Listening to teaching and worship as I clean and rest. God has brought me to tears about much in my life and there is a renewed hunger for more. I have realized in so many ways that I have placed so much energy on being recognized. (wow… this is embarrassing to confess) that I have lost the genuine delight in God. I strive to know him and trust him. I chose to perform ministry in whatever avenue, no matter how small and obscure it may seem. Lord, I trust that you will change me from the inside out.
I recognize the power of my unmet needs as a false and inescapably frustrating god. I repent of this and I move forward to Joy.
