Simply Jesus

Jesus, I need You.

I need You with all I am.

I need Your strength, because mine is all gone.

I need Your wisdom to see through all the worldly crud.

I need Your love to flow through me when mine seems to be used up.

I need Your compassion when I feel as though people deserve what they get.

Or mercy when people get what they don’t deserve.

I need your peace.

Your perfect peace.

The world at large is a mess.

And so is my little world.

Everything always demands my attention, yet You are all I seek.

May I measure every demand against Your will.

May I seek You above all else.

And may You fill me with everything I need as without that I am nothing.

Thank you for Your faithfulness.

Thank you for Your love.

And thank You for Your comfort.

As I settle into You, all I can do is be.

I so long to be what You want me to be.

I so long to do what You want me to do.

Guide me, Lord, into what plans You have for me.

Bring me into Your will.

For then, and only then, will I truly find Your peace.

You are my everything.

I so love You, my Lord, and Savior.
