If Not For Jesus

If not for Jesus.

Oh, if not for Jesus.

Nothing would breathe. Nothing would heave with joy and purpose. Nothing would move or spring up from darkness.

There would be no hope.

No creating.

No music.

No art.

No beauty that steals the air from our lungs.

No glory.

No relationship.

No healing.

No ice cold freedom bursting through steaming deserts.

No refreshment.

No rest.

No leaning back on the chest of acceptance.

No affirmation.

Nothing.

Every good and perfect gift is His.

So, if not for Jesus...
