May I Show You

I saw this prayer written by Kelley Renz in The Family Digest publication (Vol. 65, No. 4, page 3).

August 9

May I show You I love You today, O Lord.

May I use my body to show You love: May all I do today give You glory. May all I do be surrounded by Your grace so I can give without hesitation, so I can act without second thought, so I can obey Your Spirit’s prompting.

May I use my voice to show You Love: May I speak without complaint, and only look to build up, to comfort, to encourage. May I remember to pray.

May I use my mind to show You love: May I keep my thoughts focused on You. May I resist the tendency to see the negative, to doubt, to take back my trust in Your control over all things in my life. May I not seek the approval of any person, but only focus on pleasing You.

May I use my heart to show You love: May I allow my heart to give way to You, despite the wounds that still inflict sorrow, second-guessing, fear, and shame. May I be able to wade through these and show You just a mite-amount of the love You have shown me.

O Lord, even as I pray these words, I can sense the fear, the holding back, the accusations to not be stupid, foolish, to not allow myself to be used. I know, Lord, I know. But I do not really know … do I?

Help me to trust enough to let go to You … totally. I am not there yet. But, today, perhaps, I can take one more step.

August 9

I hope you have a weekend full of blessings.
