I May Be Weak

Credit: by jschutt @

Have you ever experienced the Holy Spirit in such a way, that you could not only feel Him, but you could hear and even smell Him too? And have you ever heard a sermon with the distinct feeling that the pastor must have been reading your journal, or your mind? Sunday was one of those days.

I’ll admit that I have had a pretty bad attitude lately. I’m not super happy at church right now. I struggle with certain attitudes that have been directed at me, and it’s easy to fling my own attitude back. We have been trying out other churches a couple of times a month lately. We’re seeking but not necessarily leaving. Just… expanding our boundaries a bit.

But Sunday. Dear God.

I wasn’t really in the mood for worship. I was caught up in the Book of Isaiah, wanting to keep working through Day 54 of The Bible in 90 Days plan on my iPod, but also enjoying the music. I allowed forced myself to enter in. Closed my eyes, sang the song I knew by heart, offered it up to God as prayer.

Then a new song. I don’t know what it is about new songs, but it seems like hardly anyone sings or at the very least they don’t try to enter in as worship, but I was already there. And this song. My heart. It was my words. It was me. Not really MY words, but it could have been.

My attitude, my life, my fears, my stress, my worship, there. Praying it back to the One who keeps me going.

Tears. Streaming down my face. Knees on the floor. Oh God.

Give Me Faith by Elevation Worship

I need you to soften my heart
To break me apart
I need you to open my eyes
To see that You’re shaping my life

All I am, I surrender

Give me faith to trust what you say
That you’re good and your love is great
I’m broken inside, I give you my life

I need you to soften my heart
To break me apart
I need you pierce through the dark
And cleanse every part of me

I may be weak
But your Spirit’s strong in me
My flesh may fail
My God you never will

    Loved that worship song, Dawn! I hear your heart. It's awesome when God can break us down and make our desperate need for him to painfully clear. At moments of clarity like this, I wonder what on earth I had been thinking about before. He's so essential, what else matters? Praise the Lord when our hearts can still be moved by His Spirit!
