Open Heart

We can open our hearts to what the Lord is saying. He is speaking words of love and instruction that emanate from His Word and His Holy Spirit. His love for us tugs at our hearts, as He desires for us to be close to Him. Our first response may be to create fences around our hearts out of fear of what our future holds, if we were to accept Jesus into our hearts. We may wonder what really lies ahead if I were to surrender my ways for His ways. We may anxious about releasing control of the details of our lives for something different. An open heart is a first step of faith that allows us to receive the abundant life He desires for us. He came that we may have an abundant life that provides peace, love and joy and puts on a journey to fulfill our purpose. Our purpose is beyond ourselves. It is to be of service to Him and to others. It is beyond who we are today but creates a God-given vision of who He intends for us to be. We can open our hearts to what the Lord is saying. We can put aside every pre-conceived notion about living a Godly life and put our trust in Him. The relationship starts with an open heart, acknowledging the Savior, repenting of the sin our lives and a commitment to walk with Him. This decision is not about “church”, it is about you and God. We can open our hearts to what the Lord is saying and receive His Son Jesus Christ into our hearts today.

Dear Jesus,

We come today with an open heart. I know I am a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe you died for my sins and rose from the dead. I trust and follow you as my Lord and Savior. Guide my life and help me to do your will.

In your powerful name,
