Hmmm … What’s going on in my heart? The other night I was praying with a group of guys. I was praying out loud for friends when I just started to cry. Real tears. I was literally crying out to God for them.
I’ve been praying simply lately. “Lord, make me more like Jesus. God give me your heart.”
I think He’s answering my prayer because weird things are happening. I read hopeless and angry Facebook statuses and find myself praying and yearning for my friends to grow in their faith. I find myself thinking, “if only they knew how Jesus really loves them. If only I could do something to help them see.”
My stuff has become just stuff. My wife and I aren’t bothered or worried about our possessions nearly as much as we used to be. We are both saying, “What can we give?” more quickly now.
The crisis mindset that some in my circle live in, is not mine. I truly believe that God is in control and that nothing takes Him by surprise. Chicken Little is running around like always singing his familiar tune. I’m just not buying it anymore.
God, give me your heart.
