Always in Need

always need Him <3


Psalm 40; 17  ''But as for me, I am poor and needy; may the Lord think of me. You are my help and my deliverer; you are my God, do not delay.''


              Oh how we forget how poor and needy we are without the grace of God.  When our lives seem to be going without a hitch, we often forget how much we rely on God.  We fall into the sin of arrogance, pride, self reliance and boasting.
             We look to God for help in crisis faster than we do as a daily source of help.  ''A daily devotional is better than a new year's resolution.''  What if God only thought of you as often as you acknowledged Him?
             We need God, like we need oxygen.  He should flow through us and radiate from us.  He is the one who gave life to the body by breathing air into the nostrils.  When our breath is gone. so is this life.  Without God, our life is an endless struggle to find meaning and purpose.
            As the song goes, 'I need Thee, oh,  I need Thee.  Every hour I need Thee.  Oh bless me now my Savior, I come to Thee.'

  1. Thanks for that great reminder, Angie. I have lately recognized, once again, my desperate need for a constant reliance on God and His Word. Sometimes I get down concerning certain cares and concerns, but I realize that it is only my hope in the Lord that sustains. And I do need sustenance!

  2. Angie how true are these reminders. Beautiful reminders. I'm sharing this with my lily tonight, who is learning to trust Jesus with some of her worries. Perfect timing. Praise the Lord!

  4. Good blog, Angie---This reminds me of a sign I saw recently " If you pray to God only when you are in trouble, You are in trouble." Love you, Dad
