• “A woman can become a blessing to many (even to the one who harms her) through what she has learnt of God in her sorrows! To become a woman of God, one must be prepared to face many trials. Like the sandalwood tree that imparts its fragrance to the axe that cuts it.” – Dr. Annie poonen

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.
