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.

What an excellent arrangement. Loved it!
You know, the older I get in the Lord, the more I realize that I need Him…yep…every hour! I’m thankful that He invites us to be as little children in that way, fully dependent upon Him. 🙂
☺ This is the first real “aha” for me on why no matter how much I receive of Him, I still need more and that is a good thing rather than a failure on my part. Sweet!!!
My sister said the other day we are made to be an addict. We choose alcohol,drugs,food etc. but what we are
Made to be is an addict of Jesus,
Hmmm … I’ll have to think about this a little. I’ve always had such a negative connotation about addictions and the pain that drives it, that it is hard for me to associate that with Jesus. I need to ponder.
