I’ve been thinking about the rapport we have with Jesus…more specifically the relationship I have with my Redeemer. And I believe fully there is only one kind worth having: Hot. Don’t you think? Revelation 3 comes to mind…
I have to ask myself: Am I hot for Jesus?
Do I love Jesus or am I completely in love with Him?
Am I Head-over-heels, can’t get enough of Him, smitten?
Friend, a part of me thinks we either realize how much we need Him on a daily basis or we rely on Him only when we feel we need Him.
I have to ask myself: Which Needy Am I?
Do I have moments where I need Jesus to intervene, or do I realize I am nothing without Him, downright needy for Him?
Do I merely call upon His Name at my convenience, when I can’t seem to find my own way, or do I ache for Him throughout my everyday, clinging tightly to His promises…chatting with Him like the friend He wants to be. John 15 comes to mind.
It goes against human nature — to be needy. But in this upside down Kingdom of Grace, that’s a good thing.
Friends, Jesus thought we were worth dying for…I think that qualifies for being smitten.
He is head-over-heels in love with us. He just is. He. Is.
And He wants nothing more than to lighten our load, love on us relentlessly, give Himself to us. He has everything we could ever want. He Is everything we’d ever need.
I don’t know about you, but I realize and want to remind myself daily:
My, do I ever need Him. I’m head-over-heels, completely needy for Jesus.
Everyday. All day.
This week, I want to focus on this in my daily walk. You all know how music speaks to my heart in ways words cannot. So I’m committing to starting each morning with this song. For it sets the tone I want to walk into each day with. And I wanted to share it with you.
Friends, I just gotta have Jesus.
Lord, I Need You

Lord, I come, I confess
Bowing here I find my rest
Without You I fall apart
You’re the One that guides my heart
Lord, I need You, oh, I need You
Every hour I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You
Where sin runs deep Your grace is more
Where grace is found is where You are
And where You are, Lord, I am free
Holiness is Christ in me
Teach my song to rise to You
When temptation comes my way
And when I cannot stand I’ll fall on You
Jesus, you’re my hope and stay

How about you, friend? Are you needy for Jesus? How do you live that out in your everyday? I’d love to hear.
Thanks for sharing your time with me.
