Stony Heart

Evening prayers last night struck me to the heart, in a way that they have not done for a long time, and reduced me to a state of tearfulness.
I slept well but woke up at 3.00am and simply could not get properly back to sleep again. I stayed in bed, and prayed, and dozed, prayed and dozed till 6.30, when I gave up and started the day.

Almost like a wake-up call from God :-)

I feel more alive today, more aware of how stony my heart had become without me even really noticing it........

God is good.

It's amazing how subtley this condition creeps up on us. And we aren't even aware of it until God breaks through again...

Glory to Him!

A very familiar experience for me. Except, unlike Anastasia, I tend to go for a few more days after I do realize it, before making room for God to break through. (heavy sigh)
