A Shelter For My Wandering Heart


His Word

Then I realized how bitter I had become, how pained I had been by all I had seen. I was so foolish and ignorant -- I must have seemed like a senseless animal to you. Yet I still belong to you; you are holding my right hand. You will keep on guiding me with your counsel, leading me to a glorious destiny. Whom have I in heaven but you? I desire you more than anything on earth. My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; he is mine forever. But those who desert him will perish, for you destroy those who abandon you. But as for me, how good it is to be near God! I have made the Sovereign LORD my shelter, and I will tell everyone about the wonderful things you do. Ps 73:21-28

My Prayer

 Oh Father in Heaven how my heart aches for You. I look around and see all that is going on and sometimes I am afraid. I too easily think that somehow I can fix things or make them better. How foolish I am when I take my eyes off you. I  forget that You alone are sovereign. You alone hold all things in Your hands. Why do I so easily forget You? My heart is so prone to wander far from you. Help me see You in the everyday, ordinary events of my life. Do not let my heart wander.
Help me to offer myself and my life up to You.

Oh Father how I desire to be completely filled up with Your Spirit! Come Spirit of God and fill me! Father help me surrender those places that are still filled with me and my desires. Help me to surrender completely to Your will. Keep my heart still so that I might hear Your Spirit's whisper.
Guide me. Teach me. Stretch me. Grow me. Mold me. Remove all that keeps me from you.

Strengthen my heart and mind that I might not turn from You in times of trouble. You alone are my shelter. You hold my life in Your hands. Draw me near Lord. Draw me ever nearer to Your Spirit. Amen
