  • Mood:

Him over me

Sometimes it's difficult to follow directions. In that, it's also hard to trust God over myself, His power over my ability to act, His mercy more than my concern, His strength over my desire to fight, His love above my own. You'd think it'd be easier, but it's still not.

Instead, I can pray: God, reveal Yourself. Show how far You've gone for the sake of loving us. Remind us that there's nothing about us You haven't seen, no ugliness that's been hidden from Your sight that would cause You to reject us. You have clothed us in another loveliness, Your own. You long for us as Your bride and have conquered death and hell to have us. You have given us a new identity to live into, and even in those times when we don't, it is still ours.
