“Lord, I need You.
Every hour I need You”
I’ve been praying that prayer more often these days. Sadly, not because I am growing spiritually but because I am being brutally honest with God for the sake of my children.
Right now life often feels crazy and overwhelming. I actually told Bryan once, “I don’t even feel like I’m treading water. I’m drowning and just trying to get back up to the surface!”
And yes, I know this won’t last forever. This is just the season we’re in. It’s still a good season, and we have been incredibly blessed! But, it is a crazy season at the same time.
And guess what, that’s ok.
One thing I love about Sunday mornings, especially right now, is that they remind me how big God really is compared to the craziness of my little life. He is not only Creator of the Universe, but He is also its Sustainer. And yet somehow, in the midst of everything else going on in the world, God has time to respond when I call out. He who holds nations in His palm, who raises kings and kingdoms, can also hear a mother who’s asking for strength simply because she’s tired again.
Did you know this God who needs nothing and no one comes close when you call,
bends His ear when you pray,
and listens to every single word you have to say.
He is quite a faithful God.
One day we will stand before God in awe and humility and we will begin to realize how amazing it is that we’re actually there before Him and haven’t been obliterated. His simple presence would shake the foundations of the earth, and yet He holds everything together simply so He can come down and be with us.
Believer, whatever season you are in may you truly stop and behold your God. When you cry out to Him may you find Him. Every hour that need Him may you seek Him. And when you do, may you realize how amazing He is, and how much He loves you.
Erika; thank you for sharing this! Why is it that we so often forget who God is and who we are to him!?! Love this song!
