awake one long night

from my journal march 8, 2009 at 3:00am

with a sigh goes my prayer, Holy Spirit interpret what you hear. Jesus Your blood covers all, please lift me up no matter how much i fall. i know You are doing some great work within me, to make me ever more like Thee. so before the burning alter i stand, willing to offer myself again and again. until the work You have started is complete and i lay everything always at Your feet. then Your blessings will all pour out and i will no longer be filled with doubt. on that day i will truly understand that i am always and forever in Your loving hands.
