How Soft is Your Heart, Today?

What a year, people of God?! And yet any day on “fallen” planet earth can be a curve ball even without COVID, wild fires, ordered isolation, or racial strife. But the real question, “How soft is your heart, today?” Numb? Hardened? Wounded? Pliable to the Master? Joy-filled?
See, time with the Jesus makes us an anomaly down here; different, seasoned and “salty.” We are to be a gift from Jesus to a fallen world. When they are drowning, we stand on the Rock and lend a hand.

But if life affects us more than we affect life, something is broken in the Divine flow. Jesus strengthens, empowers and gives us His “aroma.” But sadly, many Christians carry a subtle odor, rather than Christ’s life-giving aroma. So after life’s bumps and bruises, I ask you as your brother in the faith, “How soft is your heart, today? Is it tender and close to Jesus? Reflecting Jesus? Or has it hardened due to the life’s strain? Many humans wouldn’t fault you or even notice, but the Holy Spirit does.Let me leave you today with this tender Scriptural prayer, that does not have a clause even when life has been comes with waves of challenge:
Psalm 19:14- “Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my rock and my Redeemer.”
