Brave

What is in possession of your heart this Christmas? Is it a crush? A dream? A job? The promise of a new year?

I woke up this morning and realized that I have unconciously given my heart to things that cannot, will not, protect it. I was careless and dumped my heart into many different unsafe hands trusting they would protect it, or maybe even return my gift with something precious of their own.

This was dangerous on my part and it has cost me much.

So this morning, when I realized what I had done, I resolved this year to operate differently. Not to withhold my heart, but to entrust it, first, to the Lord. If my identity is rooted in Him, I won’t be shaken if I don’t find love or don’t live my dream.

So this Christmas, I challenge you to reclaim your heart, and put it in the hands of a God who has already given you everything.

Check out this story and share what you’re letting go of!
