What is it that I Really Need?
I’m a little late for Five Minute Fridays but can’t resist writing on this week’s prompt: NEED. Five minutes to type out my thoughts. Here goes.
This morning I read two devotionals – Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest, and Jesus Calling. Both said the same things to me – I only need Jesus.
The time I spend with Jesus every morning is all I need to give me everything I need for the day. (Tweet this)
Strength, calmness, focus, joy, connection, inspiration and on and on.
Sarah Young wrote:
You must traverse this day like any other; one step at a time.
That reminded me of a favourite song, Step by Step. Here is a great version with Michael W Smith blending this song with Forever we will sing.
Each step forward we get closer to our Lord. I need that.
I read a scripture prayer this morning that I turned into a personal prayer. Do you do that? This reminds me of what I need.
This is what I wrote:
Lord, may You equip me with everything good for doing Your will and will You work in me, what is pleasing to You. (NIV)
And Jesus – put me together and provide me with everything I need to please You. Make me into what gives You most pleasure (The Message)
And how to do I do that?
Submit yourself, then to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Come near to God and He will come near to you.
So what do I need? One answer: time with God. What about you? (Tweet this)
Time’s UP. Lots more to say but for this post I am supposed to write for 5 minutes only.
