The Lowest Place

One of my favorite prayers is "Take me to the lowest place."  Sometimes, I say "Hail Mary, Full of Grace, Take me to the lowest place" because I like to bring Mary into it and it rhymes.
It puts things in the right perspective for me in many areas of life.  When I don't get my own way, when I need to put others' first, when I'd like to be exhalted.
Being an extravert, going to the lowest place means not being where the real party is.  Missing out.  But when the Lover is at the party, I want to be with Him, wherever that is.  Amazingly, Jesus asks us to go to the lowest place and when we do, He's already there waiting. How great is our God!
