All praise to You Lion of Judah! My Jesus, You made it all possible. Joy is possible because of You. Thank You. Holy Spirit, You are here and I don’t know all the divine intricacies of how it all works with my Triune God, nor do I need to. What is, is, and I’m so glad it is! I live life with God indwelling me; now I just need to bring that truth fully into the core reality of my being. . . grab each moment retrieving it, subjecting it to this truth, living it completely as Holy Spirit directs. Sounds real spiritual doesn’t it?
Reality check! Life is so busy now that once my quiet time with the Lord ends, time takes over~sometimes feels like I’m a robot with time as the controller. How to redirect that? OK. Pressure is off for a little while. Holy Spirit, I open myself to Your guidance . . .
Holy Spirit Your desire is to make me more vulnerable to You by burning off the calluses covering the wounds of my life. Every hurtful comment, every painful memory, every rejection, every sore scrape of ‘not good enough’ have scabs or calluses of protection which close up love of God from going in and coming out. You are calling for permission to burn these guards off the emotional vulnerability of my soul. Oh ouch Lord! That's really hard. You want me to trust You to shield these painful places, to heal them.
Oh God! Leave that room of misery and heartache I’ve worked so hard at sealing up, in Your hands? You want to unseal the door? You say Your love can heal if I permit You to take off the calluses and scabs? You ask me to be vulnerable to You and to trust You?
My God I promised to submit to You, and if You tell me this is the next step, then in fear and trembling I’ll give my permission to You. It’s not easy, but I know if You say it is necessary, then it is. I shall trust You and Your love for me; I bow down in worship before You.
