The Heart – One True Editor

17 Sep

They say time heals all wounds and for the most part it does. God has created in us a system that helps heal our hurts and stresses, broken bones, heartaches and just about anything else that causes hurt in our bodies and minds. It is the heart! Our heart, mixed with a little love, is the great editor of hurt and distress for our soul.

Psalms 147:3 He heals the broken hearted and bandages their wounds. When we turn our wounds and hurts to Him, He gives us peace and comfort. I don’t think we fully realize the depth of His love for us. I know we don’t realize the enormous power of love, whether it is His love for us or even our love for each other.

When Jesus gave us the commandment to love our neighbors as He has loved us, it was to open the door for us to see others as He has. Love is the key to all things and because of that it is the most powerful emotion and trait we have been blessed with.

I remember Grandfather telling me when I was about 7 years old that every happening, great and small, is a parable whereby God speaks to us, and the art of life is to get the message. Then added every act of kindness and love we do is showing His love within us to others, giving them a unique look inside our heart. The heart will, with love, rewrite our hurt and pain so it doesn’t seem so harsh. It will, over time, help us see things in a different light – His light.

I am reminded of when he told me to listen to my mind, but to follow my heart. God resides inside our hearts and provides wonderful guidance for us, if we choose to follow. He set the example for us, through His son Jesus, and asks us to use that example in our everyday life. He taught forgiveness, unequivocal love and compassion for everyone.

He gave us free will, so we make our own decisions on our life events. Forgiving others for a wrong is a choice, if we choose the path of love and forgive our heart is filled with joy. If we chose the other path, we continue to carry it’s pain with us. Why choose to carry that burden? Let your heart heal the hurt, let love in and push the pain out.

Because the indwelling Christ resides in us, God is literally establishing His rule in the world through us. As we say yes to God and live our lives in agreement with Him, He lives, rules, and reigns through us everywhere we go and in everything we do. Thus He also takes our pain and suffering from us therefore making our heart the best editor for our memories.

When you put it all together you realize how powerful love is and how important it is that we forgive others as He forgave us. Knowing we are the only bible some people will ever see makes shining our light even more important. Love is the light of the world and it is never wasted.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love,

Ed
