I Need You | Marisa Hartman
S~ “Lord,” Martha said to Jesus, “if you had been here, my brother would not have died.” John 11:21
“When Mary reached the place where Jesus was and saw him, she fell at his feet and said, “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.” John 11:32 (NIV)
O~ Both women were close to Jesus and fully believed that he was the Savior. They knew without a doubt that whatever He asked God to do, it would be done. In their grief and knowledge of Lazarus’ relationship with Jesus, they knew He could have saved him.
A~ That unwavering faith that Jesus will do what He says he will is something I’m working on. I know that He loves me, without a doubt. I continue to think that I need to handle my own problems instead of taking them to Him. My life right now is pretty great, but He still wants me to come to Him with everything. Just like Mary and Martha did, knowing that He will be there for me.
P~ Lord, forgive me for trying to handle life on my own. I need you in the good times and the bad. Thank you for your love and grace always. Amen
