“May my cry be always, Only Jesus! Only Jesus!
In Him is freedom from condemnation,
fullness in His righteousness,
eternal vitality in His given life,
indissoluble union in fellowship with Him;
In him I have all that I can hold; enlarge me to take in more.
When I backslide,
let me like Peter, weep bitterly and return to Him;
When I am tempted and have no wit,
give me strength enough to trust Him;
When I am weak,
may I faint upon His bosom of eternal love;
When I am in extremity,
let me feel that He can deliver me;
When I am driven to the verge of hope and so the pit of despair,
grant me grace to fall into His arms.
O God, hear me!
Do more for me than I ask, think or dream.” Valley, pg. 54
Daily, I discover my most desperate need is more of Jesus in my life, my attitude, my words and my actions. When I attempt anything (relationships, business, training, study, counsel) apart from Him, it is an exercise of futility. In Him, I am made whole.
