Prayer For You Today 9/20/2012


Isaiah 38:19

“The living, the living man, he shall praise You,
As I do this day;
The father shall make known Your truth to the children.”

Lord, I live today as your child.  I plan to focus on this identity.  Undoubtedly I will be asking for guidance, messing things up, getting Your pristine plans dirty, and constantly asking, “Why?  Why?”  But You are used to the floundering of Your children.  You are a patient parent.  The lessons You have taught me in Your Word and through Your active love are helping me grow.  I can see the person You want me to become.

Like a child, I will run in lots of different directions before asking the way.  And by then, I will probably need to be carried.  It is very exhausting being a child.  But now, as You lift me up and comfort me with Your  promise of love and grace, I settle down.  To be wrapped in Your faithfulness is all I needed…I just didn’t know how to get there.  When I am done resting, will You tell me a story?  I love the one about the day I became Your child.

In Jesus precious name, amen.
