A sister in the Lord posted this morning:
How astounding to consider that when we pray, we enter a conversation about us already going on among the members of the Trinity. What’s left for us is simply to come and pray. To be honest with God–good, bad, and ugly included. We come to Jesus not as we can’t but as we can.
Thank you Deanna. I needed that. I would have added… “good, bad, ugly and sick with a bad cold” but I get the point.
I feel physically worse today than yesterday. It has affected my attention span with God. And that of course makes me feel “guilty” and lots of other things. But then to read Psalm 46 and realize that it never is supposed to be about me, but always and only about Him. God is to be glorified… even in my sickness.
So sis (and the siblings who follow this), I will come to Jesus today, not as I can’t, but as I can. It doesn’t need to look pretty, or be strong or deep. I will come just as I am.
Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.
Because He is exalted, He is able to be my refuge and strength, my ever present help in times of trouble. He is safe. I can rest in Him.
