It’s too early!! | guest post
S~ Awake, harp and lyre! I will awaken the dawn. Psalm 108:2 (NIV)
O~ I’m up before the dawn – and I’m not loving it today. David says to sing and make music with all my soul. Ugh – it’s too early to do that!
A~ [ Insert solo worship session with YouTube and a quiet volume to not wake the family.]
P~ Father, what is it about worshiping You that changes my heart? How did I go from dreading the busy day to awe and wonder of Your majesty? You are so good! Thank You for singing and worship! I love You!
With Your Help; Not Alone | Kimi Miller
S~ With God’s help we will do mighty things, for he will trample down our foes. Psalm 108:13 (NLT)
O~ With Your help I will do mighty things. So why am I looking for something to do that doesn’t require Your help?
A~ I recently applied for a part time position and even interviewed for it – whether or not I got the job I have yet to hear, but I was convicted yesterday about my desire for the position. I realized why this particular job appealed to me because I feel like it’s something I can do without You – like all of these small tasks I’ve already had the training for. I can do most of the tasks without any real dependence on You and full reliance on myself.
I’m so sorry, Lord. Please forgive me for thinking I can do ANYTHING without You! I know You have plans for my life and that You can be trusted – that You are good and Your ways are best for me. I know, too, that Your greatest desire is for me to be Your and for You to be mine and my God.
P~ Jesus, I don’t ever want to be in a place where it’s easy to forget You! No matter how much I’m afraid of being hurt again, I don’t want to do anything apart from You. If this is something I still need to work out in my heart – if I’m not sincere in my desire to be with You and to need You – then clearly I’m not ready for You to open any doors. I trust You with and for everything. I love You.
