Loyal Hearts

“And he did what was right in the sight of the LORD, but not with a loyal heart.”  2 Chronicles 25:2

I was a people pleaser, with a heart that desperately sought approval, always trying to do the “right” things according to the person I was with.

Thank You, Lord, for changing me into a people person, who can love others because of Your great love, whether I can “do right in their sight”  and please them or not.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Change of Heart

It’s tricky business
trying to please

all the while
your heart’s deceived

not really meaning
what you say

oh, but for Jesus
He makes a way!

Right In His Sight

“Asa did what was right in the eyes of the Lord . . .”  1 Kings 15:11

Asa did what was right in God’s sight even though the generations before him had done wrong.

Lord, we desire to follow You today and not blindly do what has been done before.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Most Of All

I see what has been done before
and what others are up to

and feel the pull to follow them
to do just as they do

so keep me in Your Word, oh Lord
let me seek Your heart

to do what You would like me to
to please You most of all.
