If my life had a soundtrack, THIS would be it…

If my life had a soundtrack, THIS would be it... || DevotionalMotherhood.comYou know those times in your life when you’ve really identified with a particular song or artist? I remember many songs that have resonated deep within my heart during certain seasons of my life. I had boxes and boxes of cassette tapes, mostly mixed ones I had created myself. In later years, I collected all of my favorite CDs and would listen to particular songs depending on the mood I was in or the circumstance I faced. But one thing I remember…there was never a song I would have claimed as “MY LIFE SONG”.

But now that I’m one year shy of 40 and my faith walk has taken me on the wildest ride of my life, I know one thing more than anything else…

I NEED JESUS. Everyday. Every hour. In every moment of every circumstance, I need my Heavenly Father.

So, I heard a song last week that took my breath away and truly spoke to the very essence of who I am. It’s one I’d never heard before, but the words…they met me where I am now and where I’ve always been…in that constant place of needing Jesus. If my life had a soundtrack, THIS would be it…just this one song, over and over again. And not for a season or because it suits me for this hour, but because it speaks to the condition of my heart and soul every single day.

Lord, I Need You by Matt Maher

 

“Lord, I Need You”

Lord, I come, I confess
Bowing here I find my rest
Without You I fall apart
You’re the One that guides my heart Lord, I need You, oh, I need You
Every hour I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need YouWhere sin runs deep Your grace is more
Where grace is found is where You are
And where You are, Lord, I am free
Holiness is Christ in me

Lord, I need You, oh, I need You
Every hour I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

Teach my song to rise to You
When temptation comes my way
And when I cannot stand I’ll fall on You
Jesus, You’re my hope and stay

Lord, I need You, oh, I need You
Every hour I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

You’re my one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

  1. How I am with you on this!!! I felt the exact pull and instant vulnerability when I found this song a few months ago. We are restlessly dependent on Christ – every hour. Going to listen to this song….maybe just a few more times..okay, all day.

    Thank you!

  1. […] I’ve found over the years that if I’m ever going to make the most of my quiet time, I need to have a game plan. I’m not talking about putting God in a box here, only that I want to be wise with the precious quiet time I do have with Him. And of all the methods and ways I’ve tried to study Scripture, the one thing that remains for me is this. I love God’s Word…literally LOVE it. But I didn’t know how much I loved it, until I began studying it verse by verse. And this is when God’s Word, His Love letter to the world, came alive in my heart and ignited a passion and drive in me to live a more devotional life…with the help of Jesus, of course. […]
