Return to Me - Malachi 3:6-7

"I the LORD do not change. So you, O descendants of Jacob, are not destroyed. Ever since the time of your forefathers you have turned away from my decrees and have not kept them. Return to me, and I will return to you," says the LORD Almighty.

Thank you, dear God, that you do not change. Where we fail you and fall short, please change our hearts, our habits and anything that keeps us from a closer relationship with you. Open our eyes, our ears, and our minds. Direct our words and the path we choose so that we are drawn closer to you. When we face challenging situations and uncertain times, rekindle the embers of faith that seem cool to the touch. By your breath on these embers, set ablaze our faith to height and depth yet unknown. Lead us, guide us, and direct us in all we say and do so that our words and our actions are pleasing unto you. In your precious name we pray. Amen

  1. Simply beautiful. So many times I've asked the Lord to do just this in my life. He's never failed me - even as have failed Him. I love the form Nan's Calendar has taken. Congratulations. Bless you, my friend.
