I have no deep thoughts today. I am a bit overwhelmed with all the things on my plate this month, but this is important to me. It was and continues to be important to me that I prioritize my time with the Lord and seeking understanding from Him in this situation. He has already exceeded my expectations. Far and beyond. I am trudging through in the middle of the month when I am tempted to quit and the tired in me won’t stop nagging me to give up.
I needed tonight. A night with no expectations on me. No worries about homework or assignments, no stress over life situations, just me being a friend and being loved in return. I needed that.
I needed hugs tonight from little people who haven’t seen me in forever but who love me just the same. I needed someone to care enough about me to ask me if I’m walking with the Lord. The answer was yes, but I needed someone to care enough to just ask. I needed to hear someone I look up to and respect to tell me that I’m making an impact in this city. I needed someone to listen. and I needed someone to treat me like a normal friend. Not the single friend. Not the speech therapist friend. Just me.
I didn’t know I needed any of these things. But God knew I needed them. He perceives and meets my needs long before I even realize I have them. How good is our God? He blows me away. This one is short and straight to the point.
I want to challenge you. Take note of the ways God is meeting your needs even when you don’t know you need them. Write them down. Thank Him. Live in the truth that God sees your need and is already working on your behalf.
