my reply to another bloggers question how to NOT hear the dreaded saying of Jesus..
I never knew you
Oh God deliver us from the subtle deception that Your gift is "my" gift. Deliver us from choosing an expedient program, over humbly waiting on You. Forgive us for leaving our first love, our bridal love, for You and becoming adulterers with the gifts You give. Purify the sons of Levi, with the flame of Your love and Your two-edged sword judge, reveal and heal the thoughts and intentions of our hearts. Give us hearts that choose the discipline and judgment today, while it is still light, In Jesus' Name, Amen.
