Need You More

In the past, I’ve done a weekly post about how a particular song spoke to me. Music has a way of ministering to me like nothing else. It has a way of bringing me into a state of worship that I don’t find in any other way. I hope you will be touched by this edition. If you find yourself in a place where you need Him more- please reach out for prayer in the Sisterhood.

Need You More, By For King and Country

[Verse 1]
In the blink of an eye
Life flashed
Right in front of my eyes
Mmm
Never knew that the fear
Could cripple my chest
In the blink of an eye
The light left

Life is funny, sometimes. We get caught up in the tasks of the day, the lists we need to check, and we forget that tomorrow is never promised. We forget that in just one phone call things can change. We can find ourselves back in a place of fear. A place where we don’t know what’s next.

[Pre-Chorus]
So lonely it is
So lonely tonight is
And I wish I knew why
Yeah, I wish I knew why

[Chorus]
I need You more, yeah
I need you more
More than ever before, yeah
I need you more

It’s in this place of fear that we have two choices on where to look. Do we look to what the world is telling us? Do we look to what the test results say? Do we look to what is being told to us? Where do we find our comfort in unsteady waters? For me, I know that these are the times that I need the Lord so much more. When the answers are not coming quickly, or not the answers I want, that is when I need the Lord. There is no comfort this earth can give me.

[Verse 2]
Prepare for the worst
Hope for the best
Won’t you steady my heart
For whatever comes next?

[Pre-Chorus]
So holy it is
So holy tonight is
Oh, now I know I
Now I know I

It’s in the quiet that is behind the noise. That’s the holy place. When the world is noisier than it’s ever been- maybe I’m noisy. Maybe there’s chaos all around me. Maybe from the outside it looks like there is no peace. It’s then that God works the deepest. That’s when he calls me. He calls me deeper. Calls me to fix my eyes on Him. And the noise around me swirls away. Suddenly, I’m encircled by the noise that I can’t hear, and it’s just quiet. I’m somehow protected. That’s when the Lord and I are just a little closer, and life becomes just a little clearer.

[Chorus]
I need You more, yeah
I need you more
More than ever before, yeah
I need you more, yeah
I need You more (Yeah)
I need you more (Yeah)
More than ever before, yeah (Yeah)
I need you more (Yeah)

[Bridge]
Just a little closer, a little clearer
Our souls are nearer tonight
Just a little sweeter, a little deeper
Our souls are nearer tonight
Just a little closer, a little clearer
Our souls are nearer tonight
And just a little sweeter, a little deeper
Our souls are nearer tonight

I don’t know what the next few days hold. I know what I thought yesterday is not what I think today. This feeling comes to us periodically, doesn’t it. It could be caused by many different circumstances. Maybe the Lord came to you in the night and told you the direction you thought you were taking is not the way to go. Maybe, you’ve lost a job, or a friend, or passion. I don’t know what your particular circumstance is, but I know that we all go through these times.

At the end of the day, I choose to trust who God is. I choose to trust in the spiritual realm, while living in the physical realm. I choose to keep my eyes on Jesus.
