“We don’t come into this world jaded. We enter life with breathtaking dreams and open, trusting hearts, convinced that anything is possible… After a while, the accumulation of event after event that we do not like and do not understand erodes our confidence that we are part of something grand and good, and reduces us to a survivalist mind-set. But even as we cling to survival, something may be dying.”-Denise Hildreth Jones
Yes, it’s true. We do not came into this world sharpened and strong. We came here full of hopes and dreams. Full of happiness and purity. We smile, we laugh and end each day on a peaceful sleep.
But as we grow older and older, we tend to have our failures. Some of us failed on achieving an honor. Some failed to have a long lasting relationship. Some are unable to see the real happiness in their life, while others are blinded by the consequences and just go with the worldly process.
But we cannot end everything with a shutdown heart, we should not forget how we live. Even if the process repeats itself where everything holds us back to the embrace of God, we should not. “No one can take your God-designed, alive heart away from you. Only you can hand it over. And only you – with God’s gracious help-can take it back. (D.H.Jones)”
As Jones said,
“Reclaiming your heart takes courage. It takes work too-the work of honestly examining your life and then being intentional with different choices. But it is so worth it. With God’s help, you can reclaim your shut-down heart and run headlong into your amazing future.”
