Mary Evelyn Rowe (1936-2023) was a sovereign grace believer and hymn writer. During the last years of her pilgrimage, she attended the gospel ministry of Peter Meney with the New Focus Church.
Habukkuk 3:18: "Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation."
The joy of the Lord is my salvation. When I was very young my father, though not my mother, was a Christian. We attended a local parish church in Southampton. I was confirmed in the Anglican church as a teenager and while this was not my conversion it did provide a framework for believing in God. It gave me a sense of my sin and need before God. When I began working I met a man through my employment who testified to me of a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and his witness made a big impression on me. Over the next few years I sought for a deeper relationship with the Lord.
