I really want to be a wellspring...a spring bubbling up in a beautiful meadow. Giving out love, and contentment, and joy..passion.
But I feel like there is a block...a bunch of debris clogging my free flowing spring..what is that block...
what keeps the well from springing forth with clean. pure water...?
I must clear it out....
Be still and know...

I just read this poem....it's deep, but oh so rich! Draws me close to God.
When you pray, lay aside thoughts
that peck at the body and dive after souls
fears that give birth to needs
concerns that lay ambush to the future
mistakes that make poison of the past
When you pray lay aside thoughts
of where you are and what you are doing
of your struggle to walk the Chosen Path
even your hopes to leave behind
a few final footsteps in the sand
Then pull from under you
what little ground you still stand on
like a feather into the hand of God
Rest there so lightly so very very lightly
that when you think about it
(which you will not do!)
you will feel no longer where you end
and God begins.

This made me think about the state of my heart...
“The things that come out of the mouth come from the heart.”Matthew 15:18
“A Heart Temperature Chart.”
An ANGRY mouth indicates a HURT & HARSH heart.

An OVER ACTIVE mouth indicates an UNSETTLED heart.
A JUDGMENTAL mouth indicates a GUILTY heart.
A FOUL & DIRTY mouth indicates an IMPURE heart.
A CRITICAL & BOASTING mouth indicates an INSECURE heart.
An ENCOURAGING mouth indicates a HAPPY heart.
A GENTLE mouth indicates a LOVING & MERCIFUL heart.
A HEALING mouth indicates a PEACEFUL & CONTENT heart.
A CONTROLLED mouth indicates a SUBMISSIVE heart.
