Jesus is All I Need

I have no words today but wanted to post these lyrics for you all to enjoy. If you go to the Caedmon's Call myspace page and click under Share The Well album on their music you can listen to the song "All I Need (I Did Not Catch Her Name)".

Lots of thoughts in my mind and heart this week. Really simple but profound truths growing on me about what sin, confession and repentance is. It is really opening up my eyes to see how defeating it is for how most people (namely myself) deal with sin and how we view it.

Ruth Bible study starts Saturday night. I am excited but nervous. Nervous as in not afraid to do it but nervous in that it is a HUGE responsibility to do it. God takes His Word very seriously and I don't want to do anything to lead people astray. Pray for continued humbleness and brokenness to happen in my heart and that God would speak to us in a mighty way in this leading I am being faithful to answer. Pray that God would open eyes to see and ears to hear His Word and that we would be granted repentance through the miraculous working of His Holy Spirit. I know whom I have believed and He is faithful to His Name.

Grace and Peace,


Did not catch her name
Did not catch her tears
It hit me like a train
When her story hit my ears
Mother of eight sons
Father off to war
Got no home address
Just bricks on a dirt floor
Jesus is all I need

Tiny plot of land
Corn stored up in piles
Years it doesn't rain
They just stay hungry for a while
No fatted calf to kill
She made a feast of cuy and corn
She said, "Who else knew my name
Before the day that I was born?
Jesus is all I need
Jesus is all I need."

She bragged about her boys
How they're growin' into men
How they learned to praise the Lord
Old Style Ecuadorian
To buy the new guitar
They had to sell the swine
Said, "My boys go to school on a foreign angel's dime.
This world calls me poor
I bore my babies on this floor
He always provides
Sure as the sun will rise.
So I'll sing Him songs of praise
'Cause I know He'll keep me in His gaze."

Rain poured from the sky
We raced back to the van
There were tears in the eyes
Of this poor, forgetful man
Mother of eight sons
She knows the peace of God
Lord, help me learn to lean
On thy staff and thy rod
Jesus is all I need
Jesus is all I need
