Never Alone

Never Walk Alone

Lord, my God.  I have walked for so long in loneliness.  Failing to live a simple truth. You never leave me.  I know you are near- but I must be willing to call to you.  In my distress and weariness of heart, to lay at your feet.  Acknowledge who You are; admit my need.  So long as I live in my own self-sufficiency- I push you away. My head is down, my eyes focused inward- barely lifting my head in response to your Spirit’s nudgings.  I lose that sense of you; loneliness clogs my soul, fogs my mind- leads me astray.

In you I find my hope.  In you I dwell in peace.  You bring comfort to my soul that no one can match.  You are the friend that sticks closer than a brother.  I want to live dwelling in you always.  To stop making excuses and just let you in.

I love the way you change me.  How I am startled and surprised by the wisdom that passes through my lips when I dwell in your Word and obey the call of your Spirit within me.  I know you will keep my feet from slipping.  I can walk in confidence and peace with you always beside me.  You direct and straighten my path, if I walk in Trust with You.  I want to walk in Trust. Slowly, and with intention- looking for my Savior.  Always giving thanks, living in gratitude- eyes lifted-expectant.  Seeking your advice and direction along this narrow way.

Oh Lord my God, may the hunger within me to know you never slacken.  May my arms reach for you when I am weary and sad.  May the first person I talk to when fear and unrest fills my soul be you.  Always you.

I love you my Lord, my God, Alpha and Omega, Jehovah Jireh- may my soul find rest only in You.

In Jesus Holy and Precious Name, Amen.

      So glad you stopped by Mitzi. God always amazes me. Each morning when I rise to meet with Him- He is so faithful to meet all my needs and inspire worship as I meditate on His Holy Word. Blessings on you. :)

    Sometimes your prayers remind me of Amy Carmichael. Have you heard of her? They feel so devoted, heart felt…beautiful. Thanks for being faithful to post your heart! I hear it and I love it…I’m calling on Him with you! Thanks friend!

      I have to look up Amy Carmichael. I know I have heard that name, but I can’t remember where. David and I are kindred spirits :) – I love the way he pours his heart out to God and is so honest in the Psalms. They are such a comfort to me, I thank God that He loves us even in the midst of our passionate emotions- as long as we, as David did, always return to the truth that our God is on the throne-even when we can’t see. All glory to our Lord and King. Blessings friend, so thankful to labor with you in prayer- and share our journeys of faith.
