Sometimes in life, it’s hard to know what to expect. Days seem hopeless, and you are just at a loss of what to do/say. In this song, we are told, pure and simple, that when you don’t know what to say, just say Jesus.
This band is a really cool group of guys. They were at Camp Electric last summer when I was there! If you want to read more about my time at Camp Electric, click here. The lead singer, Mikey, taught one of my vocal classes one day. He is totally amazing! My friends and I got to talk with him alone about music, what inspired their band, and his journey in figuring out that music was what he wanted to do with his life. It was awesome!
Let’s dive right in to this song, shall we? I just love how simple and pure it is. Check it out.
“Life gets tough, and times get hard
It’s hard to find the truth in all the lies…”
It’s all too true sometimes
"If you’re tired of wondering why
Your heart isn’t healing
And nothing feels like home…"
Sometimes it’s just all too hard and you don’t feel like you are getting anywhere… either running in circles, or staying in one place. It’s hard to feel satisfied with where you are at these times!
“When you don’t know what to say
Just say Jesus
There is power in the name
The name of Jesus
If the words won’t come
Cause you’re too afraid to pray
Just say Jesus”
Just say Jesus! There really IS power in His name. His name has the power to get you out of evil situations and to bring light to darkness. Just say JESUS.
I love how this part is said, “If the words won’t come cause you’re too afraid to pray, just say Jesus.”
I think that, often, we are afraid to pray. It may be because of something we’ve done, or because we don’t feel worthy of His help, or because we just want to do something on our own.
“Whisper it now, or shout it out..."
"...Just call out to the Way, the Truth, and the Light”
