This is my card for the current Hymn and Scripture Challenge located HERE. The hymn is "Leaning on the Everlasting Arms. I will admit I had a little trouble coming up with an idea to run with. I think the first part of all three stanzas is great and put those words on the card.
"What a Fellowship..."
"Oh, how sweet to walk..." and
"What have I to dread..."
These three lines are the best for me, but I did have a hard time relating to snuggling in God's arms. (I am way to independent) I concentrated on the word "Lean" and finally came up with Bill Withers song "Lean on me" which helped by being a stepping stone to the real thing. Withers is talking about leaning on a human being "when you're not strong". I can relate to that. It's all about trust. You would not "spill your guts" to a person you didn't trust, nor would you ask for help if you didn't think they could give it. If you leaned on someone with a broken leg, you both would fall. So the verse I picked is Proverbs 3:5a (Living Bible) "Trust in the Lord completely..." This is even more than to just 'lean'. It's going all the way.
