    What a beautiful, powerful song. I was having a rough day and was in my car trying to run errands and turned the radio on. “Let me tell you about my Jesus” was playing and I felt so uplifted and started singing the song with her and praising our awesome God.

      I can relate to Anne Wilson. 2 of my grandparents died in 2022. I was 11 and could not get over it. It was the very fist person I lost.I really am sorry for Anne and any of you who have lost someone that is really hard. I wish you all happiness.

    I love the song.. I lost my son to a massive heart attack August 2010. He was my oldest. I am truly blessed to have 2 more son’s. The words of Annie’s song is so true. Our God is an AWESOME God!!! You never get over losing someone, but with God’s help you learn how to live with it..

  • I LOVE THIS so much, thanks for being vulnerable and sharing your story,,Anne.

    I recently lost my 20 year old son, while visiting my oldest son this song popped up on iTunes. The video had some similarities with my family. The song is absolutely beautiful- then I listened to Anne’s testimony- so powerful. God definitely is using Anne’s story to inspire and give us hope during these tragic times. God is my only hope. Thank you Anne

    Over the course of 66 years, I’ve found that my Jesus can be found in the big moments along Life’s Highway…but mostly in the small ones. I lost my wonderful wife & best friend Teri Lynn in 2019. Our folks are gone…our families…our only child didn’t live long…these days of COVID and upheaval in the world are lonely indeed — except for my Jesus, and the love He shared with us and through us. I love this song and this tender young heart!

    Anne- Our family here in Virginia has been touched by your song from your heart! It is such a beautiful heart felt song God has blessed your heart with to share with this Nation and the World! We have 3 handsome God fearing sons ages 19-25 and I thank God for them every day! Hope this scripture encourages you more to write what’s on your heart! Jeremiah 29:11- I know the Plans I have for you declares the Lord. They are plans for peace and not disaster, plans to give you a future filled with hope!

    Thank you for sharing your story. I lost my Dad last year and can relate to the loss of a dear loved one. This song is wonderful and inspiring. I heard it on moody radio 91.1 FM in Tampa, FL
    May God bless you to continue to create uplifting music.

    We did not lose our son physically but rather to the darkness of this world. Our hearts break but the battle is not over. We will choose to trust in our Lord Jesus Christ.

    My daughter is in ICU alcohol overdose. I woke up this morning heavy with worry and hopelessness. God put this song on my heart and the line “He makes a way where there ain’t no way” kept running through my head over and over and helped me refocus on the goodness and power of our God who has the whole situation in His hands. He is the God of hope.

    My 16 year old granddaughter was killed in a tragic accident in November. My Jesus was her very favorite song. She had it on her phone and listened to it alot. This song was played at her funeral. After basketball games are over at the high school she attended, this song is played while people left the gym. My husband and I think this song was for her too. Never will quit missing her. She had a strong Christian belief and loved Jesus with all her heart. She would say, ” Going to church to get me some Jesus”. Bless you Anne Wilson for writing this song. It blesses our hearts every time we hear it. ❤

    I have absolutely loved the song “My Jesus”. It has spoken to my heart since the first time I heard it. Today however I was having a quiet time with Jesus and was singing worship songs using my phone. I watched the video and realized it was about her losing her brother. It just hit me on a whole new level. I lost both my sons to suicide. The oldest in 2008 and my youngest in 2013. It just brought me to tears. Jesus is so very good, and He is a constant help in everything life throws our way.

  • Jodie Weddle says:

    What a beautiful song & the message is heaven sent! We must share His word and His love with the world at this very difficult time. He is “My Jesus” and he died to be “Your Jesus.”

  • Kaliope says:

    Thank you for this beautiful song I love to shout the words out let me tell you about my Jesus when I shot myself and he rescued me let me tell you about my Jesus how much he loved me how he slowed the bullet down into my stomach and his powerful arm moved it into my spine it never touched an organ let me tell you about my Jesus months later he pushed it until they retrieved it out of my back so I wouldn’t be paralyzed and let me tell you about my Jesus how I wear that bullet now as my story and my testimony thank you my dear for the beautiful song
