I've came across several things lately that speak about "search me, O God". My prayer for quite some time has been for HIM to empty me of me....and fill me up with more of HIM. How can I be an effective witness if I don't try to rid myself of everything that offends HIM? I have absolutely no right to point out the speck in some one's eye when I'm walking around with a 2 x 4 sticking out of mine!!!
But....be forewarned....if you ask HIM to shine His light in your heart and point out offensive stuff....He will do just that....and often....at least in my case....
....it sure ain't pretty!!!
Thank you, precious Lord, for putting up with me!!!
HOPE you have a great Tuesday, Sweet Reader!!!
In HIS Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!
I can't believe you have too much to get rid of.ReplyDelete
The lyrics to the song that I sing within is, LORD show me "me" that hinders me from being and doing all that you desire of my life. Tuesday Blessings to ya DebReplyDelete

He does do that... but ever so gently!ReplyDelete
so true. thanks for the reminder. hugs and blessings,ReplyDelete
It isn't pretty. Right now he is revealing some jealousy and bitterness and that is hard. But, I am so thankful he does reveal it so we can get our hearts pure before him. I love this verse.ReplyDelete
Deb - I have been praying that He will fill me (and in order to do that He has to empty me of myself).ReplyDelete
And you are right, sometimes it just isn't pretty.
