Death to our hearts

Sometimes I find myself getting so caught up in the chaos and evil all around me, I can hardly stand it. Then I find myself trying to block it all out so it wonít affect me, but after a while of blocking the world out, I forget how to feel and how to love.

I forgot how to use my heart.

Without a heart, without love we are only the walking dead.

So what is God? He is love, and without God how do we love.
If we have no love inside us how do we show love?
Where are the fruits of the spirit?
Are they rotten or are they ripe and pure, sweet and full of flavor and character?

In my broken condition, I realized I had numbed myself to the world and forgot what I was here for, what I was living for. Iíd forgotten to love people, to care and pray for those lost, that they will soon be found. I realized life will turn you cold and before you know it youíll have no love inside just bitterness and hate.

The last few days, Iíve felt so miserable and wished I could runaway somewhere where my life would have meaning. Away from all the violence, evil, hate, drugs, addicts, and thieves that I find myself surrounded by.

But today as the sun shined down on my face, and I felt warmth in my heart, something Iíve been missing, I saw these people are just as cold and heartless with no feelings to spare for anyone else but themselves, and realized I was looking in a mirror.

I realized I look just like my enemy. So my mission today is to touch someone that is cold and needs warmth and light upon their face. Today I want to reach out to someone that just wants to be noticed. Today I will share Jesus.

Oh Dara - seek God & trust in Him with all your heart. You know I love you - keep writing

this is beautiful Dara, i don't know much about writing, so i guess your writing is good. but what i think is beautiful is what you are seeing. the grace of God. it is so easily overlooked. read 1 corinthians 1:4. Paul begins his letter to the church at corinth thanking God for His grace toward them. it may not seem all that unusual until you read the rest of that book. the church at corinth was completley jacked up, with all kinds of sin and problems, yet Paul was able to see God's grace in them. every day that a person has breath in there lungs is God's underserving grace. one more day to turn to Him. God's grace is everywhere. great job Dara. keep seeking Him. stay faithful, stay strong. uncle.
