What is in Your Heart?

Psalm9112

What is in your heart, Deborah? I heard the still, small voice of the Lord asking the question in the midst of my struggles.

My heart? I thought. What do you mean by “heart”? The word heart was like a foreign word to me. I was busy-busy, doing for the Lord and doing for those who were needy. Didn’t He know that? At the same time, I was attempting to be the best wife, mother, and homemaker on the planet. I was one driven, stressed out, overwhelmed young woman! But God heard the cries of my heart even before I knew my heart was crying and broken.

That experience happened many years ago, and little did I know that I was about to embark on a journey of spiritual growth and emotional healing that would have positive affects on my physical health, and take my heart to the “secret place” (Psalm 91) where God’s love heals, transforms, empowers, and keeps us moving forward into spiritual maturity and enlightenment.

As we live in this challenging world, God reaches out to all whose hearts have been broken and wounded (that includes all humans on fallen planet earth), offering the promise of Psalm 147:3: “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds [curing their pains and their sorrow].” It is my prayer that my simple posts will encourage many to keep pressing on in a growing, loving, and passionate heart-relationship with Jesus Christ, that through times of faith or times of faltering all will experientially discover that our loving God is always present to help and heal the heart of the struggling soul.

Follow me on a journey of heart-healing, as we learn how the simple prayer of pouring out the heart’s fear, hurt, anger, discouragement , and hopelessness onto Jesus makes room for His Holy Spirit to heal and refill the heart with His love, joy, peace, hope, and faith. God desires and promises true heart healing for each of His children.

So I ask, what is in your heart?

“God’s glory is all around me! His wrap-around presence is all I need, for the Lord is my Savior, my Hero, and my life-giving strength. Join me everyone! Trust only in God every moment! Tell him all your troubles and Pour out your heart-longings to him. Believe me when I tell you- He will help you!” (Psalm 62:7-8) tPt
