The Lord of the heart

Proverbs 21:1 The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord,
Like the rivers of water;
He turns it wherever He wishes.

You are the Lord of the heart!

It is in Your hand

like a rudder guiding the way

turning me where I should go

Proverbs 21:2  Every way of a man is right in his own eyes,
But the Lord weighs the hearts.

weighing the heart is Your specialty

man can find any justification to fit his fancy

giving him a false freedom within

but You sort the fibers within the heart

You alone decide if what’s there is right or if it’s wrong

The heavy heart tells much

Proverbs 21:3 To do righteousness and justice
Is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.

There are times we humans desire to simply find a way to take the blame from another

and sacrifice ourselves so that drama, trauma and issue may cease

we would like the pain of the uncomfortable to dissipate

so we can be free from the waiting

But You desire rightness and justice instead

and that means I must always trust and follow You

allowing You to do Your work

Sadly we humans seek at times to relieve others from Your hand

Forgetting how kind You really are

Proverbs 21:4 A haughty look, a proud heart,
And the plowing of the wicked are sin.

With great grief and hardship to ourselves we can start to believe that look in an others eyes

that says “ what’s it to you anyway?  and the expression of prides unwillingness to bend

we start to believe that the anger toward us isn’t just their perception of judgment

we churn looking for the needle in us that caused this

It is in reality the push of sin within

Its that which we all could fall by

it digs deep to drive away others and blame them instead of finding humble footing

Have mercy Lord!!- BE THE LORD OF THE HEART – and turn each of us once again to You.

For Your kindness is great and Your love is deep
