40 day prayer's july 02

Wanna blog this before I forgot about it heee... getting old mah

Was reading july 02 from 40 days of prayer guide book titled " Seeding the heart" this morning on the bus to work.

I came to the part of PROVERBS 24 (30-34) that goes
"I went past the field of the sluggard, past the vineyard of the man who lacks judgement; thorns had come up everywhere, the ground was covered with weeds, and the stone wall was in ruins. I applied my heart to what I observed and learned from what I saw: A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest and poverty will come on you like a bandit and scarcity like an armed man."

Actually I was trying to read this 02july section last nite but went to sleep instead cos I chose to sleep and read it this morning on the bus. And the scripture above really spoke to me. Choosing to sleep instead of spending time with God will make me poor spiritual. A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest God says and the devil will come to rob me. Its pretty scary when words like bandit is used. Cos it means it will shock you and catch you off guard. I want to be more diligent and stop procastinating!

And reflection back to the cell retreat where I shared seeing the condition of my heart. God showed me a heart of stone. And july02 also spoke about this heart of stone and asked the state of our hearts. I thank God for speaking to me and I asked Holy Spirit to search, to probe, to reveal... and frankly I'm fearful of what will be revealed. hahahhaa But I know its necessary before I can have a pure heart.

Thanks for reading my sharing. I will try to come up here more often to write and read more and be more diligent heh!

Dearest Qi,

Thanks for sharing this with us here. It spoke to me as well.

I understand your 'fears' facing what the Lord can reveal to you. But always rem, the Lord is faithful to walk you thru. i think it is going to be a beautiful journey of His moulding and growing you. And 'where His spirit is, there is freedom'! Be set free! =)

Yes, do blog more often. I want to read. Heh.
