Sticky notes for your soul: Prayer of the broken way

Standard


… so it’s a messed up little blue planet spinning here, Lord, 

and honestly, there’s just a whole mess of us struggling & suffering with grief we don’t know how to put words around, 

with relationships that we don’t know how to put arms around, 

with failures that we don’t how to put hope around… 

And frankly, we’re struggling real hard here to believe it, though we know it’s true: There is no soul growth without change & no change without surrender… 

And You cup our faces real close tonight and nod: “Surrender yourself to Me… wait patiently for Me…. You may want this cup of suffering taken away — but trust Me. Want My Will more than yours… ” (Psalm 37:7 GWT, Mark 14:36 NLT) 
And we nod & look into You & murmur back our true surrender: “Lord, if it most works things out to remove this suffering, please, please do. But if it most fulfills Your purpose in my life or another’s, please, please do not take it away — just be with us & carry us through… ” 

We are the Brave who will Brazenly Trust & Believe Big Things: Suffering quietly begs us to surrender — so we can win a greater wisdom, a deeper strength, a closer intimacy. And in our courageous surrender — all we want is to win more of You.

In the name of Jesus’ who loved us to death & to life…

Amen
