Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
Christ Jesus, live in my heart by faith, being rooted and grounded in love…
I can ask all kinds of favours and graces from God but never be able to receive them because my heart is not right. To be able to receive the mercies of God, my heart needs to be rooted and grounded in the agape love of God, receiving nourishment from God’s love, and staying grounded in mercy. Then I am able to receive his great graces of love, light, laughter, and life itself, and to pass these graces forward to others. Christ Jesus, live in my heart by faith, being rooted and grounded in love.
O Lord, I trust in your merciful love. My heart will rejoice in your salvation. (Psalm 13:5)
