Who Is Your Everything?

I talk to Him when I need someone to listen. I complain to Him when I don't want to upset someone else. I cry on His shoulder when no one else cares. I lean on Him when I am weak. I laugh with Him when something's funny. I rest in His arms when I am weary. I hide under the shelter of His wings when I am afraid. I stand behind Him when I need to battle. I share with Him when I have good news. I dine with Him when I need to be filled.

Jesus is my Everything.

I praise Him in the morning. I call out to Him from the night places. I run to Him when I am in trouble. I linger at His side when I want someone to hang out with. I follow Him as He leads.

Jesus is my Everything.

I trust Him with my life. I have faith He has my best interests at heart. I believe He has a place prepared for me. I know He loves me. I call Him friend.

Jesus is my Everything.

I see His immense creativity in the world around me. I taste Him in the garden of life He's given me. I smell Him in the flowers. I hear His voice whisper in my heart. I feel Him immerse me in His presence as I worship. I know He exists, because I've experienced His abundance of life.

Jesus is my Everything.

He is love. He is truth. He is holy. He is pure. He is righteous. He is all-knowing. He is worthy. He is just. He is strong. He is mighty. He is powerful. He is gentle. He is compassionate. He is my all-in-all.

Jesus is my Everything.

When you need someone to talk to, to hold you, to bring comfort and peace, who do you rely on? Is it your spouse? Your parent? Your child? Your friend? Who is your everything?

I run to Jesus, because none of the people mentioned above are perfect. None of them can fill the void in my heart like Jesus can. None of them bring me satisfaction like Jesus does. Jesus is my Everything, because His love is perfect. He never disappoints. I can put my faith and trust in Him and know my life will be complete.

Jesus - You are my Everything.

Blogging Through the Book - Everything is a book about finding the freedom to give everything to God. Written by Mary DeMuth, it is scheduled for release on October 16th. You can pre-order it through Amazon now. I am blessed to be a part of Mary's launch team. As I read through the book, you'll find scattered blog posts about what I'm discovering along my journey to handing everything in my own life over to God. I hope you'll join me in my journey and find some encouragement along the way.
