I so desire for the LORD's eyes to find me; for His strength to be shown in my life. But how can my heart be completely His?
The Hebrew word from which this phrase comes is shalem, which means to be made ready, peaceable, and quiet because of submission.
But the struggle for me is not one of overall desire. Rather the daily small choices that are so conditioned, so habitual... so selfish. It is a choice to give up the pride so encouraged by this world. To let go of my grasp for control... my striving and struggling to be seen, to be known by man.
It is the bowing,
not only of head in prayer,
but of heart, of strength, of desire.
Help me LORD!
I long for Your strength.
Change me, fill me, release me from
the flesh which cries out for significance.
See me LORD as your eyes search to and fro.
I cannot make my heart pure... completely Yours.
I need You for even this.
Be my Strength of Heart!
from my heart...
I write as an overflow... an expression of my true love for God and with a deep desire to encourage others in their day to day lives. For we can only find peace, joy, and satisfaction when we yield to the One who yielded His life for us.
