I want God to have all of me

“I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits, and in his word I put my hope.”  Psalm 130:5.

Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading: Daniel 5-6, Psalm 130, and Luke 3.

I was drawn to the “whole being” part of this verse.

Is my mind engaged in waiting to be sure of what He wants me to do?

I am easily distracted.  I am easily side-tracked.  I have a host of good intentions.

Sadly, I am unable to sustain a total turn to God.  He wants that from me.

I often think of things in relation to me instead of in relation to Him.  I believe that God wants me to do more reading but will I approach the reading time as if it is ordained by Him not me?

God has a plan for my life.  For me to have access to His Plan, I must remember that it doesn’t come on a sheet of paper entitled, “Today’s Plan.”  It will be an ongoing thing.  I cannot assume that I can “take it from here” and move off as I see fit.

I have surrendered my life to God many times and often in the ending prayer on this blog.  Why do I undo that “surrender” so often?

“Lord, I need You every second.  Not periodically.  Forgive me for choosing me over You. I cannot get things right on my own.  I need You.  Prick my conscience when I have wandered off.  I don’t want that happening.  I love You, Lord.”

During what portion of your waking hours are you intentionally yielded to God?
