Softly and Tenderly

This hymn is very dear to my heart. God saved my soul almost five years ago, and I will be forever grateful! Please take a few minutes to meditate on these beautiful words. 
"Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling,
Calling for you and for me;
See, on the portals He’s waiting and watching,
Watching for you and for me.
Come home, come home,
You who are weary, come home;
Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling,
Calling, O sinner, come home!
Why should we tarry when Jesus is pleading,
Pleading for you and for me?
Why should we linger and heed not His mercies,
Mercies for you and for me?
Time is now fleeting, the moments are passing,
Passing from you and from me;
Shadows are gathering, deathbeds are coming,
Coming for you and for me.
Oh, for the wonderful love He has promised,
Promised for you and for me!
Though we have sinned, He has mercy and pardon,
Pardon for you and for me."

I would encourage you that if you know anyone who is lost and hasn't responded to God's call of salvation, please share the Gospel with them before it's too late! They're yearning for something more but just don't know what they are yearning for. So please, even if you struggle with witnessing ,(as I do), you can sew those seeds with your actions, a little smile or a few words to brighten their day. It will show them that we have something different about us, and they will either not like it and push us away or will want to ask us why we're so happy and content.
Well I hope you all have a great week. :-)
