Hold Me Jesus

I discovered Rich Mullins only a few months before he was killed. His death had a huge impact on me. Where before I had been supremely grateful for his music, I became awed at the fact that God used him so powerfully to affect not only my life but millions of others in his short lifetime.

Hold Me Jesus probably saved my life. I had a bad childhood, and I wasn't always sure that God was there. I mean, I knew He was there, but I didn't understand that He was there holding me and hurting for me, and crying with me. I heard Hold Me Jesus on the radio one night and it hit me really strongly: Jesus really does want me to have peace! I've been clinging to that song, and dozens of others of Rich's beautiful songs, ever since.

"Obeying God cost Jesus His life, never assume that it will cost you anything less." -Rich Mullins

I find myself grieving and celebrating Richard Wayne Mullins passing anew even now. So thankful God blessed us with him and that he finished the race winning:)

I agree, Rich Mullins has really impacted me. Especially Hold Me Jesus. I was in awe the first time I heard. I am glad Rich Mullins has been brought to your life too.
