My heart has hurt. My mind has shut down. My soul needs Jesus. But sometimes, all I can do is nothing. Sometimes, all I can do is cry. Those moments – minutes, hours, days – are painful. They are reminders of the brokenness of our world. I know that’s it’s not just me. I can’t find the words or the strength. I don’t know what to pray. But I know that only God can heal me. He has not left me. His daughters are precious to Him. He set His affections on me and has not forgotten me. I am the one who needs to remember. I need Him. I NEED HIM!
The chorus of this song says, “How many times have you heard me cry out, God please take this? How many times have you given me strength to just keep breathing? Oh I need you! God, I need you now!” I need Him. I’m not the only one. Crying out to my Father in Heaven in those moments. You know the ones.
“Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me, for in you my soul takes refuge; in the shadow of your wings I will take refuge, till the storms of destruction pass by. I cry out to God Most High, to God who fulfills his purpose for me.” Psalm 57:1-2
