Plea for Grace

A New Start

Posted on: March 2, 2009

I looked, and my last post was in January????  what’s the point in having a blog if I don’t ever blog, was the question I pondered.

I guess the problem was, I was trying to write “just the right thing, at just the right time.”  I was making too much of this, and thus giving myself a major case of writer’s block.

So, today, the first weekday in March, is a new day, and a new start to this blog.  These entries will be basically, some thoughts, some brief journaling, on the Scripture of the day.  Here is today’s entry. . .

Psalm 73:25-26

“Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”

God, are you really everything to me?  Can I honestly say that there is nothing on earth I desire besides you?  That is my heart’s desire.  God, if you are everything, then I don’t need the approval of others to be ok; You absolutely love and accept me.  If you are everything, then I don’t have to worry; you will provide what I need, when I need it.  If you are truly everything, then I can be free to release people from any expectations I may have.  You are all I need; you are my forever portion.

Knowing that You are the strength of my heart is so comforting to me.  The phrase “my flesh and my heart may fail”  resonates as I deal with my failing health.  I don’t have to worry about the future.  You are the strength of my heart in the present.  You are my portion forever, for the future.

God, I want you to be my everything.  I truly have no one else but You.

I want to know what you think!
