Around ten years ago I read something that started me thinking.
A woman shared online about finding Christ to be the ‘Love of our Hearts’. Being the granddaughter of a man who said ‘What does the Bible say?’ to my mother when she was young, I wondered if such a concept was Biblical. :) It didn’t take long for me to discover there was a bit of spiritual backing to the concept.
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with ALL thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.” (Matthew 22:37, emphasis mine)
That did it for me. I took it to the Lord in prayer. I already knew the Lord as my Savior, but I wanted to know Him as the greatest Love of my Heart.
That very simple application of Matthew 22:37 was a major milestone for me as a woman. As the years went on I identified verses on Who the Lord Is and was intentional about thanking/praising Him for those things. I even had the opportunity to see Him show Himself to be my Provider, Protector, Comfort, and Leader (to name a few) in real life situations. What started as a prayer request and an intentional pursuit, resulted in my heart being captivated by Jesus Christ!
It is so easy for us as young women to think that a certain job, marriage, adventure or friends will bring us satisfaction. But there is only One who can ultimately satisfy our hearts and souls: Jesus Christ. It takes intentional investment – and it will all our lives. Some moments, I live with a smile in the glorious adventure of life with Christ. Other moments I discover my heart needs a refresh. But when that happens, the good news is, I know right where to go! My Savior is always available for SOS calls and heart to heart talks. (The Word and prayer. :) Yes…He is absolutely wonderful!!
So, my question for you today is, who has your heart?
Let it be Christ. He’s the One Who satisfies.
“Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you. I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands. My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you.” Psalm 63:3-5
