Matters of the Heart – Part 2

Last summer I wrote about duct tape…. I discovered the only way to open myself to others was to completely open myself to God. I had to hand over my sticky plaque-filled heart and let Him do what He does best: Love me, clean away the plaque of life’s hurts and get out there to do what He called us all to do – love others.

We all know heartache comes…and yet we rarely expect it when it does – maybe that’s how you know you’ve completely given your heart to someone or something….

Perhaps the test is to decide what to do with your heart when it feels like it’s been through a meat grinder:

Do you pull out the duct tape and try to piece it back together on your own? OR

Do you call on God and allow Him to provide true healing?

My vote goes to the latter…

God assures us He works ALL things together for good (Rom 8:28) – even heartache….

God assures us He has a plan for our lives…plans to prosper us and not harm us – plans to give us hope and a future (Jer 29:11)

During any transition, we’re reminded not to focus on the circumstance and instead be thankful! He has the pruning shears out – growing us in ways we may not see today, but HE SEES – He knows the harvest to come!

“God looks forward to blessing us every day. Live expectantly.”
