Keep me humble, Lord.

"Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting." ~Psalms 139:23-24 KJV

When I first posted this passage a couple days ago, I was coming from a place of wanting, more than anything, to know my own weaknesses. I no longer want to live in that comfortable place of thinking everyone's Sunday Best is their everyday life, and that I'm doing just fine. I no longer want to be blind to my own shortcomings . . . I want to see as I am seen, to know more than the life I live inside my own head, but to understand the experiences of others, too. 

God heard. And answered. I wish I could explain it, because it's beautiful. All I can do is urge you to do the same: to plead with our Lord to teach and guide you to what you need to know so you can serve Him better. :-)

Lord, I love you so much!!! Thank You for the amazing things You keep doing in my life, and I thank You for the miracle worker and rich blesser You are. I will praise and bless Your holy name forever. Amen!!!

I welcome questions and concerns--they are most often what spur us closer to the truth. I only ask that we all give everyone the most generous benefit of the doubt, assigning the best motives possible. A soft answer truly does turn away wrath, and an atmosphere of Jesus's love is the best for learning, no matter which side of a discussion you're on.

Thanks so much, and God bless you!
