“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Jeremiah 17:10




‘I the Lord search the heart
and examine the mind,
to reward each person according to their conduct,
according to what their deeds deserve.’


– Jeremiah 17:10 (NIV)






Every human being, by his or her very nature,

is in the image and likeness of God.

The human being can be understood and appreciated

not by reference to other created beings in the universe

but by reference to God.


The likeness between God and us is not a physical one,

for God has no body;

it is a spiritual likeness, lying in our capacity to focus on our inner life and identity.


When we are drawn to think about our real self,

we turn to those deep recesses of our being

where God who probes the heart awaits us,

and where we ourselves decide our own destiny in the sight of God.


How will the Lord find me

if He had to search my heart and examine my mind today?






Come, Lord, and take over my heart and my mind.

Remove all my darkness with Your light

and help me become more like You.
