For the last several days I have just felt sort of—- I don’t know, I guess the word would be BLAH!!!
Maybe that is not a good way to explain it? I have just felt sort of out of the loop. Disconnected, maybe. Like maybe, something is missing.
As I was rushing off to work today, I stopped at my computer to check to see who my prayer sister was for the day. Then I quickly pulled up the devotion for the day from Proverbs 31. I read over it quickly( getting my fix for the day) and closed the top down on my computer.
I had no more than closed the top on my computer and it was as if I heard the words— Is that all of the time that I get from you today?
When I got in my car to head to work, the first words that I heard from the song playing on the radio were something like this—— All He wants is me on my knees worshipping Him.
Later in the morning, I begin to think about the words to the song that I had heard on the way to work. I begin asking myself a few questions. How much time have I spent with Him lately? Of that time, how much have I actually spent worshipping Him? Thanking Him? Praising Him? Listening to Him? How much of that time have I actually spent on my knees???
These were some pretty tough questions I had to ask myself. Unfortunately, I am sad to say, that the answers were no too pretty. So many times, in the last few weeks especially, I have not set with the Lord and just spent unlimited time in His presence. My time with Him lately, has been quick and hurried. My time with Him has been me asking a lot of questions, asking Him for a lot of answers to my prayers. Little time listening. Little time spent worshipping Him. And little time on my knees!!
I love the mornings when I come to Him first thing, with a childlike trust. Yearning to see Him. Willing to listen to Him and allow Him to direct my day.
He is the something that I have been missing lately. I am so glad that the Holy Spirit tugs at my heart to remind me of this. I miss my sweet Jesus.
Father, forgive me for setting you aside for other things. Forgive when I sometimes put you at the end of my day instead at the first. Forgive me for spending more time asking, than worshipping. Thank you for reeling me back in. I love you, Lord. You alone are Holy. You alone are worthy of my worship. There is none like you. In your name, I pray. Amen.
Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.
My lips will shout for joy when I sing praise to you— I, whom you have redeemed.
