He promised….

to turn hearts of stone into hearts of flesh…
to redeem that which was lost…
to seek after the wandering…
to give new life to the weary…
to bind and heal all wounds…
to fill us with His Spirit and Advocate…
to grant all the graces necessary…
to be with us until the end of time.

He continues to fulfill these promises, one by one.  I am renewed in a desire to seek after Our Lord’s promises and to trust in their fulfillment.  He will not leave us empty-handed and He will not forget us.

He is the faithful provider.  He is the Good Shepherd.  He is.

My hard heart has a renewed desire to melt at His feet and to bask in the glory of belonging to Him.  I do not desire the minimum, the just-enough-to-get-by.  I want sanctity.  I want His heart to be my heart.  I want to live from the mercy that He pours out on, into, and through my soul.  I want to take up residence next to His Sacred, Redeeming, beating human heart.  I want to be the work of art sculpted at the Potter’s hands, lovingly crafted, slowly meandering toward completeness.

I want nothing but You, Lord.  Jesus, I trust in Your Promises.
