The roots of my heart


Create a clean heart for me, God: put a new, faithful spirit deep inside me! ~Psalm 51:10 (CEB)

We all have a pull towards God, though we might not fully understand where saying yes to God will take us.

God takes root in our heart with our yeses, and one age ends while another begins. With every “yes” we say, the Holy Spirit overshadows us and something new is birthed in us.

Our roots are intertwined with the faith stories found in the Bible. Reading these stories feed our faith to stretch and grow towards futures we never could imagine. Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba, Elizabeth, and Mary all disrupted the air around them. As heirs to their faithfulness, we are called to do the same when we answer yes. Even though we may not fully comprehend what our “yes” may mean, with a faith that surpasses our knowledge and trusting God with our very lives, we to can boldly say, “Here I am.”

Lord, I do not know what my “yes” will bring. I don’t know where it takes me, but I do know I rather travel to the unknown with you than to remain in safety alone. Bolster me to do Your will in all I say and do this day. Amen.
