I don’t like this, Lord
Not at all.
It’s inconvenient, somewhat painful,
And to be perfectly honest…
Not in my plans.
Did You ever think about, I don’t know,
Checking with me?
I have a lot going on, Lord.
Wife, mother, co-worker, friend,
(And the list goes on).
People depend on me to be
But getting back to that honesty, Lord
I don’t like this,
Not at all.
This particular circumstance is
Why this situation, Lord and
Isn’t there another way I could
“Bring You honor?”
And Lord, if it’s ok…
I have one more question:
How am I supposed to glorify You
When I’m so overwhelmed with me?
Don’t you see, Child? It’s my desire for you to be Overwhelmed…with Me.
And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39 (NLT)

Beautifully written. “Don’t you see, Child? It’s my desire for you to be Overwhelmed…with Me.” I have found that when I am overwhelmed in His presence… it brings me the most peace I’ve ever felt. Thank you for sharing this!
Thank you, Emily! Yes, it’s that amazing, perfect peace that the world just can’t duplicate!
