~ A Heart Delivery ~

Over the last few months while riding, I viewed a variety of several beautiful homes. They were huge with ample room and I began to wonder what if I could occupy one of the rooms inside!  Now we all know a home is our place of refuge where we dwell.  Homes should be built and furnished in such a way that we know when we enter that place we are protected in a place that offers us harmony, bliss and love. This is one place that allows us to feel safe and secure from all of the world’s demands.
As you begin to think about these homes, I want you to think about your heart. Your heart serves as your home and today we have beautiful hearts but instead of them being secured they are filled with much insecurity. Today, hearts are crowded with resentment, anger, bitterness, lust, hate and when we reach out for the things we desire there is no space for anything else.  Christ is waiting on an opportunity where He can reside in your heart. When we allow Christ to intervene in our lives, He is able to replace disorder with order and insecurities with security.
There are many astonishing homes around and although they are amazing, they are empty. New homes are often furnished with credit and several are incapable keep payments which forces them to sell items to pay off balances due. I was amazed when the Holy Spirit revealed this to me in regards to our hearts. We are trying to load our hearts with little happiness and success but in reality we are struggling to maintain people, jobs, finances, and many other things because we did not properly secure our hearts. When your heart is not secure, you cannot manage your desires because it does not have a solid foundation.
A heart should be overflowing with security exuding a confidence that draw others to you. People will gravitate toward a beautiful heart longing to have the same.  Allow Christ to offer you an unconditional love along with a peace that surpasses your own understanding. Remove the clutter and begin to make room for a new delivery. It’s time for you to seek a heart that is filled with an everlasting joy that is able to enjoy the many pleasures of life.
Create in me a clean heart, O God. Renew a loyal spirit within me (Psalm 51:10)
