“The crucible for silver and the furnace for gold, but the Lord tests the heart.” Proverbs 17:3
Lord God, you take what is superficial in our lives and by applying the heat of your discipline you burn away our false security, pride, self righteousness, and misplaced alligences. Why? Because you love us. You want the image of your Son to shine through us. The Troubles and trials in this life temper us and make us even more precious in your sight as we trust you. We are in your Hands. And we give you thanks! In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
“Put your hope in the Lord, for with the Lord is unfailing love and with him is full redemption.” Psalm 130:7
