I’ve Got Jesus

Do you ever wonder how and why people write the songs they write.

What was the experience that triggered the emotion of happiness, sadness or confusion.

And why was it so compelling that they had to write about it and share it in the form of a song.

I’d like to share my experience and my reason for writing this song.

I’m not sure when it was but at some point I decided that I wanted to live the rest of my life

serving the Lord.

Because of my love for music I also decided that I would best serve the Lord through a music

ministry.

I started pursuing my ministerial credentials and reserved The Julius Littman Performing Arts

Theatre in North Miami Beach for a Gospel Concert.

Subsequently, I started contacting individuals to participate in the Praise and Worship Event.

I was referred to a local church located in Miami Gardens, Florida. Which will remain nameless

at this point.. The individual that referred me to that church thought that they would be a good fit

for such an event.

Since I didn’t have a church home I thought about visiting and possibly joining that church.

I sent an email to the church administrator as listed on the church website. The following day I

followed up the email with a phone call.

Unfortunately, I got no response and soon I realized that I pretty much got snubbed for

whatever reason.

While talking with one of my neighbor and long time friend I was informed that she was a

member of that church. She also informed me that her daughter was attending rehearsal at

the church later that day. She asked her daughter to deliver a message to the church,

hoping that they would contact me. Unfortunately, I got no response from the church and

got snubbed for a second time.

I found out from my neighbor that the church had done some things with a few big name

artist and producers. Which will also remain nameless because it may make it easy for to

figure out the name of the church.

I quickly came to the realization that my name wasn’t big enough to command any

attention or respect from this church.

The sad thing is that it’s not just that one church, there are a lot of churches that share that

same attitude and belief. They embrace people for what they have and what they can contribute

to the offering plate.

I’m not here to judge anyone but if we’re in the business of saving souls, it shouldn’t matter

what you have or don’t have or even how big your name is. I have never seen anywhere in the

Bible where Jesus refused someone because of their economic status or because they didn’t

attend a certain church.

It is unfortunately a common practice in some churches. The pastor robs his congregation and

the only reason it’s not a crime is because he doesn’t use a gun. He uses slick talk and two bit

jive.

I’m sure some people aren’t going to like the things that I am saying. But I am not here to

make friends by telling lies and bending the truth. If it doesn’t apply to you it shouldn’t bother you.

But if the shoe fits, wear it and wear it well.

I may not matter to some people, my children may not matter to some people.

But I know that we matter to Jesus, I know that you matter to Jesus.

And as long as we have Jesus we don’t need anyone else.

I’ve Got Jesus (Song Lyrics)

Mark Who?

No name recognition

You don’t recognize my name

I’m new in the game

I may no be Kanye or Jay-Z

But like Beyonce I’m gonna tell you like this

Like Beyonce I’m gonna tell you like this

I walk like this cause I can back it up (back it up)

I talk like this cause I can back it up (back it up)

I’ve Got Jesus

Too blessed to be stressed

I’ve Got Jesus

Not worried bout’ the the things that I ain’t got

I’ve got Jesus

Not worried about the things that I am not

I’ve Got Jesus

It doesn’t matter who’s against me

I’ve got Jesus

Mark Who?

No name recognition

You don’t recognize my name

I’m new in the game

I may not have a Mercedes Benz

A house or even a place to call home

Sometimes I feel so alone

But like Michael Jackson

Something whispers and lets me know

That I’m not alone

I’ve Got Jesus

Too blessed to be stressed

I’ve Got Jesus

Not worried bout’ the the things that I ain’t got

I’ve got Jesus

Not worried about the things that I am not

I’ve Got Jesus

It doesn’t matter who’s against me

I’ve got Jesus

Mark Who?

No name recognition

You don’t recognize my name

I’m new in the game

I may not Flo Rida

But you that I’m a Rider

Mark is my name

And I’m just a nobody

And I’m riding for Jesus

I’m riding for Jesus

Pressing towards the Mark for the Prize

Of the high calling of God through Christ Jesus

So it doesn’t matter what you think about me

I’ve Got Jesus

Too blessed to be stressed

I’ve Got Jesus

Not worried bout’ the the things that I ain’t got

I’ve got Jesus

Not worried about the things that I am not

I’ve Got Jesus

It doesn’t matter who’s against me

I’ve got Jesus

We’re praising the Lord

We’re praising the Lord

Why can’t we be on one accord

Maybe you think you’re better than me

Or is it your selfish need for

Lust, Glutton and Greed

You spend a milli on your sanctuary

But can’t spare a dollar to feed the needy

A hungry man is a angry man

Money grubbing and greedy

If it was up to you I’d be locked out of heaven

Standing on the corner at 7-11

I got a friend whose name is above all names

Think it’s a game

Jesus is His name

Think it’s a game

Jesus Is His name

I’ve Got Jesus

I’m not gonna let you stress me

I’ve got Jesus

I’m not gonna let you stress me

I’ve Got Jesus

I’m not gonna let you test me

I’ve Got Jesus

Cause I can do all things through Christ Jesus

Through Christ Jesus

Through Christ Jesus
