Every Day With Jesus

Yesterday morning, the words of this song came to my mind, a song I remember singing years ago at church as a young girl.

You may remember these words too…

Every day with Jesus, is sweeter than the day before.

Every day with Jesus, I love him more and more.

Jesus saves and keeps me, and He’s the one I’m waiting for.

Every day with Jesus, is sweeter than the day before.

Reminiscing on those days and the words to this song brings joy to my heart. Now as an adult, I realize that walking out “every day with Jesus” is a sweet adventure but it certainly does not come without intentional effort on our part. It requires us to willingly persevere through suffering and trials. But when we are willing to pay the price of commitment, we do draw closer to Christ Jesus. Through our suffering and perseverance we grow in character and hope, and we become mature and complete, lacking nothing.

These verses in Romans and James are encouraging…

Romans 5:3-5

3 Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.

James 1:2-4

2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

The words of the song are a refreshing reminder of how sweet it is to walk with Jesus daily; however, the words found in the scriptures, give us the details of what it takes on our part to fully experience that daily sweetness. Scripture tells us that learning to “love Him more and more” takes perseverance.

We live in a world that wants to shame us for following Jesus, but we are reminded in Romans 5:5, that when we choose to hope in Jesus, we will not be put to shame. Keep persevering, so that you become mature and complete, not lacking anything!

  3. As adults we grasp the difficulties in life in ways that children and youth do not, so yes we need to be intentional to keep our focus on Jesus. I am proud of you little sister for how you keep your eyes on Jesus and share his love.

  4. Every day with Jesus is sweeter than the day before, especially when we know His mercies are new every morning, and we give our worries and concerns to Him each day. We do need to keep our focus on Him and persevere. Dawn, thanks for the reminder and song. 💖🌷🌺

  5. Hadn’t thought of that old chorus in a long time–and it’s such a good one! Now that decades have passed since I sang it in my youth, the lyrics are all the more meaningful. I can honestly say Jesus HAS become a sweeter companion, guide, provider, and enabler as the days have gone by!
