A Heart of Stone

There was a time where I believed that my heart had turned to stone. Unable to feel love or able to be loved because of the hurt and pain that I had endured in my short time on this earth

Yet, God had other plans, and one of the first things He did (when I became a Christian) was to speak to me about my destiny and to give me a future and a hope

Quite often, the freewill we have in this life means that the world influences us so that we become numb to God’s grace. Ezekiel describes it so beautifully when he said that God would take our heart of stone and give us a new one

What he meant was that our unresponsive, unsurrendered, unrepentant heart is replaced with a new spiritual heart that becomes sensitive to His leading, His guidance, and ultimately, leads us into His arms

The heart the world creates is one that feels disconnected, alone, and unworthy, but I know myself, that the new heart I received went from sin-focused to God-focused

Friends, Jesus died to break the power of sin over our lives. This is why He said that no one comes to the Father except through Him, but also, that no one would find Him unless God draws that person to Jesus (John 6:44) – it’s all about seeking God

Let’s be a person who wants a spiritual heart transplant and who runs after God daily. We were never meant to be separated from the Father, so let’s turn to face Jesus and be guided in God’s truth

The human heart was created to mirror God’s own heart (James 3:9) Therefore, we were designed to love Him, love righteousness, and walk-in harmony with God and others

“And 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.”

Ezekiel‬ ‭36:26‬

My hearts desire is for everyone to have an intimate relationship with Christ. To hear the voice of God and to experience His presence. Also, to help disciple others to discover their purpose within the body of Christ - through the power of the Holy Spirit.

My God-given dream is to break down barriers within life and the Church as a whole to strengthen and develop relationships within every denomination and bring unity - so that we will collectively raise up together and fulfil the Great Commission, within this lifetime.

I am living proof that no matter what your past was or whatever your life has become - God will use you to fulfil what He created you to do, when you step out in obedience and faith.
