Every Hour I Need You

ImageWhat if we took just a second every hour of the day – and thanked God for his presence? It’s a lofty goal, I know. But how would it change our perspective on the day?

While driving to work this morning – “Lord, I need you” by Matt Maher came on the radio. The words of this hymn made into a modern song captured my heart. One of my high moments each day is sitting in traffic and worshipping at the top of my lungs.

The song played, “Lord, I need You, oh, I need You. Every hour I need You. My one defense, my righteousness. Oh God, how I need You.”

It struck me. I need to thank God every hour for his provision, blessings and beautiful presence in my life. I write a lot about getting caught up in the day to day mundane routine of the work world. But, how about we let Jesus capture our thoughts – one moment every hour?

Just say to him – Thank you God. I need you. There is something beautiful about functioning in this world with heavenly perspective.

Take some time today to listen to this song and say to your Savior, “I need you every hour.” This is not weakness. It is ultimate strength – dependence on our Creator.
