How many times do I place obstacles within my heart as a barrier to God‘s mercy? God‘s love and mercy so desperately want to work in my heart but I must first open the door. How do I close the door to this love and mercy? By thinking I don’t need God, thinking it’s all up to me to change others or situation, being unaware that God is ever present. Even my pain and suffering can blind me to trusting in God‘s mercy.
As I open my soul and the more trusting I become, God pours His grace within me. God smiles upon me as I open my heart, let go of my control, and surrender to the treasures of His grace and His plan. As I seek God’s voice and allow it to influence me, I feel the hope of living in the divine plan. My heart melts a bit and I see myself through a filter of kindness and abundance.
Trust the past to the mercy of God, the present to His love and the future to His providence.St. Augustine
Thank You, Lord, for breaking down the barriers to You in my heart.
