Friday Words of Faith – Rescue Me

I’m not channeling Aretha Franklin but instead calling out for a more important rescue. Today I have really been worn down by things in life that in all honesty shouldn’t cause me to bat an eye. Things that in the scope of eternity do not even come close to being on the radar yet I found myself feel so overwhelmed and defeated. I even cried. On the way home after picking Abby up from daycare, I heard the song “Rescue” by Newsong and I about cried…again. It was SO what I needed to hear and helped me put so many things in persective and helped me put my focus back where it needs to be. I had such an amazing time of worship right there in my car. Abby even fell asleep by the time we actually got out of the car (it was seriously like a 3 minute drive but we were in the car alot longer than that). If you have never heard it, here are the lyrics:

Rescue by Newsong
You are the source of life
I can’t be left behind
No one else will do
I will take hold of You
I need You Jesus, I need You Jesus
My heart is Yours for life
I need Your hand in mine
No one else will do
Lord I put my trust in You
I need You Jesus to come to my rescue
Where else can I go?
There’s no other Name by which I am saved
Capture me with grace
I will follow You
My heart is Yours for life
I need Your hand in mine
No one else will do
Lord I put my trust in You
This world has nothing for me (I will follow You)
Dear most gracious Father,
First and foremost I thank you that I can even call you Father and that I know that You hear me. I’m not praying to a dead and distant god but a God who is personal and longs to interact with me. God I need You to come to my rescue. It has been far too long since I have placed my hand in yours. Lately I have been so caught up in my own thing and yet I have been wondering why I have felt so overwhelmed and anxious. I haven’t been able to see past myself. God I pray for forgiveness of my selfishness. I pray for the strength to put ALL of my trust in You and to keep it there (not take it back). God this world truly has nothing for me. You are everything. You are the source and sustainer of life. You are the giver of all good and perfect things. I pray that You help me to dwell on these things right now and for the hours and days to come. God I pray for anyone reading this that may be having the same struggles. May they call out to You for rescue and they receive grace and strength for the day. I love you for all that You have been, all that You are, and all that You will be.
Amen.
