I started a new YouVersion reading plan this morning that will have me focused on prayer specifically for the month of January with Scripture as well as devotional content from Oswald Chambers. Consider yourself warned. Embedded in the image above (a photo I took on Harvester Island [Kodiak, Alaska] this past summer and then manipulated with an app I have on my phone called Prisma) is one of the application questions from the devotional. I’d like to rename them meddling-in-my-business questions.
Today I am asking the Holy Spirit to catch me when I start laying out my plans and argument for why something needs to go a certain way, as if I’m a courtroom attorney (ha) and God is the jury. And once caught, I want my response to be different. I hope to develop a habit of taking a breath and then asking, “What do you want me to see and understand in this situation that I’m missing? Give me your eyes, as much as I can take, and the courage to see beyond myself.”
