I Need You...

     Everyone needs to be needed. If they say they don’t care, or that they don’t need to be needed, they’re lying. Everyone has the basic need to be needed.  Think about it…think about how depressed we would get as teenagers when we were ‘dumped’.  How devastating is a divorce, or a friend that ‘deletes’ you. How sad when a sibling blocks you, or when a child throws every year in your face and walks away.  Yes, everyone needs to be needed…it is primal and it is the gift that God gives to us. 
     God Himself might not need to be needed, but He desires to be needed.  It is when we throw up our hands, choose our own path, turn away from Him that we are actually telling God Himself, to His face “I don’t need You…”   What a sad and depressing decision to make.
     Well, let’s change that.  Let’s tell God we need Him.  Let’s tell each other “I need you…”  Let’s call one another, (since we can’t visit) and listen to each other, let’s truly obey Scripture and carry one another’s burdens.  Let’s give our time.  Let’s love and need and support and carry and cry and laugh and listen and share.
   I need you…
