I will trust in the Lord forever,
For the Lord God is my everlasting rock.
You Lord make the path of the righteous level;
You make level the way of the righteous.
In the path of your judgments, O Lord, I wait for you;
Your name and remembrance are the desire of my soul.
My soul yearns for you in the night;
My spirit within me earnestly seeks you.
O Lord, give me peace, for you have done for me all my works.
Isaiah 26: 3,4,7,8,9,12
Have you ever felt emotions, but had a hard time putting them in to words? Like when you pray to God to express them, but can’t because any description or request you give seems to fall short of what is going on in your head/heart/soul?
I do. All of the time.
I feel like a looped recording sending the same phrases up, using the same words for requests. I feel like God is bored. Shoot….I am bored. Then I just don’t want to say anything at all because I am tired of hearing myself talk.
Then I come across a passage like the one above.
It’s as if God is saying, “Oh yes, I hear where you are coming from. Is this what you are trying to say?”
It is an interesting feeling of knowing that I have been heard, but also having newly discovered words to express those feelings and emotions.
I love it!
This particular passage was actually shared by my team leader to help encourage all of us on the team, and he sent it at the perfect time. I read what he sent and then the rest of the passage. It spoke so well to where I was at the time, that I rewrote it to create the personal prayer above.
Have you ever done something like this? Is there a verse or passage you have made your own? Please share it in the comments! I would love to read it!
