My Daily Journal:
The message I took from today was to really listen to my heart and let it speak to me and others. Luke 24:32 says, “They asked each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?””
I have been working on changing my language and thinking to better reflect this. In the past, I would experience something and think and comment, “wow, that was cool” or “wasn’t that amazing?” or on the other side of the coin “man, this is too difficult for me to do” or “I don’t think I can do this on my own.” But now, I’m trying more and more to get my thoughts and my words aligned with what my heart is telling me, which is simply, “this is God’s work.”
The more I do it, the more I realize just how many times throughout the week my “heart burns”. When you watch for it and acknowledge and praise Him, God opens your eyes more and more to see fire he has placed in your heart. That fire is called the Holy Spirit and it lives and burns in all believers, but, so often we hide it under a basket instead of letting it shine and fill the whole room and our whole lives with Light.
Give it a try. The next time you find yourself in one of those moments of wonderment, don’t hide it simply say – “That’s God!”
