At The Heart of It

July 4, 2009 — 5 Comments

Over two thousand years ago, King David the King of Israel wrote, ” Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.”  

The word heart is used to describe the starting place or the center (the core) of your thoughts, beliefs, values, motives and convictions.  Guard this more than anything else, because from here your life’s meaning, purpose and fulfillment flow.

Who or what is at the heart of your life?

As we connect on this blog site, I thought it would be a good idea to share with you, who and what is at the heart of my life.  Here are a few thoughts: 

There is a God.  He created the heavens and the earth, He created you and me and He loves us more than we can understand.  The core desire of His heart is to have a meaningful relationship with us. 

He has revealed himself and made provision for this relationship through Jesus Christ.

The whole world was designed as a stage for this relationship, so the more we cultivate it and align ourselves with God and His way of thinking, the more we align ourselves with the way things work in the world.  Following God’s principles for your finances tends to lead to better financial success.  Knowing His ideas about relationships will help your family.  The same is true in the workplace, in the neighborhood…wherever you go.  It all goes back to the cornerstone relationship~~~you and God.

I remember as a teenager searching for the truth, one night we were standing out on the street corner in front of my friend’s house, looking up into the star filled sky, I said a simple prayer:  Surely God if you are real and you have made all of this, then you must have the capability of revealing yourself and the truth to me.  I don’t need to know and understand it all, however you should be able to reveal enough for me to know without any doubt that it is you.  Please reveal yourself to me.

And He has…and He does…

Who or what is at the heart of your life?

  1. That was great Daddy! Very though provoking. Its neat, because last night Lou Engle talked about how our thought life dictates our lives and said this quote (I’m sure you’ve heard it before):
    Our thoughts reap actions. Our actions reap habits. Our habits reap a lifestyle and our lifestyle reaps our destiny!
    Live for Him and your destiny is set!
    Love you 🙂

  3. Robin you have shared something so true that the world does not even want to recognize that if we allow our thoughts to nest on our head, then stored in our hearts, then will result in our actions… that is why I always ask God to keep my heart from all evil thoughts… and if any of those bad thoughts come into my mind, I apply what in the Bible says that we must take captive to the obedience of Christ, or rather, put them in prayer and give those thoughts to Christ so that way he is faifhfull to remove them from our lives.

    Thanks for sharing this message! Have a nice week.

  4. Wow, Robin it’s awesome….it was so inspiring, that’s what i truly missed.. your words, your inspirations. Thank God for this technology we have nowadays ,in many ways we can still hear HIS message. I miss our Tuesday meetings, the inspiring passages, and the sharing. May God bless you more so you will be more blessings to others! I love the song too, it’s nice to listen while contemplating in his words.
    Thanks for everything again and again! Regards to Edna and Jillian.
