Everything in the spiritual life centers on the grace-movements of God’s Word made flesh in Christ, our Rock, the One whose name is honey-sweet! Our part in the spiritual life is to trust the Lord in all things with all of our self.

Psalm 81 helps us to open our hands, ears, and mouth to the Lord in prayer – literally! It helps us to engage our minds and hearts with Christ if we put our body into our praying. Try it now. Just a few minutes of abiding prayer from your heart could change the course of your whole day!

Open Up to Christ

Open your hands and trust me

I will remove your burdens

Yes, Jesus… I embrace you

~

Open your ears and listen to me

I will guide you with my Word

Yes, Jesus… I obey your teaching

~

Open your mouth wide and I will fill it

I will satisfy you with honey from the Rock

Yes, Jesus… I savor your sweet name

Praying the Psalms with Jesus is at the center of my school of discipleship. All day long it helps me to be with Jesus in order to become like him.

You Can Live in Jesus’ Easy Yoke is my new book that can help to facilitate authentic spiritual conversation for you and a friend or your small group.
