Friday’s Question

How do you rid yourself of a heavy heart?

In my experience it’s by depending on God not others, forgiving those who have harmed you and asking for forgiveness from those you have harmed.

Matthew 5:7 Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.

Matthew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.
Luke 6:31 Do to others as you would have them do to you.
Luke 6:37“Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
Hebrews 10:24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds,
Luke 6:35 But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.
Philippians 2:4 not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
Romans 12:18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.

To do this we must admit “all” to ourselves, leaving nothing out.  Start looking to others and encourage them and this will take our eyes off ourselves.  Forgiving others is not for them it’s for us.  

You will be amazed at how God’s promises will start flowing in.

Lord you know my heart right now!  You know what heaviness is hanging on for dear life.  You know, and only you know, what it’s going to take to rid myself of the heaviness.  I pray Lord that my every thought will be focused on  you and that you will guide my every step.  My one and only Savior! Amen!
