Time for Verse 3!

Here's my first verse to memorize for the month of February:

"Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts".

Psalm 139:23 NIV

I try to pick out verses that are speaking something to me personally - verses that I really need to know and hide in my heart at the time I'm searching for them.  God has been convicting me lately of some things I do and say at times, mostly out of habit.  I want to be more conscious of my words and actions and not do anything that would hurt someone or give someone the wrong impression, most particularly those I love.

I've recently been thinking about the Psalms of David and how he was brave enough to ask God to reveal to him his heart....to help him see the root of his actions.  It's a scary thing to see our own hearts like God does!  He knows our motives behind everything that we do and say! 

I want my heart to be pure and reflect God's love in all that I do.  We don't always feel like doing or saying the godly thing, but I want to intentionally choose to do what Jesus would do :)

You won't waste any prayers on me if you'd be willing to pray for me in this matter.  And please let me know if there is anything at all I can pray about for you :)  There is power in prayer!
