Untitled Hymn (Come To Jesus) Lyrics 

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! 

Caylee is safe in the arms of Jesus.

Many are grieving the loss of this precious little girl. 

Please keep the Anthony and Grund families in your prayers.

Matthew 5:4 Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.

2 Corinthians 5:1
Now we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands.

Revelation 21:4
He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."

"Everyones grief is exceptional and different." 

Your pain is so overwhelming, so consuming, so numbing, so unrelenting, so completely personal to you. 

How can anyone compare their loss with yours? 

They cant. 

Because there is no pain like yours.
Because its yours.

We are never the same after tragedy strikes us. We get through it, but not over it. 

The Bible doesnt shy away from the reality of grief.
It recognizes what people go through when they lose a spouse (Ruth 1:45)

A child (Genesis 37:34-35)

A friend who dies before you had a chance to say good-bye (2 Samuel 1:26)

Still, we wonder what the point of it all is.

We cannot always understand the why.

But we can lay hold of the Who. No matter what happens to us. No matter what the loss, Gods hand is still stretched out to us.

The Bible does not promise the absence of grief only the presence of God:
"Be merciful to me, O LORD, for I am
in distress, my eyes grow weak with sorrow, my soul and my body with grief." (Psalm 31:9)

Christ's grief was very real in Gethsemane. In fact, it was so intense that the Bible says "his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground" (Luke 22:44).

We, too, come to Gethsemane. The name gethsemane itself means "oil press"—where we feel as if every ounce of life is being squeezed out of us. 

Unlike the disciples, Jesus is not asleep at our Gethsemane.

He knows what this hour is like. 

And where it leads next . . .
After Gethsemane comes Golgotha—The Place of the Skull. 
And again, the cry, "Where are you God?"

Even Jesus at this moment feels forsaken and abandoned.

Where are you, God?

Why have you forsaken me?

Jesus faces Golgotha, the crucible of suffering. A place so terrible, so alone, so dark, that one feels forsaken, even by God. 
Jesus knows Golgotha. He'll go with you up this mountain of grief.

This cross you are asked to carry is too heavy for you. Ask him to help you pick it up. Even he needed help to carry his.

Golgotha leaves its scars.

On hands. On feet. On hearts.

On everything.
