When the thought of “Something For Your Heart” came to me, I got such a feeling of warmth in my heart. The thought immediately caused me to become attentive, believing that God was about to share something wonderful and praiseworthy with me….with us! And you know, He never fails!
I’m thinking you felt something similar when you read this title?! Did it make you anticipate the possibilities?! Possibilities for your good?! It did for me. It gave me a sense that I was about to write something that was going to help me and others in a deep and meaningful way.
Why? Why did reading those four words invoke such feelings? I believe it’s because we are all looking for Hope. We are looking for someone to tell us something that gives us hope and meaning and touches our hearts. Something real and true that we can grab a hold of to change our lives for the better. We are all wanting to be acknowledged in some way. We want to be told that everything is going to work out just fine. We are all wanting a better life for ourselves and for our loved ones. Most of us want to be the best person we can possibly be (most of us anyway)! We want to be made whole! And unless something affects our hearts and our way of thinking, it can’t effectively be put into action. And even if it is acted upon, it won’t have the same impact to change us if it’s not real and heart-provoking.
Impact! That was my heart’s desire (and still is) when the Lord called me to venture into teaching and preaching, and writing His words. I wanted to make a positive impact on people’s lives. I wanted to share with them something useful that they could put into action and use to make a real difference in their lives. I wanted to make a positive difference, so much so that it is what drives me in my writing style….in my writing thoughts (and, of course, the Holy Spirit). To me, there’s not much point in writing something if it doesn’t move a person’s heart to make a change in some real way. If it doesn’t grab a hold of them at the core of their being and causes them to do something different….something different that enlightens them and makes them want to be made new! Why write if you’re not helping someone?! If the words we write don’t hit the reader where it matters the most, we are just tapping on keys.
So what’s the “Something For Your Heart” message? The something for your heart message is the comfort of knowing that we know Someone who can heal our aching hearts! Someone who can change our lives and make us brand new. Someone who truly cares about us and wants to make us new. His name is Jesus Christ, the Living Water and He is with you now, wanting to take on your struggles and simplify your life. He doesn’t want us striving….losing our peace. He can and wants to help us in every aspect of our lives. Knowing Jesus is a comfort to me. He is Help like no other. He is all the help that we will ever need to get through this life. His help truly changes our circumstances!
Do you want your life to change? Ask Jesus! Do you want a different and better life for yourself and your children? Ask Jesus! Do you want a new beginning? Ask Jesus! Whatever it is….whatever you need, it’s at His table. Go to Him in prayer and ask Him!
And that, My Loves, is Something For Your Heart!
