"I Cling to Jesus"

The title of my album is the very first song that I ever wrote. It came from a time when I was very broken and hurt with everything and everyone around me. The visual I have is of me on the floor in my son’s room crying out to God and praying for Him to get me through. My dog Homer (who has since then died from cancer) sat with me the whole time with his head on my lap and from time to time he would go sit at the door and make sure no one was there and then come back and lay his head in my lap as I grieved. Though the song is specific to that one day in my life, I can honestly say there have been many other days when I felt the same way. When all around me things went wrong and the only one I could turn to and CLING to was Jesus. I wish that I could say this life is so wonderful and happy all of the time, but the truth is, my life like so many others, is full of trouble. John 16:33 tells us “In this world you will have tribulation, but take heart, for I have overcome the world.” And that is why when things go wrong, and when things happen that I just cannot understand, “I Cling to Jesus”, and He carries me through.
