I was standing in the shower with a million things running through my mind, tugging at me, pulling my heart in every direction. I prayed, “God, I really don’t know what I’m doing here. Please give me something.”
And He did.
My phone had been playing music quietly in the background. But suddenly it was loud. Kari Jobe was singing “Jesus, You’re all I need.”
Her song, Healer, goes on to say:
“You hold my every moment
You calm my raging seas
You walk with me through fire
And heal all my disease
I trust in You, Lord I trust in you”
Sometimes I forget. I forget that He’s all I need. I forget that He once calmed the raging seas simply by saying, “Silence! Be still!” (Mark 4). And I forget that He can do the same for my racing mind.
As I stood in the shower–my thoughts battling each other, threatening to take over–He reminded me, “…you need only to be still” (Exodus 14:14).
With hope and love,
