“Keep thy heart with all diligence; For out of it are the issues of life.”
So yesterday I was asked a question, the question was- who sits on the throne of your heart? This is something that I have learned this week and that really hit me hard. I asked myself this question. Now I have to admit I love God with all my heart and all my soul, but I’d be ashamed to admit ... I’m not sure I’ve placed Hiin the throne of my heart every day. If I did, Worry, fear, doubt, relationships and a plethora of other things wouldn’t take up my thoughts or my emotions.
Now of course were human and we’re going to struggle with many areas and all types of emotions! But if God is at the center - he will control every chamber of our heart or lead us back to where we need to be or be mediating on!
We need to invite him to sit there every day because that’s truly all he wants, he wants our heart! You guys all know I have shared my walk of faith and fitness as often as I can. When I heard that question my heart broke because I realized I subconsciously I have put him in the cocaptains spot on many occasions! As I’ve been working on my mindset and asking myself constantly through the day what I’m thinking about- it is helped me be conscious of what I need to meditate on and what’s flowing from my heart!
Now maybe this doesn’t make sense to some people and maybe I’m not expressing it the right way. However thoughts become our actions and so if they are not fixed on what they should be, our actions will follow and if we’re real with ourselves will realize- He needs to be placed there every second of every day. He knows what’s best and how to reach out purpose! If we’re not spending time with him and grow we get a relationship with it, how was he going to direct us?
There’s no one in this world that’s ever going to love us as much as he does and he proved that with the worst sacrifice any father could ever do.
So, today I leave you with all the same question, who is sitting in the throne of your heart?
