If you are anything like me, and most people I assume, you take great care and caution to guard your heart. We protect ourselves from hurt, pain, and disappointment by refusing to let anyone get in deep enough to reach our heart and personal desires.
The important question is why? Why is it so hard to let people in... even the people we love and trust the most. Even the God that we so desperately seek?
I think it's because we get caught. We get caught up in the insignificant and the struggle that make life so much harder than it really should be. We forget to realize that life is about so much more than jobs, school, success, promotions or money.... but we refuse to let these things go because it seems like they're all we have.
The only way to get beyond these things that really don't matter in the end is to... let go, trust, love, and seek with your whole heart.
Woah... way easier said than done right? How are we supposed to just forget about money and material things and give away our hearts? I think it might be a lifelong process, each day if we can get closer and closer, I think that is all we can ask for.
I encourage you to give a piece of heart today. Open up and learn to live.
