Sick

9  The heart is deceitful above all things,
and desperately sick;
who can understand it?

Why do I do the things I do, even when deep down I don’t want to and know I’ll regret them?  What is it that stops me doing what I know I should do?  The heart of the matter is the heart.  Jeremiah describes it as ‘deceitful above all things’, lying to You, to others and most of all to myself.  I know that You know all things, the most hidden corners of me and yet my heart causes me to think and act as if I could hide things from You.  It’s madness, the sign of a desperate sickness that’s in everyone.  The greater the sickness, the greater the denial of its existence.

You are my healer.  You can mend the parts of me that seem broken beyond repair.  Lord please carry on Your work in me, healing my heart and drawing me closer to You.  Heal this sick heart and transform me to Your likeness.
