HELP ME HELP YOU
My interaction with God the last few weeks has felt eerily similar to this scene out of "Jerry Maguire."
Have you ever felt like you are walking through an "up at dawn, pride-swallowing siege" in hopes of advancing the Kingdom? I'm there.
I. Am. So. There.
I have done all I know to do. Been on my face in prayer. Been still before Him. Purified my heart and even my body to be consecrated for His purposes. Hustled. Run up against brick walls. Been rejected.
And all I am trying to do is to put on an event to inspire people to open their Bibles.
I find myself begging God to help me serve Him. To let His favor rest on me as I run this race He has marked out for me.
But it seems quiet. A kind of "quiet" that is maddening to a girl who is working her butt off.
I wouldn't be surprised if God was up there saying, "You are hanging on by a very thin thread. And I DIG that about you!" I want to hang it up. Been tempted to do so several times this last week alone. But something tells me He will be glorified in my hanging on.
LORD God, let this be the quiet before the glory-filled storm! Break forth and come through in Your might and power. Make a way where there really seems to be no way! I am just trying to serve You faithfully. Please, please strengthen me to do so!
