I am not ashamed to admit I simply don’t stand a chance without God. My family and most of my friends know that I had a subarachnoid hemorrhage due to a ruptured brain aneurysm nine years ago...in my sleep. That doesn’t just happen, folks. People who have ruptured brain aneurysms in the middle of the night while they are asleep do not wake up again.
Left to my own devices, I am a mess. I am like a lost, bewildered three year old overwhelmed by the world around me. Then I reach for my Father’s hand and it closes tightly around mine. He assured me I am safe. He will lead me through all of the chaos. He will guide me, help me and protect me. He will help me understand what I cannot. He will help me do what I am incapable of doing on my own and most of all, He loves me with an unending love and will NEVER leave me or forsake me. The same is true for you so let Him take your hand not just today but every day.
Yesterday morning, during my quiet time, the following hymn came to mind and I found this beautiful rendition of it. Truly I need God every hour. I believe we all do.
Yes. Truer than w e know
