02 Feb Understanding Heart
Thank you for returning to the Shamelessly Saved productions blog. We appreciate those of you who have given positive feedback and have helped to share our positive message with the rest of the community.
I’m sure most of you by now have noticed a common theme within founder Charmette Jones’ latest book and stage play; the heart. The novel “My Heart and The Holy Spirit Surrounded by Hell” and stage play “My Heart and Hope” teaches readers and viewers the importance of having a clean and pure heart in order to ensure that God’s will is being manifested in your life. Read this interesting analogy we came up with that ties into the word HEART.
H- Humble; having and showing a modest or low estimate of one’s own importance.
- How did reading the definition of humble make you feel? It can be easy to misinterpret the meaning of this word by thinking that it is suggesting you have no confidence or importance. Of course this can’t be any further from the truth. We have to think about this on a spiritual level. We are all lost and lowly in God’s eyes but due to his unfailing mercy, he still loves us! In order to have a pure heart, we must humble ourselves unto God. Put that pride aside!
E- Enduring; to remain firm under suffering or misfortune without yielding.
- Physically speaking, the heart is the strongest organ in the body. It continues to pump the blood through our veins no matter what condition our bodies are in. We could even become brain dead and our hearts will still continue to beat. Our hearts continue to endure and we should relate this to our spiritual selves as well. In order to have a pure heart, we will have to endure much. But glory be to God! The Lord will always have the final say if we submit unto him.
A –Abundance; plentifulness of the good things of life; prosperity.
- The following quote from the bible is super important. “Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks”. We must have sincere and pure hearts filled with positivity and life, because if we have nothing but negativity in our hearts we will produce nothing but evil in not only our lives but the lives around us as well. Take a moment to check yourself! Do you have resentment and harshness in your heart? Ask God to get rid of it for you so that you may begin to live in the abundance of positivity that God wants for you.
R- Restorative; having the ability to restore health, strength, or a feeling of well-being.
- The wonderful thing about the strength of our hearts is knowing that no matter what obstacles we go through in life, it can always be restored. This is where forgiving yourself and others comes in to play. You can’t have a clean heart if you hold grudges against yourself and others. You must remember that your heart can be restored through the wonderful works of our Lord and savior.
T- Truth; without deception and always seeking honesty at all times.
- One cannot stress enough how important it is to walk in honesty and truth if you want to keep a pure heart in the eyes of God. Jesus is the truth and the light! He has never been, will never be and can never be a lie. It’s simple. If you’re walking in truth then you are headed on the path of righteousness with God. If not, then you are walking in lies and deceit and that will only result in death.
