Soul Snack 205/11 ... Heart-felt
Would you prefer the heart of heaven to the heart in humans?
Do you ache for a heart of:
- faithfulness and not lust,
- honor and not shame,
- service and not indulgence,
- generosity and not greed,
- grace and not judgement,
- mercy and not punishment,
- peace and not restlessness,
- righteousness and not evil,
- purity and not sin,
- satisfaction and not coveting with
- repair and not fracture?
It is even a divine favor to just long for these. So many traverse the cobblestones of life, meandering through the mountaintops and weeping in the valleys without even appreciating such distinctions.
God seeks to birth a new heart in each of us. He wants each of us to see heaven from earth - this comes through heart surgery.
For spiritual re-birth I need to sow to the spirit.
I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. (Ezekiel 36:26)
For a heart from heaven I need to sow to the Heart of Heaven.
Unlike any other surgery this heart-surgery can only be conducted in humility and on the knees.
(POSTSCRIPT ... of course if you don't want a new heart - remain vertical.)
