Lord, I Need You Now

Tonight I don't know where I'm going with this but I just feel like I need to write. Somehow, when things aren't all that good, writing seems to bring me closer to God. Writing about the Lord...listening to Christian music...is therapy for me. Music reaches down into my soul and helps me to get in touch with the Lord...just to feel Him closer to me. That's what I'm wanting for myself right now and that's what I'm wanting for you!

A great song I was listening to tonight was...

If There Ever Was A Time

If there ever was a time, I needed you before, Lord I need You now.
If there ever was a trial, I couldn't handle on my own, that's how this feels somehow.

That's just a couple of lines but very important ones. No matter what...there is never a moment that we don't need the Lord. Right now is the time. Trials...yeah...we all have them. Sometimes you think you can handle them on your own...but you can't. I have found this for myself so many times in the last 5 years...I needed His help over and over, and I need it now.

I think there are many of us that feel like this right now.  Whether it's us going through trials, or family or friends that are...we Need the LORD and His help. There are so many things that we depend on the Lord for during bad times in our lives. Comfort...peace...joy...healing...strength...He provides all of these things for us. We just need to press in close to Him.

Press in.

I have said this many times in the last couple of months. Pressing in seems to be an urgency for me right now. Stress...anxiety...feeling down or sick...all these things get better when you press in to Him! Do what ever it takes for yourself to get closer to the Lord.

Nahum 1:7

The Lord is good,
    a strong refuge when trouble comes.
    He is close to those who trust in him.

Psalm 46:1

God is our refuge and strength,
    always ready to help in times of trouble.

Psalm 28:7

The Lord is my strength and shield.
    I trust him with all my heart.
He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy.
    I burst out in songs of thanksgiving. 

Here's a link to the song.  Sorry for the ads on it but I wanted you to hear it.

Hi Chelle,
Yes, I feel the urgency too!
When I think back through the years of my walk with the Lord, I can see how my faith (and peace) was intensified when I finally let go and let God handle the things that I tried to, but couldn't...and I was given a lot that I could not handle on my own.
I only wish I had learned faster to trust the Lord...I am still learning.
Going to Jesus should be our first reaction, not our last resort...I still forget this, although I am getting better.
~Pressing in today~
Hope you have a wonderful Christmas full of peace and joy...sending you ((hugs)) my friend.~God bless~ Lisa

With so many distressing things happening all around us, the best thing we can do is press into Him. My daughter and I decided last night that we are going to read Psalm 119 for 30 days and fall in love with the Word of God all over again. Thanks for sharing this, Chelle.

Pressing in,

Each day, I'm always learning how much I need the Lord's guidance in all aspects of my life. Good reminder!

Chelle, I know this feeling all too well. Pressing in to our Hevenly Daddy is our comfort.
