The Beatitudes come to life 


I was in the presence of spiritual and emotional poverty this week.

During that sacred hour in my office, I was overwhelmed by the Spirit of God. It was one of those moments that so blesses my heart as a Christian Counselor. The individual before me felt vulnerable and weak, yet understood and cared for. 

Together we were able to bring her sin and doubt to His throne of mercy, leaving it at the altar and doing our best to receive the forgiveness and the grace He so freely gives. 

I walked away from that hour contemplating my own discomfort with feeling weak or needy…and my ignorance in thinking that I am ok on my own. 

Father, this morning I recognize yet again my great need for You. Please forgive me for walking ahead or behind you. Help me to remain, help me to abide.

Amen.
