Lately, at night, trying to quiet the frenzy in my mind is like trying to stop a freight train moving at full speed single handedly. I try to talk to God and end up chasing my tail, off on this and that, what about this, what about that, what if, did I do this, was I nice enough, caring enough, did I listen well, is everything going to be alright, I should do better at this... Tonight, from somewhere deep within my soul rose up a song of old, a quiet and simple hymn, it goes like this:
I need Thee, O I need Thee
Every hour I need Thee,
O bless me now my Savior,
I come to Thee.
Over and over I just started singing it in my head and with its penetrating wisdom and soothing melody, I find myself gratefully at peace.
