A Work In Progress

How can a young person stay on the path of purity?
    By living according to your word.
10 I seek you with all my heart;
    do not let me stray from your commands.
11 I have hidden your word in my heart
    that I might not sin against you.
-Psalm 119:9-11

I read Psalm 119 last night.  It is a long Psalm, but Ezra was saying things that I wanted to say to God.  I truly do seek to follow You with all my heart.  I know that sometimes I will not meet that challenge, but that's ok if I rely on the Lord and ask for forgiveness and strength in those times that I have failed or do not measure up.

I am a work in progress.  Although, I think I am a very slow work in progress. I am a Yugo trying to keep up with God who is driving a Ferrari.  I have no idea where that came from!!  But, I think you know what I am saying. As long as I keep my eyes and heart on God, I believe that everything will work out for the best.  

Dear Father, my heart is on fire for you; let my mind always do the same.  I know that Your ways are what You strive for us to follow and I pray that you will help me seek Your guidance and repentance as I start on this long journey to become more like You.  I thank you and ask this in Jesus' name, Amen!!

I love how you said that you will not always meet the challenge. I feel that too. I enjoy the race of catching up to the Ferrari. God is totally worth the effort. God Bless, Brother.
