This Week For Sunday

Lord, I need You, oh, I need You
Every hour I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

If I’m honest, I don’t feel like I need Christ hour to hour.  I know I need Him for salvation, but from day to day, moment to moment it doesn’t always feel like I need Him.  I can go to meetings and check items off my to-do-list with little thought about my need for Christ.

But then I get stressed and overwhelmed.  Tasks become daunting.  My “organized piles” become chaotic mounds and my office turns into a storage closet (and not one from a fancy home magazine).  My eyes act like magnets to my phone screen.  My marriage is strained under the pressure I put on myself.  I’m rude to my teammates.  I expect much and give little grace.  My body aches, my mind wanders, and my soul is heavy.

And my Savior whispers, “Be still.  Find rest in me.” (Psalm 46:10, Matthew 11:30)

Lord, I come, I confess
Bowing here I find my rest
Without You I fall apart
You’re the One that guides my heart

I do need my Savior hour to hour, inhale to exhale.  Because He is more than just my Savior who sacrificed Himself for my sin.  He is my Lord who laid down His life to give me life abundantly.  He is my Rock who is strong in my weakness.  He is Creator who fills my mind with ideas at just the right moment, if I would only be still and wait; be still and be inspired by His character; be still and be with Him.

Today, in this moment, I challenge you to do two things:

  1. Stop and be still. Close your eyes, breath deep, and revel in the presence of your God.
  2. Put one of the two scriptures linked above or the first verse from the song “Lord, I Need You” somewhere where you’ll see it frequently to remind yourself of your constant need for Christ.

Throughout the week, I encourage you to listen to these songs as we prepare to gather together as the body of Christ on Sunday:
