Though I’ve been a Christian for many years, I still find myself at times seeking my joy, fulfillment, purpose, and satisfaction from human relationships.
Though they care for me, my husband, children, other family, or friends can’t meet my every need.
Only God has the ability to meet my emotional and spiritual needs. He knows me best and loves me most. It’s only by drawing nearer to Him that I can find total rest in my soul, realize my full potential, and have lasting peace.
I am Thine, O Lord, I have heard Thy voice,
And it told Thy love to me;
But I long to rise in the arms of faith
And be closer drawn to Thee.
Consecrate me now to Thy service, Lord,
By the power of grace divine;
Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope,
And my will be lost in Thine.
O the pure delight of a single hour
That before Thy throne I spend,
When I kneel in prayer, and with Thee, my God
I commune as friend with friend!
There are depths of love that I cannot know
Till I cross the narrow sea;
There are heights of joy that I may not reach
Till I rest in peace with Thee.
Draw me nearer, nearer blessed Lord,
To the cross where Thou hast died.
Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer blessed Lord,
To Thy precious, bleeding side.
All my insecurities are lost when He empowers me, when I know He will never leave me nor forsake me. Spending time in prayer and studying His Word leads me to better know the Savior Who died for me and with whom I will spend eternity.
