From the Kitchen Table

Day 34

So here’s what I think: The best thing you can do right now is to finish what you started last year and not let those good intentions grow stale. Your heart’s been in the right place all along. You’ve got what it takes to finish it up, so go to it. Once the commitment is clear, you do what you can, not what you can’t. The heart regulates the hands.  2 Corinthians 8:10-12 msg 

When our heart is a right place with God, our life will be also.  This life is lived from within: From faith with hope in love.  Once we have let our hearts fall in love with Jesus we can live from our hearts for Jesus.  This love involves a choice and a commitment.  When we choose to believe Jesus, not just believe in Jesus, we can commit our hearts’ love to Jesus.  We choose to love Him because He chose to love us, and we love that love God has for us.  This is essential to knowing and living in God’s will.  Doing God’s will requires that we desire God’s will.  Desire is what happens in love.  If we know what love is, we will reserve our love for what is true, trustworthy and timeless.  Jesus told us that out of the heart we speak and where our treasure is there our heart will be also.  When our heart is in love with Jesus, we can be free to follow it’s desires fearlessly.  God has made us to love fully, freely and fearlessly.  That only happens when His love fills our heart.  Be honest with what’s in your heart and you can be honest from your heart.
