career, Getting out of my shell

Redemption Needed

Today, as I meditated on Psalm 25, I felt God reveal certain things to me, and humble me.

UNTO YOU, O Lord, do I bring my life;. O my God, I trust, lean on, rely on, and am confident in You.
Let me not be put to shame or [my hope in You] be disappointed; let not my enemies triumph over me.
Yes, let none who trust and wait hopefully and look for You be put to shame or be disappointed; let them be ashamed who forsake the right or deal treacherously without cause.
Show me Your ways, O Lord; teach me Your paths.
Guide me in Your truth and faithfulness and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; for You [You only and altogether] do I wait [expectantly] all the day long.

Remember, O Lord, Your tender mercy and loving-kindness; for they have been ever from of old.
Remember not the sins (the lapses and frailties) of my youth or my transgressions; according to Your mercy and steadfast love remember me, for Your goodness’ sake, O Lord.

Good and upright is the Lord; therefore will He instruct sinners in [His] way.
He leads the humble in what is right, and the humble He teaches His way.
All the paths of the Lord are mercy and steadfast love, even truth and faithfulness are they for those who keep His covenant and His testimonies.
For Your name’s sake, O Lord, pardon my iniquity and my guilt, for [they are] great. Who is the man who reverently fears and worships the Lord?
Him shall He teach in the way that he should choose. He himself shall dwell at ease, and his offspring shall inherit the land.
The secret [of the sweet, satisfying companionship] of the Lord have they who fear (revere and worship) Him, and He will show them His covenant and reveal to them its [deep, inner] meaning. [John 7:17; 15:15.]
My eyes are ever toward the Lord, for He will pluck my feet out of the net. [Lord] turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted.
The troubles of my heart are multiplied; bring me out of my distresses.
Behold my affliction and my pain and forgive all my sins [of thinking and doing].

Consider my enemies, for they abound; they hate me with cruel hatred.
O keep me, Lord, and deliver me; let me not be ashamed or disappointed, for my trust and my refuge are in You.
Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, for I wait for and expect You.
Redeem Israel, O God, out of all their troubles.

Abba, I feel like I made a mistake in last year’s decision, inspite of which You were good enough to make things work for the good. A year down the line, however, I’m reaping the consequences of that choice. Lord, I just ask for more grace from You…for Your mercy. Nahihiya po ako sa husband ko because he will also be affected by the repercussions of my error and selfish ambition. Abba, forgive me for not listening to Your Holy Spirit that time. I now realize that the Holy Spirit was prompting me to move towards one of the either directions. Forgive for leaning on my understanding. I repent, Lord. I’m just so sorry. I humble myself down at Your feet. Please have mercy on me. Is it too late, Lord? Thank You for the wake up call (so thank You even for my boss). Please make a way in the wilderness. I realize that this too has delayed the timing of the other concern (baby)…and  for me to here I am starting to get dismayed with You for it, when all the while, You may have been just gently waiting for me to realize this. Forgive me, Lord.

Lord Jesus, nahihiya po ako sa Inyo, but wala po akong ibang lalapitan. I really don’t know what to do. Please rescue me out of this pit that I dug for myself. Thank You, Lord, that You are just so merciful. I know that You are even bigger than my mistakes. I just trust in You, Lord. Please save me, Jesus.

Lord, I just saw this photo in FB. I believe that this is what you want to tell me. Yes, Lord, I shall focus on the possibilities in You. I wait on You, Lord. Thank You. I know that something happens when I call You.
