A Worshipful Heart

This morning started out with a teeneage tantrum from the boy, gruff words from Mr K, major traffic problems on the way to work, and a power outage once I got here.

And  I handled it all with perfect grace ....ummm...grumbling and complaining.

As I sat in traffic feeling sorry for myself I heard this prayer:

"Grant us, Lord, a worshipful heart."

That was part of Alistair Begg's opening to today's radio program.

It struck me. It grabbed me by the heart, shook me up, and brought me to my knees - figuratively, that is. I was driving after all.

God the Father, giver of all good things, gives us the opportunity and ability to worship Him. But until today I never realized that He actaully gives us the desire to worship Him as well. Our hearts, apart from God's saving grace, do not even desire to worship Him. And even once we have become a partaker in His grace, it's so easy to give in to grumbling and complaining and lose our heart of worship.

My prayer for all of us today:

"Grant us, Lord, a worshipful heart."

Your comments are such a blessing to me.

"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. " Hebrews 10:23-25
