i need Him

I was driving home from somewhere the other day and this verse filled up every corner of my mind. I'm not sure why, because I hadn't read it in awhile.
(oh hello, God.)
It just kept repeating itself over and over. 
Every good thing in my life comes from Him. Even when I don't remember to stop and thank Him, He still keeps pouring out His love all over my life.
No, life isn't perfect. Not even close, actually.
But He is always there, and He can use the imperfect things for good.
He can change my heart to see the good.
I feel like He is asking me to recognize also that
apart from Him I can do no good thing.
It's all kind of in vain - the big and the little - He makes it all mean so much more than if I did it in my own strength.

Today I am thankful for this little nudge I got on my drive home. Sometimes those (rare) quiet moments are the perfect place to hear Him speaking.


  1. That is beautiful. I love when the Lord pops in and reminds us of these things. He is so good!

  2. Love this post! Isn't it great how He's always there for us, giving us more than we could ever need, even when we completely forget to take the time out of our day to thank Him?

  3. SO perfectly written.

    I found you through followers fest! What a beautiful blog. I have a Christmas series going on with a Christmas post a day for 50 days and it just started! You should check it out!



  4. love times like this! HE is good.
    love you, sweetie face!

  5. Today was one of those days when my daughter (once again) said she HATED her life. It breaks my heart, I know she doesn't mean it, it's just a way of calling attention. This verse I must remember when faced with this situation again.
