The heart is a funny thing. I’m not referring the vital organ in your chest, but the place within you with which comes passion, fear, love, devotion and excitement. That place. The place that is stirred in the presence of God and melts at the experience of his love for us.
God has given us the ability to shut that place off, or keep it open. Most of us move back and forth between the two without realizing it. Usually we close up our hearts as a form of self-perseverance; sometimes we close off because of fear or due to the illusion of control. Sometimes we’re just broken or flat or dry. All of those things are okay, but they aren’t best. They’re not our inheritance.
