2 Kings 12.3
Even so, he didn't get rid of
may there be no "even so's" in our life when it comes to following you, when it comes to putting you first. may we never neglect to get rid of everything that runs counter your ways, everything that hurts you, everything that compromises our relationship with you. may we make sure to make provision for everything that will bring us closer to you, all things that teach us more about you, all things that let us learn more about you, recognize your heart, know how you move, every bit do your gracious revelation, make the most out everything you have gifted us with and poured out into us and be who you need us to be to those around us. thank you lord.
