Listen to our heart

 

Listen to our heart

Is it a suitable SANCTUARY for the LORD?

Does  our heart overflow with streams of LIVING-WATER?

Does LOVE,COMPASSION,HUMILITY,PEACE fill our heart?

Is it truly the LORD WHO DWELLS there?

OR is our heart the pedestal for SELF-LOVE

Does PRIDE,ENVY,GREED,HATE,LUST rule there?

Does ANGER, DIS-ILLUSIONMENT, LIES, fill our heart?

Has our heart become the abode of cynicism,apathy,callousness?

 

Does our heart reverberate with praise and adoration

Of our LOVING and GRACIOUS LORD?

Or does it resound with noisy cymbals of Self-praise,Self-pity, Self-deception?

O let us  honestly examine our heart-motives,

Let us examine our heart-values;

For our ALMIGHTY,HOLY,RIGHTEOUS LORD judges us

On the condition of our heart.

In Humility, let us ask for forgiveness,

Remembering HIS MERCY never ends, HIS LOVING KINDNESS

Endures forever.
