There was Jesus!
Something powerful just happened to me as I was driving. The song- “There was Jesus” by Zach Williams came on the radio. As I was singing along and listening to the words a powerful emotion came over me.
“When the life I built came crashing to the ground.
When the friends I had were nowhere to be found.
I couldn’t see it then but I can see it now.
There was Jesus!
“I couldn’t see it then but I can see it now- There was Jesus.” Wow! How strongly that verse hit me!
My divorce was 15 years ago but it was such a pivotal moment in my life. It truly shaped the person whom I am today. Prayer and faith got me through that time. But it just dawned on me that through it all there was Jesus. He was right alongside me. Lifting me up when I could not do it for myself. Speaking words of wisdom and truth into me. He never left my side. He was the friend who walked by my side when I felt so alone. He was the listening ear when I felt noone understood. He was the encouraging heart that saw the good in me, still. THERE WAS JESUS!
I have always known that my faith and prayer helped me get through that difficult time, but the words from this song solidified it . Never did I think about it. He was there the whole time. I am filled with so much joy and gratitude in my heart and soul right now.
“In the waiting and the searching
In the healing and the hurting
like a blessing buried in the broken pieces.”
“Every minute, every moment
of where I have been and where I am going
Even when I didn’t know it
or couldn’t see it
There was Jesus. “
So when we feel burdened, defeated, lonely, sad or not heard……He is there! We do not always understand His ways or His timing but He is there beside us.
Thank you Jesus!
