In the beginning of my walk with Jesus I frequently sang a hymn that was really a prayer of surrender. I confess that I didn’t fully understand what I was singing, but it always seemed like the right thing to do.
Now, over fifty years later, it is more meaningful to me than ever as it describes my greatest desire which is to live in His presence. There really isn’t anything more important than living every moment in the awareness of the Lord’s grace and mercy.
I used to live for worldly pleasure but it was always fleeting. No matter what I desired, if and when I got it, the joy I wanted was never enough. It was like chasing a phantom.
At last I have discovered in Him the real peace and joy for which long I have sought. The contentment and ease I have in every situation is because of the reality of His glory which is becoming increasingly more delightful.
I pray that God will help me love Him with more abandonment than ever before.
