There are lots of things in this world that could harden our hearts. We see sad news on a regular basis. We may even have personal experiences that hurt our hearts and turn them to "stone." Even in the midst of all these things, we have hope in a new heart!
Instead of allowing our hearts to become stone, we need to turn to God. God is prepared to refresh us, to give us a new heart and a renewed spirit. God can show us His love and allow us to feel and express this love in the world around us. When we accept God's presence in our lives and the new hear that He provides, we can be ready to show love and compassion to others!
Allow God to give you a new heart to show His love and compassion in the world!
Thank You for giving me a new heart. Help me to keep my heart focused on You. In Christ's name I pray, amen.
