Meeting Place

“Altars are a memorial to the place where God meets us.  Altars represent the occasion and place where we have had a personal encounter with God.  We may not always be able to make a physical altar, but there can be one established in our hearts.” 1

Deep call to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me.  By day the LORD directs his love, at night his song is with me—a prayer to the God of my life.  I say to God my Rock, “Why have you forgotten me?  Why must I go about mourning, oppressed by the enemy?”2

Send forth your light and your truth, let them guide me; let them bring me to your holy mountain, to the place where you dwell.  Then will I go to the altar of God, to God, my joy and my delight.  I will praise you with the harp, O God, my God.3

 

My Prayer: Lord, even in my brokenness my flesh resists your call to die to self.  I want to be transformed, please give me the grace and will to lay my life down.  Let my heart and lips proclaim, “not my will but thine be done”.  Please help me in my time of need, I’m not worthy, help me because of who you are.  I willing lay down on the alter; please meet me here.  Amen.
