Lay Down Your Desires

"Lord, all my desire is before You; And my sighing is not hidden from You." Psalm 38:9 (NASB) 

This simple verse holds a lot of punch.  For me, I love knowing that the Lord sees all my desires, that my sighs and tears are not hidden from Him.  In my most broken of moments, I imagine myself going up to the throne room, thankful that I am able to approach a perfect Savior.  I walk in so tired, weary, and broken that I cannot even make it to His feet.  I collapse at the door; I envision Jesus standing up from His throne to come over to meet me right where I am.  He then picks me up in His arms and carries me over to allow me to be on His lap while He sits at the right hand of the Father.  Sometimes, that picture is all I need.  When I cannot go any further, He meets me where I am, well aware of my desires and sighs, and holds me so close while He fights for me. (Exodus 14:14)
