31 Days to His Heart :: The Great Beyond {Day #21}

31 Days Button

Thank you for visiting Fan the Flame!

I’m humbly treading the hallowed ground of the Heart of God for the 31 days of October.  First we look deep into the Beauty of His heart, shown through God the Father and His Son Jesus, then, we peer into the fragile and yet powerful role of our own hearts as we seek His and learn to live it in this world.  To read the entire series go{here} 31 Days to His Heart.

May YOU be blessed with a touch of Him TODAY…He who desires and is Fully Worthy of ALL of our hearts!


We’ve taken a few days to delve into the tragic story of the heart…how perfection was marred by pride, lies, hardening and fears, but, I am loving to now dwell on all that is Beyond…


There is a GREAT Beyond…

I am more and more mesmerized as all that is in me is brought ALIVE to it.

I have walked the tragic story of the heart and know all that knots it up and squeezes out the life, and messes with every emotion…

I know and have lived the devastation of the pride, the anger, the fear, the grief, the hardness, the doubts…all of that mad mess…

And more and more I am seeing almost instantly, as though all else that drudges up is but the finest vapor…

His Heart.

Beyond everything is His Heart.  Reaching, oozing, pouring, spilling, shedding, flowing Heart.  The Heart of God that can never be outrun or pushed away or missed when deepest self desires what alone can satisfy.

Beyond everything that would strip bare and break down and crush and make you think that none of it is good, is simply His Heart.  An infinite depth of everlasting love and goodness and mercy and grace and HOPE…oh, the sweet taste of hope. 

I smell the sea and it is full of all He longs to give and it beckons my soul to run for it—this beyond where death is no longer and tears are dried and the Son is all the Glory and He asks to come now and touch eternity.

Beyond all of the beyonds of every path and road and journey and dream and wish and prayer is the Greatest of All.  Him.  His Heart.  Clear and True and Oh, so, so real.


Praying His Heart

“For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named,that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth,and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us,  to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”

~ Ephesians 3 : 14-21
