IDOK Devotion for Friday, March 12, 2010
ABBA, I realize often times I am a bit over the top with this word usage thing but I liked it today. Thank You for humoring me. I pray it will help our IDOKs and Readers. Thank You for strengthening the faith that You placed in me. And I am confident You are going to keep on strengthening me and I am delighted about that. Thank You. Compared to carnal, worldly standards, I’d like to get just down right sickening with how wildly in love with You I am. I’d like love for You and people to just exude from every pore of me. I figure that will take some time and some work but lets do it! I am mindful that such conversation could be construed as silly, too familiar or some other negative connotation but I think I’m finally getting ready to run that risk – it’s easy here on the page of this screen – get me to the place that it is easy out there too in the midst of people that intimidate me. In fact I’m asking You to grow and mature me to the stage that my love and reverence for You far exceeds my desire to please man, woman or child. I am asking to come to the place that I just abandon myself to You; not that I would disregard the feelings of others but that I would be freed up to love and help them without being concerned about me. Empty me of me and fill me up with You. It’s time to move on, isn’t it? Move on to others. Others who will be spoken here with some serious needs. Bless them, keep the safe from all harm, strengthen their faith, increase their knowledge of Your Word; help them more and more to know You and believe You. In Jesus’ Name. Amen and amen.
