Sabbath Songs: Nearer My God To Thee

If you have problems in your life, don’t assume there is something wrong with you. Struggling with those problems is at the very core of life’s purpose. As we draw close to God, He will show us our weaknesses and through them make us wiser, stronger. If you’re seeing more of your weaknesses, that just might mean you’re moving nearer to God, not farther away.
–Bruce C. Hafen, The Atonement: All for All, April 2004

The quote is an amazing encouragement. There are times I am overwhelmed by the weaknesses I have. Could it be I'm drawing closer to God? A large thought. The song is beautiful. I want to be ever nearer to Him. "Still all my song shall be, nearer my God to Thee."
