoxo, delali.
