    LOOK DEEPLY IN MY HEART LORD SO I CAN WORSHIP AND BE MORE IN YOU. REMOVE MY FLESH SO THERE WILL BE NO MORE OF ME. LOOK DEEPLY IN MY HEART AND CHANGE ME MORE IN YOUR IMAGE.

God has truly bless me, but the enemy has being putting things in my way for the last three weeks, but I know that there is no problem that God cannot solve, and I can do all things through Christ Jesus that strength me. THANK YOU FOR THE PRAY AND GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

    Thank you for reminding me that God looks at the heart.

    Father God, make my heart your resting place where you will find
    brokenness & a contrite heart. A broken vessel to be used by you for your glory.

    Hi!

    I have found these words to be just beautiful and absolutely true. We need to be more like God in every way. The readings are so wonderful. I ask God to please give me a clean heart and renew his righteous spirit in me. Let me give God everything! My mind, heart, and soul!
