This speaks to me. Maybe, it will speak to you too. While having a music therapy session (a quite good one at that), these words… they just jumped out at me. We can be so consumed with what we are not. Suffering from multiple medical problems, that are chronic illnesses that can rear their ugly symptoms at any time, it can be so easy to be caught up and reminded of every single thing that I am not. Reaching such a point of readiness is, I think it’s a process to be honest. I think, it’s a different process for each of us – as we all are in different life situations.
For me, it’s a process of laying down at the Cross everything that I am reminded I am not. It is choose to pick up all that I am, things…characteristics that I had once abandoned or was ungrateful for.
I’ve been such a mess/ But now I can’t care less/ I could bleed to death
You called my name/ I turned away/ But now I/ Am listening
I was so caught up/ In who I’m not/ Can you please forgive me?
Lord, make me ready to be who You created me to be. Help me to brightly shine where You have planted me. I ask this in the name that holds great power – the name of Jesus, Amen.
