Open the Eyes of My Heart Lord
The heart is absolutely, positively, unequivocally and undeniably everything. It really is. It truly is. It is the most important thing to God. The very most important thing. Nothing else even comes close. It guides us through so much in life. It is what matters the most to God. It is indeed where we get the closest to Him. Without the heart we are so very far from God. He gives us the innate ability to indeed use our hearts. Using them in everyday situations and circumstances. Let my heart be open to You always Lord. He always uses His heart. The Bible says that wherein lies your treasure that your heart will be there also. If you contemplate that it is obviously true. It is definitely true. Ultimately we feel all things with our heart. We do things with our heart. All things and everything. It comes down to what is the most important thing to you? Well, what is it? What is valuable to you? What is it that matters to you the most? What is important to you? Why is it important to you? Is it a person, a place or a thing, something material or tangible or is it God almighty? God knows our heart. He made us. He knows everything about us. I mean everything. He knows our every desire. He knows our every want. He knows our every need. He knows our every intention. Wherein lies our heart? That is the biggest question of all for each and every one of us. The prayer should always be "Open the eyes of my heart Lord". Let me see as You see. Please keep my eyes open to Your ways. Then and only then can we really use that heart that God gave us. It is another one of his amazing gifts bestowed upon us. Please make me the very best person that I can become. Make me one of Your vessels. Make me an instrument of Your peace. Make me see things as You and only You see them. Use me for Your purpose and for Your goodness. Then and only then will I be truly blessed. Sometimes it will be when there is great turbulence, a storm or great trouble or tribulation in our lives. Do you turn to Him in those times? It takes incredible faith to indeed do so. Not just words but the actions that accompany and follow that strong faith. If I can just be a little bit like Him I will be abundantly blessed and I will be a blessing to others as well. I truly will. It will happen that way because that is God's way. It may not be such an easy thing but that is how He wants us.
That should ultimately be our goal. To in fact bless others around you. I truly believe that we can bless others simply by the actions and examples of using our hearts. What better example could there ever be? There is nothing better than that. Absolutely nothing. You can be a wonderful role model without even trying to be one. Pretty amazing when you think about it. The heart can achieve things that the mind can only think about achieving. So when it comes right down to it the heart will be the part of a person that matters the most. It will ultimately display our true character and it will reveal that character. It will display our courage sometimes even under the most difficult of circumstances. Open the eyes of my heart, Lord. Let God work in that heart. Using our hearts first in every situation will always be the correct path for us to indeed take. When my eyes are open I only become even more and more humble by this wonderful gift He has bestowed on all of us. It is agape love like no other. So open those eyes and you will be amazed that your belief makes you see not the other way around. God's love is the greatest of all. Nothing compares to His love. What would Jesus do? Maybe a better question would be what would Jesus have me do? What would He have you do. So let us open those eyes of our heart to all and in all situations and all circumstances. It will make all of the difference in your life and in those whose lives you can effect. Use your heart all of the time for all time. We need to use our hearts each and every day. That is what we should aspire to. That should be how we spend our time. That should be our ultimate goal. Here are some verses on the heart:
