“Jesus…You Got To Help Me Make A Stand”

Last night while driving home, James Taylor’s song, “I’ve seen fire and I’ve seen rain” came on. You are probably familiar with it.

The second verse reads;

“Won’t you look down upon me, jesus

You’ve got to help me make a stand

You’ve just got to see me through another day

My body’s aching and my time is at hand

And I won’t make it any other way.”

As I listened to that song and sang along, I thought that many people are in the very position described in that song. I’ve been there & others have.

“Look down upon me Jesus…

You got to help me make a stand…

You’ve got to see me through another day…”

I don’t want you are going through but perhaps that’s your prayer today. Maybe you are discouraged or broken-hearted….maybe you have reached a point where you have said, “Lord I need you….Lord, if you are there, I need you…I won’t make it any other way.”

Jesus loves us and knows our needs. Jesus cares. That doesn’t mean we will never hurt because we will. But, Jesus does care.
