None But Jesus

As I sat in prayers this morning (and it was a truly amazing prayer meeting) I was just blown away by the presence of the Spirit.  A song that I havent heard for a very long time but one which is quite timely , was played.  Isn't it awesome how things just happen at the right time. 

The song was None But Jesus.  As I listened to the words the stuff of the past year, the stresses, the worries and the fears just seemed to disolve into nothingness.  And it got me thinking, how often do we let the things of life completely overwhelm us, distract us and if left unchecked will in some cases even destroy us?

Jesus said “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” - Matthew 11:28-30

Friends, the stuff of this life has no power over us.  Satan would tell us otherwise and he will try and distract and confuse, and tell us that their is something wrong with the way we are.  He will try and get us so busy that eventually we will burn out and even be so caught up in our own ability and ideas that we forget that we are nothing without Jesus. The reality is that in life, all we really need is Jesus.

None But Jesus lyrics
Songwriters: Fraser, Brooke;

In the quiet, in the stillness
I know that You are God
In the secret of Your presence
I know there I am restored

When You call I won?t refuse
Each new day again I?ll choose

There is no one else for me
None but Jesus
Crucified to set me free
Now I live to bring Him praise

In the chaos, in confusion
I know You?re sovereign still
In the moment of my weakness
You give me grace to do Your will

So when You call I won?t delay
This my song through all my days

There is no one else for me
None but Jesus
Crucified to set me free
Now I live to bring Him praise

All my delight is in You, Lord
All of my hope, all of my strength
All my delight is in You, Lord, forevermore

Today I was reminded that we CANNOT afford to miss just stopping what we are doing and spending time with God and allowing Him to refresh, restore and to refocus us.  

Are you confused? Distracted? Ready to burnout? None but Jesus.
