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.
