Heart Of The Matter
The human heart is at the heart of the human problem. It’s part of our nature to blame people, places, and things when it doesn’t turn out like we want. This thinking is built into our culture as well as society. Don’t trust me, just tune into any news broadcast or media report and the finger pointing and blame placing is the major part of the story. This thinking, when allowed to dominate our thoughts, covers our hearts and makes it hard for the Sunlight of the Spirit to flow through our hearts and minds.
Now don’t get me wrong, bad things do happen and there can be other people, places, or things involved. That is what our justice system is for. What about the veil of negativity and closed mindedness we are left with covering our hearts and minds? I mean it’s hard to trust others, especially these days, but because it is a spiritual principal that we have to GIVE in order to GET, that we must put away our negativity and mistrust and replace it with grace and faith. If we can open our hearts to allow Jesus to fill us with His Holy Spirit and to cover and protect us with His grace, then things turn out better. Check your experience…
“Here was something at work in a human heart which had done the impossible.” Big Book pg 11
Lord, let us turn our hearts and minds over to the care of Your will and grace, AMEN.
“Yes, even today when they read Moses’ writings, their hearts are covered with that veil, and they do not understand.” 2 Corinthians 3:15
Have a blessed day y’all!
