A Poem for Thought

 

Heart Condition

Hearts from deep within your life define
Even in the making of decisions known
A place where your soul align
Reiterating there what has grown
To your being what you have assign

Condition of heart to this world shown
Only you with the Lord can make shine
Noting with the Lord you're not alone
Decisions then together made to be fine
In keeping preserved what God sewn
Trusting in Him to guide you divine
In this world where His blood was thrown
Opening your heart to Him was His design
Noting your heart condition is where the soul is sown

(An Acrostic poem here, where the first letter of each line spells "Heart Condition") 

 Thoughts: As God transforms our heart to beat more for Him, our decisions will direct more towards His will in reflecting His character. "The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together" (Romans 8:16-17, NKJV). Because we have free will, we need to be doing our part to guard our heart in making sure the out flow is that of a Christ like being. This sometimes can be done by removing the noise of this world that would contaminate our heart. "Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life" (Proverbs 4:23. NKJV). Sometimes we need moments of silence in His presence where God can reach deep inside our heart to bring forth springs of life. Sitting with our Bible in a peaceful place and meditating, allowing the noise of this world to escape our being, can and does improve our heart's condition.
