Jesus Will Help You Live Again

Jesus Will Help You Live Again

Back during the newlywed days, we lived life for the now
And during pillow talk shared our future hopes and dreams.
Love filled our talks about tomorrows, no idea of the griefs and sorrows
A destiny in the ensuing decades would someday bring.

Without Jesus as Savior
How do people face tomorrow
With the tears, they’ll be crying
Because their spouse is dying.
Jesus will mend your broken heart and will help you live again.

In empty rooms, you feel the gloom
Where love and laughter once filled the day.
Photo albums chronicle where you’ve been
Tell the story of the life together lived.

Without Jesus as Savior
How do people face tomorrow
With the tears, they’ll be crying
Because their spouse is dying.
Jesus will mend your broken heart and will help you live again.

I wrote this with my wife in the hospital awaiting movement to hospice care. My heart is still breaking. My tears still flowing. I know Jesus will mend my broken heart and help me live again.
