“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loves us.” (Romans 8:37 NKJ)
“And the grace of our Lord overflowed for me with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 1:14 NKJ)
There’s a song called “Eight Hundred Pound Jesus” by Sawyer Brown. For those who don’t know the song, this guy found a concrete Jesus at a yard sale. He is 8 feet tall and weighs 800 pounds. He is standing with his arms spread wide. Below is part of the song:
“I thought loosin’ my job was the end of the world.“Eight Hundred Pound Jesus” by Sawyer Brown
Till my best pal ran off with my best girl.
I felt suicidal with no real friends.
So I walked outside with a rope in my hand.
Out by that statue there’s a big old tree.
So I stood on his shoulders, and I counted to three.
I had every intention of buying the farm.
But when I jumped off he caught me in his arms.”
Are you having problems? Fall into the loving arms of Jesus. He will catch you then carry you until things improve.
Remember the poem Footprints in The Sand? When you look behind you and only see one set of footprints, that is when Jesus is carrying you. He loves you. He wants to help you. Tell Him your troubles, tell Him your problems. Tell Him you love Him. Jesus is waiting. Call on Him, He will answer you. He is always with us, He is always there for us. So cry out to Jesus. He is waiting for us.
