I continue the Bible study "Makeover of the Heart" with Tracy Berta over At the Well. This is our fourth week. The focus for this week is on a Committed Heart.
This study has been so timely for me. Check out the subheading for this series:
Unlocking the potential of a heart transformed
That's definitely a desire of my heart; to be transformed by the Spirit of the Living God. I want my heart to be fully devoted to Christ.
God doesn't expect perfection. But what He desires is a heart committed and sold out to Him.
It can be very easy to get caught up in commitments.
In order to fully commit, I need to trust God. Hmm ...why does it always seem to keep coming back to trust and obey? My theme for 2010 ...
I'm sure you've heard the saying that you become like the people you spend time with. Maybe you've warned your children about this.
My heart's desire is to grow to become more like Jesus; to reflect His love to those around me. What I have to do though is to spend time with Him.
I don't have to make a huge effort to do things for God. When I spend time with Him, offering my life to Him ...He begins to work in me and through me. He does the work but I need to cooperate.

Whenever I get serious about being totally sold out to God, I find that the enemy hates that. Distractions, doubts and even people seem to get in the way. But it's one step at a time. Today I choose to commit my heart to Him. It becomes a daily heart choice.
Blessings and love,
