I will give them an undivided heart
and put a new spirit in them;
I will remove from them their heart of stone
and give them a heart of flesh.
Ezekiel 11:19 niv
Over the years, there have been many hurts from friends and from family. It has sometimes been hard to not put the wall of defense up and little by little become a bit hard hearted for fear of the brunt of further hurts. However, as the scripture says, having a divided heart does not make for happy. Jesus teaches Love One Another, and even in the hurtful times, he is there to remind that to Love someone is a far better healing feeling for ourselves rather than the hardened heart. It only hurts ourselves. With a Loving Heart, the hurt melts away, we can move on, and even with the empathy that his spirit gives, we can understand where the hurt came from, and even perhaps the reason for it. He helps us to face life and ourselves for a more healthy being. We can distance ourselves from the source of any hurtful relationships, but in the knowledge that we hold no ill feelings, the hurt falls away. Sometimes, it isn't an easy process, but walking with Jesus always helps. His healing words as we read the Bible are like a balm to any wound that in times becomes invisible.
