What If I Hadn't Listened Devotional

by Marijo Phelps  
1/14/2010 / Devotionals

"Thou hast turned my mourning into dancing for me"
And given me cleared eyes with which to see
A clean heart which reaches out to You
Freedom, deliverance, joy and a life anew

I ponder what would have happened
If I'd turned and walked away
When you persistently knocked on my door
That now long ago day

And I thank You, oh, I thank you
That my heart You did pursue
That You dogged my every footstep
Till I turned and embraced You!

Psalm 30:11
Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness. (KJV)

Psalm 30:11
You have turned my mourning into dancing for me; You have put off my sackcloth and girded me with gladness. (Amplified)

Prayer: Dearest Jesus, I tried to ditch you and dodge you leave you far behind. Every time I turned around you were there reaching out and kind. Maybe it was through "coincidence" or a co-worker who had your heart. You touched and smiled and spoke to me trying to win my heart. I finally got a picture of the incredible "NEED" in me the need to call out to you and finally be set free. You met me at that point of need and turned my heart to You. And I cannot ever thank you enough for all you are and do. AMEN
