“Therefore let your lives prove your change of heart”
MATTHEW 3:8 (Weymouth New Testament)
I belong to Him. Deep within me, I know that’s true. But I can’t seem to live that life that just shouts this to the rooftops… what is wrong with me?
I need to think big, yes. But, Lord, let me start small. One day at a time. One breath, one heart, one gesture of love at a time. This is all I can do right now, Lord.
See, Lord? I’m disciplining my thoughts now. I am choosing what to listen to, who to listen to. I am choosing what and who influences how I feel. I’ve turned to You, Lord. This counts, doesn’t it?
See, Lord? I used to blow up when this happens. I’m taking the time to pause and think now. That’s a step in the right decision, isn’t it, Lord?
See, Lord? I haven’t thought of that secret sin for a whole hour now. And I feel like I’m about to go crazy! Help me, Lord! I need Your help! Let my mind not slip. Let my heart not hesitate. Let my hands stay resolved. Let my feet stay firm on You – You are my only hope!
See, Lord? I am Yours. There is no uncertainty in my mind. There is no doubt in my heart. Let my thoughts reflect this. Let my words prove this. Let my decisions… my every act testify this.
My hands are clasped, Lord. My every breath is a prayer. When anyone asks, let me able to answer them without fear or shame –
“I am His.”
