I woke up singing

"Lord, I Need You"
-Matt Maher
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

I'm enjoying the rest that God has allowed us. Thank you Papaw and Cookie for keeping the kids. I know they are having as much fun as Jonathan and I. I've found my rest in the Lord while I've had some quiet time. Sometimes you need to sit in the quiet to enjoy Him. Things have been hectic and I haven't been able to soak in all of his ever present glory. 

Hey JC, This really sucks but I'm so glad you are here! Let's hold hands and be best friends. I know when I hold on to you that you won't let anything happen. 

Which reminds me of the first time I was presented the gospel. "If you don't believe in Jesus you will go to hell." That is a terrible presentation. I want you to know that our end reward is heaven where we will get to live with our living God but He is ever so present in our daily lives. I have so much joy knowing that I am not in charge. He is in control. I get to experience our God every single day. All I had to do was surrender to him. I'm working up the courage to tell my story. 

God is bigger than this and Jesus can fix-it.
