Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them slip from your heart as long as you live. Deuteronomy 4:9a
Let them slip from your heart as long as you live
Lord, you warn me to be careful.
You say gently, don’t forget
Don’t let what I know to be true to slip away.
I let my hands get so filled with others things I cannot cling to Your hands.
I chose, yes it is my decision, to follow the shiny objects of the world instead of focusing only on You.
Yet Lord you never leave me.
You wait patiently, guarding me, watching me.
You seek me where I stray and gently nudge me back into Your heart
You see me start to wander off Your chosen path for me and warn me –
Don’t let them slip from your heart.
Lord Your love is the Velcro around my heart to help me cling to You.
Lord You are the straight and narrow road and only You keep me from falling and losing my way.
You catch me when I fall.
Lord You are the one I love and follow. Cup my life with Your loving hands so none of Your precious words slip away.
Thank you for not only providing for my outward needs, but continually working inward on my mind so I don’t forget.
Thank you for protecting my heart so I don’t let Your words slip out.
Thank you for being my anchor and my stay
