When We Just Don’t Get It

In one word, I really do not understand. Maybe I doubt because my pride does not allow me to believe. (Elizabeth) (September 7-8, 1962 )

Today’s Readings: Do you not yet understand or comprehend? Are your hearts hardened? Do you have eyes and not see, ears and not hear? (Mark 8)

Prayer Meditation- Lord it is kind of humorous. You speak of the leaven of the Pharisees, or their hypocrisy. The Apostles just don’t get it, they think You are speaking of literal bread and how they are down to one loaf. Lord, I have to admit we are so often on different wave lengths. Your ways are not our ways (Isaiah 55:8). Most of the time, like the Apostles, we are too focused on ourselves and our temporal concerns. Or our pride, vanity, self- absorption, anxiety, distrust- all of it just gets in the way of our hearing Your Voice clearly and understanding what You are saying. Lord, what we really need to is to totally surrender our hearts to You in total abandonment. Create in us O Lord a clean heart so that we can journey with You in an ever closer walk with You!
