The Lost Heart

At Christmas time last year my husband gave me a beautiful heart shaped diamond ring and said when he gave it to me “You will always have my heart.” Oh my goodness how sweet is he? Well just a few days ago when I looked down at my heart ring from my husband and realized the heart was missing from the setting.

Oh No!!! I immediately started to back track. Where had I been? What had I done? I had spent some time working in the garden. I had gone to the garden store and bought some plants, came home and potted them up so that heart could be anywhere. I looked through the house but then I had to attend a Faith Lift meeting so I was off.. On my way there in tears I called my husband and told him I had lost his heart. I was so devastated, and he said to me “It’s ok honey, it’s not my real heart. You will never lose that.” AWWW!!!

I am so thankful for that and how precious it is that he gave me his heart over 33 years ago and I thought you know God also has given us His heart it says in Eze 36:26a and 27. ”I will give you a new heart and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart. And I will put My Spirit in you so that you will follow my decrees and be careful to obey my regulations.” If the new spirit was His then it stands to reason that the new heart was as well.

Jesus in John 13:34 says “A new commandment I give you that you love one another as I have loved you.” That would be an impossible task if He had not given us His heart and His Spirit to accomplish it.

Even though I lost that diamond heart, a heart of stone. (I imagine that’s another lesson in itself) lol It is a blessing to know we will never lose His heart or His Spirit for He has given it to His children as an everlasting covenant through Jesus Christ His Son and He has promised we will never lose them in Heb 13:5b “Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you.”

Thank you Father for the amazing gift of Your heart and Your Spirit through the amazing gift of Your Son. I praise You Lord for those awesome gifts from Your loving heart. ;)

    Well, Beth, as I tried to correct my spelling on my comment it disappeared! So I’ll try again, please excuse my incompetence. You know, Beth, that the diamond will show up at the most unexpected time if we all pray for it to be found. Sometimes it happens right away, sometimes it takes a while. I’ll keep praying! Love your thoughts for all of us to share.

    Thank you Alona. It would be nice to find the diamond. I have the setting but the stone fell out. I asked God to show it to me if it’s here. I so appreciate any prayers you could lift up for me. Thank you so much.;)
