Because there were so many distractions and interruptions this morning … here it is 10:00 am and I have finally gotten quiet before the Lord. But the desire of my heart is to give Him the first fruits of my day … and that did not happen today. So, I am quieting my heart and stilling my mind to listen … with that nagging feeling of disquiet, knowing it is not my first fruits.
“Perfect love casts out fear … neither do I condemn you, go and sin no more.”
I want to be first on His heart and mind … it is perfectly reasonable for Him to want to be first on my heart and mind. But it is more than that … what we love best, we put first. If He is our best love, then He will be first, and if He is not first, then what do we love better? Time for a heart check. ♥
