The weeds of sin grow up in my heart–it’s a constant battle, cutting them out. They always return as all weeds do–oh, how, I wish they wouldn’t but over and over they grow back.
A judgmental heart, a critical spirit, and words spoken that are best unsaid. I hear the Spirit whisper softly, “Weeds need to be cut.” The flesh has once again given ground to the weeds of sin.
I just want to show love to the broken and hurting souls of this world–no strings, no conditions, I want to shine the Lord’s light on hopeless hearts, and be the hands and feet of Christ, but the seeds of judgment begin to take root and I feel frustrated at my inability to control my flesh. But all is not lost because the LORD looks at the heart and He knows my desire.
…For the LORD does not see as man sees; man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7.
God is a God of second chances, always willing to forgive anyone who repents and turns from sin.
In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace Ephesians 1:7.
