This song says that whatever we go through just talking to Jesus about it makes it right. However, I can think of the many times when cancer still killed our loved one even though we talked to Jesus about it. I can think of the times that the money didn’t come on time even though we talked to Jesus about it. I can remember of the divorces that still came to pass even though we talked to Jesus about it. Is the Spiritual wrong? Did the little talk with Jesus not do what it was supposed to do?
Then as I ask these troubling questions I come face to face with a view of God and prayer that I say I don’t believe. I say that I don’t believe God is the bubblegum machine in the sky, but I still wonder what good is prayer when what I asked for doesnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t come to past. I wonder if many of us when we sing this song have in our minds that Jesus will make it right by healing the cancer or make it right by giving us the money that we need to pay for the food on the table.
But our slave parents knew that the making it right didn’t always remove the troubles. The making it right didn’t always remove the trials, but making it right meant that God would be with us. When I cry to the Lord Jesus is there, helping me in the pain, helping me in the trouble. God makes the trial bearable. And sometimes God even removes the trouble, but often what happens is the Spirit reminds me that I can make it.
Yes I have trials, but I can make it because I talked with Jesus about it. Yes I have hurts and pains, but I can endure because I talked to Jesus about it. Yes the slave was right; A little talk with Jesus makes it right.
