and when a prayer or plea is made by anyone among your people Israel—being aware of their afflictions and pains, and spreading out their hands toward this temple— then hear from heaven, your dwelling place. Forgive, and deal with everyone according to all they do, since you know their hearts (for you alone know the human heart), so that they will fear you and walk in obedience to you all the time they live in the land you gave our ancestors.
2 Chronicles 6:29-31
Before we jump into today’s reflection, grant me a moment to share a special message. For me, today is a super special day. It’s the day my beloved mother was brought into this big world to bless me, our family and friends, and others. I am so grateful for her and for what she has done for me. She is not only my mother but she is my friend, teacher, coach, confidante, and mentor. I will always love, respect, and look up to her. Happy birthday Mom!
Okay, so let’s dive into today’s reflection…
Only God knows what’s in our heart. Only He has the full knowledge of our past, present, and future. We don’t really comprehend what this means, how special our connection with Him is, and why nurturing our relationship with Him— through daily prayer and conversations, and consistent obedience, is so important.
The stronger and healthier our relationship with Him, the better our relationship with self and others. Let’s work on doing better, walking the walk, and ensuring that our heart is properly aligned with our thoughts, words, and actions.
Father, thank You for your unwavering, unconditional, everlasting love. Thank You for always believing in me and for constantly reminding me who I am and reassuring me of what I can do, and can be. Thank You for molding me. I know I probably frustrate You but Your grace and mercy cancels out my blunders. Thank You Father. I love you. I need You. I want to strengthen my relationship with You. You know my heart Father. I thank You now for helping me. I praise Your Name. Amen.
