Soften My Heart, Lord

by | Feb 9, 2023 | New Life, Relationship

“And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.”

(Ezekiel 36:26 ESV)

“I will give them a heart to know that I am the Lord, and they shall be my people and I will be their God, for they shall return to me with their whole heart.”

(Jeremiah 24:7 ESV)

Things not your way? Life getting rough? Take a look at your life. Have your hardened your heart towards the Lord? Maybe it’s you have hardened your heart towards life. It’s time to examine your life and see what is going wrong. Maybe it’s time to have an attitude adjustment.

I have been there and after I took a long look at my life, I realized I strayed away from my walk with God. Once I repented and softened my heart again, things turned around again. The Lord doesn’t want us to hold grudges or to judge others. Things like that will only cause us to harden our hearts towards others and God. I caught myself judging someone and once I figured it, I saw him in different. A friend and I had a discussion about him. She said maybe he just wanted to feel useful. Once I thought about, I realized I was judging him and I repented. My heart has softened toward him. 

Maybe it is something as simple as that for you. Are you judging someone? Are you mad at God for something? Take a good long look at your life and figure it out before your heart gets too hard. If it gets too hard, it may take awhile to soften it again.

Have a great day everyone.
