Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada, and I’ve been praying lately that God would give me a undivided heart; that is, a heart that is wholly focused on Him. I tell you, it’s a big prayer, what with this crazy culture – so much noise, clutter, and distractions! Often I'm rushing through my days in a frenetic (that’s a good word for it) a frenetic pace. And when that happens, a zillion things all clamor for a piece of my heart.  Am I describing you? Well, perhaps you should join me in praying the same: it’s the prayer of First Kings 8, "Let your heart therefore be wholly devoted to the Lord our God." Listen. A hundred things might compete for your attention today, but don't let your heart become divided. Don't let your devotion get split down the middle. Round up your affections, corral your desires, gather your heart together, and present it to Him today wholly and undivided.
