Anxiety and its cousins, worry, misgiving, angst, and even fear, are never far from us. A million what-ifs plague us. Some imaginary, some inconsequential, but others with the power of life and death.
An old hymn by Fanny Crosby, “All the Way My Savior Leads Me,” says, “For I know, whate’er befall me, Jesus doeth all things well.” Confidence in God as our loving, always-working-for-good Father helps me “calmly wait Thy will.” Singing these words of praise helps to right my anxious heart and refocus on Him who always gives what is best to me, His child.
If you don’t know this hymn, may your heart sing another today to keep anxiety and worry far away. Music about Jesus is better than music about any other.
