Father, I’m sorry for when I muted Your voice, strayed from Your commandments, Your word. Other people & their ideas became more important to me. Then I was lost, distracted, far away from You & Your talking.
Restore to me the joy of Your salvation (Psalm 51). Likewise, people have been saying our fall glory, the array of colors has been washed out looking. And now it’s end of October, beginning of November and we’ve lost our chance to view real beauty on the leaves this year. Let us hope for joy remembering the beauty of years past & years to come as we stay grateful.
We don’t need a performance from You or Your preachers.
Our hearts have grown dull – Matt 13:15:
“For this people’s heart has become calloused;
they hardly hear with their ears,
and they have closed their eyes.
Otherwise they might see with their eyes,
hear with their ears,
understand with their hearts
and turn, and I would heal them.“
