Oh my word!
Wow……w o w.
Ok, the last post has set me on a freakin’ bunny trail that I DO NOT have time to follow at the moment. But wow.
What does God care about? The heart. How do I KNOW this? Because He tells me so over and over and over again in scripture.
In The Message, 470 times; New Living Translation, 528; NIV? 743; NASB, 805; KJV, the high (of all translations I checked) 884.
A quick look tells me about His heart and about mine and about yours, too. And about anyone who’s ever lived or will live. I’m overwhelmed. I’m stunned. Why this is so amazing to me is questionable. I should know this, it shouldn’t take me by surprise. And yet it did.
My initial response is as David’s was in Psalm 51:10, “Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me.” That will have to do for now. But I know what I’ll be writing about next.
(and doubtful I’ll finish it this week…I’m headed to “school” so it may have to wait til next week. This one’s gonna take some time.)
Gotta end with one more “wow”.
