Building an altar

Though I'd like it to be different, my belief in God is often so very limited. My theoretical, theological faith is different than my operational, daily belief. One of the places that's evident is in my lack of prayer. Functionally, I'm not sure if He'll come through even in my best moments, and I'm sure He won't in my worst. There are times, however, when He doesn't leave me with another thing I can do, yet He won't let the burden off of my heart regardless of how I try to distract myself. I'd love to report that in these times, my prayer life grows rich and strong, but even then it is so very feeble.

He came through this time. Unmistakably. So clearly that even I can see and hear; so specifically to my burden that I know He is in this. The countdown has stopped (or at least He hit the snooze bar).

I am in awe, searching for the words to praise Him. They won't be enough.

The road ahead is uncertain, but likely filled with twists and turns, ups and downs. Yet I will build an altar here, in this place and time, as the men of old did, to mark that He was here for me. He has done a mighty thing. Blessed be the name of the Lord!

Praise the Lord!!!! I hope you don't mind me responding to your entry. I've seen you(your user icon) on itsacountry and lucky17pennies ljs. It's so neat to know there are fellow brothers and sisters out there on lj!!!!!!

I can read the excitement in your voice. I pray your personal relationship with Him grows more and more. He's already given us everything we need to live a full and victorious life....His life.

The more we learn of Him, the more we fall in love with Him so the more we want to be with Him and the closer our walk is with Him.:-)

Thank you for sharing this part of your heart.
