David’s Prayer-1 Chronicles 29:10-14
10 David praised the LORD in the presence of the whole assembly, saying,
“Praise be to you, O LORD,
God of our father Israel,
from everlasting to everlasting.
11 Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power
and the glory and the majesty and the splendor,
for everything in heaven and earth is yours.
Yours, O LORD, is the kingdom;
you are exalted as head over all.
12 Wealth and honor come from you;
you are the ruler of all things.
In your hands are strength and power
to exalt and give strength to all.
13 Now, our God, we give you thanks,
and praise your glorious name.
14 “But who am I…”
I am a strong woman
I am a pit dweller, looking up, reaching up, straining to grab hold of His mighty hand to lift me out
I am a pit dweller longing for what I’m leaving behind…constantly calculating the pros and cons of bringing a piece of my pit up and out with me
I am a mother of three amazing, funny, beautiful children who all know and love Jesus
I am a wife constantly tripping over my own selfishness, desperately trying to embrace my own selflessness
I am a musician, hiding behind my “busyness” to cover my fear of public performance
I am an artist, longing for the freedom of soul to express myself
I am a prayer warrior, an open canvas thirsty for the Word to paint the ever-changing landscape called my life
I am a Mary with a Martha heart, wondering if my “Maryness” is really a cover for laziness
I am desperate. Desperate to not be THAT girl…the one I hate, yet feverishly cling to
For all that David questioned, “But who am I…?”, He knew who David was. And David, by constantly looking up, reaching up, questioning, praising and yes…even by messing up, knew who he was, in Him.
Who am I? I am THIS Girl
I am His Girl
Praise Him, Praise Him
