31 Days to His Heart :: Our Hearts Become His {Day 25}

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!

John 14:20-23 (ESV)
In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you.  Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him." Judas (not Iscariot) said to him, "Lord, how is it that you will manifest yourself to us, and not to the world?" Jesus answered him, "If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.”
This is why we have come.
This is why we keep coming.
This is why we stay…to be changed.
We receive His Heart as we abandon all else and throw ourselves upon Him, bloody and bruised, battered and beaten.
We cannot truly come to know His affection WITHOUT it becoming our affection.
We learn that what we thought limited us, really doesn’t.
There is no limit to our love as we receive His.
There is no limit to the holy emotion given as we behold.
There is no limit to the relationships we seek as He makes His home in us.
There is no limit to the good we become as clay in His Heart-Hands.
There is no limit to the mercy we have for a hurting, dying, broken world when we know the depth of His compassion FOR US.
There is no limit to the grace we offer others when we swim in the ocean that flows from His fullness.
We come to His Heart that we might open a way for others to come, too, as they see the here-and-now living it out in and through us GLORY that He is.
There can be no other result, no other experience of truly coming than to be changed into His likeness and glory, glory, glory dwells in Immanuel’s Land.
Praying His Heart
With every breath we take and every beat of our heart we pray that shrivels up and dies more and more of the hearts we were given as sons of Adam…and that in place of all of this lack we receive the fullness of You.  Your Heart. 
We plead to NOT LET US go another step without this heart surgery…without being changed.  This hurting world is desperate for Your touch through those who bear YOUR HEART…Change us, oh change us, we pray.
