God, teach me lessons for living
so I can stay the course.
Give me insight so I can do what you tell me—
my whole life one long, obedient response.
Guide me down the road of your commandments;
I love traveling this freeway!
Psalm 119: 33-35 Message
Do you remember Cliff Notes? I may or may not have been known to pick a few of these summary books up in college prior to a test- especially when I didn’t feel thoroughly prepared.
Sometimes, I show up to the Lord’s classroom and I am am not at all prepared to be there. My thoughts and heart feel scattered and distracted. But, thankfully, God never lowers my grade. In fact, He already took the test for me. And He aced it! And then I remember, I am never “prepared” to be in the Lord’s presence. It’s only because of who He is that it is even possible.
Sometimes, Professor God, is just asking me to humbly show up. When I do, He does the rest. Every. Single. Time.
