I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. Psalms 139:14 -
I must be honest:
There are times when i've doubted my self-worth, or should I say compared myself to what our society has defined as being wonderfully made. The pressure of measuring up seems to be never-ending; Who can keep up? From plastic surgery, obtaining high numbers via social media, not to mention the intense pressure of being a wife, mom, daughter, friend... This can all be so overwhelming! I've learned that ONLY GOD is the perfect example, therfore to strive for preferection is meaningless. This scripture reminds me that I must maintain a posture of humilty, peace, and gratitude.
I must seek Him daily, seeking Him on occassion when I'm feeling depleted or in stress mode is not enough. The psalmist reminds us that He wants us to stay connected such as, He's the vine and we are the branches (stay close to Him).
He is our resting place!! We were made to fellowship with Him daily. I'm learning through prayer, worship, studying His Word, We refresh ourselves in His presence. God alone is enough!
Dear Lord, I pray that a refreshing come over my life. I ask you to deepen my understanding of who You are. Deepen my desire for your word and your sweet gentle presence to saturate me. Lord, I invite your truth to invade my mind, will, and emotions. I declare that I grow in prayer and study Today! I say nothing shall come to hinder, abort, or stunt the process of maturity in my life. In Jesus' name, Amen
