I must tell it to Jesus

No, I didn't get the title mixed up ... it is just a good combination of two songs that just keep coming to my mind right now: "I Must Tell Jesus" and "Tell It To Jesus".

So why do I keep thinking of them? Without a doubt I have been through worse things, although for me, I do know that I wasn't right with the Lord at the time. Could that be the difference? Maybe. And it's not like I have anything to be really sad for, he's alive and well and in the Father's care. What better place could he be? (don't answer that!) I would say it's a mental thing, since I wasn't quite this upset when he went to Louisiana, but that doesn't make it any less so. So what's a girl to do?

I must tell Jesus all of my trials; I cannot bear these burdens alone;
In my distress He kindly will help me; He ever loves and cares for His own.

I must tell Jesus all of my troubles; He is a kind, compassionate friend;
If I but ask Him, He will deliver, Make of my troubles quickly an end.

Tempted and tried, I need a great Savior; One Who can help my burdens to bear;
I must tell Jesus, I must tell Jesus; He all my cares and sorrows will share.

O how the world to evil allures me! O how my heart is tempted to sin!
I must tell Jesus, and He will help me; Over the world the victory to win.

I must tell Jesus! I must tell Jesus! I cannot bear these burdens alone;
I must tell Jesus! I must tell Jesus! Jesus can help me, Jesus alone.

Are you weary are you heavy-hearted? Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus
Are you grieving over joys departed? Tell it to Jesus alone

Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus, He is a Friend that's well known
You've no other such a friend or brother, Tell it to Jesus alone

In the end, that's all we can do ... tell it to Jesus!

I did some searching in the Bible and came across a few verses that touched my heart, and I hope they are a blessing to you as well.

John 14:18 ~ "I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you."

II Corinthians 1:3-4 ~ "Blessed be God, even the Father of ourLord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God."
