another's note mentions that vultures only come when something is dead. vultures do not hunt. they don't even attack the sick or injured like wolves or coyotes. no, they feed on the dead.
what is dead in my life that keeps attracting the vultures? it is incredible to me to think how quickly the painful emotions and fear and drama come at once when I forget how to worship, when I forget to praise. maybe that's really all this last month has been: the vultures taking advantage of my brokenness and me taking way too long to realize my distance from God. How do I identify the death and let Him cleanse me again?
Or what am I keeping alive that needs to die and be destroyed so I can find You again?
Lord, help me begin today to listen for Your voice again, to see Your work in this world and in my life. Please grant me the strength to turn away from any other masters that are ruling my life right now. Help me to see them and reject them daily so I learn to follow You again. Help me to build my life around You instead of fitting You into my life. Help me to earn the name "servant" again. Jesus, You are my only hope.
