. . . Scripture to meditate on
Search me, God, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts.
See if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.
. . . a song to take us there
. . . a prayer to seal these quiet moments with Him
Dear Gracious Lord ~
We put our One Words, our UNwords, our plans and agendas in Your hands.
Our filling calendars, our daily work, our dear families, our endless desires.
Our clawing anxieties, our far-too-real fears, the junk that takes up too much space in our heads.
The useless objects that clutter our homes and empty our wallets.
And all that we clutch at far too tightly.
Take our ugliest sins and our deepest shame.
Our hard won glories and our futile acclaim.
Here's our lives, Lord.
Speak what is true.
How we so badly need to hear what You have to say.
Quiet us, calm us, prepare us so we can clearly discern Your voice.
Strong, loving, wise, and convicting.
Open our hearts wide so we will respond to the truth You long to whisper deep.
Turn us inside out and upside down by Your Spirit.
Make us anew in Your holy image.
In Jesus Name
