A closed heart creates “I-solatioion” & “lone-me-ness”

Heart walls
Prevent us
From hearing
Heart calls.

When a human heart breaks insight enters into it, but too often people cling to the pain and push out the light. Jealously indicates a closed heart. Being happy for other people’s good fortune reveals an open, caring heart.

The latch on your heart is within you. No one but you can open it. It takes effort, discipline, and courage to keep your heart open. Human nature wants to shut it down.

An open heart fills up with compassion and concern, trust and transparency. A closed heart wallows in fear and negativity. It’s like a powered down phone–shut off from communication. You can’t be truly grateful if you keep your heart closed.

An open heart feels no need to lie. Dishonesty reveals a closed heart. Sometimes it’s important to quiet our mind and open our heart. An open heart is willing to listen to other people, to conscience, and to God.

Let your heart be a bridge to connect with other people, not a barricade to keep them out. A closed heart creates “I-solatioion” and “lone-me-ness.”

To be smart
With a hard heart
Is to function
Like you’re part
Of a cold machine.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
