from head to heart

One head to heartof the first Christian books that I read was Beyond Our Selves by Catherine Marshall.  I found this book to be slow moving but I was greatly rewarded for  pressing through the novel-like narratives to the   tangible example how of God works intimately in our lives

One of the nuggets I found  in this book is :     If  it is our heart’s desire to obey God  then He will tend to our emotions.  We only need to make the decision (in our mind and as an act of our will) to obey God.

For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.__Philipians 2:13 KJV

Just writing about this verse, makes me think that now may be a good time for a re-read. lol  You see, we (I) can’t afford to wait until  we (I) heart bordered in blackfeel like doing what we (I ) know is right.

Because Jesus clothed Himself in human flesh  and walked among us for 33 years, He knows our frailties.  And He is willing to give us the “want to” or as Psalms 37:4 says, Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
