Hearts

May 18
Today during a time of prayer, I realized I was praying for people with hard hearts, broken hearts, open hearts, hearts of gold and hearts of stone. The load was becoming heavy and the Lord said, "Let it go and focus on Me! Lay your burdens before Me and watch me work!"

"Anyone can pass judgment-but can they lay down their lives in love, intercession and faith for the one judged? Can they target an area of need and rather than criticizing, fast and pray, asking God to supply the very virtue they feel lacking? And then persevere in that love-motivated prayer until that fallen area blooms in godliness? Such is the life Christ commands we follow!" Francis Frangipane

Here is what the Lord has to say about hearts....
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Deuteronomy 6:5-7
