Trying to live love well through the power of the Everlasting.

Stop running. Deep breath. Re-alignment. Excellent.

So I’ve been tripping all over myself lately in almost all aspects of my life, and I’ve known it. It’s been a weird month or so, and things have just been off, and for a whole host of reasons (but mostly discontentment) I just didn’t deal with it. But then I read two posts by a couple of smart guys, located here and here, and the Spirit of the Living God tapped my heart and was like, “So… you ready to talk yet?”

And I was like… “Ugh. No.”

Then about ten minutes later, I was like, “Er, I’m sorry. Yes.”

And the spirit of the talk/prayer, I think, can really be captured in this prayer by John Wesley:

I am no longer my own, but thine.
Put me to what thou wilt, rank me with whom thou wilt,
Put me to doing, put me to suffering.
Let me be employed by thee or laid aside for thee,
Exalted for thee or brought low for thee.
Let me be full, let me be empty.
Let me have all things, let me have nothing.
I freely and heartily yield all things to thy pleasure and disposal.
And now, O glorious and blessed God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
Thou art mine, and I am thine.
So be it.
And the covenant which I have made on earth,
Let it be ratified in heaven.

Amen.

Covenant Prayer
