Sometimes I Need

Sometimes I need guidance
Sometimes I need peace
Sometimes I need refuge
From storms that never cease
Sometimes I need healing
From the pains my body feels
But most of all I need Jesus

Sometimes I need shelter
Sometimes I need warmth
Sometimes I need friendship
When I feel so all alone
Sometimes I need someone
To tell my sorrows too
But most of all I need Jesus

I need Him in the morning
I need Him through the day
I need Him in the evening
As the sun just drifts away
I need Him through the night
I need Him when I pray
I need Him every hour of every day

Sometimes I need comfort
Sometimes I need joy
Sometimes I need wisdom
When my dreams have been destroyed
Sometimes I need mending
When my heart is broke
But most of all I need Jesus

He is all these things to me
All of this and so much more
He fills my every longing
He’s what I’m living for
He’s always right beside me
In my darkest hours
He’s my ever-present help
In time of need

I need Him in the morning
I need Him through the day
I need Him in the evening
As the sun just drifts away
I need Him through the night
I need Him when I pray
I need Him every hour of every day

Where Is Christ

I see you

Sitting in darkness

Covered by life

Smelly

Dirty

Overtaken in dismay

Disheartened 

Defeated 

Lost

I wonder 

How you got there

What was you’re life

Successful

Happy

Enriched by children

Bright future 

Victorious 

Alive

Then it all fell apart

Crumbled 

Like a house of cards

All gone 

Job

Family

Respect 

Position 

One mistake

All gone

I don’t see

Your need

I blind myself 

I shut my mind

I walk on by

Where is Christ 

Where is mercy

Where is compassion 

Where is love

Christ

Is in you

Calling out

Wanting me to turn

To open the door 

To let you in

Christ 

Is in me

Begging to act

To touch you

To heal you

To bring peace

Bring joy

I don’t listen

I walk on by

I fail

Help me, Lord

To open my eyes

And my heart

To you.
