Morning Prayer

Lord Jesus,
       The "quill of Your will" is on my heart this morning, what have you already penned concerning me? What is Your hope for my life? What is the scope of Your desire for me? I want to know. More than anything, I want to know! And yet . . .
        the prayer of my heart this very morning was, "Just hold me, Lord. Let me simply rest here in Your sweet embrace. Let's enjoy one another." Perhaps you wanted more. Perhaps you wanted to speak. Were you hoping for an attentive, listening ear? I only wanted to draw into that place in You where I feel safe, loved, happy, and secure. That place of rest . . . where I am changed without working at it. That beautiful place where knowing You is the most important thing to me. That oasis where loving You is my greatest joy, and knowing You are my portion is more than enough. 
Because You live!

"I say to myself, "The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him." Lamentations 3:24 NIV
