One by one we reluctantly set down our stuff, our marked up Bibles, scribbled notes, half filled cups. And one by one, we laid down our capes and our crowns. We don’t need them here. Not with this group. With this group we are no longer Super Woman. We are not Queen of this domain. No. We come as servants. We come eager for the Word. We come ready for change, for healing, for grace.
One by one, we sit down at the table, weary from the world.
One by one, we experience the prompting of the King.
One by one, the walls fall and the truth springs forth from our hearts through our lips.
One by one, in this group, we confess the hard things. The things we’ve been stuffing down. The things that haven’t yet been uttered even to our Heavenly Father.
One by one, the Father leads, the Spirit guides, and we, the servants, surrender, completing the Holy Circuit.
The power and might of the Spirit hovers and fills, covers and forgives.
One by one, we are finally able to breathe. Just in the confessing, the speaking aloud, we are finally able to breathe.
One by one, the scales blocking the truth fall away.
One by one, the chains break.
One by one, darkness is claimed and light takes its place.
One by one, we are released.
The confession, the true confession each of us speaks allows the Father’s plan to unfold in our hearts.
Thank you, God, for the power in confession. Thank you, God, for this Holy Circuit from You, through the Spirit, to your servants.
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14
