A New Heart

The heart is an interesting organ.
Delicate and small, it is the most vital part of your body.
Working every second to pump blood and oxygen, it brings life to you.
Intricately designed with patterns of veins and tissues, it is an amazing sight to behold.
A person intrigued with the art of science will probably tell you that.

Science put aside, the heart is also where we keep all the deepest emotions and feelings.
All the past hurts, happiness and memories. It is like a huge hard disk that stores every single agenda since the day you were born.

Have you ever woken up suddenly with the past haunting you?
Or you ever literally felt heart pain piercing through your chest because of a hurt so painful that it is choking you?
Have you ever watched a movie and cried like a baby because it reminded you of the wounds you carry.
Have you ever been abused so badly as a child that you still carry the scars in you unknowingly and your current relationships are hurting because you let the scars manifest?

All of us have been hurt one way or another
It is only human that we will feel the hurts and sadness
Many of us however carry these hurts like sackbags and carry them all throughout our life
The files of grudges that never seem to be erased from your hard disk: your heart.

If you do, your heart will be overloaded and congested with a thousand expired files that are no longer relevant. It's not  even usable or beneficial. It makes your heart slow and malfunctioning. Remember when you crash your computer because you have too many unwanted files waiting to be thrown into the recycle bin.

Many of us might even be unaware of these trashy files of grudges, unforgiveness and wounds of past hurts that we are bringing into our future.

Ask God to bring you back and heal you of all your hurts, starting right from the womb.
Ask God to restore you and reveal to you anyone that you need to forgive. Perhaps it is you yourself that you need to forgive.
Ask God to cleanse you of your sins. There is no sin too big that God cannot forgive. Look at the cross. His mercy is that great. Read up on His Divine Mercy and doubt no longer.
Finally, ask God to give you a new heart. It is better than detoxing as some residues may still remain.

God loves you and He needs your heart.
You may have given Him your time and money and talents but have you given Him your heart?

He longs for you to live in fullness and abundant joy.
Allow Him to take full control of your heart.

Ezekiel 36:26
 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh
