Terrian Honestly We Just Need Jesus

Terrian’s Simple Declaration: “Honestly, We Just Need Jesus”

Have you seen it lately, too? Mandy Bowman here. The world seems to have gone bonkers, and so I find myself repeatedly asking this question, “Have we all gone mad? Have we lost our minds?” That’s why Terrian’s latest song has resonated so strongly with me. She’s asking the same questions. And she’s coming to the same conclusion… “Honestly, We Just Need Jesus.”

We watch the news and hear of wars, violence and just plain old insanity. Meanwhile, our churches are seeing people walk away from the faith. But in my own little circle, I’ve witnessed 5 marriages of friends in their 30s completely fall apart in the past year. Their spouses, for various selfish reasons, have decided to destroy their own families as well as the hearts of those they once vowed to love for the rest of their lives. After my own protective anger subsides, I’m left wondering what on earth is happening. 

WHAT'S REALLY GOING ON?

Why do we continue to see such tremendous pain in our families today? We could try to blame all sorts of things from ideologies made popular on social media to temptations straight from the enemy. But I think it makes more sense to redirect the pointing fingers from outside factors to inward failures. You see, we’re all broken. We all need a cure for the sinful selfishness within us. And that cure is Jesus. Jesus is the only source of hope. The only place to find peace. The only One who can restore what’s broken in humanity. Honestly, He’s what we all need.

As you listen to Terrian’s song “Honestly, We Just Need Jesus,” may it become a prayer that those around us find Jesus. May they submit their hearts to His leadership and keep their families intact. And to those left hurting from another’s decisions, may it remind us that Jesus is the one we need the most. And He’s never gonna let us go.

*If you find yourself in a similar marital situation, we strongly recommend seeking counseling from a trusted church leader or connecting with a local DivorceCare support group.*

SONG LYRICS

I got a front row seat to the madness
I pick up my phone every mornin’ out of habit
I’ve been fiendin’ for the drama, yeah, I said it
I’m addicted to the rush, need a medic

When I take a step back, I can see it
All the pain, all the fear we’ve been feelin’
Losin’ sight of the thing that we’re needin’
That we’re needin’

Honestly, I think we just need Jesus
Honestly, I think we just need Jesus
Have we all gone mad? Have we lost our minds?
What used to be wrong, we say that it’s right
Honestly, I think we just need Jesus

Take a good long look in the mirror
Search my heart and soul, make it clearer
Help me take your love, trade the bitter
Leave it in the dust, help me leave it in the dust, Lord

We’ve been preachin’, we’ve been drinkin’ in the vanity (in the vanity)
Now it’s got us questionin’ our sanity (sanity)
And we wonder how we get all this anxiety
It’s clear to me

Honestly, I think we just need Jesus (Jesus)
Honestly, I think we just need Jesus (Jesus)
Have we all gone mad? Have we lost our minds?
What used to be wrong, we say that it’s right
Honestly, I think we just need Jesus

We turn away (we turn away)
We’re running back to you (oh-oh)
Covered in grace (covered in grace)
God, You can make us new (make us new)
We turn away (we turn away)
We’re running back to you (oh-oh)
Covered in grace (covered in grace)
God, You can make us new, oh

Honestly, we need, we need You, Jesus (we need You, oh)
Have we all gone mad? Have we lost our minds?
What used to be wrong, we say that it’s right
Honestly, we need, we need You, Jesus

Oh, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus
We need You, Jesus, Jesus
Oh, Jesus
Jesus, Jesus (we’re running back)
(We’re running back to You) Jesus
We’re runnin’ back to You, oh (Jesus)
Yeah, Jesus, Jesus
Make us new

  1. Wonderful song. It is so true, “We just need Jesus.” I would never have had the nerve to do what she did in the video. I don’t like heights and it made me nervous just watching it. She has a beautiful voice and the song is one of my favorites.
