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

  1. So true, when we let those things into our heart only God can remove them. Love that scripture and the last line of psalm 139... "Lead me in the way everlasting." Thank you for this!

  2. I know I am guilty of a few cobwebs that are stubbornly clinging to the corners of my heart. If only I could take a broom & sweep them away!! You are right though, only God can clean them out. Thank you for such a spiritually insightful post. God bless!!!

  4. Reminds me of a song we sing,

    Search me, O Lord, and know my heart today.
    Try me, O Savior, and hear my thoughts I pray.

    Poignant post. Thank you.

  5. I was just about to go to bed, but I thought I would carry out a quick blog hop.

    I am quite delighted that I did, Linda.

    Like Pamela, this post reminded me of a song that I used to sing and will continue to sing now, as I go to bed.

    May the Lord reveal to me any hidden cobwebs.

    God bless you as you give food for thought!

  7. A Prayer From Jesus

    Jesus I brought this prayer to your people and they rejected it. So I added a comment on the importance of this prayer and your plan of Salvation, again no responses. Finally with fire and brimstone, mentioned their destination, it was as if they could not even hear.

    Jesus am I to be a profit as unto Jeremiah or like unto Jonah. I fell like Jonah, no matter what I want to do, You all ways command me to do this small task, deliver Your prayer. Except the results are as unto Jermiah. When not one obeyed when You said, they will find safety out of the city.

    Jesus, you created me as neither but one of power, in Jesus NAME. Devil in the NAME of JESUS I bind you in Jesus name. Release your hold on those who will be called, son's of Jesus. I command you in JESUS NAME to be gone from all who read this post, in Jesus Name. For the glory is yours alone Jesus. I lift your Name up in Praise now, Lord Jesus. Open my eyes in Jesus Name and let me receive from You, this very hour in JESUS NAME.

    - A PRAYER FROM JESUS -

    This prayer is from Jesus that we may hear from Him, that He may speak to our hearts. It only consist of three simple steps.

    1, We need to read one scripture. This will focus us in the word that brings everlasting life.

    2, Since this prayer is from Jesus we need to direct our prayer to Him personally. Too often Christian focuses they're prayer's to G_D or Father. Scripture proclaims, that Jesus should be the focus of our prayer.

    3, The simplest part of this Prayer is to ask Jesus one question. Please, all that is required for this question is that it should be simple. Let Jesus Himself finish the question when He gives you that understanding through this prayer.

    The PRAYER

    A) The scripture that is the focus of this prayer is "ACTS 2:38". It's not necessary to do any study into this scripture. Jesus will give you the understanding that will resonate in your heart. Just read Acts 2:38, keep it in your heart and take this one scripture to prayer

    B) The most important part of this prayer is that we need to direct our prayer directly to Jesus. If you normally would say Father in your prayer, change your focus from the Father to Jesus, by lifting Jesus name up every time you would normally use Father in your prayer.

    C) Maybe the hardest part of this prayer is the question that we need to ask Jesus. For man is always trying to understand the question, instead of listening to the answer. The simplest question is all that is required.
    Simply ask Jesus, 'WHY'?

    For those who are obedient
