Webs of the Heart
Anyone that knows me knows that I am a fanatic when it comes to a clean house. So imagine my surprise when I found this spider web. Pulling back the curtain to allow some light into the room, there it was. This comparison quickly came to my mind as did the scripture.
How often do the webs of life form on our hearts? Webs like hurt, unforgiveness, and doubt. By the looks of the spider web it had to have been there for awhile. How often do we simply overlook the webs forming on our heart? With ease I will remove the web from the curtain but not so easily are the webs of the heart cleaned away. We must call in the Master of cleaning hearts to get this job done…
Father, search me and know my heart; test me and know the webs of my heart. Clean away the webs that time has left, the ones that have gone unnoticed for far too long. Create in me a pure (clean) heart. Give to me a steadfast spirit, a steadfast desire to seek you. Give to me a steadfast spirit to know you more. Amen (let it be)…
Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Ps. 139:23
Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Ps. 51:10
Who am I? I am a princess. For my Father is the King of kings and Lord of lords. This statement is of great importance because I was not always a princess. Once I was simply a lost soul dwelling in a pit. Then one day all things in my life changed. My Father, God reached down and lifted me from the pit giving me new life. In Him, I have found peace, love and hope. This is my greatest role by far for in it I find joy to be all the titles that follow me. Finish reading about me in my pages listed above.
