Tag Archives: Cry out to Jesus

In The Middle of Your Mess

Weary soul are you lost and feeling hopeless
Have the troubles of this life crushed your strength
Have you wallowed in despair 
Just to find there's sorrow there 
Does it seem like all you do is all in vain

Don't give up on your dreams and your desires 
There is one who can bring all these to pass
In the middle of your mess
He still sees you at your best
He's just waiting for the day when you will call

Jesus, Jesus come and rescue me
Jesus, Jesus open my eyes to see
All the plans you have for me

Jesus, Jesus my hope us in your hands
Jesus, Jesus help me to understand  
You've redeemed me, set me free
Forever yours I want to be
I give my life to you. I give my life to you

The Mercy That I Seek

Somewhere in the darkest night He’s waiting
Waiting for my praise to rise to Him
Somewhere in my deepest need He answers
Filling me with His amazing grace
Somewhere in my heart there is a witness 
Urging me to bring more souls to Him
Somewhere in my weakness He will strengthen
Sending me to sow the seeds of faith

I just need to cry out
I just need to listen
I just need to hear Him when He speaks
I just need to praise Him
I just need to worship
He will give the mercy that I seek

How amazing is our God
Oh, how gracious is His love
Oh, how wonderful He is each day to me
All my worship and my praise
All to Him In Jesus name
What a savior, what a friend indeed

I Cry Out

I cry out in the desert
I cry out in the valley
I cry out in the darkness
I cry out in the deep

I cry out when I’m lonely
I cry out when I’m sad
I cry out when in sorrow
I cry out when I’m bad

You incline your ear to me
When I’m filled with misery
You pour out your loving grace
When I cry out with my praise

Holy, holy Lord I love you
Holy, holy Lord I praise you
Holy, holy Lord I worship
All my heart I give to you

It may seem sometimes to the reader that I must have it all together. I read your comments on these words and I am humbled and blessed that they touch you the way they do. I give God glory for using me as a fountain to pour out these writings to you. But that is all I am. A vessel that is overflowing with praise so much that these words just spill out as I sit at my computer. When I went through my cancer battle I learned to listen to His voice, and He started giving me these words. They reflect my life though, my thoughts, my desires, my heart. Only God knows my heart. Only he can bring these things out of it. Only he can bring the truth out.

The truth is I am a sinner saved by grace, just like you. I have the same struggles and maybe more. The truth is I am not near as close to God as I would like to be. The truth is I cry out to Him often. Then I remember that the psalmist says God inclines His ear to me. Like a loving Father, He stoops down and outs His ear near my lips to make sure He can hear every syllable I speak. He cares so much for me that He wants me to come running to Him. He wants me to communicate my deepest fears and failures. Then he will lift me out of that place and pout me back on solid ground, back within the walls of His fortress. He loves me so much. He loves you so much!

Psalm 116:2 King James version
Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.

A Simple Lesson

There are times that I feel invincible
That no harm can come unto me
Then the enemy comes
He grabs me buy the arms
And the trials begin to surround me

It is then that I cry out to Jesus
I pray He will hear my voice
Then I hear Him say
I’ll show you the way
By calling you made the right choice

Suddenly it seems I am floating
In a sea of great joy and peace
In the midst of this test
He gives me His rest
My worry is transformed to ease

The lesson I share is quite simple
No matter the trouble you have
Just cry out to Him
Then you’ll always win
He will come and surround with His love
