My Lord, soften the blows to my heart as the enemy assaults me with lies. Remind me in ways unfathomable that I am Your cherished one. Turn me back to You, Jesus, so that I am able to find the rest my soul craves. Quiet the chaotic chatter of my heart. Calm the storm of emotions that swirl within me. While I wait, let me not be afraid because I hope in the day when I can dwell in the fullness of love. Until I get where I belong, Lord God, love my heart true. May the wind of Your Spirit carry all my doubt away. May the abiding nearness of undying love root me in perpetual truth. Jesus, I whisper Your name in tender trust. I savor Your salvation. I feast upon the richness of Your joy. I am satisfied beneath the canopy of Your peace. Under the mighty Word You have laid down as a cornerstone in Isaiah 30:15 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I humbly pray with a heart devoted to the One I serve.
This is what the Sovereign Lord,
the Holy One of Israel, says:
“Only in returning to Me
and resting in Me will you be saved.
In quietness and confidence is your strength.
But you would have none of it.”
Isaiah 30:15, NLT
