the Pantry of your Heart

February 5, 2019

How’s your heart?

 

            Your heart was designed on purpose to expand with love and joy. A resilient muscle intended to take a hit then recover and triumph, while maintaining an infinite capacity to preserve memories...forever.

            Like a kitchen pantry your heart is ready for anything, but when was the last time you took inventory of the pantry of your heart?

            Are you content and carefree? Are you weary? Overextended? Guarded? Are you rested? Open? Loving? Are you harboring hurt feelings? Lonely? Longing? Are you faithful?  Vibrant? Are you sad? Angry? Are you full of JOY?

            Joy is easy to see. We buy in bulk and stockpile our delight and happiness on the tidy, eye-level, shelf right in front. What about the dusty and expired items in the back? Old hurts and disappointments?  Worry and Insecurity? What are you holding on to that needs to be refreshed or released?

            One at a time, examine the issues taking up space and set them aside. Some will be easy to toss out, others will require more consideration.

            Embrace stillness... and quietly invite yourself to the truth table.

            Begin with grace and gratitude. Look to the abundant store of joy and happiness and be thankful. Reach to the back and begin to resolve and remove creating a path to openness and healing. Invite peace, patience, and understanding and make room for love and wholeness.

Prayerfully mediate over your hearts pantry; close eyes lay hand over your heart.

 

Heavenly father... come into the room and enter the pantry of my heart.

 

Wash me in gratitude for the countless blessings and joy lining my shelves, as I sit in the stillness; in the quiet; and wait to hear your voice.

           

Allow me to be aware of places of worry, insecurity, and concern, as I sit in the stillness; in the quiet; and wait to hear your voice.

           

Help me to acknowledge the experiences of sadness and hurt taking up room in my heart’s pantry, as I sit in the stillness; in the quiet; and wait to hear your voice.

 

Give me strength to lift them, gently, and set them to the side on a shelf by themselves, as I sit in the stillness; in the quiet; and wait to hear your voice....

           

Fill my heart’s pantry with peace, patience, and understanding, as I sit in the stillness; in the quiet; and wait to hear your voice.

 

I welcome every ingredient you choose, Enrich me, enhance me, encourage me;

as I sit in the stillness; in the quiet; and wait to hear your voice;

as I sit in the stillness; in the quiet; and wait to hear your voice;

as I sit in the stillness; in the quiet; and wait to hear your voice.

 

Amen

 

Our path to fullness expands as we step into the guarded space and release our perceived protection.

Find freedom in the openness and embrace possibility.

 

Possibilities are my favorite.

We are Women in Progress and we are Becoming.
