Jesus Rescues All

When the storms of life are gathered
When the waves rise up and fall
When it seems they’ll pull me under
Jesus rescues all

When the miry clay surrounds me
When there seems no hope at all
When I’ve floundered in my failure
Jesus rescues all

From the ashes He has pulled me
From the place my faith dissolved
From my wandering in darkness
Jesus rescues all

From my sin that long beset me
From a life that found no calm
From my doubt and disillusion
Jesus rescues all

Now I find myself in His arms
He’s become my all in all
We can have this bles’sed assurance
Jesus rescues all.

Sometimes we forget who God is. We get into tough situations and can’t seem to find our way out. No matter how hard we try, the trials and tests seem to stay with us. We get impatient and lose hope. We wander in a sea of doubt and sorrow, thinking God has abandoned us.

Jesus said He would never leave us or forsake us. He said we would have tribulation, but that we should take courage for He has overcome the world. He is the one who rescued Joseph out of Pharaohs’ hand and exalted him above the nation. He is the one who brought Israel through the Red Sea and buried the Egyptians in that same sea. He is the one who parted the Jordan river for Joseph and knocked down the walls of Jericho. He is the one who gave Samson the strength to bring down the house on the Philistines. He is the one who guided the stone out of David’s’ sling to bring down Goliath. He brought Daniel out of the lion’s den, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego out of the fiery furnace and Jonah out of the belly of a whale. He called Peter from his fishing boat and made him a pillar in the church. He knocked Saul off his horse on the road to Damascus and made him a great apostle. Do you think you’re problem is too big for God? Trust Him. Wait on Him. Believe in Him. Call on His name and He will answer.

Isaiah 41:10 King James Version (KJV)
10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

    Loved it! The poem is beautiful and ties right in with reflection. Often our problems seem so huge that to us or me at times actually do seem too big for even God. The picture you posted on this I am going to try and always remember when I reach those points in my life. This was wonderful Pete. Thanks for sharing. God Bless, SR

        That’s why you need to take these with the meditations and get them published! Think about it! The meditations along with the writing did wonders for me. God Bless, SR
