I Need You

When I heard this song, it really struck me how much it supports the post from this week. I love the realness and the helplessness that the song describes. I feel that same despair when I attempt to live life without God as my support and strength, when things get beyond me... which is basically everything.

But when I wake up and remember that God is with me and that he will lift me up, now that is like a balm on my wounded soul.


I Need You by The Swift

My heart is restless in me
My wings are all worn out
I'm walking in the wilderness
And I cannot get out
I need You, Oh, I need You
Blessed Savior come
I need You, Oh, I need You
Fill the every longing in my soul

Chorus
Oh, how I need You, Lord
I need Your perfect Word
With tearful eyes to see
The sin that I afford
I need to weep and prayer
For all the thousand ways
That I have failed
You just today

My bed is soaked with sadness
My sadness has no end
A downward spiral of despair
That I keep falling in
I need You, Oh, I need You
To You my soul shall fly
I need You, Oh, I need You
Yaweh, how I love You more than life

Chorus

Your silence is like death to me
So won't You hear my desperate plea

Today my soul is soaring
Way over mountains high
Though I can see the valleys
They're all just passing by
It's not that I am stronger
Look at my feeble wings
But I've been lifted higher
Yaweh's lifted me in His own strength

Oh, how I love You, Lord
I love Your perfect Word
With tearful eyes to see
The God who always will endure
Now I will celebrate
For all the thousand ways
That You have shown me grace
And made my heart in grace to stay
You've made my heart in grace to stay
Lord, MAKE my heart in grace to stay

I need You, Oh, I need You

(emphais are mine)

I pray that this will be the year that I fully comprehend, understand, dwell upon, envelope myself in, live as if I know without a doubt His unwavering grace and wholly submit to his will, whatever it includes. That's my resolution, if you wish to call it one.

Really, I'd rather call it a change in the way I've been living/thinking, knowing full well that I will undoubtedly fail at times and surprisingly find myself holding to it at others. Hopefully, I can cling to it in such a determined way, that the successes may one day outnumber the failures.

That's not to much to expect I think.
