I find myself searching for words to lay before Jesus as I go through life. Not because of my lack of vocabulary but because of the lack of direction. Where do I begin when the flood of sin that destroys the world around me screams for someone to turn it into a river. Yet that is exactly what Christ does in our lives. He takes the flood of sin and harnesses it into a river. When we don't have the words to bring before him he knows our hearts and allows us to just start speaking. Restless soul and all.
As Keith Berger shined a light on our lack of contentment yesterday it brought many of my sins to the surface of the flood. The floating debris of jealousy. The funneling currents of envy. Unmet goals and anxiety over the future swell out of my uncontent heart. Scotty Smith lays out a beautiful prayer for contenment that I hope you use this week as I have. Especially in light of the Thanksgiving season.
