Psalm 120:1-In my distress I cried unto the Lord, and He heard me. (KJV)
Psalm 17:6-I call on You, God because You will answer me; listen closely to
me; hear what I say. (HCSB)
I am having so much fun today, Lord, sipping my coffee and coloring with my granddaughter. I don’t even know who the characters in this coloring book are supposed to be! I’m just using crayons that I think are pretty. Now she wants me to help her draw. I say to her “I’m not good at drawing.” Her reply is, “That’s okay. I am. You can help me think of what to do.” I am struck at how much You say that to me! I say “Lord, I’m not strong enough to do this.” And You say “That’s okay. I am.” I say “Lord, I can’t be there to help with that situation.” And You say, “That’s okay. I am.” I say “Lord, I’m not able to provide what they need.” And You say, “That’s okay. I am.” You don’t need me to help You think of what to do, but You allow me to come to You with my thoughts and wishes and wants. Sometimes I know I try to help You too much. Like with the coloring book, I don’t know all the facts of the characters involved so I just color it all with what I think are pretty colors. Then I turn to You and say “I’m not able to fix this. And You say “That’s okay. I am.” One day I came to You and said “I can’t pay for my sins.” And You said “That’s okay. I already did.” Thank You, Jesus.
