oh, how I love Jesus....


Oh, how I love Jesus!
 
Master.... Savior... LORD
 
He reaches down with His mighty arms and rescues me when I feel hopeless.
 
He reaches out with His loving arms and embraces me when I am weary.
He stretches forth His nail scarred hands and issues healing when I am in need.
 
He is Powerful.
Mighty.
Strong.
 
He sees broken hearts. He is aware of shattered spirits.
He tenderly touches the tears upon my face and wipes away the evidence of grief.
 
My God, the God who can walk on water;
 raise the dead;
 give blinded eyes their sight;
make the lame to walk and the deaf to hear.
 
He takes what is wrong and makes it right.
 
He cares about our hurting souls. He listens to our wounded cries. He hears the despairing utterances of our lips.
 
He knows.....
He knows the problem. He knows the pain and agony. He knows the outcome, because....
 
He is....
He is the first and the last.
He is the Almighty.
He is all Sovereignty and all Authority.
 
Master of the Sea.
Keeper of the Stars.
Creator of all things.
 
He is Maker. Redeemer. Righteousness. Ruler of all.
 
He is seed to the sower. Bread to the eater. God of the whole earth.
 
He knows the way that we take. He is our souls delight!
 
When we cry out in our frailty and deep need,
He extends sweet mercy upon us and responds.
 
Our unknown is known by Him. Our blindness of spirit becomes His surety as we follow Him.
 
He is HOPE.
He is LIGHT.
He is GRACE.
He is TRUTH.
He is FORGIVENESS.
 
The God who formed the earth and all that is in it,
 
loves us,
tends to us,
comforts us,
heals us,
saves us...
 
He is the great I AM. The beginning and the end.
 
He is faithful. He is true. He is peace. He is Holy.
 
The mere knowledge of who He is becomes our refuge.
 
We can trust without fear because He is our strength and our song and our salvation.
 
He leads us and guides us and never forsakes us.
 
He is the WORD. Perfect and Holy and Righteous.
 
Reaching down to lift me up. Reaching down to fill my heart.
 
Loving.
Caring.
 
He is my all.
 
Oh, How I love Jesus.
Master... Savior.... LORD....
