“Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim You, who walk in the light of Your presence, Lord.”
I’m always moved by what happens to my soul when I turn myself... my problems, my insecurities, my longings, my victories, my losses, my pain, my sorrow, and my joy towards the Lord. As I bring all of it, including my mess, into the light of His presence, I am relieved to find a Companion, a Rescuer, and a Shepherd who daily bears my burdens.
I’m always blessed when I recount the ways He has loved me. Lord, help me to remember how good You have been to me, even when my circumstances were not “good.” Keep me from the tendency to hide or run for cover, especially when I am hurting or struggling. May I walk in the light of Your presence and remember that Your burden is light, and because of Jesus we can come as we are, be fully known and accepted, and lay it all down at Your feet.
