FOR THIS I HAVE JESUS
NO MATTER HOW STEEP THE HILL I CLIMB
NO MATTER HOW SWIFT THE CURRENT I SWIM
NO MATTER HOW ROUGH THE ROAD I WALK
OR SWIFT THE BREEZES OF THE WIND
NO MATTER HOW STILL THE SILENCE IS
NO MATTER HOW THROBBING IS THE PAIN
NO MATTER HOW MANY TEARS THAT FALL
I KNOW THAT JESUS KNOWS MY NAME.
NO MATTER HOW DEEP MY LONGINGS ARE
NO MATTER HOW EMPTY IS MY SOUL
NO MATTER HOW MANY PRAYERS I PRAY
OR CRIES TO BE MADE WHOLE
NO MATTER HOW WIDE THE CREVICE IS
NO MATTER HOW FAR I FEEL FROM HOPE
NO MATTER HOW TAUNTED IS MY MIND
I KNOW THAT JESUS HOLDS ME CLOSE.
FOR THIS, I HAVE JESUS.

What are you going through today?
Do your day-to-day problems seem endless and wearisome; threatening to over take you and pull you under? Do you feel like you’re pressing hard against a raging current of tough situations that you have no answers for? Does the road your walking on feel like it will never change, never end, never stop being hard?
I understand this road; but most of all, God does. It is for all of these things and more, that we can find rest and reach for hope in the provision of God giving of Himself to us.
His love is endless, His mercy is sure, His promises are free for the taking and so much more.
Jesus offers you Himself. A perfect package of love, peace, wisdom, guidance for uncertain times and calm for those wild days when life is just plain out – of – control!
Jesus invites you to come. Find rest in the shadow of the Almighty God. It is here, beneath His wings that you will find safety from this troubled world and rest for your weary soul. (Psalm 91)
“Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. This I declare about the LORD: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him.”
Psalm 91:1-2 (NLT)
