1-14-14 Ask

Image

This morning You told me I could ask for anything,

anything at all.

What in all the worlds could I need, Beloved?

I have You!

Does a fish in the ocean ask for water?

Does air ask for a breeze?

I cannot ask that You stay with me always.

That is like asking the sun to be bright.

I have no desire, for You provide.

Indeed, Your grace is sufficient.

Why then would You say I could ask for anything?

This is a test, I’m sure of it.

Let me dwell in the blanket of silence and listen.

~~~

Thank you, Lord, for exposing my foolishness.

I ask for Your forgiveness.

I ask that Your will be done.

Please lead me to the lost so they may be saved.

Please expand my heart so I may contain more

of Your perfect love.

Teach me to pray.

Teach me to ask.
