YOU WERE THERE

“…He (God) Himself has said, I will not in anyway fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. I will not, I will not, I will not in any degree leave you helpless, nor forsake nor let you down (relax My hold on you). Assuredly not!”  Hebrews 13:5 Amplified Bible

Patti lived alone and did not have an easy life. She was one of the sweetest saints Norma and I have ever known, shining Christ’s light though suffering great afflictions. I remember when she called to tell us her precious son, Chris, had passed away. Patti’s heart was broken and we cried together.

Yet who can fully understand and feel the full weight of a bruised and broken heart that each of us experience in life? Even your closest loved ones can’t hug your heart. That is reserved for the One who loves you to such a degree that He bled and died to save you. Eternal, immortal, invisible—Jesus! The songwriter got it right: “What a friend we have in Jesus, ALL our sins and griefs to bear…” Wherever you are, He’s there too.

YOU WERE THERE

I thought I was alone,

But You were standing by;

I thought that no one saw my tears,

Then You wiped them from my eyes:

I thought I couldn’t go on,

But Your presence make my dare;

And in my weakness I found strength,

Because Jesus, You were there.

Yes Jesus, You were there,

When I needed One Who cared:

I found You so aware,

Yes Jesus, You were there.

I’ve many friends who love me,

But You’re the best of all;

 I’ve many folks who listen,

But You hear my faintest call:

Yes, people all around me,

Who have proved their tender care;

But when no one else could help me,

Then sweet Jesus, You were there.

Yes Jesus, You were there,

When I needed One Who cared:

 I found You so aware,

Yes Jesus, You were there.
