Well, it's about time, isn't it? :-D
It's Holy Wednesday and I've been praying all through Lent for God to change my heart. Maybe I'm just not asking properly...or maybe I need to be more open to having my heart changed. Perhaps what I need to ask for is a softer, more pliable heart, that God might be more *able* to change it, to work in me. :-/
Soften my heart, O God. Open my mind, O Lord. Make me an instrument of your will. Loosen the fists of my heart and my will, that I would be an open receptacle of your grace, your wisdom, your moving and being. Live in me, O God. Make your home in my heart, that I might live and move and have my being in you. Make me more grace filled, more willing to serve, wiser in my leading and faithful in my following.
Change my heart, O God. Change my heart, I pray. Make me more like you each day. Work in me and through me that others might see you in me. With all my heart I pray. May it be so. Amen.
I'm a wife, mom, pastor, human...probably not in that order. I struggle each day to be faithful to God, to my family and to my call as a Christian and all of those previously-mentioned roles. I pray to be positive, kind and thoughtful, but tend to fall short on all counts. I am inspired by sunrises and enjoy taking pictures (mostly my kids, deer in the yard and sunrises). I waste time playing stupid computer games and wishing I'd been better at all of the aforementioned roles. ;-)
