Hardened Heart (Lent 12)

Where you have broken my heart, O God,
a callus has formed instead of a soft scar.
Probably not what you intended, but then
healing is unpredictable and necessitates
ongoing treatment, persistent grace, and
the massage of lovingkindess over time.
I pray that You do not leave my calluses
unattended, that you do not stop working
on the hardened bits of this broken heart.
