I don’t have the energy to journal tonight. After too few hours of sleep last night and a long day of intense introspection, I am physically and mentally spent. Maybe that’s the very reason I had such a profound encounter with You today, Abba. I was too tired to have my guard up, so I could keep you at a “safe” distance.
Not that I need to guard myself against You, Lord. The opposite is true! And yet, as close as You and I have become, I still keep you at a distance… don’t I? Because there is still a deeper level of healing I need. Healing that only You can give me.
Treasures, like nuggets of gold, were surfacing throughout the day. Treasures that have everything to do with Your divine revelation about core beliefs that still hinder me. I have only just picked those nuggets up. I haven’t yet put them together and inspected them in the glow of Your Revealing Light. I can hardly wait…
… because I know with all my heart that You have brought me to the threshold of a new season. A priceless season of radical transformation. If only I could spend hours with You, Abba… soaking in Your Presence, so You could take me deeper. Deeper so You could take me higher…
I must, Lord. I will, Lord. But for now… I must sleep.
“May all who seek You rejoice and be glad in You; may those who long for Your saving help always say, ‘The Lord is great!'” (Psalm 40:16)
