I was having a “heart-to-heart” with the Lord this morning…

Sometimes it’s like I carry certain things in my heart for a little while,
and then I realize that I haven’t “poured it out”—that I haven’t shared it with my Heavenly Father yet…

(He already knows, but there is something to the “sharing” that cultivates relationship with Him.)

And so I share,

I open up.

And when I do…

it’s like this deep sense of refreshing comes over me, and within me.

This morning God reminded me of a few things that I needed reminding of.

And here is what filled my heart,

and now seems to be overflowing onto this page…

Search my heart, O God,

and show me any way in me

that is not pleasing to You.

Anything that I am believing,

that is not true…

“God, I invite your searching gaze into my heart.
    Examine me through and through;
    find out everything that may be hidden within me.
    Put me to the test and sift through all my anxious cares.
24 See if there is any path of pain I’m walking on,
    and lead me back to your glorious, everlasting way
   the path that brings me back to you.”—Psalm 139:23-24 TPT

Will You show me what I haven’t been able to see–what I’ve been unable to perceive?

And will You reveal what is true,

and that which You desire to do?

Anything that is hindering me

from be(coming) more like You?

“So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image.”—2 Corinthians 3:18

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”—2 Corinthians 5:17

Lord Jesus, thank You for taking me on this journey,

thank You for this LIFE…

that through YOU, by Your Spirit,

I may become,

as I am being transformed,

layer by layer, into

a beloved daughter

who is becoming

more and more like You.

Thank You, Father. 💝
