“You will show me the path of life: In Your presence is fullness of joy; At your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” – Psalm 16:11 NLT
God, help me slow down my mind and drink you in. You are the One Who holds me in Your heart. With Your gentle hand, You draw me in tenderly and wrap me in Your presence. Even with Netlix on in the other room, I have got to come away with You… I’ve got to have this time just where it’s just us. For a little while.
Lord, Show me the path of life. Show me those things that bring life to my days. Show me those attitudes that suck the life out of my days, and by Your grace bring refreshing and change. Show me Your ways and how I can lean into You in the everyday.
In Your presence is fullness of joy! My joy is full when I recognize that I’m with You. Help me to be ever sensitive to Your nearness. Help me not forget that You are there, and I can enjoy You any time of the day! You are the fount of life and joy forevermore. God, speak to all us moms who are surrounded by kids and chores and other responsibilities that may be weighing us down — remind us that You are there with us when we’re in the midst of cooking, wiping noses, tucking in for bed, and cleaning. You are there delighting in us through it all!
At Your right hand sits Jesus, Who is the source of all wisdom and pleasure. I thank you that You have pleasures just waiting for me to join in! The fun of the Kingdom. So many people don’t realize You are there just waiting to be enjoyed, and that You actually delight in us! You actually LOVE it when we are enjoying you. Open the eyes of Your bride to the pleasure that is waiting just for them!
