What is my heart saying? (Psalm 27)

What is my heart saying?

In good times?

In bad times?

In normal times?

What our heart says often shows to whom we belong.

It’s clear who David’s heart belonged to.

My heart says this about you:
“Seek his face.” (8a)

And so David cried out to God,

Lord, I will seek your face. (8b)

How often does my heart cry out for God? How often does it cry out, “Bruce, seek God!”

How often is my heart’s desire for him? To behold his beauty. To seek him?

How often does my heart cry out for other things instead, without even a thought toward God?

What is my heart crying out?

Who does it belong to?

How about you?

What is your heart saying?

Who does your heart belong to?

I'm from Hawaii, but have been in Japan as a missionary/English teacher since 1995. I'm currently going to a church called Crossroad Nishinomiya, an international church in Nishinomiya, a city right between Kobe and Osaka. Check out their website: crossroad-web.com 私がハワイから来ましたけど1995年に宣教師と英会話の教師として日本に引っ越しました。 今西宮にあるクロスロード西宮という国際の教会に行っています。どうぞ、そのホムページを見てください: crossroad-web.com
