~You Are My Everything~

As we sang this chorus tonight in church, the words of this song dug deep into my spirit. He is everything to me!

Until the world stops turning
Until the stars fade from the sky
Until the sun stops striving
I need you in My life and here's the reason why
Chorus:
You are the love of my life
You are the hope that I cling to
You mean, more than this world to me
I wouldn’t trade you for silver or gold
I wouldn’t trade you for riches untold.
You are, you are my everything

I began to ask myself the following questions and my spirit was troubled:
  • If you are my everything, you are all I need, you are the love of my life ~ then why when I'm in need, do I not tap into your supply, Lord?
  • Why don't I always act like you're my everything and totally depend on you with complete trust to take care of me, my family and the situation?
  • Why do I put you on the back burner, on a shelf or in a box sometimes when things are going great in my life?
  • But, yet when a crisis arises or a situation that is bigger than I am comes up~ I come running to you.
  • Why can't I get beyond the my mental limitations of what I can imagine that you are able to do and get into the spiritual realm where nothing is impossible for God?
I know that He is my everything, He supplies all my needs according to His riches, He will not put on me more than I can handle~so what is my problem?

I honestly can't answer that tonight. I know that I'm not the only one who suffers from this mental handicap but I don't want to remain handicapped~I want to be mentally, emotionally and spiritually healed in these areas, not get discouraged, not lose my focus, not retreat from the front lines of the battle against the enemy~but, to step up my prayers for those that are heavy on my heart, step outside my box, be used my the Lord in the areas that He leads me and to be stretched by Him. That is my prayer today.

Job 42:2
"I know that You can do everything, And that no purpose of Yours can be withheld from You.(NKJ)

Philippians 4:19
And with all his abundant wealth through Christ Jesus, my God will supply all your needs. (GN)

I Corinthians 10:13
No test or temptation that comes your way is beyond the course of what others have had to face. All you need to remember is that God will never let you down; he'll never let you be pushed past your limit; he'll always be there to help you come through it. (Message)

Ephesians 3:20
Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]--(Amplified)

  2. Jenn- As I read your post the song "I go to the Rock" is playing on your music player. That is the answer to the question of why if God is our everything do we question or take it back into our hands...we need to go to the Rock over and over and over again. It is there that we find peace and comfort and it is at the Rock that we realize that God is our everything! This ministered to me this morning as I needed to know today that God is my everything! -love ya, Laurie

  3. Jennifer,
    I ask myself the same questions.

    A few days ago the Lord laid on my heart to really get to know Him.I have started this study,Anonymous by Alicia Britt Chole in my personal time,only on the second chapter.

    I feel anonymous at times.Ater starting this study God showed me these words through scripture...wait,hope and expect from the Lord.

    In His Grace,
    Tammy
