A Little More Jesus…

Hey guys,

Real quick post today. Super busy weekend followed by a super hectic work week ahead! Forgive my tardiness or lack of posts for the next few days 🙂

I just had a song on my heart all day today. It’s not even a song I really particularly like all that much to be honest. But the words of the chorus really struck a chord ( pun intended :P) with me today.

The song  is ” A Little More Jesus” by Erica Campbell who is one half of the dynamic duo Mary Mary. Now… this song has a really country feel to it which is not my thing at all but I kept humming the chorus today!

The lyrics of the chorus are simply:
” I need a little more Jesus to help me along the way…”

And how true that is in the times we are living in right now( especially after this weekends tragedy in France and the continued terror attacks all over the world).  A time of wars, famine, poverty. Brokenness, despair and tragedy. The world is truly in need of a superhero to come to the rescue. I chose to put my hope in Jesus who is greater than Superman could ever be.

Matthew 24 details a lot of what we are seeing in our world today. It states:

4Jesus told them, “Don’t let anyone mislead you, 5for many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah.’ They will deceive many. 6And you will hear of wars and threats of wars, but don’t panic. Yes, these things must take place, but the end won’t follow immediately. 7Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in many parts of the world. 8But all this is only the first of the birth pains, with more to come.

9“Then you will be arrested, persecuted, and killed. You will be hated all over the world because you are my followers.b 10And many will turn away from me and betray and hate each other. 11And many false prophets will appear and will deceive many people. 12Sin will be rampant everywhere, and the love of many will grow cold. 13But the one who endures to the end will be saved. 14And the Good News about the Kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, so that all nationsc will hear it; and then the end will come. 

Now if that isn’t a sign of foreshadowing…. well… sigh…

The world needs just a little more Jesus…  If you don’t know Him, give him a chance! I mean what’s the worst that could happen? Eternal Life? Freedom? Try Him out!

Here are the remaining lyrics to the song and take a listen down below ( warning it is a super country/bluegrass gospel type of song so if that’s not your thing really listen to lyrics!)

Be blessed

I got too mad and I said too much
Went too far and I almost cussed
No my mama didn’t raise me that way
Lord I need a little help today

I way too sad and I’m crying too long
I can’t keep saying everything is wrong
Yes my life seems way too hard
But ain’t nothin’ too hard for God

I need just a little more Jesus
I need just a little more Jesus
I need just a little more Jesus
I need just a little more Jesus
Hey I need just a little more Jesus
I need just a little more Jesus
To help me along my way

Come in sir

I need just a little more Jesus
I need just a little more Jesus
I need just a little more Jesus
I need just a little more Jesus
Hey I need just a little more Jesus
I need just a little more Jesus
To help me along my way

Hee-eee-eee-y

Problems at work, problems at home
Won’t everybody just leave me alone?
I can’t fix you cause I’m trying to fix me
I’m trying to find help so I’m on my knees

Gotta ache right here, pain right there
Not enough power needed way more prayer
Seems like it’s so hard to pray
Guess that’s why I lost my way
