How wonderful when God’s children come together as one. When differences are laid a side to serve others in His name. It lights a spark in each heart where His love can burn and remain. We each bring ourselves like covered dishes to Your banquet. A meal where all have a seat at the table. How glorified is God when we come together hungry and leave united full and satisfied.

Lord even in valley I long to worship you. My vow to follow you is true. I will perform each task you have set before me. May I find comfort in You despite what may be happening around me. May everywhere I journey be a place to witness and ponder your awesome authority. Are you pleased with my worship? Are you proud of the steps Your daughter takes daily toward You? I can hear You say, “I am God and my word is true. I will send your heart a Savior. Follow in His ways and know the glory with each faithful stride. I will settle down deep within your obedient soul. My hands will give you what you need. My water will quince your dry mouth. My words will feed your hungry soul. You will know the tailoring of royal robes not the irritation of stiff garments. Your face will shine with radiance of my love. You will be a dazzling jewel among my creation.”

Father I am just like the others; created and loved by You. Help me permit You to speak. I desire to not be underfoot as you work in and through our lives. You are the One who always sustains me when my steps stumble with fatigue. I am exhausted from fixing things which you continue to tell me are not broken. Place me in Your lap I need rest. For this life is full of regret and misunderstandings. My hope is in the promises of Your word. I am confident that the joy of Your forgiveness is greater than the shame of what could have been.

Can you hear how I need You? Even though my eyes can not see a thing I look for You. I know you can see me and I am comforted by the faith I have in Your promises. If You only saw my offenses I would be forever chained to this hollow place. Your greatness is glorified by the grace of forgiveness. I will endure these moments Lord, for I know waiting on you is right. I keep my eyes alert for a hint of my Master’s face. I listen with hope for Your voice. May I find the joys of life in You. I praise You now because I know my redemption is coming.

Lord do you remember?
For years they judged me by the choices of my past.
But they can never take away my salvation.
They have left gaping wounds on my heart.
But You Lord have healed me with the salve of Your gentle touch.
Give them a taste of their bitterness.
May their heads become heavy with the shame they smeared on mine.
What if they could see their cruel conduct in grand display across their pretty faces.
Lord would they then soften their hearts to seek Your forgiveness?
