That’s When Jesus Calls

In the midst of your troubles when life seems so hard
You try to find rest but don’t get very far
Life just seems so messed up wherever you are
That’s when Jesus calls

In the midst of the pain and illness you face
All of your body seems out of place
One thing or another makes your health a waste
That’s when Jesus calls

He calls us to show mercy
He calls us to show grace
He calls us to take heed and look above
When you are at the bottom
Be still and hear His voice
He’s calling you testify
He’s calling you to lift Him high
He’s calling you to tell of His great love

When it seems that we’re in the worst battles of life
And wherever we turn it just adds to our strife
That’s when we have to give praise we’re alive
For that’s when Jesus calls

In the midst of struggle
Mercies are all new
In the midst of struggle
His grace still blesses you
In the midst of struggle
Be careful what you do
This is the best time to praise His name

He calls us to show mercy
He calls us to show grace
He calls us to take heed and look above
When you are at the bottom
Be still and hear His voice
He’s calling you testify
He’s calling you to lift Him high
He’s calling you to tell of His great love

Be At Ease

This world has its troubles that won’t go away
It seems there’s a new disease every day
Just this morning I watched the news and they say
That addiction to video games is not safe

Then there’s cancer and heart disease  flu and a cold
Dementia and Alzheimer’s as we grow old
Lou Gehrig Disease Tommy John elbow
Diabetes and lupus and Crones so much more

Now if any of you have a nasty disease
Especially if you should have one of these
Your situation may be robbing your peace
But I know a way you can be at ease

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
From your understanding now depart
In all your ways let your words give Him praise
And He will direct you all of your days
