Keep your heart soft.

“Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.” Matthew 5:8

Lord, keep my heart soft
don’t let it become hardened
brick hardened
keep it softened to You
while you keep my face set like a flint
while you keep my feet planted like an oak
while you keep my arms reaching
and reaching
and reaching
out like branches
don’t let what’s happening
outside of me
get inside of me, God
guard my heart
and the innermost parts
of my being
you are my shield
you are my shield
yes Lord, you alone are my shield

My sister, I don’t know what you’re going through, but God does. If you put a woman through enough hurtful situations, she can begin to transform into someone she’s not. No matter what you’ve endured, decide right now today that your faith will remain in God, your heart will remain soft for Him and your arms will keep reaching out to help others. Keep your heart turned towards God and He will keep your heart soft towards Him.

My prayer for you…Lord, I pray for your daughter who is reading this right now. If she can relate to the poem, Lord, I pray you minister to her heart…deeply. I pray you don’t let what’s happening outside of her, get inside of her. With everything in me Father I pray you be her shield. Stand guard in her heart and in her mind. Protect her Lord. Her life is in your hands. Her heart is in your hands. Don’t let her become someone she’s not. Help her to stay true to who you made her to be in Christ. Help her discover more and more your heart for her and your character. Keep her, Father. In the name of Jesus. In the name of Jesus. In the name of Jesus.
