Some mornings, I’m surprised by how much “comes up” from within me onto the page…
And other mornings, I feel as though I’m still processing what the Lord is wanting me to process by the time He leads me to go ahead and start typing.
When I am in process, I tend to be shorter on words…and that’s okay.
And what I love about this passage of scripture, which is called “A Prayer of David”… is that in these lines, he is processing… he is in process… and as he is in process, he is also in prayer. This ended up being holy scripture!
Being in the midst of being “still in process” is not only an “okay” place to be, but it’s also a beautiful place to be.
And there is something God wants to show us through these scriptures and seeing David in his “time of processing” with the Lord…
11 O Eternal One, guide me along Your path
so that I will live in Your truth.
Unite my divided heart so that I will fear Your great name.
12 O Lord, my God! I praise You with all that I am.
I will rightly honor Your great name forever.
13 For Your loyal love for me is so great it is beyond comparison.
You have rescued my soul from the depths of the grave. —Psalm 86:11-13 The Voice Translation
11 Teach me more about you, how you work and how you move,
so that I can walk onward in your truth
until everything within me brings honor to your name.
12 With all my heart and passion I will thank you, my God!
I will give glory to your name, always and forever!
13 You love me so much and you placed your greatness upon me.
You rescued me from the deepest place of darkness,
and you have delivered me from a certain death. —Psalm 86:11-13 TPT
Father, thank You that we can come to You and dwell with You and talk with You while we’re in the midst of being “in process” … how You love to unite our hearts when we come to You to be put back together right, time and time and time again. ? Not only is this a beautiful thing in Your sight, but it brings You joy to do it.
Lord Jesus, we don’t have to be “fixed” to come to You… You just say, “come and follow me” and the journey of “process” begins there. ?
