Oh God, Oh God I Need You!

When I got tired of running from you
I stopped right there to catch my breath
There your words they caught my ears
You said, “I miss you son. Come home”
And my sins, they watched me leave
And in my heart I so believed
The love you felt for me was mine
The love I’d wished for all this time
And when the doors were closed
I heard no I told so’s
I said the words I knew you knew
Oh God, Oh God I needed you
God all this time I needed you, I needed you

Relient K – I So Hate Consequences

I want to go to sleep.  I can’t get these thoughts out of my head.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Psalm 23:4 (KJV)

I’m selfish.  I’m worrying about this, while there’s an entire city not caring a thing in the world about it.  In a heartbeat: over.  Gone.  Nothing.  Evil pervades the darkest corners.  About life I go — not caring a thing in the world for what’s around the corner.  “No idea what to do”, I say.  Yet all the while the person down the street is dying.  Completely oblivious that there’s life after death.  Suffocating.  Dying.  Yet, I eat and worry about my own self-absorbed issues.  Prayer?  It’s rarely thought of.  Like the thought of dying.  Out of sight, out of mind.  “Never”, we say, “I’ll die at 75 of natural causes”.  All the while, they die the next day.  Ended.  Gone.  In an instance.  Heave or Hell?  Not the words: the place.  Never fully understanding there was life after death …

  1. Satan has, always has had (since Adam and Eve), and always will have a hold on our fallen world until the day Jesus comes again.

    As hard as we try, we aren’t going to save everyone. Even if they hear the Word of God, they still don’t care. There is nothing we can do about it, it’s all upto God!

    I have seen and heard things that almost all non-Christians think is “unbelievable”. I ask them if they want to come to church with me, what do they say? “No.” As in they don’t believe me and if I am right, and they find out that God does exist, their life will change.

    People are afraid of change, they stick to what works, what they like, etc. If they like the life of a sinner, the only way they are going to change is though God.

    By the way, I love that song by Relient K 🙂

  5. Michelle,
    It has been over a year since you wrote that. You brought tears to my eyes. I pray the Lord is comforting you right now. I pray you will feel His love surrounding you. I pray for provision and favor. I am in hard times too- but more emotionally. One day we will all be together.No pain no fears, only joy. We will be singing and praising Him.
    Written with the love of Jesus,
    We all have to hold on,,,,tightly
    And pray for eachother.

  6. Michelle,

    I have been so absorbed with my own issues and fears that God isn’t hearing me that I selfishly forgot that I am not alone here. There are others who need him so much more. I will pray for you and your family. I wish I had the money you need so God could use me as an instrument to help you. It will come, Michelle. It WILL come. God bless you and yours.

  12. Please pray for my darling, he is going through a really hard time with himself and he thinks its related to his up-bringing. He needs a breakthrough- a different mentality. He wants it, and is searching. He trusts God. In the mean time, he needs strength, increased faith, guidance and most importantly, prayer. Thank you for joining me in prayer.

  15. I am also a teenager (16) and life has been so hard for me i am a christian girl and put my faith in God with everything i do but things have gotten really bad for me lately life is not going so well. My dad just got deployed to iraq, my hair has been coming out (tests are being run still by my doctor to figure out why), i have really severe acne, and kids at school dont make it any easier. I feel trapped and i just want to stay in my room and not come out i wanna be a doctor someday and help people around the world and i have no doubt that God has granted me with the knowledge to be able to do so i got a 4.25 gpa this year but sometimes i feel as though that is all i have. i am so hurt inside i also lost somebody very close to me and my grandma is very ill and doesnt have to much longer either and i love my grandma i dont want her to die:( but i know that it is coming sooner than expected. i know that the Lord is the only way for me to stop my hurt and ive been praying more and attempting to worry less but sometimes the tears just wont stop and it is interfering with my everyday life. Everyone says that these are supposed to be the best years of my life but i dont feel as though they are and if they are i hate to see my worst years..i just ask that whoever reads this prays for me please i need itt.. im so hurt insidee. im not doing okayy i just wanna make itt i am placing all my worries and struggles in God’s hands now cuz i know he is the only one strong enough to carry them all. im surrounded by unbelievers at my school and i try my best to obtain knowledge to disprove what they are sayingg and even though i most times succeed it still hurts that people would try to denie a God that only wants to help and be thier for us and provide eternal life for those who seek it.. well newayzz im gonna go noww but i pray i make it through this storm.. this too shall pass i know..

  16. Oh god, i m not studying, i m not intellegent. Plz help me studying so i get a job. And succes my dreams. God plz help what can i do in my life, i don’t no anything what is right or wrong.

  17. No one like me. I don’t have true friends who understand my feelings, who cares me. Plz give me gud frnd also.

  18. I say a prayer for all of you. You are not lone. God is with you. I pray that you will recieve all you have ask for. God hears all and He will help. Just keep believing in Him.Bless you all

  19. i need u i realyy do please rescue me ……i cannot harm myself because i cant imagine what that will do to people who truly love me…..jus want faith ….i want u 2 be wit be in these testing times the most pls jus help me too cross these incredibaly difficuilt barriers in life …..i will be forever gratefull

  20. god i need you i dont know what to do know my life is a hallow shell i don’t really do good on any thing i do forgive me that i’v let you down so many times i lov u . I know i am unworthy to have a god like you … but i aks one thing and one thing only… forgive me

  21. I came this site out of desparation. I need God, I need him i have bills to pay, I have exams to write, I have a non-existant social life, no one to hold or love. I am all out. I lack focus, my head spins out of control and day in day out life is just passing by without me accomplishing anything at all sometimes I feel so helpless and then it dawns on me that I am not alone. The struggles that I face are not new to me nor are they mines. These are problems that each one of us can relate to.

    Then we ask for God…we say where is God when we need Him, and we turn away from Him because we believe that He is not here. But the truth is , God is here , His words says that He would Never leave us or forsake us ……God is not man that He should lie, He is right here waiting for us to recognize His presence and to give our all ( sins, frustrations, hopes, our everything to Him. It is only when we empty ourselves of us can He come into our lives and lead us where HE wants us to be.

    I am not saying that things are going to change by the switch of a button, but I gurantee you that If you believe that God will make a way out when there seems to be no way that Things will get better . Remember, this too shall pass…..St.Paul says that we must count it a blessing when we suffer because it builds patience, fortitude and the works. And i recognize that when people are suffering as I am that we may not want to hear such things that we consider unrealistic but my friends we can Get angry with God but that does not help, we can get mad at the world but that does not help…Be angry and sin not… Empty yourself to God, that is what I am doing and I KNOw that He will deliver me.

    May God bless and strengthen all of you. For all who need help, love, jobs, whatever your needs are I pray that God will bless you according to His richness in Glory. HOLD ON, TRUST IN JESUS.

  22. Angyl, great encouragement — it’s something I think I needed, and I’m sure a great many other people do as well!

  23. To everyone out there…I hear you and feel your pain. Believe in our Lord Jesus…for I have been down, and by the grace of God, my prayers and BELIEF that God is watching down on us and never stops loving us. God is good…..pray to him and ask him to come into your heart and lead the way. He will wrap his arms around you, hold you and take you where you want to go or be. Trust in our Lord Jesus, for he has never let me down. I am one of his STAR children_ he ALWAYS , ALWAYS, picks me up and takes me to places I had never dreamed of! He ALWAYS places me down being in a better, greater position than where I came from. Let him love you…Trust and believe in him, MIRACLES BEGIN!! I love you all….
