I need GOD . . .

Published on 21 April 2024 at 10:57

Sitting here this morning, a gazillion thoughts scramble for being first priority in my mind and heart.

GOD, for the past, for the present, for the future – I need YOU.

And I need, I crave, YOUR Peace.

YOUR Peace, which passes all understanding.


YOU are my Prince of Peace.

My need is great, and seems to grow greater, deeper, with every beat of my heart, every flutter of my eyes.

I have no sufficiency of my own.

BUT GOD, YOUR Grace is sufficient.


Here I am – just as I am.

Nothing more than a blob of clay – YOU are the Potter.

Whatever brings YOU the Glory – do this.

I am YOURS . . .


Thank YOU for YOUR Presence in my life, and for YOUR Peace that is a part of YOUR Presence.

Even when I don’t feel, when I don’t see, when I don’t hear.

When I don’t know.

When my humanity overwhelms and seems to over-power everything else.

GOD, YOU are there – in my past, as my REAR GUARD.

GOD, YOU are here – in my present, always with me, beside me.

GOD, YOU are there – in my future, already there.


Please, accept the many whispers of YOUR NAME – from my heart and mind, from my soul, whether the whispers are heard by any others, or not.

Please, hear . . . and please, stay . . .


: Isaiah 9:6 – For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His Shoulder, and His Name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

  • Every breath I take brings a new and greater awareness of my need for YOU . . .

: II Corinthians 4:7 – But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.

  • Not because of who I am – but because of what YOU have done.
  • Not because of what I have done – but because of Who YOU are.
  • Thank YOU GOD for the Promise that is held in this verse.

: John 14:26-27 – But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My Name, He will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; My Peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.

  • As this widow that I am, these 2 verses sure do bring me strength and comfort.
  • GOD, I believe – I truly have no other choice.



This is a picture I took several years ago.

I have always loved these tunnel of trees.

This one seemed to speak directly to me as a widow.

I could barely see through the trees to the sides of the road.

There was a lot of shade on the road, and yet the sunshine was there, too.

I could not see the end of the road, but I could see that the road goes on.

My life now . . . GOD is with me.

HE knows.
