Hmmm…

What keeps your heart beating?

What makes it beat faster?

What calms it down?

What does your heart NEED?

Have you checked your pulse lately?

What’s it telling you?

At the root of my “heart need”
is the longing to be loved,
to be valued,
to be needed.

Like my little grandson NEEDED a friend
to help him learn to get his new four-wheeler moving,
my heart needs to be needed.
Does yours?

In today’s Guideposts devotional, the message said,
“Emotional needs can be every bit as acute as physical ones…
the Lord hardwired into human beings the desire for
love, acceptance, and a sense of safety.
These necessities are what cause us
to seek out friendships, marriage,
and , ultimately,
a relationship with God.”

What’s Your “Heart Need”?

Is it something that can be satisfied with the things of this world?
A friend, a spouse, a large bank account, a satisfying job?
Those “needs” are real… but they are not the “heart food that lasts.”

Heart Food That Lasts

Love and acceptance, a feeling of being valued, cannot last if it only comes from worldly things. A solid sense of self-worth is critical to heart health. We cannot fully receive love and acceptance without a sense of self-worth.

If you are uncertain about your own innate, precious value, you will project onto family and friends the “God-sized task” of proving you are valued. And, the problem with that (as stated clearly in the Guideposts devotional today) is, “No human being can be an inexhaustible emotional resource.”

Heart food that lasts comes from God’s unconditional love. So, accept it. Dine on it daily. Let it fill your plate – and satisfy your heart. Do not be anxious about anything!

Proverbs 12:25 says,
“An anxious heart weighs a man down,
but a kind word cheers him up.”

Have an Open Heart

God wants to be your unlimited source of sustainable heart food! Let your self-worth be based on His love in you. You are a Child of God, beloved, holy, worthy. Open wide the heart doors and let that knowledge seep into your soul.

What keeps your heart beating?

What makes it beat faster?

What calms it down?

What does your heart NEED?
