All I Need

All I need to do is worship
All I need to do is say His name out loud
All I need to do is lift my hands, surrender
And bow down
All I need to do is find Him
All I need to do is let His presence fall
All I need to do is worship
Worship the Lord

-Rita Springer, “All I Need”


Sometimes there is just nothing more important than worshipping the Lord. I sit down sometimes and look for something so profound to think I’ve heard from the Lord. Or I begin to read the Bible or search great religious books to find some great meaning in them all. It is so simple though; just stop, just surrender to Him. The second I stop trying to be so wonderful He comes in and truly shows me wonder.

I don’t ever have anything great to give Him but sometimes I think He wants me to just stop, and give Him exactly what I have at that moment. If I truly give Him whatever I have, however insignificant and little it is, He will take it and show me the beauty of His love for me. The second I stop trying to be so profound by my own doing, He brings me Himself, which is truly amazing.

The words of the Rita Springer song “All I need” are beautiful and so profound. What worship, what a great thing to realize, “All I need to do is worship.”

It’s sad how many times I have to be shown something. I can’t remember how many times the Lord has told me that I am so much better off when I let Him have control. Yet I insist on doing things my own way. It is so contradictory to yield to Him completely. He calls us to be meek, He promises us a wonderful life if we would just live meekly (Psalm 37:11: “But the meek will inherit the land and enjoy peace and prosperity.”). Everything in this society, everything that seems good in this world tells us that to live “meekly” (or submissively) is bad. In work, sports or anything else, being meek is not good. Yet with God, the only place it matters, the only thing that won’t pass away, we are called to “just bow down.”
