STILL ME, LORD

Some days I just don’t have the courage, faith, stick-to-it-tiveness, strength, or will to go on…today, I don’t….

….but, I have to.  Why?

JESUS

Psalm 27:13-14

I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; wait, I say, on the Lord!

JESUS

Hold my heart — help me not lose heart — let me see YOUR goodness — give me courage — strengthen my heart — I will wait on You.

JESUS

I need thee every hour, most gracious Lord; no tender voice like thine can peace afford. I need thee, O I need thee; every hour I need thee; O bless me now, my Savior, I come to thee.
I need thee every hour; stay thou nearby; temptations lose their power when thou art nigh. I need thee, O I need thee; every hour I need thee; O bless me now, my Savior, I come to thee.
I need thee every hour, in joy or pain; come quickly and abide, or life is vain.
I need thee, O I need thee; every hour I need thee; O bless me now, my Savior, I come to thee.
I need thee every hour; teach me thy will; and thy rich promises in me fulfill.
I need thee, O I need thee; every hour I need thee; O bless me now, my Savior, I come to thee.
I need thee every hour, most Holy One; O make me thine indeed, thou blessed Son. I need thee, O I need thee; every hour I need thee; O bless me now, my Savior, I come to thee.

I do need thee, Lord.  Hold me — I’m hanging on the precipice — don’t let me leap.

JESUS

It is dark — I’m scared —

Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.

JESUS

Still me.
