Heart Tune-Up

In my Bible reading this morning I came across the phrase, "a heart in tune with God." What does it take to have a heart that is in tune with my Heavenly Father? It takes dying to self and the desires that I have. It means putting others first, choosing to be a servant. Sometimes it means choosing to love someone that I am having a struggle with. It requires me to be digging in God's Word to find those "pearls" that He has for me. It takes having an active relationship with the Lord. It takes seeking God's will above my own.

At times I find that I need to go to God and ask Him for a heart tune-up. I need to humble myself and allow Him to remove all the dirt, grime, and sin that has taken root in my heart. Only He can clean and purify it and make it spotless again.

My prayer for today is that God performs a mighty cleaning job in my heart so that I can have my heart in tune with Him. More of you Lord and less of me.
