Changed & Prayed For

As I went to change C's diaper today after Titus2, this is what I saw...


I see this sticker every week but today my first thought was "me too!"  Today this sticker touched me in a different way. Today we were invited to spend some time in prayer. We were invited to pray for ourselves. To pray for the Holy Spirit to fill us and guide us. To pray the Lord would show us areas in our lives that needed to be transformed.  Our speaker suggested we use this beautiful verse from Psalm...

Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. Psalm 139:23-24

It struck me that I have been trudging through  a few situations on my own. I had not brought them before the Lord and sought His will but was leaning on my own understanding. I am thankful for God's patience with me. It was so completely freeing to lay those things at the cross this morning.  I was invited to pray for myself  and I was changed! I invite you to do the same.
