Collapsing the Soul's Scaffold
O Lord that I would hunger for your glory and love your story above mine. Tear the scaffolds of my heart down, show me my heart and strip its selfishness that our hearts may become as one.
Deposit your Spirit within me that out spirits may too become as one.
Send me your Holy Spirit that you may equip me for your holy work.
O Lord that I would only be as concerned for you that I am with me. Amen
‘This is how it will be with whoever stores up things for themselves but is not rich towards God.’ ( Luke 12:21)
Complacency towards sin and mediocrity at devotion are not richness towards God.
It is in solitude that I get rid of my scaffolding. ~ Henri Nouwen
A heart fully given over to Jesus is an unstoppable force in God's hands.
