Hebrews 3:12-19  – Warning Against Unbelief

Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.

John 2:23-3, 15

The wind blows where it chooses and you hear the sound of it, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes.


Each day I have opportunities to experience and give GRATITUDE, see and feel BEAUTY, receive hugs and LOVE, give GRACE, SHARE talent, HEAR laughter and make CHOICES that allow me to better my health to better do your service.

I also have days when I have the opportunity to COMPLAIN about people and responsibilities, INSULT instead of kindly disagree, DISMISS and make an excuse not to teach, experience STRESS that clouds judgement, and IGNORE someone in need of my attention because I am distracted.


Soften my heart so that I feel your presence and open my ears so that I hear your wind blow through. Help me to cut through the busy-ness, the rush, and the stress and recognize that every interaction is a chance to lift-up, praise, teach, and show love. Thank you for not giving up on us….you said it yourself in Deuteronomy:


Help me to control my “human-ness” and the instinct to doubt. Allow me to see you each day and not to turn away….not to harden my heart.
