What They Need

You desire to give of yourself

to the people in your life


You want to make sure you provide

what they need


You want to be everything you can

for them


But what they need more than anything

is for you

to spend time

with Jesus


Nothing will enable you to be

what they need


than being with Him


So guard your time with Jesus

talking to Him

listening to Him

learning from Him

repenting before Him

soaking in His love

being open with Him

processing the Word with Him

Worshiping Him






Then the radiance of Jesus

will be evident to all those people

who need you


And they will have

what they need –

* I was inspired to write this after hearing my friend Nicole Rowell speak on this subject.  Thank you, Nicole!  I am blessed by your time with Jesus.


Moses told God —  If it is true that You look favorably on me, let me know Your ways so I may understand You more fully and continue to enjoy Your favor.

– Exodus 33:13 (NLT)


…the Lord would speak to Moses face to face, as one speaks to a friend.

– Exodus 33:11 (NLT)


When Moses came down Mount Sinai carrying the two stone tablets inscribed with the terms of the covenant, he wasn’t aware that his face had become radiant because he had spoken to the Lord.

– Exodus 34:29 (NLT)


Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need.

– Matthew 6:33 (NLT)


Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.

– Matthew 6:33 (MSG)
