31 Days to His Heart :: What This All Could Mean? {Day 31…final day!}

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!

 

Joel 2:10-14

The earth quakes before them;
   the heavens tremble.
The sun and the moon are darkened,
   and the stars withdraw their shining.
The LORD utters his voice
   before his army,
for his camp is exceedingly great;
he who executes his word is powerful.
For the day of the LORD is great and very awesome;
who can endure it?

"Yet even now," declares the LORD,
"return to me with all your heart,
with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning;
and rend your hearts and not your garments."
Return to the LORD your God,
for he is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love;
and he relents over disaster.
Who knows whether he will not turn and relent,
   and leave a blessing behind him,
a grain offering and a drink offering
   for the LORD your God?

Why have we come? 

We have come to His Heart because there is no other source of life.

We have come to be changed by the weight of His love, grace, and mercy.

But have we come only for ourselves?

No, this cannot be the sole motivation or result of truly coming.

As we come and live from His heart, we receive it and we give away all that we are given that this world might become a different place.

We come to change the face of the world.

We come with all of our hearts, the fullness of our ability to feel and know in the depths, so that we might live and move and have our being in Him and His heart.  In so living we reflect His image brilliantly in the world.  And as we pour out His love-light, all that the world was created to be—in full relationship with Him--is reconciled bit by bit to this glorious vision.

That is what I call greatness.  A greatness bound up in a God who will never disappoint, but always supply, sustain, and shower upon His beloved children the light of His Face.

Praying His Heart

Oh Lord, we come with all that we are and all that we long to be.  We come to You, the only Source of Life.  We come to bring You to the world and see smiles of joy upon what was sadness.

Teach us to number our days according to the knowledge of Your Heart.  We pray that we would long for Zion and that we would give our lives to see this world draw close to You and where You are.

Praise You for all YOU infinitely give…We Love You and long to wrap ourselves around the knowledge of Your Heart of Love…

May Your work in us be far from done and Your work of reconciling this world be our heart’s greatest reason to live…that Your Glory might shine in All the Earth!

Amen and Amen
