We hunger and thirst for lives that are more fully alive. God, Author of Life, please lead us there.

Abba, please forgive me for my carelessness of speech last night. Spending an evening with guys, something I don't do very often, revealed an openness in me to a kind of joking I know dishonors You. "There must be no filthiness & silly talk, or coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks" (Eph 5:4). Coarse jesting... silly talk... yes, Lord, that is what it is.
Oh how I long to be free from these expressions of pride & self-will! Abba, please take it out of me! Prune me, Father, so I can bear much fruit!
