Simple but true. The heart tells our story. And… God’s heart is always for us never against.
The humble have seen it and are glad; You who seek God, let your heart revive. – Psalm 69:32
Do you see it?
Half a heart outlined in the sand, the other though covered is present but not seen?
I see God’s heart.
I see God made it as only He can.
I see a reminder of what Christ has done.
I see the Holy Spirit continuously sanctifying within.
I see a merging of His Heart pouring into mine.
I see it involves surrender, obedience.
I see God calling, wooing.
I see it is God who intentionally pursues, chases, engulfs.
I see His Presence in the most unexpected, surprising ways.
I see it is Almighty God, the Creator of the heavens and earth who made the ultimate provision beyond our understanding, Jesus.
I see Jesus came to cover, uncover our sin which easily entangles.
I see Freedom.
I see Hope, new beginnings, Jesus washing away and cleansing from sin.
