This morning we picked up Gil from the Lighthouse and took him to church at Harvest in Washington. It was a great message, but what really stood out to me was a line from the first song we sang. It's called "Breathe" and as we lifted our voices in praise we sang "I'm desperate for you..." I clung to this phrase because it put into words exactly how I've felt since last Wednesday. I'm desperate for Jesus.
When we returned home I looked up the definition of desperate. It means having an intense need or desire. And then I knew for sure... I'm desperate for His love, His forgivness, His comfort, and His presence. As I've thought of it today I've just said a quick prayer and told God how desperate I am for Him - I guess it took this awful situation to show me how desperate I was for GOD:) (that is at least one blessing that has come from all this:)!!
