I'd Need a Savior

I am just popping in to say Hi! Life just seems to be extra busy and I feel so far behind on everything! I am trying to find the right balance of my time between God, my family, blogging and other things.

I can get easily discouraged when I get so far behind and feel like I could just give up! That's when I find myself begging God for help to get me out of the pit I am in. Why, oh why, can I not remember to invite Him into every single one of my days and my daily activities, no matter how mundane they are. Life would go so much smoother, wouldn't it? 

If I were to say I had a New Year's Resolution, it would be to Seek God more and more. To invite Him to every part of my life every day!

Yes, there are other areas of my life I need to work on, like lose weight. I believe that if I am inviting God into every part of my life, then things like losing weight will fall into place. Yes, I need to do my part, but if I am seeking God to help me with my eating, then I believe it can happen.

It sounds so easy as I type this, but in reality I know that my old flesh will get in the way. My love for food will want to takeover.  So when I get off track, I have a Loving Savior that will help pick me up and put me back on the right path.

I have been a bit discouraged about a few things, and the past couple of days this song has been on my heart. One thing I have learned in my Christian Walk, is that when I am in distress and feel I cannot do anything else is to call on the name of Jesus! The name of Jesus has ministered to me so many times! Thank You Jesus for being my Friend and You are what I can hold on to!

Your name is Jesus

You’re the wonderful, counselor, my friend

You’re what I hold on to

I know that You brought me through

How many names

Can I use to explain

The love of my Jesus

The life that He gave

And so many times

Will I praise You today

I lift up my life

Cause You’re always the same

And my offering

To you I bring

Your name is Jesus

Your name is Jesus

You’re the wonderful, counselor, my friend

You’re what I hold on to

I know that You brought me through

All the days of loss and to the cross, You knew

That I’d need a Savior

How many songs

Can I sing to proclaim

Your wondrous love

Oh and beauty so great

Oh and, What would I say

If You brought down the rain

And everyday I walked through the pain

My heart would still say…

......All the days of loss, and to the cross You knew,

That I'd Need a Savior Well, I'd need a Savior....woah

You're what I hold onto, I know that You brought me through

All the days of loss and to the cross You knew,

That I'd need a Savior

I'd need a Savior,

I need You Savior.

Hey Karen,
This may explain why I havebn't gotten an e-mail back from you, but no need to worry, I am too busy trying to catch up on my own e-mails that I wouldn't have been able to respond to any response you would have given me! What I'm trying to say is I think we've all been trhere... HOpe to actually hear from you again soon though. I think of all my blogging friends and check in on them often even if I don't get around to direct communication.

I get behind often! I'm still trying to catch up from several weeks worth of posts!

Oh, how often I have felt the same way, wishing I had prayed before something overwhelmed me, wishing I had the wisdom to prayer before each and every step I take each day. It is very reassuring knowing that I am not the only Christian who feels this way. Keeping you in my prayers on your walk through life.
