The heart is more deceitful than all else

Would You Like the Best Heart Medicine?

"The heart is more deceitful than all else and is desperately sick; who can understand it? I, the LORD, search the heart, I test the mind, even to give to each man according to his ways, according to the results of his deeds" Jeremiah 17:9, 10 (New American Standard Bible).

When you have a self centered heart you are usually unhappy because there is emptiness in your heart. You are usually bitter because someone has better toys than you and angry because you want more but can not have it. This causes health problems.

When you give your heart to Jesus, He will fill you with a desire to share with others and to help others. This is the most rewarding and joyous lifestyle there is. When you give your heart to Jesus, He fills your heart with a longing to serve others, to develop a deep personal relationship with Him. The closer you evolve your relationship with Him, the more joyous and fulfilled your life becomes.

And all of you must put on the apron of humility, to serve one another; for the scripture says, ‘God resists the proud, but shows favor to the humble.’ 1 Peter 5:5 (The English Version)

Prayer: Oh Jehovah Jireh (The Lord our Provider) I admit that many times I have been self centered instead of Christ centered. Please forgive my selfishness. Please my beloved; bless me with an enthusiastic yearning to be obedient to Your dynamic plans for my life. In the name of our magnificent savior Jesus Christ I pray. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Hi femmflashpoint

Thank you.I believe so much of todays problems begin with self centeredness.

The Chinese love to have their childrens picture taken with a foriegner.Usually I have Moo Moo. She is a cow puppet. The chinese girls and women love her and always want their picture taken with her. When the children are shy I just bring out Moo Moo and the children are happy to have their pictute taken. Problem is, then all the parent want a picture with their children, moo moo and me.

God bless you.
