We have reached a new milestone with our eldest teen entering the restricted freedom of driving! My heart still palpitates as this new era has caused great anxiousness within me. I’m sure all parents can testify to that! We have encountered some bumps and jolts with our expectations versus the perception of our newest family driver. There is one in particular I want to share.
Oh Lord, as I sit at your feet I want to tell you I love you. Open my heart to receive more of you. I long for more of you. Take me to that river of life. Let me drink deeply from the wells of salvation. Renew my mind so I can be more like you.
Lord I thank you that you have my heart and you hold me safe when trouble comes. You shelter me and calm the storms in my life. If you were not surrounding me, holding me up, my heart would faint and I would fall. Oh keep me safe, hold me tight. I need you. Every breath I take comes from you, I fix my eyes on you. Oh how I long for your courts, take me to the river; the river of life that flows from your throne. Let the wind of your Spirit blow over me. Oh Lord, heal my brokenness, wash over me with the water of your word.
Oh Lord, meet me this morning before the sun creeps over the horizon, before the birds awake to feed their young and the cattle still rest in the meadow. All is quiet and still and my soul waits with anticipation to hear what you have to say. Delight my soul with your words. I wait with expectancy. I listen with anticipation. Oh delight my heart. Let me see and hear your wonderful words. Speak to me my precious Savior.
