My Uncluttered Prayer

Gwen SmithDevotions 3 Comments

There always seem to be a million voices vying for my attention. Can you relate? True confessions: I often choose good things instead of the Best thing. Instead of the Best One.

I wish it weren’t the case, but it is. I get easily distracted and frazzled. I never seem to satisfy my to-do list and I struggle with time management. It surprises me continually that God would choose to use a cluttered woman such as me. But His grace abounds. It reaches my most unfocused, unproductive heart places. Grace covers my mess and uncovers His faithfulness.

God’s loving goodness constantly draws me back to His peace.

Oh, how I want to live life in simple grace. To listen intently to the heartbeat of God and respond with love and a twinkling nod. I want my love for Him to always be uncluttered.

The song below finishes this thought. Hope it hits you in a tender heart place.


“The LORD preserves the simple; when I was brought low, he saved me.” Psalm 116:6

Blessings and Grace,

  1. I have gone through a deep deceit from the enemy. He carried me through in the hours of the night I called on him and learned to surrender and prayer with him and friends. I began this years ago. However, there are times you need to be retaught through circumstances that he allows us to grow through. I love your article and It helped me to renew my self and my mind through Jesus. I love your ministry and from the other team from Proverbs 23. Love you and and prayers for your outreach.
