Father, as you have been helping me to build more hope and joy within my soul, I realize that there have been many times in the past when parts of me have resisted receiving deeply the love, hope, joy and peace that you want to grant me. Why would I defend myself from my Defender? Why would I shield myself from my Shield? It all seems so odd and even silly to me. It can only be those residual forces in me of stubborn independence...my inferior and proud desire to make my life work on my own instead of simply trusting you as a child. It is rooted in my fear and doubt that you will somehow abandon me when the heat is on. Forgive me Immanuel and continue to draw me into a greater and firm trust that you are more "for" me than I can ever imagine. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
