Already All I Need

Lydia has been happy but tired today.  She is doing well and trying her best in therapy.  In PT/OT she was bending over to pick up letters to spell her brothers names.  Tonight there were therapy pets at Holland Bloorview, so Lydia was taken to the gym for a short time to see, pet, and hold the many different pets that volunteers bring in to share with the inpatients.  By 7:30, she is ready for bed. 
Lydia has a new room mate, Christina, a 17year old whom Lydia knows because she has been at Holland Bloorview for a while too.  They get along fine.  Her previous room mates have been discharged - how wonderful to see them recovered enough to return home.

This powerful worship song, by Christy Nockels, has been my refrain today: Already All I Need.  Yes, Jesus, you are already ALL I need.  Thank you.

Asking where You are Lord, wondering where You've been
Is like standing in a hurricane trying to find the wind
Hoping for Your mercy to meet me where I am 
Is forgetting that your thoughts for me outnumber the sand
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/christy-nockels-already-all-i-need-lyrics.html ]
You fill the sun with morning light
You bent the moon to lead the night
You clothed the lilies bright and beautiful

You're already all I need
Already everything that I could hope for 
You're already all I need
You've already set me free, already making me more like you
You're already all I need
Jesus, You're already all I need.

Walking through this life without your freedom in my heart
Is like holding onto shackles that You have torn apart
So remind me of your promises and all that You have done
In this world I will have trouble, but You have overcome

And every gift that I receive, You determined just for me
But nothing I desire compares to You

In your fullness, You're my all in all
In your healing, I'm forever made whole
In your freedom, Your love overflows and carries me
You carry me, yes You carry me, You carry me
