make me an angel

O God, who teaches us that you abide in hearts that are just and true,
grant, that I may be so fashioned by your grace
as to become a dwelling pleasing to you.
Tuesday I wasn't feeling well so I took the day off.
By afternoon my tummy began to feel a bit more settled
so I did some much needed housekeeping.
When, at dusk, I sat down to my devotions
I read this collect.
And Mark, where Jesus says to his disciples,
"Are your hearts hardened?
Do you still not understand?"
soften my heart with your grace
open my mind to your understanding
It is not any fun to feel under the weather, glad you got to feeling better! Indeed may HIS grace grow in us so that we become more like HIM!ReplyDelete
I hope you are all better now! Yes, it seems god will harden the hearts of some who he knows will never turn to Him. Your prayers are art, like your writing.ReplyDelete
I hope today finds you more settled and resting, Kara ...ReplyDelete
