I've had that lyric in my head for days, it's my favorite part of the song. (see previous post) The thing about it is, there's a lot in the song and in the story that I don't relate too, that it's hard to identify with. But the one thing I can identify with quite easily is her desperation for Jesus. I can definitely relate to being in a place of absolute and total need and Jesus being the only one who can make me whole.
A lot of my prayers sound like this song by one of my favorite artists, Rosie Thomas. "Tie me ever tightly to your side so I can go with you wherever you reside." I always pray like that. Keep calling my name, don't ever stop. Give me the strength to hold on to you, don't let go! Come close, be near. I sound so needy most of the time. But with Jesus I think that's the best place to be. Honest, simple, desperate.
