Search Me, O Lord!


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!!!

  7. 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.

  8. Deb - I have been praying that He will fill me (and in order to do that He has to empty me of myself).

    And you are right, sometimes it just isn't pretty.

    Thank you for joining us at the Grace Cafe today!

    Blessings,
