The Father’s Heart

To have a heart that is aligned with Yours.  To see what You are doing and do likewise.  To care about the things that You care about.  That is my desire.

So easy to focus on trinkets, things of no eternal value.  But we are finite creatures, with finite time.  So quickly it flies away.  Take captive every thought for Christ, the Book says, and it is right.  For on what you focus, there will your heart be also.

Not to say there is not room for interests, for hobbies, and the suchlike, but the relentless round of entertainment, of the endless procession of worldly things, can distract, confuse, beguile and mislead.

Better to have a heart that is focused on the things of the Lord – on His things, not on our concept of what serving should be.  His yoke is easy, and His burden light.  Ours, often not so much.  How much we miss by refusing Him, even as we think we serve Him.

Lord Jesus, help us care about the things You care about.  Help us to be where you are also.  Amen.

    This is a most important issue. May we discard all things frivillous and look steadfastly to the Lord.

    Blessings always in Jesus name.
