LIFE AND LOVE : EVERY HOUR

I need Thee
O I need Thee
Every hour I need Thee
O Bless me now my Savior
I come to Thee

I need You
O I need You
Every hour I need You
O Bless me now my Savior
I come to You

I need Thee
O I need Thee
Every hour I need Thee
O Bless [accept] me now my Savior [and if we call Him Savior, we indeed know He will accept us and He is indeed with us all the time; He never leaves or forsakes us]
I come to You [and we can confidently come to Him because He is our Savior]

This simple hymn I sing over Leland as I sway him to sleep. Wrapped, warm, and still, I sing-pray to the Lord. I whisper my petitions. He hears my prayer. I am thankful for a day, a good day. that the Lord has preserved our lives. And I sing. In this new season of life, this is my heart’s primary prayer. The one always on my lips. Singing in my heart. Quick to respond to my quick temper. Quick to absolve my anxiety.

Sure, we all know we need Him. Some of us gladly listen and obey Him. I daily have a quiet time with Him. But in this fresh season, I KNOW I NEED Him. I mean, really NEED. REALLY.

for steadfastness. patience. slow-down and savor spirit. for discernment. for the right words, the right way. for an extra dose of energy, perseverance.

For literally everything.

One minute, I am miss super mom and sweet wife. The next, snappy and need to just hush up for a minute. Goodness gracious, you know what I mean?

Redeem my soul.
Renew my spirit.
Reform my mind.
Refresh my body.

I need You.

And praise the Lord from whom all blessings flow. He hears my cry, He answers my request, He blesses me. now. He is my gentle Savior. He comes. He dwells. He is my all in all.

I go to sleep, wrapped, warm, and still, singing silently to Jesus

I need You
O I need You…
