Finding Your Creative Bones® 365-Day Devotional © 2023
Our goal; recognize and remove shadows over your life.
What types of thoughts fill your mind and heart? Where do they lead you? Be aware that they could result in unfaithful actions. Unfaithful actions and thoughts become shadows over your life. Resulting in a breach of our faith.
Have you allowed yourself to become a shadow believer who is half just and half false in thought or act?
Jesus found himself with his disciples.
"And he said to them, Have even you so little wisdom? Do you not see that whatever goes into a man from outside is not able to make him unclean, Because it goes not into the heart but into the stomach, and goes out with the waste? He said this, making all food clean. And he said, That which comes out of the man, that makes the man unclean. Because from inside, from the heart of men, come evil thoughts" (Mark 7.-18-21 Bible in Basic English (BBE))
We must strive to be whole, solid in thought, heart, and action to be strong and committed believers of Christ and our Lord. The Lord compels us to remember him, wake up and return to him if and when we stray.
To ease our struggle, kneel before God in prayer, asking the Lord to remove the shadows of your heart and mind so you can always remain in the light.
I now ask you, Father, to remove anything impure from my life. I include my thoughts and actions in this request. Let me grow closer to you, Lord, and leave the treacherous behind me.
You have this power, and by choosing you, I know you will share that power with me. You are the only one capable of this gift, and I ask that you share it with me so that I might be free from my sin and demonstrate my love for you. Touch the little places within me with your freeing love. I hunger for you and your solace.
Holy Father, creator of all, I speak this prayer in your loving son's name, Jesus Christ. Amen.
