Good Friday Reflections

Dear God,

How can my heart be perfect toward You...? On my own I am nothing. Useless. Empty. Zero. Only through You am I complete and made whole. Please direct and guide my steps, Father.

My reflection for today, Good Friday, tells me You are watching. You know and see the numerous times that I sin and when I cover it most of the time. But here at home, in front of DS and DD -- these are some of my worst times. And it makes me sad and so disappointed with myself when I don't set a good example for them.

Lord, please make my heart perfect. I know I am still a long way from it, but take my hand, hold it, and give me strength. Be strong for me when I don't measure up -- which is most of the time -- I know that the only way to achieve my goal is through You alone, so please don't take Your eyes away from me... More than anywhere else, I want and need a heart from you in my home. Thank You, Father.

For the eyes of the LORD
range throughout the earth
to strengthen those
whose hearts are
fully committed to him.
You have done a foolish thing,
and from now on you will be at war.
2 Chronicles 16:9
