Do you trust me?

Do you trust Me?

Trust, It is a hard thing to give.  Why? You know why—because people often mess up and fail.

I heard a story recently, that I wanted to share with you all.  It’s about Anne Wilson.  She lost her brother when she was 15.  She said that at the time, she lost her brother, The Lord asked her, “Anne, are you going to trust me, or are you not?”   (You can hear her tell her own story, if you click below.)

Boy, those words, “Do you trust me?”—they have ripped through my own heart.  How many times, have I heard the whisper in my own heart—“Do you trust me?”   How many times, have I not answered, or even acknowledged the question, but have gone out, living life as I see best.

Anne, however, did answer.  She told The Lord, “Yes, I trust You.”  

She said that she has been able to see beauty grow from ashes.

I’d like to share again, her song—Let Me Tell You About My Jesus.

Praying we are all encouraged to say, “Yes Jesus, I trust You.” Today, and every day!

Let Me Tell You ‘About My Jesus!!

This week my daughter and I were riding in the car together, and this song came on. There is something about this song, MY JESUS, by Anne Wilson, that I love. We turned up the volume and listened to this bluesy singer, belt out, “Let me tell you ’bout my Jesus.”, as she also detailed the ways that so many of us today are in need. In reality, even if one does not “feel” the need for Jesus–we all “need’ Jesus. So enjoy this great song, but even more–be encouraged–because every thing she sings about is true–Jesus makes a way where there is no way!! Let me tell you ’bout my Jesus!! Amen!! Amen!!

LYRICS: Are you past the point of weary

Is your burden weighing heavy

Is it all too much to carry

Let me tell you ‘bout my Jesus

Do you feel that empty feeling

‘Cause shame’s done all its stealing

And you’re desperate for some healing

Let me tell you ‘bout my Jesus

He makes a way where there ain’t no way

Rises up from an empty grave

Ain’t no sinner that He can’t save

Let me tell you ‘bout my Jesus

His love is strong and His grace is free

And the good news is I know that He Can do for you what He’s done for me

Let me tell you ‘bout my Jesus

And let my Jesus change your life Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, amen, amen

Who can wipe away the tears

From broken dreams and wasted years

And tell the past to disappear

Let me tell you ‘bout my Jesus

And all the wrong turns that you would Go and undo if you could

Who can work it all for your good

Let me tell you about my Jesus

Who would take my cross to Calvary

Pay the price for all my guilty

Who would care that much about me

Let me tell you ‘bout my Jesus

May we Be Encouraged!!
