Daily Devotional

From your Pastor;

     I don’t really worship these days, I don’t really stand up to praise You with songs or prayers or actions.  
     I am full of the right moves, the right words, the right religion, but it is all an illusion. I am really lonely, lost, calloused, and cynical. I’m too religious, 
too realistic, and well... really just too lazy to worship anymore. 
     I’ve lost my first love, I have lost the joy of Your presence, but most of all I have lost the fear of Your glory. 
      Father I need to see You again. Like Isaiah,
 I want to stand in awe of Your glory. to fall down at Your feet. I want to stand before You and see You for who You are and me for who I am. 
                         I want to be undone.
     I want to see the depths of my heart, I want to know what it must have taken for You to love me, 
care for me, see me, speak to me, want me. 
To die for me!
      Lord, I want to stand in the place where I can see Your glory. Because in that place I can’t help but worship You. Lord, let me come undone, Lord, undo my heart. Break down these walls that I love so much.
No! wait don’t.  I’m scared I don’t know if I can handle this... don’t... but I can’t live like this anymore. I can’t stand here in this half-life, this going thru the motions life. This is not really life at all. Father I need You...
so come and do what You must, cut out the deceit in my heart, break down the walls that I love. 
      Lord let be come undone. Undo my heart, let me worship You again.

  Create in me a clean heart, O God. And renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me away from Your presence. And do not take Your holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation...
