Greater than I

Feeling overwhelmed and heavy-hearted, I cried out to You for help in my desperation, Oh Lord and You spoke Psalm 61:2 to me: 'From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.'

I find when I am the most desperate, is when the Lord feels the closest. He's not drawn to me by my begging, complaining, yelling, having a pity party, etc. He's drawn to me because I have a heart after God, and I know that I know that I know ... that if He isn't with me, I can't do ANYTHING. My desperation for Him, my knowing that He's my everything out of all the things/people in the world, that it's Him who is mighty to save, is what keeps me in that place called 'there' and keeps me humble before Him.

Father God, You ARE greater than I Oh Lord, be not far from me. Help me. Heal me. Comfort me. Provide for me. Make sense of all this chaos. I pray for godly wisdom. To be led by Your blessed Holy Spirit. Quieten the raging waves within. I pray this for all those in need as well. I bless You Lord, in the name of Jesus.
