This is one of the few lines from Miss Clara’s prayer that didn’t bring a verse to mind immediately. Searching for the phrase “whole heart” brought me to Jeremiah: “I will give them a heart to know that I am the the Lord and they shall be my people and I will be their God, for they shall return to me with their whole heart.”
The verse appears in a story about good and bad figs, which made me think about Jesus cursing the fig tree (a story that’s always confused me).
I wish I had some deep thoughts to share about figs, but I don’t. I need to do more research! But I found a cute picture of a basket of figs.
Here’s the honest truth about the tip-in, too: I finished dinner before everyone else and there were art supplies on the table! It just sort of happened.
As I look at this page and wonder if it all works together or not, I pray that God is preparing hearts for worship around the world and that as we enter the season of Advent, Christians will bear the fruits of hope, peace, joy, and love. Wishing you a beautiful worship experience!!!
