How many days do I start with— Dear God?
How many times do I utter those words?
I remember reading Judy Blume‘ s Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret as a kid.
Sometimes I feel like her.
That innocence and curiosity with an edge of agitation. You know that one?
Some days I feel joy and abundance.
Most days in utter desperation of not knowing what the future holds, carrying sin’s in my heart, and just plain old humility of my humanity.
Dear God, I pray. Dear God, I cry.
Dear God, I whisper in the dark recesses of my heart.
Some days I forget the gravity of uttering the words— Dear God.
Today, I am aware of the magnitude of calling your name, conversing with You, communing with You.
The God of my understanding is omniscient and He: put me together in spirit and in form, put me on a path to know Him, put me on a path that I may see His love for me and the ones I love.
Whether in joy or sorrow, victory or utterly devastated, You show up in kindness and love.
The chambers of my heart echo songs like these:
Nothing can separate me from Your love
You know the plan for me: plans to prosper me
It is written in my heart to seek and to know of Your love.
Dear God, may I see you and know you today.
