That's the best word I can think of to describe what's been going on in my heart within the past week and a half. Don't get me wrong; I'm very stubborn, selfish, independent and all those other 'human' things. But the journey of reformation is under way!
For the past three months I've been asking the Lord to do something miraculous in my heart. I've asked for the ability to pour out all the grace that He pours into me. I've asked for the strength to love in unlovely circumstances. I've asked for reminders that He works in all things for the good of those who love Him. I've asked for perspective, focusing on what I've gained rather than what I perceive I have lost. I've asked God to make a radical difference in my heart, one that only He is capable of.
I am so human... but there is reformation...
And it is a journey.
It begins with time spent in the Truth.
Then time spent in prayer.
Asking. Listening. Responding.
It is intentional, purposeful, constant.
And now I see glimpses of a difference, a difference in me, by Him!
As with any great journey, it will not end soon. Because the difference is not complete. I am so human.
I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you... Eph 1:18
"But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart..." Matthew 15:18
You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. Jer 29:13
