YOUR HEART RULES – PART 5
Blessed are the pure in heart,
For they shall see God.
INTEGRITY IS A HEART ISSUE
Some days I cry out to God in desperation seeking His help.
I STRUGGLE WITH MY THOUGHTS
Some days I am shocked at the thoughts that randomly enter my mind. I don’t know where they come from – but they sure awaken me to my earthiness.
I STRUGGLE WITH THE INTENTS OF MY HEART.
There are other times when I want to do things I clearly know are not pleasing to God.
Like getting even with someone or not forgiving.
My heart knows what it wants and intends to get it.
I STRUGGLE WITH THE WORD OF GOD
My delight is in the word of God and I spend a lot of time in it.
Yet some days it is like dry dust and very difficult to swallow.
I STRUGGLE WITH THE PRESENCE OF GOD.
I never struggle in the presence of God – but I sure do struggle getting there some days.
In His presence is fulness of joy – but getting into it can be quite painful to my distracted heart and mind.
I STRUGGLE WITH DOING WHAT IS RIGHT
The things I know to do – I do not – and the things I know not to do – I end up doing.
MY DELIVERANCE IS IN CHRIST
O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death?
I thank God – I am delivered – through Jesus Christ our Lord!
