Whom do you turn to when trouble comes?
Who can comfort when pain visits you?
Whom do you turn to when health, wealth, and prosperity leave you?
Whom do you seek for peace when there is pain all around you?
Whom do you turn to when the world offers you no hope?
Whom do you seek when you need to be satisfied?
Whom do you run to for shelter when the storm comes?
Whom do you tell your most secret thoughts to?
Who do you thank for all you have? (talents, shelter, food, …)
Jesus! It is Jesus and only Jesus you need to seek.
Jesus is strong when you are weak.
Jesus is safe and secure to stand on when you are standing on quicksand.
Jesus is a comforter when you see despair.
Jesus is the hope when the worlds shows you none.
Jesus is the satisfaction to every need.
Jesus is joy when trouble comes.
Jesus is with you when your friends leave you.
But, not only in our need:
Jesus is better when the world looks the best,
Jesus is full of love when the world pretends to love you,
Jesus redeems you when the world tells you that you are fine,
Jesus changes in you what the world tells you to love,
Jesus gives you perseverance when you want to follow your heart,
Jesus listens carefully to your prayers when the charmer tries to seduce you,
Jesus is with you when you are in no apparent need,
Jesus knows best when secular wisdom sounds pious,
Jesus gives more that the world could ever give,
Jesus is your provider when we live in abundance,
Jesus satisfies when the world fills with air,
Jesus creates when the world copies,
Jesus loves when the world lusts,
Jesus is the real treasure when it seems like the world is filled with them,
Jesus conquers death when sin brings you to it,
Jesus is the Lord of all creation. He owns the world and it obeys Him.
It is Jesus; only Jesus !
