Mark 3: 5 And he looked around at them with anger, grieved at their hardness of heart, and said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” He stretched it out, and his hand was restored.
One of the indicators I have come to notice for a soft heart is if it is able to break or be moved by others.
If a close friend can hurt your heart or a small gesture of kindness can make you joyful, I would say you have a healthy heart.
A heard a song yesterday called Hallelujah by Johnny Stimpson and one verse in it goes: “Sing it: hallelujah, for the good times
Hallelujah, for the bad
I am thankful for the heartbreak
Because I know it just won’t last
If the good Lord takes me home tomorrow
Then I can rest and know that it’s all in His hands
Sing hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, amen (hallelujah, hallelujah)”
When heartbreak comes I know it won’t last. It’s one thing to know it but when you feel heartbreak it’s hard to survive on that wisdom alone. But eachtime we take ahit because we care and love, our resilience grows, our hearts beat as our Father’s does.
A Father who is constantly mocked, abandoned and hated daily by millions and whose heart breaks to see the pains we cause one another.
I pray for pur hearts to be softened to those around us as we lean on the outpouring of love from our King
