No silent heart.
Soul Snack 37/10 ... No Silent Heart.
Rising (quite often with little attention) within each of us are the passions of the heart. These passions can both promote pleasure and permit pain.
Lambs bounce across fields and baby sparrows squawk. Calves spring with delight and whales frolic. Even the animal kingdom knows the times when hearts are alight. I doubt if there is truly anyone in this world that has a completely dispassionate heart.
The God of the heavens is also the God of my heart. His good actions and fine intentions are for my heart of passion. He turns my tribulations to song.
The heart, that seat of my emotions, then brings us both delight.
It is a hidden favor from the heavens when my heart does not remain silent and it rises to Him on the wings of praise.
"You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing to you and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give you thanks forever." (Ps 30:11-12)
(ps ... How sad it truly is when a heart remains silent to God.)
