Things the Lord gives me, and then I write them.

Is Our Sorrow God's Grace?

Today we come before the Lord once again inquiring of Him and to listen for His responses. I pray for us that He will open our ears to hear what He says, and then, in some way, respond to Him in our lives as He provides application.

The questions we ask you, Lord, are: How does it work that a certain measure of sorrow can lead to repentance and a softening of the heart? Is this not often accomplished in utter brokeness and despair? Is this the necessary ingredient that ultimately leads some to total surrender and others to their destruction?

The questions were provided by a brother in the Lord. Thank you for your contribution to the Body in this way.

We wait, We listen, We share, We respond.

    Got this while showering yesterday:
    Until a man is humbled by My means, He will not be able to truly receive anything of value from Me.

    Well said Sister Patti! Those words are so familiar for I have heard the same whispering in my ear. Humility is what is so lacking in today's contemporary forms of love. Long gone are the days when the majority of people understood love to be an unwavering committment and "charity" to be selfless love. When we can truly humble ourselves the Holy Spirit finds a comfortable abode but apart from true humility, love is not safe!
