• “Lord, I give up all my own plans and purposes, all my own desires and hopes, and accept Thy will for my life. I give myself, my life, my all utterly to Thee to be Thine forever. Fill me and seal me with Thy Holy Spirit. Use me as Thou wilt, work out Thy whole will in my life at any cost, now and forever.” – Betty Scott Stam, 20th Century Martyr

Tune My Heart by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 12/15/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: When I was a teenager, I took some cello lessons. It didn’t take me long to learn that before I could pick up the cello and play it, I needed to make some preparations.

First I had to tighten and lubricate the bow. Then I had to adjust the height of the cello. Then each string had to be tuned. These preparations made a big difference in the sound.

Preparation also affects the time I spend in God’s Word and prayer. Going to bed early enough the night before helps to “tune my heart.” It also helps to meditate on Him as I’m going to sleep.

Then, when I wake up, I need to ask Him to help me connect with Him. I want the words of Isaiah 50, verse 4 to be true of me. It says, “He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen as one being taught.”

What can you do to prepare to connect with God and worship Him in the morning?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
