The Press

If I’m with you when it’s cool
And not with you when it’s hot
What kinda friend am I
When courage I have not

To shield you
To stand in the gap
To intercede for you
As a matter of fact

My love is proven
As I’m with you in life’s heat
Good times are for fairweatherers
But true loyalty isn’t beaten

When public opinion yells
“Crucify him! Hang him high!”
I’ll still be in your corner
Sending prayers toward skies

Of God’s mercy
His unmerited Grace
For he alone is able
To save you, today

From my heart:

I believe that this young man has touched the Father’s heart as he won’t take him(Jussie Smollett) off of mine.

It reminds me of the desperate attempt the woman with an “issue” of blood made to get to Jesus. In breaking the law, she got His attention.

When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment.28 For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.29 And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes? Mark 5:27-30

  1. Love this! Jesus said it well, When Jesus heard it, He said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.”…Mark 2:17
