Song for the moment: Cry Out for Jesus

Somehow, I woke up VERY late for work this morning and had to cancel out on my carpool to get in on time. So, I drove in solo this morning...and maybe a little faster than usual (shhhhh... It's a secret!).

Anyways, normally I listen to some sort of Prog rock in the car... or some of the classics. But, nothing normally on the Christian music stations on XM Radio. But, as I was flipping through the channels this morning, I stumbled upon one of the Christian music stations and for whatever reason, felt very drawn to it. So, I went with it and gave it a listen.

As I turned the corner for the Livingston Campus of RU (my cut-through to the Busch Campus), I heard this song...which really sums up where I stand with my faith right now.

I do feel like my faith is getting a little stronger every day...and this really sums up what I have been looking for all of this time.

Cry Out To Jesus
by Third Day

To everyone who's lost someone they love
Long before it was their time
You feel like the days you had were not enough
when you said goodbye

And to all of the people with burdens and pains
Keeping you back from your life
You believe that there's nothing and there is no one
Who can make it right

There is hope for the helpless
Rest for the weary
Love for the broken heart
There is grace and forgiveness
Mercy and healing
He'll meet you wherever you are
Cry out to Jesus, Cry out to Jesus

For the marriage that's struggling just to hang on
They lost all of their faith in love
They've done all they can to make it right again
Still it's not enough

For the ones who can't break the addictions and chains
You try to give up but you come back again
Just remember that you're not alone in your shame
And your suffering

When your lonely
And it feels like the whole world is falling on you
You just reach out, you just cry out to Jesus
Cry to Jesus

To the widow who struggles with being alone
Wiping the tears from her eyes
For the children around the world without a home
Say a prayer tonight

Tina, This is one of my favorite songs. I'm glad you were touched by it and it met you where you are. I only listen to Christian radio anymore but not so with me CD collection. `:)

I Know this song and it is very special. I am glad you stumbled upon it and it got to you. I remember when I was ttc and struggling with that and other things, it was through the songs of a christian artist (Jeremy Camp) that I felt renewed and I'd listen to his songs every time I made that 2 hr trip to the RE (And back).
