I see so much evil and injustice in this world, and I can barely fix the depravity I see in my own heart.
Scratch that, I can’t fix my depravity. Only Jesus can.
Jesus, I want to be so close to you and experience amazing fellowship and serve you so well, but am I ever feeling the intense fight and opposition from the world, my flesh, and the devil.
It’s absolute insanity. But Daddy God, I’m trying, and I’m trying my hardest to keep my shield raised and use my sword well.
I need to do the things that the Lord wants me to do right now, and do them well… Because at this moment in time, there’s certain things that only I can do for the kingdom, and there are certain people He needs me to minister to and love upon, and I have my own unique way of reflecting Christ. (…And recently, I’ve been hearing the Holy Spirit incredibly clearly; His sweet voice is so distinct, it’s such a joy to have delivered specific verses to the people He’s asked me to give them to, and I wouldn’t be surprised if I were used by Him sooner rather than later to do something that’s like… Big. Interesting. Glorious. :D )
Oh Jesus, please heal my soul and deliver me from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen.
