Everywhere I look there are needs. Big, overwhelming, heart-rending needs.
These are the needs that surround:
Some of our needs stem from the good things in life:
The new baby means sleepless nights.
The job promotion requires extra work.
The big exciting move means making new friends.
The first home comes with a long list of updates.
The new marriage stretches from the comfort zone.
The needs keep coming.
There are needs that we try to push to the side because other needs seem bigger in the moment:
The needs to be wanted, loved, adored, remembered.
The needs for conversation, hope, rest, support, community, and comfort.
Then there are the unnamed needs that keep nagging at our heart and we can’t shake them no matter how hard we try.
All of these needs are important. All of these needs matter. And you know what’s true? God is big enough for your needs too.
It’s easy to see someone who has great need and to feel like your smaller needs must take the back burner for the time being. But you know what else is true?
Your need is not so small that it will slip through His fingers. Your need will never be too heavy for Him to carry. There is no need too big or too small for Him to hold.
He carries it all simultaneously, and it gives Him great pleasure to do so.
What is your need? Name it. Place it in His arms and allow Him to carry it. He will see you through.
“Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.” 1 Peter 5:7
