What about your heart?
Jesus said : The one who believes in me as the scripture has said out of his heart will flow rivers of living water. John 7:38.
I was FURIOUS!
The political statement was not only ill informed but motivated by self-interest and the pursuit of power, money and ambitions. It lacked the experience of years of life and the realities of sorrows, loss and the human need to find ‘contentment’ and not WEALTH.
I will phone someone! I will write an article. I will voice protest. I will DO SOMETHING!
The voice in my mind gently said….GUARD YOUR HEART!
All of life we must be informed. We must care but we also must pray and KNOW the battles are HIS. If He says WRITE….then WRITE. or ring or join a protest.
1 Sam. 16: 7 The Lord does not see as man sees for man looks at the ‘outward’ appearance but the Lord Looks at the heart.
Dear Ones, let’s guard our hearts. From this wellspring of LIFE even in times of sorrow, needs, deception and wickedness we must still give to others the ‘living water’ of eternity and HOPE.
YOU ARE LOVED!
I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions.
I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
