Then he said to them, “So thick-headed! So slow-hearted! Why can’t you simply believe all that the prophets said? Luke 24: 25 (The Message)
So slow-hearted! Why can’t you simply believe …
Lord I know you never leave us. You are with us every moment, every breath we take.
My mind accepts this.
But I have a slow heart.
I have heard that one of the longest distances is between the brain and the heart. Though only 18 inches – faith takes a lifetime to travel and take root in our souls.
Come walk with me on my journey to Emmaus, Lord
Pry open my ears. May Your words burn in my heart and set it aflame in faith.
What can’t I simply believe?
Be my pacemaker, Lord, and set my heart to beat in rhythm with You.
I do believe. Help my unbelief.
Phather Phil Malmstrom says
Our minds have a habit of interfering with the truths our hearts are sure of, don’t they Jean?
“Be my pacemaker, Lord, and set my heart to beat in rhythm with You.”
What a lovely and poignant prayer… Thank you for opening yourself yet again Dear Lady.
Have a Blessed Day!

“set my heart to beat in rhythm with You.”…love this prayer…amen.
I don’t know why we find it hard to get it from our mouth to our hearts. The best way I know is to believe it whole heartly and don’t worry about what the flesh says.
You know I love that road, Jeanie!
BE MY PACEMAKER!! WHAT A GREAT LINE THAT IS!! Thanks Clella
Thick headed and slow hearted – what a great description!
“I do believe. Help my unbelief.” A prayer often in my heart as I daily seek to walk in faith.
Oh I just love that we wrote about the same story today, Jean. And your prayer here is the one I pray always.
Thank you for linking up, soul sister!
I had heard that about the distance from head to heart. It is a long distance for me too. Great reflection.
