Until God ordains otherwise, a man ought to bear patiently whatever he cannot correct in himself and in others. Imitation of Christ by John Kempis

Heal our HARDENED Hearts

HEAL OUR HARDENED HEARTS

What causes our hearts to harden?  I have written this blog because I hurt deeply for the wonded in our midst that cannot open to the wonderful love of God.  Their wounds are deep from;

Their sexual bounderies broken.

Abusive parents or spouse.

Betrayal of a good friend, spouse or religious.

We all have had hurts.  Some of us close our hearts and say no one will ever hurt me again.  We put up walls and become very angry.  Our hearts become closed and hardened.  Fear is all we know.  Leaving no place for Love, Peace, Joy, Hope or any of the wonderful feelings of the Holy Spirit.  It leaves no room for Jesus in our hearts.  We cannot love or feel loved because we are closed.  Jesus said , I knock at the door,  all we have to do is open it to have joy.  God is always trying to make it better and we cannot even see it.  We are blinded by anger.  God is making an effort to help, hoping that we open our hearts.  We cannot bring ourselves to trust in his merciful love for us.  We missed the fact that He gave his son to die for our sins.  We just expect the worst.  Make an effort to give up Bitternes, Anger, Dispare, and all the other fruits of the devil that you use to feeling daily.  Surrender to God and repent and turn around and recieve all the good God has waiting for you.

FIRST COMMANDMENT

Hear O’Isreal the Lord God is lord alone. You  shall love the Lord your God with all your heard, with all y our soul, with all your mind and with all your strength.

We are suppose to focus only on God nothing else and LOVE with;

All your SOUL

This means no stain on your soul for too long.  Repent immediately go to confession often.  Remember to guard yourself from all evil.  Love everyone for God is in them.  Be totally alive.  Let the Holy Spirit bring all the fruits and gifts to remain with you. Spend silent time with God alone to worship and listen to his word.

All your HEART

No hardened heart but a open heart that nurtures without reservation.  Total giving of attention, time, and understanding.  Searching only for God alone.

All your MIND

Renew our mind with positive thinking.  Work hard on breaking old habits of negative thinking. Ignoring your imagination and trusting the word of God in making good judgements.  Looking at the fruits of the Holy Spirit to be your attitude.

All your STRENGTH

Never give up on good.  It takes lots of strength to Love God at all times.  Turning to God and trusting in His Powerful protection, will give you all the strength you need.

METANOIA Greek for repentence

a change of mind

a change of heart

a change of life

We never outgrow the need for Metonoia

Matthew 4:10   “You shall worship the lord your God; and him alone shall your serve”

What or who in your life is getting in the way of a right relationship with God?

Lord Free us to Love you completely, Make us Holy in all our ways, Soften our hearts, Renew our minds with your truth, strengthen us by your Holy Spirit to serve you alone.  I ask this in Jesus Name. amen
