Shepherd Of My Heart

Thoughts from Angie, our Partner Missionary in Guyana, South America:
 
This week I begin two master’s courses that will put me in a classroom for six hours a week for the next month.  The courses are focused on missions and being taught by a life-time missionary and seasoned professor.  As I have immersed myself in the pre-course reading I have found myself tremendously encouraged by the work of Gospel For Asia founder K.P Yohannan.  I have scribbles all over the margins of this book!! [Revolution in World Missions]
Strangely enough as I read about his life I find myself personally wrapped up in some of his words, as if they were my own.  So, this afternoon I came in from reading and decided it was time to take action on some of those words by writing some words of my own.   When I was finished I asked myself, “Ang why did you take the time to write this when you could have just spoken it to God?” What I knew is I needed to write this prayer so I could keep it as a prayer and a few Biblical declarations to speak into my life for this specific season.  Surprising me along this time with the Lord was a song I started humming from a time when I first a believer.  I could not believe it, but I actually paused and allowed the song to bubble up, amazed that I still remembered the words.
“Maker of this heart of mine, you know me very well
You understand my deepest thought, more than I know myself
So when I face the darkness, when I need to find my way
I trust in you, shepherd of my heart”
