"Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will." Romans 12:2
Have you ever had a heart problem? I certainly have. It's been turned this way and that way, squeezed, cut, harden, punched, slapped, pulled, stomped, torn, and broken. Recently, i added to my list an irregular heart beat. Of all the issues, i consider this last one actually good and a healthy hiccup. In fact, i think an irregular heart beat is what i'm after.
Father, i don't want to continue beating to the same rhythm of this world... where the focus is on self. The continuous pounding for more power, more happiness, more prestige, more titles, more money, more stuff is unending and unsatisfying. We live in a broken world in need of a different beat... a beat that considers the needs of others as more important than self.
I want an irregular beating heart in my life. I want it to beat first for You, and then for others... in love, understanding, giving, patience, kindness and gentleness. Strength and guidance from You is the healing i need to truly possess an aMAZing heart.
...be wise, and keep your heart on the right path." Proverbs 23:19
friend, we are loved and chosen by God,
