Lord I Need You

Have you ever felt like your world is just falling apart? You don't know where God is, what's going on, or how to take the next step forward. You feel like your whole life is spiraling downward before your very eyes, and there's nothing you can do to stop it. Maybe the cause of your feelings is an illness. Maybe it's from a broken relationship with a trusted friend, significant other, or parent. Maybe you lost a job, or the fear of the future is consuming you. Am I striking any chords with anyone yet? I know I've experienced this feeling of helplessness and worry before. Honestly, who hasn't? (Side note--if you say you've never had any monumental troubles in your life, I'm pretty sure you're lying to yourself). Life is hard! When I'm at a low point in my life and feel suffocated by my circumstances, I can't help but cry out to the Lord. (Actually, I know I need God ALWAYS.) Psalm 23 says that He "restores my soul". I love that picture of healing and restoration! We are imperfect humans. We are broken people. But God is perfect, holy, just, comfort, healing, etc. The song, "Lord I need you" really echoes my desire to come to the Lord at all times. The lyrics are below. I pray this song touches the depths of your heart as much as it touches mine. 

Lord, I come, I confess

Bowing here I find my rest
Without You I fall apart
You're the One that guides my heart



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



Where sin runs deep Your grace is more
Where grace is found is where You are
And where You are, Lord, I am free
Holiness is Christ in me



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



Teach my song to rise to You
When temptation comes my way
And when I cannot stand I'll fall on You
Jesus, You're my hope and stay



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



You're my one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You
