One of the greatest miracles- one that blows my mind every time- is watching Father God’s Spirit move in a cold heart. Human to human coldness kills the relationship. Sweetheart, it is hurtful. It cuts. It freezes. If you want to kill something, just be cold to it. Once one becomes frozen in feeling, thinking, or actions – when someone wants to abandon something in themselves – they choose to ignore someone … leave them out … avoid eye contact … as hard as it is to swallow, you and I, at some point, have been both the giver and the receiver of this action.
But, here is the silver lining my sweet friend, its like a plant that has spent the winter indoors – when you take it outside, place it in the sunshine, give it a drink, and care – that is nurturing. That is newness in its finest form.
And that, Dearheart, is exactly what the Holy Spirit does when allowed to be released within a cold heart.
Spirit, move me.
‘I will place My Spirit within you and cause you to follow’ (Ezekiel 36:27 HCSB)
