Psalm 139:13-16

"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be."

You Are All I Need

I love "Healer" by Kari Jobe (thank you to Lyndsey for the CD!)  Just some lyrics from the music:

"I believe You're my healer.  I believe You are all I need...And I believe You're my portion.  I believe You're more than enough for me.  Jesus You're all I need...Nothing is impossible for You.  Nothing is impossible!  Nothing is impossible for You.  You hold my world in Your hands."

I have been a Christian since I was 13.  I have always known that He is all I need, but I just recently have really known this.  There is a difference in knowing something with your head and knowing something with your heart.  To be very honest, I have felt like I need not only Him, but my husband, my family, my friends, my job, etc as well.  Whenever we learned that Grace was not well, I really felt like I needed her to be well.  (Don't misunderstand me...I desire Grace to be well!)  I mean really, is He all I need? 

I don't know if I can clearly communicate this new-found heart knowledge, but God has given me such peace in knowing that He truly is all I need.  Even if everything in my life was turned upside down (I certainly feel like this is the case lately), He still truly is all I need.  When all is stripped away, I know that He is still with me.  He is more than enough for me.  More than enough.  Wow.  I believe it.  He is ALL I need.

Matthew 6:8 "For your Father knows what you need before you ask him."

Isaiah 58:11 "The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame."

Philippians 4:19 "And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus."


  1. Karen, you and Chad are both such an inspiration to Uncle Garry and me. I can't begin to imagine to know how you are feeling, but your heart is definitely in the right place and there is a HUGE difference in the head knowledge that GOD gives us and the heart knowledge that we have in many, many different ways. Keep praying and trusing in GOD as we are because we know that ALL things work together for the good to them that LOVE GOD!!! Praying for you daily!!!! Love ya'll!!!!

  2. Karen, I found your blog last night and I began reading. I am the Mom of a child with agenesis of the corpus callosum. You have such a beautiful blog that is filled with your very honest, touching, heartfelt feelings and also with inner strength that comes from God and His Word. There are a few things that I would like to share with you if you feel comfortable with the idea.

    You and your precious baby girl, Grace, are in my prayers and I will continue to pray for you, Grace's Daddy and baby Grace Elizabeth.
