It hit me!

I downloaded some worship songs for the baby. One song from a baby worship CD is called You Alone. We are familiar with that song.....it starts out as:

You are the only one I need
I bow all me at your feet
I worship you alone

You have given me more than I could ever have wanted
and I will give you my heart and my soul

You alone are father
You alone are good

I can't help lately but be so down for those who are going through so much. There are people who have cancer, those who are struggling spiritually, those who are hurting emotionally and financially, those who are dealing with a loss, and some who are in need of direct guidance from the Lord and provision.

I sang that song the above while I was doing my grades. Then it hit me....exactly what the first line says... YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE I NEED and goes on to say YOU ALONE ARE GOOD. I realized as I was praying that when we acknowledge that God is all we need what a sense of peace came over me. I felt a peace come over me as I was praying for many tonight...that God would meet their need that they would seek his face and every need they would have would be met seeking and knowing Christ is in control.

I can't help but think of another worship song that I downloaded for the baby...it's

Blessed Be The Name of the Lord

Blessed Be your name when I am found in the dessert place
though I walk through the wilderness Blessed be your name.

When the darkness closes in Lord, still I will say Blessed be your name!

Though there is pain in the offering, blessed be your name!

My heart will choose to say, Blessed be the name of the Lord.

In the midst of life's trials, turmoils, and uncertainty Blessed be the name of the Lord. Though there is pain and day to day living not knowing how you will make it through another day blessed be his name!

My heart will choose to say Blessed be the name of the Lord.

I know that people's heart cries are not unheard. I know God is compassionate and gracious. I know that he will come through and provide where provision is needed and on whatever level it may be on.

I am trusting the Lord for many prayers to be answered and many to see that HE ALONE IS ENOUGH!

Last week we sang "Blessed Be Your Name" in chapel at NU and I couldn't help but cry as I was singing b/c the words are so powerful!!

I kept thinking about the situation I am going through and remembering that no matter what I go through I will still bless his name!! Thanks for your blog today. I feel encouraged again today!
