10012 Heart Matters onCampus Class
A “heart matter” is what we believe based on our responses to life. I remember hearing about a young girl who believed that if she roller-skated better her mom and dad would not have gotten a divorce. She believed that mom and dad’s divorce was her fault. This “heart matter” caused that young girl to grow up believing she had to perform so that bad things wouldn’t happen to her. Getting our negative responses to life healed can change the course of our lives. The condition of our heart will affect all of our relationships. The Bible says “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he” (Proverbs 23:7a NKJV).
If we listen to the words that come out of our mouth, and become aware of our attitudes and responses to others we will be able to realize what is stored in our heart (For out of the overflow of the heart a man speaks,” (Matthew 12:34b
If you responded to life’s hurts with bitterness, resentment, and unforgiveness, your heart can become hard. A hardened heart causes us to live a life far from the destiny God has for us. It takes a miracle of God to soften a hard heart; but HE CAN AND WILL DO IT, IF WE ASK!
Recognition of sinful heart responses is necessary for healing to begin. If things were too painful in our childhood, our response to protect our heart might have been to deny what actually happened to us. We tend to think that other people’s problems were worse than ours. It’s time to take the mask off and be real with yourself and others. When we deceive ourselves by minimizing, avoiding, justifying, or blame-shifting, we only bury our pain and live a life of bondage and captivity
Heart Matters “Discovering God’s Plan for your Life”, is a 10-week inner-healing curriculum directed at opening the arteries of our hearts so that the lifeblood of Jesus Christ can flow through them and we can become more like Him!
