I will be preaching at FBC Church in Reserve, NM on Sunday! I am so blessed to be able to preach Jesus! Amen!
“KNOWING GOD’S FORGIVENESS”
Blessed Assurance is a well-known hymn that was written by a woman named Fanny Crosby, who became blind after only 6 weeks of life.
– One day in 1873, she was visiting with a friend, Mrs. Joseph Knapp, a musician and the wife of the founder of Metropolitan Life Insurance Company.
– During their visit Mrs. Knapp played a tune on her piano, which she had recently written. Then she asked Fanny, “What does this tune say?”
– After kneeling in silent prayer for a few moments, Fanny stood and said, “To me, it says, ‘Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!’”
Fanny began to give the words to Mrs. Knapp and together they wrote one of the greatest hymns ever written!
FANNY CROSBY MAY HAVE BEEN PHYSICALLY BLIND, BUT SHE HAD SPIRITUAL VISION!
SHE MAY HAVE HAD EVERY REASON TO FEEL SCARED AND UNCERTAIN, BUT HER FAITH BECAME GREATER THAN HER FEARS AND SHE WROTE MORE THAN 8,000 SONGS AND HYMNS DURING HER 95 YEARS ON EARTH!
I pray that you come Sunday if you do not have a home Church.
