I desperately need you right now.

desperate I was in Perth this week, and had an afternoon of flicking through channels on Mum & Dad’s Foxtel. Now, It’s been weeks since I’ve watched any commercial television at all, let alone had access to several hundred channels – so it was a novelty. But, interestingly (well, maybe it might be normal..) there was nothing on! Nothing that grabbed my attention anyway! Except.. I saw “veggie tales” on the episode list! And, I thought – “that’s just what I feel like watching!” But it wasn’t on for another 25 mins. So, I flicked to the channel anyway – it was “ACC” – the Australian Christian Channel.

Anyway, to make a long story short, the program on before ‘veggie tales’ was featuring a preacher who was a quadriplegic. Her story seemed quite amazing, they had a little piece prepared about her life before she came on. And, in the end I only stayed to watch the TV for a few more moments, but I heard the first point that she wanted to make in her ‘preach’.

WAKE UP EACH MORNING DESPERATELY NEEDING JESUS

She went on to fill in her point with some anecdotes and scripture – and the sentiment of the line sunk in with me, and stuck for the rest of the day – and evidently enough for me to write about it. I think lately, even though I’ve been growing in my listening and obedience (Praise God!), I haven’t felt a desperate need for Jesus – first thing. Or, I haven’t known that I’ve needed it. I’ve been reflecting on my days and realised that I do desperately need Jesus. There is no greater need in my life. I’ve got no strength outside of His. None at all. No wonder I’m tired, I’m trying really hard all on my own.

God please transform the first moments of my day – renew my passion for your love, and your strength. Keep reminding me about how much I need you.

Related to this, I was listening to 614’s “Souls and Justice” album on the way home in the car today, and kept having to go back and play this song over and over.
Lord, I need you. Thanks Danielle for writing words so familiar to my heart’s cry.

“The Wall” – Danielle Strickland

I see the wall before me,
I wonder will I ever be free,
Oh, I know the pain to try and climb
Yet, in You, peace is mine.

Lord I need you now,
Lord speak to me just now,
Lord, wrap in your might, teach me to fight somehow.
Lord, I need you,
I need you right now.

I see the giant face-to-face,
And, I can fight, but only by your grace.
Oh I, seem so small in this war,
And yet, there’s hope – that’s what your power is far, what it’s for.

Lord I need you now,
Lord speak to me just now,
Lord, wrap in your might, teach me to fight somehow.
Lord, I need you,
I need you right now.

I see the cross before my eyes,
I know the place where I must die.
Only, only by the strength you give,
Can I learn learn to die and live, again.

Lord I need you now,
Lord speak to me just now,
Lord, wrap in your might, teach me to fight somehow.
Lord I need you now,
Lord speak to me just now,
Lord, wrap in your might, teach me to fight somehow.

Lord, I need you,
I need you right now.

I need you, right now.
Wrap me in your might, teach me to fight, somehow.

We shall win.

"The decree has gone forth that the kingdoms of this world shall become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ and that He shall reign whose right it is from the River to the ends of the earth. We shall win. It is only a question of time. I believe that this Movement shall inaugurate the final conquest of our Lord Jesus Christ."
- General Catherine Booth
