It had been a very long, very demanding week with one more “work day” to go this past Friday. I turned on my computer to journal about the many, many ways I had experienced my Heavenly Father’s supply and guidance in the past few days. Immediately I saw on a friends Facebook page the YouTube Video below:
Please listen before you read any further.
Did you hear it? The cry of his heart; the desperateness? As I listened it was like he was singing what my heart needed to say but didn’t have words to express. As his intensity increased I became perplexed as I became of aware of 2 co-existing realities: my Heavenly Father’s ever presentness, love and provision and this visceral cry of “I need the O I need thee”.
As I walked I pondered how can these 2 things co-exist; is it because I don’t truly believe my Heavenly Father wants to or is able to meet my needs? Is there some place in my heart that doubts His goodness (Ps 100:5), His love for me (Romans 8:38-39) and His promise to never leave or forsake me (Heb 13:5-6)?
In the quietness and freshness of the morning, God spoke to my heart:
“The need in you; in each life is so big for Me
because I have that much of Myself with which I want to fill you.
I have created in you a need
that is proportionate to what I want to give.”
Now there is a reason to hope.
