Draw Me Nearer!
Christian Devotional by Pastor Cecil Thompson

Pastor Cecil Thompson
Cecil Thompson

James 4:7-10

"Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and He will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will lift you up."

What cross do you bear in life? What hardship or difficulty prevents you from being what God wants you to be? Fanny Crosby lived from 1820 to 1915. Because of a medical error to her eyes, she was blinded. That did not stop her, or suppress her spirit.

Here is a poem she wrote at age eight:

"Oh, what a happy child I am, although I cannot see!
I am resolved that in this world contented I will be!

How many blessings I enjoy that other people don't!
So weep or sigh because I'm blind, I cannot - nor I won't."

Over her 95 years she wrote something like 8,000 hymns, many that have touched and blessed the hearts of countless people. One of those hymns is our inspirational video for today, "Draw Me Nearer."

Here are the words of the chorus:

"Draw me nearer, nearer, blessed Lord
to the cross where Thou hast died;
Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,
To Thy precious bleeding side."

I want that to be my own prayer. I pray that it will be yours as well.
