For today’s #WorshipWedneday Steve reminds us to see Jesus in the present …
Whilst I love this song musically (featuring Dolly Parton – what’s not to like!), it’s the lyrics which make it one I want to listen to again and again. How many times is it that only when we look back do we see the presence of Jesus? Guiding us, supporting us, nurturing us, protecting us, loving us.
Jesus is always present in our lives, so rather than looking back and being grateful for his presence, how much better to recognise him in the here and now and enjoy that love, support, peace and protection. People and circumstance will come and go, but ‘There was Jesus’, ‘always is and always was’.
In the waiting, in the searching In the healing and the hurting Like a blessing buried in the broken pieces Every minute, every moment Where I've been and where I'm going Even when I didn't know it or couldn't see it There was Jesus
