Let praises rise from the inside of me
May You delight in the inside of me
Come fill my life from the inside of me
Set me on fire from the inside of me
Fill my life till all they see is You, Lord
Fill my heart till all they see is You, Lord
Glorify Your name
All I want Is for You to be glorified
For You to be lifted high
For most of the time we have a closed sign on the door to the inside of us. We may make the doorway available to our nearest and dearest, as those who live with us will have more access than most.
But there is always that back room ~ with the private sign ~ that no one else sees the inside of ~
Except God of course ~ nothing is hidden from Him.
This time last year I was angry on the inside. This year I am healing on the inside.
I was grieving on the inside, the swell of grief would rise like a wave and roll from deep inside as the reality of my brokenness crashed over my moments.
The words from our mouths can often contradict what is on the inside of us in an attempt to window dress our lives.
Emotional reactions and knee jerk responses or even our silence is the voice that reveals the inside of us.
Listen for the silence ~ They are a revelation from the inside of us.
The whisper of our soul ~ Listen ~ and you will hear your soul speak.
Its that room we call the spare room, where all the stuff goes ~ the buried and ignored stuff.
Every time the door opens to put more stuff in, from our consience we hear the siren in a noisy whisper ~ sound from the room ~
Sort me out ~ Clean me ~ Order my chaos ~ Throw me away …
How long will we ignore the inside of us?
Sadly many die with it all still on the inside ~ their life was robbed of a guilt and shame free soul.
Both my husband and I could have been that person. Had he never been exposed we could have died with all that stuff, toxic and decayed on the inside of us.
I cannot tell you how wonderfully healing and freeing it has been to open the door to everyone, to put right all the wrongs, to forgive and one day i won’t need to remind myself to choose to forget the pain and damage.
For my husband, he has his greatest opportunity to live the remainder of his life free from the lurking silent howl of Skeletor, the demon of his past.
In its place in that room i want to use the space to advise, help and serve others to listen to the voice on the inside of them…
