Letter of Recommendation, Words of my heart by A Texas Artist Laurie Pace

Letter of Recommendation

When you are on a job search or applying to college, everyone asks for a letter of recommendation from friends and employers or previous professors.

They are trying to establish a pattern in your character that would make you stand out as a candidate for the job or admission to college.

What would be on your letter of recommendation to the Father?  In the Bible it is clear good deeds are not the way into His heart.

All men are full of sin. Easy example is one of my own sins that I commit daily. Worry.  Another might be judging things too quickly; things, people or situations. My list is one I confess daily trying hard every morning to be aware and to give those things up to Him.

Instead of writing a letter of your glowing deeds and recommendations, how about a list of things you confess to yourself and to Him?

Words of the heart,

But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. (Isaiah 64:6)
