Whose heart do you hold in your hand? Most of us have more than one heart that so delicately rests in our hands and we make or break them on a daily basis. Our words, our tone of voice our attitude so powerfully effect those around us. You see the ones who have placed their hearts in our hands have entrusted their very existence to us. Emotionally, they have trusted us to love them, nurture them and care for them. They believe we will protect their hearts and they certainly trust that it will not be us that breaks their heart. Ephesians 4:29 commands, "Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers." Do your words impart grace? Are your words full of pure and holy things that Jesus would describe as edifying. Would Jesus look at your words and the delicate hearts that rest in your hands, (you know the ones, your spouse, your children, your best friend, your mother, your father) and look at your words to these individuals and say well done, well done my good and faithful servant. You have lifted these delicate hearts up and full of grace you have ministered with your words and your actions. You have allowed My love to flow through you and to these precious babies that I entrusted to your care. Would these beautiful words be what you would hear or would you get the stare of all stares. Would He say, 'what you have said to the lest of these you have said to me. The things you have done to hurt the least of these you have done unto me.' Dude I know this is pretty heavy stuff, kind of sad on this day of love to have the smack down laid on you. Well, deal with it! Get up up off your whining seat and get out there and tell them that you love them. Tell them they are precious to your heart and that you will hold their hearts with the strongest hands and will allow God to strengthen your abilities to nurture their hearts. Tell them they are a gift from god and you recognize to whom they belong and that you will fight the good fight in protecting them. Tell them they are amazing and beautiful. Tell that God created you to love them and that love them you will do with every ounce of strength that Christ Jesus has breathed into your lungs. Tell them that there is no one on this earth like them. Tell them in the words of Uncle Kracker,
You're better then the best
I'm lucky just to linger in your light
Cooler then the flip side of my pillow, that's right
Nothing can compare to where you send me,
Lets me know that it's ok, yeah it's ok
And the moments where my good times start to fade
You make me smile like the sun
Fall out of bed, sing like a bird
Dizzy in my head, spin like a record
Crazy on a Sunday night
You make me dance like a fool
Forget how to breathe
Shine like gold, buzz like a bee
Just the thought of you can drive me wild
Ohh, you make me smile
Hey I don't agree with a great deal of his lyrics but you gotta admit this song is a home run. Pretty Sheree, I dedicate this blog to you and your beautiful smile. You absolutely positively make me smile! I love you more today than yesterday but nowhere near as much as tomorrow!
Reaching for Him,
