New Perspective – Old Song

This is the chorus to a very old hymn that someone just brought to mind today:

I need Thee, oh, I need Thee;
Every hour I need Thee!
Oh, bless me now, my Savior;
I come to Thee.

This was my response when I first thought of the song:

You know what? I used to think this song was only needed when I was in a phase of turmoil or hard times. But one day it dawned on me, not that long ago, that oh, I need Thee every hour pouring through all the nooks and crannies of my soul to give me breath to live, strength to walk, so that I might have life and life abundant. It’s a need every minute of everyday; no matter the joys, frustration, sorrows… good times or bad. Always need Thee. And when I accept His presence and sit and rest so He can actually pour through me… well then, that’s when my heart, soul and life are the fullest.
