My Blog’s Theme Song

Standard

Cry Out to Jesus

To everyone who’s lost someone they love
Long before it was their time
You feel like the days you had were not enough
When you said goodbye

And to all of the people with burdens and pains
Keeping you back from your life
You believe that there’s nothing and there is no one
Who can make it right

Chorus

There is hope for the helpless
Rest for the weary
Love for the broken heart
There is grace and forgiveness
Mercy and healing
He’ll meet you wherever you are
Cry out to Jesus, Cry out to Jesus

For the marriage that’s struggling just to hang on
They lost all of their faith and love
They’ve done all they can to make it right again
Still it’s not enough

For the ones who can’t break the addictions and chains
You try to give up but you come back again
Just remember that you’re not alone in your shame
And your suffering

Chorus

When you’re lonely
And it feels like the whole world is falling on you
You just reach out, you just cry out to Jesus
Cry to Jesus

To the widow who suffers from being alone
Wiping the tears from her eyes
For the children around the world without a home
Say a prayer tonight

Chorus

  1. I had to double click the video to get to YouTube.

    That is a beautiful song. An important messege for Christ Followers. Whatever your loss, there is someone you can cry out to. Someone who can help you heal.

    “There is hope for the helpless
    Rest for the weary
    Love for the broken heart
    There is grace and forgiveness
    Mercy and healing
    He’ll meet you wherever you are
    Cry out to Jesus, Cry out to Jesus”

  2. heheheheheheh! 🙂

    Ed is VERY smart – he just doesn’t know it perfectly!

    As for your theme song ( did i say it’s so nice to see you in blogland again Sis? – cos it is) 🙂

    So few of us clearly see or understand just what the Infinite is – or how we relate to it – and how it relates with us.

    But relate it definitely does – whether we use our free-will to fully recognise that or not. The choices we make determine the ‘effects’ we ‘see’.

    Love you – and that you laugh more these days.

  3. Hey, Love! Not sure I’m completely back in blogland or just needing a break from fishing. 🙂

    I think the song is a perfect fit for all of us needing to consider Jesus. No matter the difficulty…He is the answer.

  4. I think Jesus was a great role model. We can all learn from how he led his life. I also find much wisdom in all the world’s holy books, including the Christian Bible.

    You could say I try to follow Jesus example, at least in some ways, except for the business about a supreme being, and life after death. 🙂

  5. You know, Ed, if I thought I could say something to change your mind, that would be a lightbulb moment, I’d certainly say it. I think the main thing I’ve come to know: If you believe…then you just can’t help believing. That said, I sure do like your Bible study posts. 🙂

    Thanks, Darla! It speaks my heart. 😉

  6. Oh, amen and amen.

    I wrote the chorus lyrics down in my journal. The video’s powerful, too. I needed that reminder.

  7. Wow, I haven’t heard this before Michelle, it was such a blessing to me today.

    Congratulations on your anniversary 🙂

  8. That is a wonderful song, to be sure. The message is so powerful and inviting; it speaks to our desire to cry out to someone bigger than we are.

    BTW, when Third Day was as the Zellwood Sweet Corn Festival a few years ago, my wife and I got to spend some time with them. They are a wonderful group of people who obviously love the Lord.

    I hope you’re eating the fish you catch. What are you fishing for? Bass, trout, or other?

  9. 😀 That fits you and your blog. 🙂 Love it. It was great to chat with you yesterday. I pray you are well today, sister. Love you!

  10. I love this song. I saw Mac perform it on piano at a concert a while back… he had pictures of children they’ve helped through world vision playing the background. They released the song early right after Katrina hit. Mr & Mrs Bad got me hooked on Third Day a long time ago.

  11. great song and lyrics there! Just got a quick question. Say i became a christian back in my teenage years and was really going for it but over time and through college and work the fire kinda died down, and I started to do things i shouldn’t, going where i shouldn’t.. and i know its wrong, but how do i get out of it?

    On one hand, the church and the song says ‘all you have to do is cry out to jesus, cry out louder, get on your knees longer, go to church more often, read the bible more often and he will come and save you’. You of yourself cannot do anything until God comes and decide to relieve you of your torment and give you a pure heart. So the ball is kind of in god’s court.

    on the other hand i’ve heard preachers thunder, ‘You have to choose holiness!, until you knowingly and consciously choose it you are not free and the ball is in your court’

    My question is i know i’m supposed to do all of it, and I do it. But when i read the bible, get on my knees and plead, 5 minutes into it i feel such a hypocrite knowing that i will be like the dog ‘going back to the vomit’ despite all the pleading to be set free. So i thought why be such a hypocrite, if i’m going to sin why should i be praying or reading the bible and acting all holy.

    Yet on the other hand I feel that if i just keep up with praying and pleading somehow just someway I’ll be miraculously set free from my sinful lifestyle. But I can’t seem to last through that pleading, i’ll go a week really reading the bible and wanting to get answers from it, then i’ll stop for half a year. i thought i should stop my farce of pleading and praying and maybe someday the true heart and intention to be set free will miraculously come upon me, then i’ll go about trying to live a holy life.

    Which begs the question I have a free will, but how exactly do I choose to have that heart that wants to change?

    Am i supposed to choose it knowingly and consciously until god is pleased with my choice, or am i supposed to pray and plead and afflict myself until god gives it to me, or maybe god has intended that i live this way in my sin, learn my lessons and then at 45 he sovreignly gives me the heart to change, or will god see that i’m incorrigible (even though i have earnestly sought redemption for many years through many means), decide i’m quite a useless brat and never give me this heart to change and i’ll be condemned to hell?

  12. Hi, Lee. Welcome. That’s not a very quick question. But I’ll see if I can give a succinct, yet complete answer.

    You can’t save yourself. Only God will save you.
    You can’t change your heart. Only God will change it.
    You have no power over your sin. Only God has the power to help you overcome.

    He has definitely called you or you wouldn’t even care. Submission to Him, giving over your life for His, bowing down to Him as Lord and Master…that’s the next step.

    I’m not talking about reading your Bible and going to church, although those are excellent means of learning. I’m talking about believing Jesus did the work on the cross. Completely. Finally. It is done. You have no work to do to gain your salvation.

    If you believe His work was finished and you have nothing else to do to “gain” salvation, but trust in Him…the scripture says you will be saved:

    For if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord (Lord as in bowing down to Him, let Him be your Master) and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead (He’s alive and still walks and talks with us), you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. ~Romans 10:9-10

    That’s salvation. Trusting in Him to do the work.

    It is by faith in Him, through His abundant grace that you are saved. Not by anything you do, so you don’t get to boast about being such a “good Christian”.

    Will you change? Yes. Not on your own, but through His Spirit guiding you. At the point of salvation you are set apart for Him and His Spirit indwells you (That’s when the holiness begins…not your power, but His). His Spirit will lead you. Listen to His Spirit. But don’t fall for the lie that you will live sinless…it’s not possible this side of heaven.

    If you are hearing condemnation, defeat, “you’ll never get it right, Lee, so just give up!”…please know, that is the enemy. His will is to steal, kill and destroy. He doesn’t want you to listen to the Holy Spirit. He wants to devour you.

    So how will you know when the Spirit is speaking? He loves you. He will confirm His love for you. He will show you right vs. wrong. When He prods for right living, listen to Him. If you aren’t sure what “right living” means…read Galatians 5. Paul lays it out distinctly. Not that those works will save you, but now you have the power to overcome your flesh through His Spirit.

    His Spirit speaking…you walking with Him…that’s the abundant life on earth. Will you still hurt and struggle? Yes. He did not promise us a life on earth pain-free. But, He did promise to walk with you through the struggle, whatever the struggle may be. Sex, drugs, alcohol, lust, covetting, ugly anger…whatever the issue…He will help you overcome. Not that you won’t stumble. But when you do, you still have Him within. He won’t leave you. Nothing can separate you from His love. Repent and move on.

    His mercies are new every morning.
    His grace is sufficient for every day.

    He loves you more than anyone on this earth EVER will. If you know how much He loves you, you will be able to trust Him. He only wants your best good.

    Your heart changes when you trust Him.
    That’s what “cry out to Jesus” means.

    Did this even come close to answering your question?
