Jesus is all I need.

Jesus is all I need.

So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most. ~ Hebrews 4:16, NLT

Lord, You know the old hymn, I Need Thee Every Hour? It is so true — I DO need You every hour. I need You every moment of every day. Some days more than others.

Today is one of those days.

I need Your healing touch, Your grace. I need Your longsuffering as I wrestle with attitudes and ideas and callings. Thank You for Your mercy. I need for You to hold me and tell me it will be okay and remind me that this too shall pass.

I need You Jesus — just You — because You are the very thing my soul longs for. Only You can satisfy the needs of my heart.

I don’t know how You do it — how You do this personal attention to the details of our lives. It’s mind-boggling. But Your watchcare is evidenced by the many divine appointments, provisions, and protections that bear no other explanation than they are blessings from Your hand. Thank You.

I pray for those who are overwhelmed with the difficulties of life, who are suffering in their illness, drowning in their sorrow. I pray for those who just want to laugh again. Laughter really is great medicine! Cause laughter to bubble up and over and through their beings.

YOU Lord — YOUR joy is our strength.

Encourage these my friends. Remind them who they are to You. Help them focus on You — not their circumstances — but YOU, knowing that You are quite aware of their circumstances and are even now making a way where there seems to be no way. You are right now working everything together for their good, just as You promised.

We can trust You, Lord, to do what You said You will do. We can trust You to carry us through the muck to get to the other side.

We love You Lord. You are the Mighty God, awesome in power, doing wonders, always caring for Your children. Thank You Father.

In Jesus’ Name I pray,



Please don’t carry your burdens alone. I would be honored to pray for you.

If you would like to share your testimony of finding the nearness of God in your darkest moments, please contact me at I want to feature folks from all walks of life. You don’t have to be a writer. I can edit your story for you. God is glorified when we use our pain to help others find comfort in Him.

Tosin is wise beyond his years and shares much wisdom in his first book, Insights, that just released on January 1st. As I prepared for this post I visited Tosin’s facebook page and found this message alongside one of his photos, “Your words of encouragement, your words of inspiration, your motivating speeches… Cant just say it all. When you handle mic, you speak… When you hold pen, you write and I always wish I can just have that you know. But to go by your words, nothing happens by mistake. So there’s a purpose of me meeting you and I thank God I did.”

Now do you  believe me? This young man is very special. I can’t wait for you to meet my friend, Tosin Olabode.
