Obedience, Not Sacrifice
1 Samuel 15:22
"Tell me," Samuel said. "Does the Lord really want sacrifices and offerings? No! He doesn't want your sacrifices. He wants you to obey him."
If you are a regular follower here at Meditations of My Heart, you know that part of my Lenten discipline this season has been giving up Facebook. So why, you ask, am I returning prematurely?
Because beginning this Friday, I will be sharing a series of posts that God assures me are too life-changing, too full of His grace and mercy, not to reach as wide an audience as possible. The Lord isn't interested in my "sacrifice" as much as He wants me to obey Him.
And obey, I will, with His ever-present help.
So today's post is short and sweet, a simple and sincere invitation to join me over these next few weeks, in what promises to be a story of God's faithfulness, His loving-kindness, and His answers to prayer. Lots and lots of prayers!
I do hope to see all of you, dear friends, back here on Friday. In the interim, know I will be praying this Scripture from whence my blog gets its title: Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer. ~Psalm 19:14
