Monday's Mourning Ministry - Come to Jesus

Come to Jesus

Monday's Mourning Ministry

Searching the Bible on Behalf of us Bereaved Parents
as we Grieve Our Great Loss…

"Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with Me that you also may be where I am.

You know the way to the place where I am going."

Thomas said to him, "Lord, we don't know where you are going, so how can we know the way?"
Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. If you really knew Me, you would know My Father as well. From now on, you do know Him and have seen Him." John 14:1-7

"Come to Jesus" by Chris Rice was played at Merry Katherine's funeral. Her older brother Rollin already loved the song and suggested we use it. I had never heard it before, but wept when he played it for me. It is so inspired and so perfect for her in describing her life and her walk with Jesus. I am so thankful she did "come to Jesus," so that on that dark night, she was able to look up and see "Love passing by" as He lovingly scooped her up into His arms to take her to her home with Him in Heaven.

May it bless your heart and soul and bring you comfort as you hear
"Come to Jesus"...

Untitled Hymn (Come to Jesus)
by Chris Rice

Weak and wounded sinner
Lost and left to die
O, raise your head, for Love is passing by
Come to Jesus
Come to Jesus
Come to Jesus and live!

Now your burden's lifted
And carried far away
And precious blood has washed away the stain, so
Sing to Jesus
Sing to Jesus
Sing to Jesus and live!

And like a newborn baby
Don't be afraid to crawl
And remember when you walk
Sometimes we
Fall on Jesus
Fall on Jesus
Fall on Jesus and live!

Sometimes the way is lonely
And steep and filled with pain
So if your sky is dark and pours the rain, then
Cry to Jesus
Cry to Jesus
Cry to Jesus and live!

O, and when the love spills over
And music fills the night
And when you can't contain your joy inside, then
Dance for Jesus
Dance for Jesus
Dance for Jesus and live!

And with your final heartbeat
Kiss the world goodbye
Then go in peace, and laugh on Glory's side, and
Fly to Jesus
Fly to Jesus
Fly to Jesus and live!
