Help for Your Heart

 Help for Your Heart

God’s Word is amazingly beautiful, speaking to our circumstances as no other words can. One verse that is a favorite of mine is Psalm 61:2. I have quoted it to hurting people for many years now and have clung to it myself during times of trouble. So many times when seeking to encourage someone else this verse has come into my heart and spirit.  As I thought on the beauty of these words today, I wanted to share some simple truths from this verse.

When my heart is overwhelmed; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

Psalm 61:2

 

  1. Sometimes our hearts are overwhelmed. One definition of overwhelmed is  to overcome completely in mind or feeling. There are times in our human experience that our mind and/or feelings are completely overcome.

Love Letters

Posted by: | Comments (2)

  Do you keep little notes and cards that people have given you? I have notes from my husband and children and friends that I keep in a special place. I have messages on my phone that I don’t erase. While I may not consciously think about the scripture “The power of life and death are in the tongue”, my actions almost always tell me that it is true. 

I have a note on my desk that my husband wrote to me this year. In fact, I have an entire box of love letters that he and I wrote to each other over 30 years ago when we were dating.

The Question Lodged Deep in our Hearts

Posted by: | Comments (0)

I so enjoy the daily e-devotions that are written by John Eldredge. They are usually excerpts from his books including Wild at Heart, Waking the Dead, The Sacred Romance, etc.  For me, they are so real and provide such a revealing glimpse into my heart. The following is today’s devotional which leaves you with a question. I find that our real relationship with God allows us to ask very hard questions about God’s heart. He is not threatened by our questions for He knows that in our journey to find the answers, we find out what is true about Him. And that is the truth that sets us free.

 

The question lodged deep in our hearts, hidden from our conscious minds, is: “Do you care for me, God?”
