There are songs that can touch you every time you hear them. They can touch your deep emotions.
This is the air I breathe
This is the air I breathe
Your Holy presence
Living in me.
–Breathe by Michael W. Smith
I have songs that touch me so deeply that they bring tears to my eyes every time I hear them.
This is one of those songs for me.
And I, I’m desperate for You
And I, I’m lost without You
Every time I hear that verse, it gets me!
It touches my heart and emotions! It makes me want to fall down to my knees, raise my hands up and look up towards the heaven.
It comforts me. It comforts me knowing that he is always there for me. All I need to do is turn to him and say “God, here I am!”
Many times when I hear this song, I am so choked up during some of the phrases that I can only try to smile, listen and reflect on how lucky I am to live by Faith and to have God in my life.
I am lucky…
No, I am blessed to live with God in my heart.
I am totally lost without Him.
Recently I have been testing my faith…
I know we aren’t suppose to test our faith…
Life changes, being an empty nester, not having direction, being middle aged, looking for a job/career, not having a church home, Dad’s struggles with illness…all these things have made me a little lost. No, it has made me very lost!
There have been times when I pray over and over and over again “Hello, God, HELLLLLOOOOO??? Are you there?”
“Hey, God, it seems like you are forgetting about me…”
“It is lonely down here without you.”
“Life isn’t the same here, without you.”
“God, What is going on? What is your plan?”
“I NEED you, God…”
“I WANT you, God…”
“I can’t live without you in my life!”
I pray that, but deep in my heart, I know He is there. I know that He is just waiting for me to have total faith in Him for Him to guide me. Or He is trying to teach me a lesson at which I am not being a good student?
During these times, I know because of my Faith that HE IS working wonders….
His every word IS being spoken to me. (The question is am I being quiet enough so I can listen!)
I will always be lost without HIM!
I don’t want to live my life without HIM!
I will continue to grow through my Faith.
I will continue to believe…
I will continue to work on being a good student of God.
I know he has a plan for me…
I know he has a plan for you….
I know I will look back to this time and think “Wow! Wow, God, you did remarkable things through me. Thanks, God, for teaching me so much. Thank you God for giving me all that I have today. Thank you for that door that you opened. I see now why you waited so long to open that door. Thank you, God. Yes, I will always be lost without you.”
What song touches you deeply? Is it a song from your childhood, your wedding, from high school days, or church?
