Hymn Reflection–Lord, I Need You

Lord, I need You when the sea of life is calm.
O Lord, I need You when the wind is blowing strong.
Whether trials come or cease, keep me always on my knees.
Lord, I need You. Lord I need You.

Sometimes when life seems gentle and blessings flood my way,
I turn my gaze away from You and soon forget to pray.
But when the sky grows darker and courage turns to fear,
My anxious voice cries upward with words You long to hear.

Lord help me to remember I’m weak but You are strong.
I cannot sing apart from You, for Lord, You are my song.
Though I’m prone to wander and boast in all I do.
Lord, keep my eyes turned upward so I depend on You.

This song has been on my mind especially since the past few weeks I’m struggling more physically. I’m having harder nights and increasing pain along with other worse symptoms. I’m just feeling discouraged. I felt like throwing in the towel. I do feel I’m slowly coming out of the depression which has helped me cope a little bit better but as you can see that’s still a struggle as well. But it hasn’t changed my physical symptoms in fact I feel some things are getting worse. I find myself crying out to Jesus ” Lord, I need you.” Help me remember You are strong when I am weak. Help my eyes to lift upwards trusting and depending on you. Help this trial to keep me humbly on my knees asking for help from You. You are good and understanding. Help us cry to You. Amen.

Thank you all for your prayers and encouragement to me. I know I might not always say it but I do feel and appreciate so much the prayers.
