My to-do list can grow quite long until some days I consider a clone. One can work 24/7 on school matters and the other at home. Keeping up on both fronts seems impossible otherwise. Though a science fan, I think I’ll skip that process and instead divide up my time to accomplish the highest priorities on the list. However, no matter how I divide up my time and efforts, I pray for a heart undivided.
As David praised his compassionate God, he wrote-
“Teach me your way, O Lord, and I’ll walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart that I may fear your name. I will praise you, O Lord my God, with all my heart; I will glorify your name forever.” Psalm 86:11-12
At heart I’m a math girl- calculus, trig, algebra, & geometry- I love it all! Yes, I realize some may wonder why they read words from such a loon for math often gets a bad rep. Yet mathematics is the language of science and science is about learning how God did all of this!
I say this to point out that I’m great with division unless it is about my heart. I don’t want a heart divided into sections- one worshiping God on Sunday then on Monday willing to go against right to get what I desire. I want a heart focused on honoring God- always… whether at home or work, with others or alone, when my circumstances are ideal or so dark I can’t see where to take the next step. I want my heart so whole and full of God that every decision, word, and action reflects my desire to bring Him glory.
Lord, give me an undivided heart that seeks your glory whether I’m cooking supper or analyzing test data. Teach my heart your truths. Show me how to bring you glory no matter the task! Amen
