31 Days to His Heart :: Hold Nothing Back

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!

 

Mark 12:28-30 (ESV)
And one of the scribes came up and heard them disputing with one another, and seeing that he answered them well, asked him, "Which commandment is the most important of all?" Jesus answered, "The most important is, 'Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.'

The journey to His Heart is one of commitment.

We cannot truly be on this journey unless it is THE journey of our lives.

Holding nothing back.

All that we have and are surrendered into His hands and when we lose the way we surrender again.  We rest continually in a place of bankruptcy, of empty, of broken, of bare, of nothing…without Him.  the wonders of His heart the only nutrients to satisfy.

This is how it must be if we take His heart for our own and have our own hearts become His. 

When we hold something of ourselves back from Him, we cannot not be swept up in the wild fury, the passion-filled river, the untamed roar of the waters of all that flows from Him.  His everlasting love, good~ness, mercy, grace in its fullness as our portion and cup—can only be drunk with the pure lips of a heart fully given. surrendered.  longing with everything and more.

He is infinitely patient as our steps falter, as we falter, but in His clear call to come there is no mistaking that it must be ALL of us that comes.

We say in our heart of hearts that this is our ultimate destiny, meaning, purpose and we are willing to sacrifice all else to see His Glory.  His Beauty.  His Heart.

Praying His Heart

Thank You, Lord, that you have made it so.  Your Heart can only be known by those who give You everything.  I rejoice that there is no half-way with you because You are highest and best and so can ask for no lower place in our lives than highest and best.

Oh Lord, seal this commitment to our hearts and root out where we are holding back from You.  Give us sweet and compelling glimpses of the Beauty, the Fury, the Uncontrollable rush of Your waters pouring over us as we lose ourselves in You, Your Heart.

Amen
