Oh, God, How I need you!

Updated on January 14, 2018

Writing is my passion. I have an undying thirst and quest in the field of writing. Some eat, drink or use drugs when stressed, I write.

In this life, sometimes I find myself crying out to Jesus and praying, seeking to understand what He is doing in my life. God had not promised me I would understand everything He is doing in my life or what He allows into it. But He assure to always be there for me. Although sometimes it feels like God is far away or not there for me, sometimes I find myself in a situation that is not good. Even though I have no doubt God knows what I am going through, and He will be available for me. Early on in my life, I knew I’d had to find some method for beating constant worry. For that reason, I talk to Jesus when my mind is in deep thoughts, and I feel in need of assistance during stressful times.

Although many forceful thoughts in my mind will lure me into thinking things are worse than they seem, and it will even move me towards fear and worry if I focus on all that's wrong in my life. Though I know I need to let go of everything when my worries mound and build. Therefore, I pray that Jesus will bestow me with strength and give me peace that will calm all my fears so that I can let go. I know, for me to hear you, and allow you to assist me in all my troubles, I need to enable you to transform me from a pitiful worrier into a brave prayer warrior. Oh, God, how I need you!

Thinking back to my younger years, the first time I can remember feeling in genuine need of Jesus — feeling entirely and incredibly emotional. I can remember saying, “Oh, God, How I need you if you do not come, take care of me, I am not going to make it”— was when my mother died, and God transported her home to be with him. I discovered pain I did not know could ever exist, and I felt it would be the death of me.

I can remember thinking how could this happen? Why would God take her from me so early in life? Why am I so bad at accepting that God knows what he is doing? Moreover, why is it so hard for me to feel Him close to me. And as I pray and long to feel his presence near me, why do I feel so empty and why am I so emotionally fragile that I allow my faith to be shaken rather than know God has a master plan for my life?

I look forward to better times, although every day may not be good, I trust you to move into my life and help me to make the best of each day. I know to come to you in prayer so you can dynamically give me a hand; I ask you to provide me with the courage to trust you wholeheartedly in a way that I cannot foresee or understand. I pray your mighty hand to hold my future and to guide my every step. Also, Jesus as you guide me, my every step, I ask you to lead me down the path of righteousness. Thus, I know I will be protected by your armor to help me through the trying times on this journey. Oh, God, how I need you!

In this world, I know I will encounter hurts, pressures, and disappointments, but if I allow Jesus; He will keep me in perfect peace. Life’s trials and tribulation can weigh me down, but the peace of God can lift me up and free me from the turmoil of this world. God never promises me that I will be free from problems, worries, trials, sorrows, and tribulations in my daily life but he did promise to be there in the midst of all these chaotic conditions. I have to trust that there is something beautiful waiting for me if I just hold out and finish running this race. Upon completion of this race, I can look forward to Jesus picking me up and kissing away the heartache. Lord, I need you, every hour of every day!

Man desires peace away from the trouble of this world, but there will always be pain and hurt on this earth. Although there will still be trouble on this earth, if I desire peace, I must cast all my care in Jesus’s hand. 1 Peter 5:7 (KJV) Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. John 14: 27 (KJV) "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." (John 14:27). “And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:7)

It is no secret that many people are searching to find peace and happiness in their challenging and uncertain times. Some look for peace and joy in cars, homes, relationships, alcohol, drugs, jobs, pets and money when they are sad or when they think; it is time for them to have some peaceful time. Even the wealthiest person who has everything, he or she could feel an emptiness inside, when peace is missing in their life. They can buy any material thing they desire, they even spend money to keep people near but, in the end, they learn that their best efforts fail when peace is missing in their life.

Some people even have problems recalling how their past good times felt. Because the bad times outweigh the good and all of the issues, weigh down their heart. However, I keep in mind; problems are a form of hurts, pressures, and disappointments that God has created to give me the experience of the good and the bad to gain the necessary knowledge. I have to believe no matter what's going wrong in my life; I can have peace of mind and confidence when I learn how to find peace through Jesus. The most terrible thing is knowing something is missing, but not knowing how to find the inner peace one seeks. The answer lies in understanding how to find inner peace with Jesus.

When I did not know Jesus Christ as my personal savior, I would go on worrying when things are happening in my life, thinking and stressing about what would happen wrong next. I would confront my problems like sadness, anxiety, worries, and pains and find myself questioning how I should find a solution to my problems. However, when I accept Jesus as my Lord and savior, I confront my problems through prayer and found peace when I allow Him to transform my mind to say goodbye to all worries that can come my way and play havoc with my inner peace.

Although, I generally use a negative mind and get myself further troubled. Instead, now I look at the problems with a positive mind through prayer and Jesus assistant and hence I can find a permanent cure for my restlessness. When I allow Jesus, He will keep me in perfect peace, all worries will come to an end, and I will be free from all turmoil within my life.

When I know, something is missing but not sure what; life can be so unpredictable; one day I am happy and a day or two later, I am not satisfied with life. Image feeling energetic one day, so full of life and a day or two later feeling as if I am ready to die. That is not a way for no one to live. The most terrible thing is knowing something is missing but not knowing how to find the inner peace one seeks. The answer lies in understanding how to find inner peace with Jesus.

When I was a young woman, I found myself wrestling with God's will for my life. I found myself wondering, ‘where am I going,’ am I headed in the right direction, am I making the right decision or what am I supposed to be doing? It took me a while to reach an answer to the above questions because I continually venture rather than know what I should be doing; when you assume itinerant on a journey it blindly traveling a path that leads to losing yourself.

One day as I was feeling like I was going in circles and not making any progress in my life, I realize I were drifting along observing helplessly from the dark lens as my body just does what I didn’t train it to do. I am falling out of touch with myself, and that is what happens when a person has numerous distractions and too many choices and don’t know how to make the right decisions.

However, when I begin seeking God’s will for my life, I learn prayer is a must to understand what I desire in my life. Admittedly, I will be rewarded when I pray for something. However, nothing will come to my closed mouth. So, I know to knock on His door to seek His mercy and forgiveness. He will open His doors for me and allow me to pray for whatever I want, or I what I desire.

Before I learn how to accept God's will for my life, my life consists of days where I've felt like one foot was secured to the floor, and the other was scampered in every direction. Sudden days include me struggling with insecurity, expending a lot of energy and exhaustion, but going nowhere until I sought God's Word for help. One Bible scripture shared some of the most promising words from the old testament.

My mind was rushing out of control, and I need to address my desire to organize my thought in the right direction. I turn to the book of Psalm 25:4-5, it shared some of King David words in a pleasing psalm, it shows me what to do when in need of clear focus as it stated: "Show me the right path, O LORD; point out the road for me to follow. Lead me by your truth and teach me, for you are the God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in you."

I can remember that very day; I ask Jesus to put an unlimited amount of peace and comfort around me and my aching heart. I wanted my life to start consisting of joy without sorrow, sun without rain, and peace without pain. At the same time, inner peace is the name of battling out my worries and problems with positive thinking and well defined positive approaches.

The more positive in the actions I encounter, the more inner peace will I have. Grant of inner peace lies with Jesus's pleasure who wants me to live a life of a brave person and have full trust and belief in Him and His authority. Only then I can acquire total inner peace through Him.

If I want to achieve a goal with emotional satisfaction, then I need to worship Him and do what He directs me to do and shun all evils that can cause me a big blow in the shape of sins. Also, Jesus can help me with all challenges I face so I can let go of everything that is a distraction. Lord, I need you, every hour of every day!

Do you agree we need Jesus every hour of every day?
