On Our Hearts: Less is More

Heavenly Father,

In this crazy world we often find ourselves just going through the motions. We're running to the grocery store, leading the PTA meeting, balancing the checkbook, sorting the laundry, and shuffling our children off to their next activity. Where have we placed you, Lord? Are we shining Your light brightly or have we covered it with our lists and expectations? Who do people see when they look at us? Are they seeing You or are they seeing the wrinkled blouse we forgot to iron?

We praise You God for our Savior that has rescued us. Your work in us is not done, yet we how often do we claim to be the finished product? Lord, we ask for a renewed passion for You. Let our mouths speak of Your praise, our eyes be focused on Your glory, and our ears tuned to Your guidance. When others look at us, let them see You, Lord. As Your word tells us: He must increase, but I must decrease. We need more of You in us, Lord.


"In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven." Matthew 5:16
