When He's lifted High

When I exalt Jesus in any part of my life, 
I give Him a place to rule—there—in that particular area.

 When I lift Him up in that place, He has free reign to do whatever He wants there.

 And, since He’s always good, and only has good for me, I can trust Him to bring about His very best for me there.


So LORD, may I exalt You, especially in—

  • the tender places, 

  • the broken places, 

  • the waiting places.


For those are the places that I most need Your wisdom and direction to rule my life.
Those are the places that I don’t understand why things are happening the way they are… 
or why things are not happeningthe way I think they should…

 LORD, I lift You high and exalt You here—

  • in my longings, 

  •  in my pain,

  • in my places of hope deferred. 


~ Come in and rule here. 
~ Come and bring Your alignment, order, and goodness to these areas of my life
that need You to be exalted in them.
