I need....

You know those days when you just feel cranky inside? The days where you get mad at everything you don't have a right to be mad at? You feel easily hurt and offended and just basically weird and off? Yeah. They happen. We all have those every once in a while.

I'm having one today....actually have been having a string of them this past week. But these things happen. It's days like today that really makes me realize just how much I need (NEED, not want, desire or wish, but actually NEED) a saviour. I need Jesus more than I'll ever fully realize.

I never usually post lyrics, but these just stuck out to me today. In fact, I put the windows down on the highway, cranked the music and sang as loudly as I could. It was a passionate moment.

All this time
All this trying to beat human nature
It's still holding on to me
I'm made to run
But I was meant to be free
But still I'm broken
In need of someone to rescue me

Sometimes I fall
Sometimes I lose my way
But when I fall
That's not where I'll stay
Sometimes I fall
Sometimes I make mistakes
I will fall
But when I fall
I fall into grace

I'll let you down
If you're looking to me
To be perfection
This side of eternity
So hear me now
Here the words that I speak
I see redemption
But i'm not yet complete

Sometimes I fall
Sometimes I lose my way
But when I fall
That's not where I'll stay
Sometimes I fall
Sometimes I make mistakes
I will fall
But when I fall
I fall into grace

I need a saviour
I need a saviour

I need a saviour

I'm so glad that Jesus was and is willing to be my Saviour. He loves me so much, and I love Him. I'll just be glad for the day when He comes back and this constant internal struggle between flesh and spirit is over. The day when my flesh is put to death, and I am raised eternally to be with Him. It'll be a great day.

That's a bummer, but yeah, I've definitly had and am going through some days like that.

There times when I've honestly had to force myself to pray to God, cause there was very little desire to do so.

The other night actually, I had my first real focused communication with God in a couple of days.

I had done a couple of errands that I knew I needed to get done and where interfering with my prayers with God because I was praying for them but not trying to achieve any of them.

I was ignoring Nehemiah's example. Pray first then go and do.

I heard a good quote on the radio the other day. "Doubt is when your prayer and your actions are not in alignment with eachother." The point was that if you are praying for needs, wants, etc., but you are not working(ie. putting yourself in a position to achieve or recieve) and striving for those things than your not trusting that God will bless you with them.

We must be like Nehemiah, where he prayed for God's blessing and then went out and did the work.

We can't expect God just to give us something. He will provide the way but we have to be willing to walk it out.

Otherwise we are either doubting Him because are actions do not consist with our prayers to Him, or we are spoiled little christians who want the blessing simply handed to us.

Well, I think I went in a very different direction than your post but I will send this anyway, in hopes that you will find it useful.

You know I love you and you're a great friend, Kristen. Feel free to give me a call if you ever feel down. ;)
