All you'll ever need...

For the wives, mommies and gardeners who know that they are not enough in themselves...
and need to remember again that it is ok.



"All You'll Ever Need" by Andrew Peterson
(Hear it here.)

The blood of Jesus, it is like the widow's oil:
it's enough to pay the price to set you free.
It can fill up every jar and every heart that ever beat.
When it's all you have it's all you'll ever need.

The blood of Jesus,
it is like the leper's river running humble
with a power you cannot see.
Seven times go under,
let the water wash you clean.
Only go down to the Jordan and believe.
Only go down in the Jordan and believe.

And I need it, I need it.
The closer that I grow,
the more I come to know how much I need it.
The blood of Jesus it is like Elijah's fire,
falling on the altar of your faith.
All the wisdom of the world could never conjure up a spark,
But no power of Hell could ever quench this flame.
No power of Hell could ever touch this flame.

And I need it, I need it.
The closer that I grow,
the more I come to know how much I need the blood of Jesus.

The blood of Jesus, it is like the widow's oil:
when it's all you have it's all you'll ever need.
It is all you'll ever need.

Today this is especially for
Sarah, humble and persevering mother to five;
Jen, courageous mommy to three (one being a baby cancer survivor);
and Emily as she flies her way to Africa today to bring home two more.
