I’m feeling overwhelmed these days. All my doing. My struggles are in my head, but that doesn’t take away the anxiety in my heart. It’s still there.
The “problems” before me are just that- they are before me. They are actually whispers in my spirit of what I am feeling nudged to do. Good stuff. Stuff I want to do, but I’m not sure HOW to do them. The vision is not a beautiful painting clearly outlined and complete. My nudges are a bit foggy and blurry, but this doesn’t remove the desire in my heart to walk forward into them. There is a voice calling me forward despite the unclear picture and the nerves.
My prayer has been for God to slam the door in my face and awaken me from the dream if it is just that- a dream.
This morning as my knees and face kissed the carpet, I found myself praying a different prayer. I heard myself praying, “God, help me live out of your reservoir of joy. Your reservoir of peace. Your reservoir of ability. Thank you.”
I love when God does that. I’ve been striving in my head and my prayers all week and then He gives me the words. The perfect words for my heart.
I share them because they are not just for me. Whatever Holy Spirit deposits in us is never just for us. His is to be shared and multiplied.
So, whatever you are going through this week, this month, this year. Whatever God is calling you to, this is my prayer for you and for me. For us. “God, help us live out of Your reservoir of joy, peace, and ability. May we dive deep into Your waters and drink.”
My reservoir is running dry. His never does.
I pray that out of his glorious riches (His deep reservoir) he may strengthen you with power through His spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith (Ephesians 3:16a).
