For this, I have Jesus
Our good friend Katrine went to be with Jesus last month. Katrine had struggled with Alzheimer’s disease for the past few years of her life and her husband Bob had been her primary care giver until the end. Rita and myself had visited with Bob & Katrine just a few months ago and were impressed by the love, care, and patience with which Bob attended to the needs of his wife of over fifty years. I talked to Bob just last night on the phone and he shared about overcoming the fear, apprehension and even anger that he felt when Katrine was first diagnosed and where he found the strength to be the support that his wife needed as she struggled with her failing health. “For this, I have Jesus,” was the one thought that kept reminding him of where that strength would come from that would allow and enable him to be the husband that his wife needed. Jesus gave him what he needed.
No matter what circumstance or difficulty life presents us with, “for this I have Jesus.” Jesus more than points the way, He is the way. More than having the answer, Jesus is the answer. More than teaching us about love, Jesus is love. More than telling how to be strong, Jesus is our strength. Whatever your need is, be assured that you will have those needs met if you will only remember and believe, “for this, I have Jesus.”
I am the way, the truth, and the life…
