Happy Friday morn my Greatly-loved-daily-verse-peeps! Thank you for sharing with me … your lives and your thoughts and your walk with our Father
How is your memorization of Psalm 103:1-4 coming along? Great bus-car ride thing to do: break it down and hide it in your heart…. for spot-on recall when the enemy tries to scratch and worm his ugly way in.
‘Praise the LORD, my soul!
All my being, praise his holy name!
Praise the LORD, my soul,
and do not forget how kind he is.
He forgives all my sins
and heals all my diseases.
He keeps me from the grave
and blesses me with love and mercy.’ (Psalm 103:1-4 GNT)
Very often, when I pick up a pen to write, I have no clue what shades of words will lift out of the paper. My thoughts are scattered chaos (like my journals/scraps of paper/notes). No order. Lying around everywhere. Stuck in between pages of books. I used to think I was A.D.D. Now I know it’s just the way I am cut out. So, my thoughts scatter. So what. Big deal. Scattered thoughts still create something someone somewhere needs when placed in the hands of God Most High.
This is my prayer each day: ‘Father, use me. I am nothing without You. But, here I am again. Willing to be used. My time is yours. Simply use me.’
When I skip over those first words with Him….I get tangled up in my shorts with ‘what-ifs’: ‘who am I that anyone might read anything I write?’ Pit-dweller thoughts: ‘I am not good enough.’
I am a flawed one, indeed …but The Almighty can and will use any heart, flaws and all, that comes to Him and says, “I’m Yours. Use me”.
What is your excuse? Kick it to the curb and get out of your own way.
