Calling on the Lord: Days 1 & 2

Happy Fall Y'all! It's time to write here. Time to write there. Time to shake off these fears, a time to speak, and time to share His messages faithfully. So to kick off what God's doing inside of my head and my heart, I'm going to do a "30 days" series for the 1st time here on my blog. Welcome to my first installment of "Calling on the Lord"!

Day 1

Verse: Teach me your way, Lord, that I may rely on your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart that I may fear your name. -Psalm 86:11

Today I am feeling vulnerable to all the stuff of life. I'm consumed with worries of current struggles and fearful about "what if this happened..."nonsense worries. Anxiety fills my heart and I don't know how to finish the lyrics of hope to a song I've been writing on my way to work. I don't know how you're working in all of this Lord and I feel so far from you Lord. And my heart? That's as divided as a freshly sliced thin crust pizza. Teach me Lord and bind my heart to your truth. Amen.


Day 2

Verse: Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat!...Why spend money on what is not bread, and your labor on what does not satisfy?-Isaiah 55

All those things I think will fill my life end up leaving me empty. I keep chasing them though, as if just a little more of worldly affairs will fill my cup. Just a little more security, just a little more admiration, just a little more control. And while I'm calling on you, you are lovingly calling me out on missed invitations, poor excuses, and less-than-better pursuits. You might not be so far after all.

In faith,
