Heart Change

A Story by Philip Young

A Daily Devotional


🌧 Rainy Afternoon Views ¯_( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)ง-]�"- 🩸

“♥️ change” ✍️ .. (Proverbs 16:1)

“When it feels like surgery, & it burns like 3rd degree, & you wonder what is it worth?” (- Daigle & Foreman)

Heart change sucks. - 😖 - No shortcuts in preparation 4 heart transplants. The endurance 4 the transfer comes only from the Good Lord Yes He will empower our will 🦁 to surgery as we show faithful enough 2 change. A loving Father always does.

“My son, give me your heart and let your eyes �'� delight in my ways..” (-Proverbs 23:26)

Human natures attempt to convince us otherwise but in truth our new heart is a grace donation. A sensible gift 🎁 from the Almighty Father. Our Human Natures will scream .. 😱 this is B.S! - For .. “..the SPIRIT wars against the FLESH” .. Heres the buckle though; you just cant love 2 masters. One being your own. Dang! Always a catch! Loving ourselves “is 2 be @ enmity” with a jealous God, & loving 🥰 God is SUBMISSIVE. If we love our Father we obey his commands. What the heck did you just say!? Ummmmm ..

.. Jesus drops this little piece on us in..(Matthew 16) - “Deny Yourself, pick up your cross & follow me”. Our humanity pulls toward denying this love 4 a false sense of control. But no worries friends, 😉 faith is acceptance; our dependance on God is the promise of rest as the Lord steals the show. In so many words. When he answers, the bondages of this life ease out. - “..my yoke is easy & my burden is light..” (Matthew 12:28) Gods Spirit “yearns” to free our imprisoned & self seeking minds. Know what I mean?! .. spiritual things. Eternal things.🩸Real untapped wisdom comes only from God.

God is good to us & a little taste of the heart change outweighs the fear of giving up control. So a little dab will do ya 🌝. Trust is born! Gods purpose 4 our lives is far greater than anything you we be terrified of letting go of. -[#Facts] #truth 1.0

Odds are you havent even pondered the possibilities! Our visions are blurred by the smokescreens of our own self seeking .. �'�

But thats un-natural? The Almighty says .. “As the heavens are higher than the Earth 🌍 so are my ways higher than your ways & my thoughts than your thoughts” (Isaiah 55:9)

RIDING THE FENCE is confusing anyway, it causes us to blame others, God and live the worldly delusion.. How do you know Philly boy? Jesus brother writes .. “but where envy & self seeking exist confusion & every evil thing are there.” Our efforts 2 hold on trip us up .. It is written “.. but to those who ‘will not listen’, “The stone which the builders rejected Has become the chief cornerstone,” & “A stone of STUMBLING And a rock of OFFENSE.” They stumble, being disobedient to the word, to which they also were appointed. (-1 Peter 2:7-8 -) In other word stay in sync with Gods words if you want Holy Ghost �'�guidance..

Playing the outcome is pointless. We speak the words we desire 2 by hand of a loving relationship with our creator. The exchange is a 2 way street so preparation is on us, as in any relationship.

乾杯 / Kanpai. [“Cheers”]. Have a blessed afternoon ☕️..

“The preparation of the heart belongs to man. But the answer of the tongue is from the Lord.”

(Proverbs 16:1) 🍁 Food 🥩 4 �'� Thought.
