Catch Me Up In Your Story

Catch Me Up In Your Story

The bridge to a staple worship song in the prayer movement goes like this: 

Catch me up in your story
All my life for your glory
Put me anywhere, just put your glory in me
I'll serve anywhere, just let me see your beauty

You would assume by now I would have learned to think twice before praying such prayers. These prayers should at least come with a warning label: "Be warned; praying this may mess up your best laid plans." I have prayed dangerous prayers like that before. "Lord, if you want me to serve you full-time, you have to interrupt my life and show me." "Lord, let me be part of ushering in revival into my nation."

And then when you least expect it, God adds his "Yes" to our "Amen"; he catches us up in the present continuous tense story he is writing in the nations. And we hold on - or maybe we let go - for dear life.

All my bags are packed

Jesus is preparing a place for us, His Bride. All of Scripture, all of history points to the moment when the Spirit and the Bride will say, “Come”, to the marriage of the Lamb when the Bride has made herself ready. But in the waiting, what do we do? How does the betrothed get prepared for the return of her Bridegroom?
