Only Jesus

Only Jesus is a song that was written and recorded so long ago that I can’t remember

the date of the original recording.

I do remember that the song was indicative of what was going on in my life as a young man.

I have always striven to be honest and work hard to better myself.

Sometimes things got so hectic no matter how I tried I always seemed to come up short.

If I took one step forward someway, somehow I would end up two steps back.

I’m not ashamed to say it was a dark and desperate time in my life.

I was dealing with a the fact that I made some bad decisions in life and I was afraid of failure.

But God being the good and merciful God that He is got me through those dark times.

I lost my grandmother, I lost my son and I almost lost my mind.

At one point in my life it seems I was surrounded by mostly negative people.

But God being the good and gracious Father that he is overlooked my faults.

He gave me strength, courage, wisdom and the intestinal fortitude to continue striving to

become a better person.

I attended Gold Coast School of Insurance where I studied my you know what off to

complete the 200 hours required to get The Florida Property and Casualty Insurance License.

I passed the class and the final exam required to fulfill the criteria established by the

State of Florida. Then once again I studied my you know what off and I pass the State Exam.

I worked very hard just to have the Florida Department Of Financial Services, Bureau Of Licensing

deny my application, because of a Felony Arrest dating back to 2002.

There was some people that was gloating because of my misfortune.

Needless to say I was distraught and felt rejected by mankind.

I was back in that dark place of depression and desperation once again.

But I knew that God works in mysterious ways and certain things must come to pass.

To complete our testimony and to give God the Glory.

Although, I felt somewhat defeated I did my best to project a positive outward appearance

I appealed the denial of my application for my Insurance license and took two classes at

Miami Dade Community College.

One class was to get appointed as a Notary Public and the other for my security license.

To make a long story short, my application for appointment as a Notary was denied.

I received my Security License but couldn’t find a job because of my past.

My appeal for Insurance License was also denied.

This song, “Only Jesus” although it was written so long ago was very prevalent and an

accurate indication of what was going on in my life during those dark days.

So I decided to record the song, “Only Jesus” one more time.

I contemplated on the direction that my life was going in and decided like Earth, Wind & Fire

I needed to get away. Maybe a change of scenery who put an end to that downward spiral and

sinking feeling that I was experiencing.

Georgia here I come, even though I wasn’t sure what city I would end up in I was on my way.

Trying to help someone who I thought was a friend I took his advice and ended up in Macon, GA.

Things was okay in Macon, GA but not quite what I was hoping for.

My ship was sinking fast and I was almost on the verge of giving up when I received an

unexpected phone call. Yes, it was The Florida Department of Financial Services telling me that

they decided to give me my Insurance License.

To God be the glory, I moved back to Florida faster than when I left.

But, it’s not over yet, God is still working on me………….To Be Continued.

Only Jesus (Song Lyrics)

Yeah though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death

I will fear no evil for thou art with me

Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me

I remember when I was down

Couldn’t seem to get my feet back on the ground

Everything I tried to do would turn out wrong

My world had fallen down left me in a state of desperation

Just as I was about to give in

Jesus came along so strong and wise

With His Love so true he made me realize

What I was I was missing

He made me see the light

Now everything is alright

Only Jesus

Can turn your world around

Only Jesus

Give you a brand new start

Only Jesus

Set your feet back on the ground

Only Jesus (Only Jesus)

Only Jesus

Can turn your world around

Only Jesus

Give you a brand new start

Only Jesus

Set your feet back on the ground

Only Jesus (Only Jesus)

I remember days of stormy weather

Couldn’t seem to get my life together

I didn’t know what to do

My life had no direction

I didn’t know what to do

My life had no purpose

Just as I was about to give in

Jesus came along so strong and wise

With His Love so true he made me realize

What I was I was missing

He made me see the light

Now everything is alright

Only Jesus

Can turn your world around

Only Jesus

Give you a brand new start

Only Jesus

Set your feet back on the ground

Only Jesus (Only Jesus)

Only Jesus

Can turn your world around

Only Jesus

Give you a brand new start

Only Jesus

Set your feet back on the ground

Only Jesus (Only Jesus)

No matter (No matter)

What they say about me

I have no reason to doubt me

Cause I got a heart of gold

Ways of the world

Make my heart grow cold

Earth Wind and Fire

I’m here to inspire

You to pursue your hearts desire

Put God first that’s what’s required

Rejected by man

But favored by God

There’s still hope for me yet, Ha!

Only Jesus

Can turn your world around

Only Jesus

Give you a brand new start

Only Jesus

Set your feet back on the ground

Only Jesus (Only Jesus)

Only Jesus

Can turn your world around

Only Jesus

Give you a brand new start

Only Jesus

Set your feet back on the ground

Only Jesus (Only Jesus)

Jesus is the way, the truth and the life

He saved my soul and made me whole

What He’s done for me I know He’ll do for you

What He’s done for me I know He’ll do for you

So believe me when I say

Believe me when I say

Only Jesus

Can turn your world around

Only Jesus

Give you a brand new start

Only Jesus

Set your feet back on the ground

Only Jesus (Only Jesus)

Only Jesus

Can turn your world around

Only Jesus

Give you a brand new start

Only Jesus

Set your feet back on the ground

Only Jesus (Only Jesus)
