31 Days to His Heart :: How He is Making All Things New in Our Hearts {Day 29}

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!

Isaiah 40:11, 31 (ESV)
He will tend his flock like a shepherd;
he will gather the lambs in his arms;
he will carry them in his bosom,
   and gently lead those that are with young.
they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength;
   they shall mount up with wings like eagles;
they shall run and not be weary;
   they shall walk and not faint.
How does He make all things new in us? our hearts?
He carries us.  Close to His Heart.  In His arms He takes our crippled and crumbling, bleeding and broken, fearful and fallen and breathes life, making whole, one breath at a time.
With each beat of our hearts held in His bosom He is resuscitating the deadness and renewing the wasted.  He is making our heart places altogether lovely.
It isn’t like a magic wand but like the weight of His love, sacrificing Himself for all that we cannot do or be, filling our hollow hearts with His Glory.
And it isn’t all of us changed in an instant {though, One Day, YES, forever and ever it will be so}.  Rather it is all of our emptying and inadequacy and inability to do anything to love Him falling on Him and His mercy and grace in each tiny little moment and way.
This is how all becomes new and the impossible becomes possible and we sing from that deep soul place of Him alone.  His Grace.  All His work.  and for His Glory Alone.
Praying His Heart
Oh Lord, Praise You for how You carry us.  In all we cannot do or be and as helpless lambs You hold us close and make us new to live this life for You.  You give us all we need to breathe with the beat of Your Heart and in Your transforming power within us to reach out and touch the world.
May more and more of who we are be given to ALL that You are and Your breath give us our only life and strength.  Oh, hear our heart’s deepest cry, we pray.
