"Trust & Obey"



'Obey' was the theme of this weeks SALT CHALLENGE. I took inspiration from the well known hymn. When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word,What a glory He sheds on our way!While we do His good will, He abides with us still,And with all who will trust and obey.
Refrain Trust and obey, for there’s no other wayTo be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the skies,But His smile quickly drives it away;Not a doubt or a fear, not a sigh or a tear,Can abide while we trust and obey. Refrain
Not a burden we bear, not a sorrow we share,But our toil He doth richly repay;Not a grief or a loss, not a frown or a cross,But is blessed if we trust and obey. Refrain
But we never can prove the delights of His loveUntil all on the altar we lay;For the favor He shows, for the joy He bestows,Are for them who will trust and obey. Refrain
Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at His feet.Or we’ll walk by His side in the way.What He says we will do, where He sends we will go;Never fear, only trust and obey.Refrain


I recently treated myself to the K&Co Wild saffrom kit from QVC, and boy oh boy it is scrummy! Love the fact that (due to being in a rush) I didnt need to add a lot to my layout.

Love the wild saffron (one of the K & Co that I haven't got) and what you've done with it for this challenge, Esther. I must say that this hymn first came to me when I was considering this challenge.
