Burn In Me // Thoughts

How I long to be broken. 
How I want to be near you. 
How my heart skips beats when 
Your love accepts me as I am

Come burn in me

- “Burn In Me” by The Glorious Unseen

—————————————————


God’s love accepts you just as you are—with your junk, your mistakes, your lies, your defiance, your pride, etc. Knowing that kind of love from the Father is what will really bring change in your life. It is amazing that His love that ultimately comes to us when we are covered in junk is exactly what will drive the change that takes place in our lives. When Jesus’ Truth is expressed in His love that reaches out to the undeserving, the undeserving follow Him.

We should long to be near Him. We should long to be broken so that He can restore us in His image. Anything lesser than that which glorifies Jesus is worthless. Give it all up to follow Him because He is worthy. 

Allow Him to come burn in your life, & He promises to come and to begin to change you. He is constant, and He longs to restore the hearts and minds of those who really seek Him. His path is good, and He will work in your life in crazy ways beyond anything you could even try to expect. 

God, come burn in us. Remove everything that gets in the way of You restoring us as Your sons and daughters. We give You total control, full reign. I want to be near You. I want to be broken, so that I can be remade. You are making me new, and I praise You for that. Thank You for loving and accepting me when I am undeserving. Your love is steadfast and Your faithfulness is unwavering.

Prayer of St. Patrick

Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me,
Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ on my right, Christ on my left,
Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down, Christ when I arise,
Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me. 

// Pray through this in your time with God today. Christ in every part of your life. \

God gives you Christ as the foundation of your marriage. “Welcome one another, therefore, as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God” (Rom. 15:7)… . Don’t insist on your rights, don’t blame each other, don’t judge or condemn each other, don’t find fault with each other, but accept each other as you are, and forgive each other every day from the bottom of your hearts.

—Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Letters and Papers from Prison, 31–32

Wash yourselves, clean up your lives; remove every speck of evil in what you do before Me. Put an end to all your evil. Learn to do good; commit yourselves to seeking justice.

—Isaiah 1:16-17a

Insights on Scripture

"If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you." John 15:7

When we are abiding in Christ and letting His words guide our life, what we ask for will ultimately be His desires for His Kingdom. How ready must Jesus be to answer prayers that we offer up for the things that He has given us to do? 

Read Scripture today, and pray according to the heart of Jesus. Don’t worry so much about your own desires, but seek His Kingdom first. He is ready and willing to move in huge ways when those huge ways advance His Gospel.

If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.

—Jesus. John 15:7.

And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes and be careful to obey my rules… You shall be my people, and I will be your God.

—Ezekiel 36:26-28
