I chose to dedicate this song to Jesus because the lyrics explain exactly how I feel. I do not know about anybody else, but I honestly do not feel this way every day. Some days I get overwhelmed with daily activities that I have to dig deep to come up with a “praise”. However, over the past three weeks I have this renewed vigor and vitality for Jesus, and I am not ashamed to express it
This new thing that has come over me is hard to put into words. It reminds me of a famous quote from a famous song: “When I think of the goodness of Jesus and what He has done for me, my soul cries out hallelujah thank God for saving me”. It is like an Epiphany. It brings joy, peace and happiness to my soul.
Folks this man Jesus is real. This is not a joke. When we surrender all to Him, exciting things will happen in our lives. In the book of Matthew chapter 11:29-30 Jesus entreat us: “Take my Yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and you shall find rest unto your souls. Yes! My Yoke is easy, and my burden is light”. Knowing what we know about Jesus, how can anyone continue to resist such an offer.
I dare anyone to do what I did. I shed the cares and burdens of this world and took the Yoke of Jesus upon myself. Today, I can see and feel the results. “O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man who trust in him” (Psalm 107:1).
I’ve always loved this song Bro. Noel….it is very moving and speaks the thoughts of many hearts!
May God blesses your heart wholly Minister Glenda. This song is simply adorable. It has been around for a long time, but it stopped me cold lately, when I heard it in an advertisement. I thought about dedicating it to Jesus. I was a little apprehensive, so I did some research. Joe Cocker dedicated this song to his diseased mom whom he thought was in heaven.
Thanks a lot for your input.
Thank you Noel….that’s very interesting information about Joe Cocker.
God Bless you my friend!
If only we knew how real. He is such a friend, yes, the yoke of Jesus is worth bearing.
Indeed! It is such a lovely feeling to know that I am not the only who have experienced unspeakable joy. It does not happen all the time, but when it does it is fantastic.
Thanks nuvofelt. I truly appreciate your input. God blesses.
Amen! That was beautiful! And I totally agree!
God Bless You, Noel!
I can’t listen to the video with my connection, but I have to agree that He is beautiful and that knowing, loving and serving the Lord Jesus is the greatest thing in life.
Truly, we serve an incredibly amazing Saviour who loves us with an everlasting love and gave Himself for us.
Angela, I could not have said it better. One of the most incredible things about Him is His patience. He does not turn us away when we fall. He picks us up over and over again.
Thanks Angela, for a truly enlightening comment.
Amen and Amen! Jesus is real!! Thanks Noel for the post…very encouraging.
