YOU alone

Occasionally, I have a very hard week, as I know many of you do as well. Trials and battles all around, sometimes making me too weak to fight. I think what happens is, I think I can fix things myself and forget I can’t do it alone until I am in too deep. I spin my wheels all week long until finally I get quiet and the Lord can get my attention and He reminds me He has been with me all the time, He has my back.. Even though I get tired and weary, He is NEVER weary and even if I fall down, He will pick me up.

I realize my priorities were way out of whack and I had not allowed Him to be first in my life……thus all the battles.

How many of you have let burdens, pleasures, husbands, wives, children, friends, relatives or work be the lord of your life’ whether it was today, this week, this month or even this year?

Many of you know that some songs really minister to me and speak volumes to my heart. At one time when I was having a cruddy week, an old song came on and I REALLY listened to the words. Stop for just a moment from the chaos around you and read these words, think about them and if your priorities are out of whack, let the Lord set your paths straight and your feet on higher ground, just as He did for me when I allowed Him.

As the deer thirsts for the water, so my soul longs for You.

You alone are my hearts desire and I long to worship You.

You alone are my strength, my shield. To You alone may my spirit

Yield. You alone are my hearts desire and I long to worship You.

I want You more than gold or silver, only YOU can satisfy. You

Alone are the real joy-giver and the apple of my eye.

You alone are my strength, my shield. To You alone may my spirit

Yield. You alone are my hearts desire and I long to worship You.

You’re my friend and You are my Brother, even though You are a King. I love You more than any other, so much more than ANYTHING. YOU alone are my strength, my shield. To YOU alone may my spirit yield. YOU alone are my hearts desire and I long to worship YOU.

This week read Psalm 27, let it minister to you and give you joy……unspeakable joy. Peace…….everlasting peace. Love…..a pure and Holy love. Let the Lord’s will be done in you. Trust Him in all you do.
