Where Was Jesus When…?

We have all been through times where we felt the Jesus had forgotten us or that He was too far away to notice our struggles. But I have good news for you. Jesus is never more than prayer away. He walks by your side, holding you up, giving comfort, and heaping blessings on those who call Him, Savior.

Sometimes we don’t realize how near He was, until we look back and realize that we could never have made it through that dark and lonely time without His intervention. Every time I hear the song “There was Jesus”, I am reminded that we are never truly alone if we have a relationship with Jesus.

There Was Jesus

Dolly PartonZach Williams

Every time I try to make it on my own
Every time I try to stand, I start to fall
And all those lonely roads that I have traveled on
There was Jesus

When the life I built came crashing to the ground
When the friends I had were nowhere to be found
I couldn’t see it then but I can see it now
There was Jesus

In the waiting, in the searching
In the healing, in the hurting
Like a blessing buried in the broken pieces
Every minute, every moment
Where I’ve been or where I’m going
Even when I didn’t know it
Or couldn’t see it
There was Jesus

For this man who needs amazing kind of grace (mm-hmm)
For forgiveness and a price I couldn’t pay (mm-hmm, mm-hmm)
I’m not perfect so I thank God every day
There was Jesus
There was Jesus

In the waiting, in the searching
In the healing, in the hurting
Like a blessing buried in the broken pieces
Every minute, every moment
Where I’ve been or where I’m going
Even when I didn’t know it
Or couldn’t see it

There was Jesus
On the mountains
In the valleys
There was Jesus
In the shadows
Of the alleys

There was Jesus
In the fire, in the flood
There was Jesus
Always is and always was, oh No,

I never walk alone
Never walk alone
You’re always there

In the waiting, in the searching
In the healing, in the hurting
Like a blessing buried in the broken pieces
Every minute, every moment
Where I’ve been or where I’m going
Even when I didn’t know it
Or couldn’t see it
There was Jesus

There was Jesus
There was Jesus
There was Jesus

  1. Amen, when led by God, do not see God’s face, but His back. Why is that? We cannot see His face, because we cannot see Him coming. We see God’s back, because we see where He has been, and what He has done in the past. We do not anticipate, or second-guess God. It is only after long reflection that we are finally struck with what God has been doing all along.
