Caring for the Heart “Power” Perspective ~by Diana Asaad

Luke 21:34 (NIV) “Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap.


Power Perspective: What does caring for the heart really mean? Well, no simple answer can be found, partly because God gave us each a unique heart, with distinct needs, so there is no one size fits all solution. There are however clues and direction that can be found in the Bible. I do think that the verse above has some rare evidences that can begin to bring clarity. Take care that your heart isn’t weighed down, with all these worldly things that make no eternal difference. Too often, we want the power to control our circumstances, that we disregard that true strength comes from releasing our hearts to their Creator, the magnificent Maker that so lovingly, orchestrated every nuance of our being. Instead of being lured by the trap of this world and shouldering all of our cares, lets bring them to the One our heart has been searching for all along. Jesus.


Relatable Resources: One particular blog that I follow and enjoy is Ann Voscamp’s She has a way of shifting perspectives that I often need, I think you will find her words valuable.


Applicable Advise: Although our hearts can become easily troubled and overly encumbered, we are not alone. First, invite Jesus into your heart; whatever the state. He longs for nothing more than to embrace the confusion and love you to wholeness. Trust Him, He knows what He is doing. And you won’t surprise Him with your mess. He’s got this covered. Secondly, know that we are here to encourage and support you however we can. You are not alone. We are a tribe. A tribe of distorted, misshaped, beat-up, bruised, and healing hearts, connecting for the greater good. Drop us a line. We’d love to help…

You are loved…sweet sister.
