My heart is in need of some tuning by the Master Musician. I'm tired, I'm overwhelmed, my priorities are out of whack. I prayed, and the Lord laid on my heart to take a blog break. Could be a few days, could be a week...dunno.
So faithful readers, I'll be back, and hopefully more in tune with Him when I do. Those blogs I faithfully read, I'll be taking a break there too, with the rare exception of a few as the Lord gives me a few moments here and there. Please feel free to check in by emailing me, or PLEASE let me know if an urgent prayer request arises. I'll be praying a bunch, so I'd love to add you to the list if you feel led to contact me.
If you are prompted to pray for me, here's a handful of requests:
Father God, I praise You for Your sovereignty and Your goodness. I exalt Your holy name. Thank You for leading me and guiding me in Your way, and for helping me to obey. I truly long to please You with this decision to take a break from numerous things--things that are in the way of my hearing Your voice as clearly as I need to right now. Things that slide into first and second place when they have no business being there. For my brothers and sisters in Christ, Lord, I pray that You would lead and guide them to stillness in You in whatever way You see fit. Lead us and guide us to the deeper life, Lord. One that can only be found in You. As you call upon us to keep Your name in Christmas, help us first to keep You at the center of our hearts and minds each moment of every day. May it begin today, dear Father. And may it begin with me. For Your name's sake, In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
In the Key of HE,
