Short memories harden the heart. So make careful note of God’s blessings! Declare with David, I will daily add praise to praise. I will write the book on Your righteousness, talk up Your salvation the lifelong day, and never run out of good things to write or say. Catalog God’s goodness. Meditate on His acts. He has led you and earned your trust. Remember what He has done for you.
And acknowledge what you have done against God. 1 John 1:10 says, “If we claim we have not sinned, we are calling God a liar and showing that his word has no place in our hearts.” Sin- hoarding stiffens us. Confession softens us. Is your heart hard? Take it to your Father. You are only a prayer away from tenderness. You live in a hard world, but you don’t have to live with a hard heart!
