PRAYER Lord, sometimes there are echoes of praises resounding in my soul which are extoling You even as I long to extol You more. But as I seek to bring these forth instead of wordy, they are wordless. There. Awe. Confident trust. Majesty. Your essence and nature and being of Love. The Source of all confidence in what is because of what will be.
So I guess for the moment I will just enjoy You. You know all on my mind and heart. I know what You have asked of me and what You have promised. I have counted off the list of people and situations to You that matter so much to me and then laid them before You. Laid them there and let go obediently so I can be before You emptied. With empty hands and a mind no longer buzzing with thoughts which tend towards worry because You have impressed upon me that Your order for my day is praise. In this place. Because of who You are and how You love and that You are with every single one which I might be tempted to pick up and carry – because You made me to love, too.
You see. You know. And You are working through it all (it all!) -especially when I cannot see – for the consoling and healing of untold hearts and greater activation of Your exquisite, unfathomable plan of forever. (Jesus is is the season of Your cross!! And resurrection!! I see how and who You are!! And I cannot worry in Your presence!!)
In this moment, thank You that You are here, ready and looking to lead each one through what is and what is next unto life with You as You always intended forever.
You reign. Here my humble offering in response. Awe. Gratitude. Wordless petitions which are so deep and core they don’t even reach lips. And You are already addressing these. Sacrifice of praise (!) in the midst of whatever is and will be. Choice, choosing and choosing again to trust because You are. Humble bowed-down thanks. Yes, You reign. And in every storm, this makes You the Rock. The only One upon whom I can lean and rely. Richest blessing!! In Your mighty, wonderful Name amen.
