Give Me Jesus

To anyone who saw my FB today this is more of the same so sorry for the repeat, but I'm not restricted by a maximum number of characters on here. Since I tend to be wordy that can get in the way somemtimes :)

I was listening to the song "Give Me Jesus" by Fernando Ortega this morning and it touched me more than it ever has before. Hearing, "You can have all this world, but give me Jesus", made me think about how that really is enough. Trials, friends, family, money, status, and possessions all come and go but Jesus never leaves. He is the one who makes it possible for us to have so much more than even the best of this world can ever offer. For me that is unimaginable, but I have hope in it. So today I am so thankful for the greatest gift God has ever given me, his son. I only wish everyone knew the gift was theirs as well if they choose to accept it and endure to the end.


Give Me Jesus (Fernando Ortega, album Home)

In the morning when I rise
In the morning when I rise
In the morning when I rise, give me Jesus

Give me Jesus
Give me Jesus
You can have all this world,
But give me Jesus

When I am alone
When I am alone
When I am alone, give me Jesus

Give me Jesus
Give me Jesus
You can have all this world,
But give me Jesus

When I come to die
When I come to die
When I come to die, give me Jesus

Give me Jesus
Give me Jesus
You can have all this world
You can have all this world
You can have all this world
But give me Jesus

that song touches me every time I hear it. Usually I tear up. It's simple in wording, to the point, and reminds us of what we really need. Thanks for bringing that up and reminding us all again.
