Walk with me, Lord
into the deep
of my soul –
I want to see
under the surface
of my life.
Take my hand
I need your light
to find my way
through this ache
into the infinite field
I need your presence
Mark 4 21-25
He said to them, “Do you bring in a lamp to put it under a bowl or a bed? Instead, don’t you put it on its stand? For whatever is hidden is meant to be disclosed, and whatever is concealed is meant to be brought out into the open. If anyone has ears to hear, let them hear.” “Consider carefully what you hear,” he continued. “With the measure you use, it will be measured to you—and even more. Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them.”
What is hiding under the surface of your life?
It’s amazing how we can have faith, yet not believe at the same time. It has been a long time since Jesus walked the earth. It’s much easier for us to internalize belief systems based on what we have experienced and see happening around us than it is to intentionally make room for a miraculous, ever-present Lord in our lives like the disciples did all those years ago before they themselves were commissioned to perform miracles by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Even when we have faith in God and Jesus on one level, we often subconsciously we also have limiting beliefs rooted in trauma and societal programming, which prevent us from truly embracing the awe inspiring ability God has to completely transform our lives from the inside out.
If you have a painful, stuck or frustrating part of life (like the rest of us;) – I encourage you to resist the temptation to ignore it and push it under the surface! Instead, bravely invite the miraculous Lord into it through prayer and contemplation. As you pray for the gift of faith and invite the Lord into those stuck places, He’ll bring that transformative light of consciousness into it, and miraculous change will begin to occur. It isn’t always comfortable to see what’s hiding under the surface of our lives, but it’s the only way to truly heal. It’s impossible to ask too much of the Lord! Expect miracles, and persevere in your relationship with the Lord interiorly- there is nothing more valuable on this earth.
What area of life are you in need of a miraculous transformation? Finances? Relationships? Health? Comment below, and I will keep you in my prayers!
Lord, I believe you rose from the dead and conquered sin and death. Thank you for all the ways you are present to me in every aspect of my life. I invite your resurrection power into my frail brokenness, doubts, heartache, regrets, confusion, doubts, fears and trauma. Shine the glorious truth of your light into areas of my heart and soul, which are muddied with ways of thinking, which are not reflective of Your glory. Heal my unbelief, and spark miraculous change in my life that richly blesses Your people and glorifies Your name. In Jesus name, Amen.
