I will give them an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them; I will remove from them their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh. Ezekiel 11: 19. NIV
When my mother was in the hospital more than 14 years ago, I listened to this song over and over again. I needed the Lord’s heart beating in my heart to endure the months long trial of her illness. I needed to know His closeness, His forgiveness, His restoration, His presence in the darkness. It gave me such hope.
Within the last month, the tune began playing in my heart. I didn’t recognize it at first. I would hum a few bars and try to place it. Then the words came like a flood–a heart like mine. My heart cried out, thirsting for His nearness, His heart to beat in mine, His cleansing, His renewing of my heart.
May you be blessed as you listen. Even if our hearts are “twisted and broken”, He still offers us a “new heart”.
Please join me tomorrow, Monday, Oct. 17, for an “In Real Life” experience where I had the opportunity to meet one of my favorite bloggers and friend, Sharon of Sharon Sharing God. You’ll feel just like you were there by the ocean with us. Hope to see you then.
