How is the condition of your heart?
Do you sometimes feel as though you can't handle the ongoing problems anymore? The distant spouse. The rebellious child. The needy parent. The overloaded schedule. The lack of money. And does the compounding of these situations sometimes leave you feeling bitter, confused, defensive, and wondering why all these things just seem to be happening to you?
You may be struggling with an orphaned heart.
An orphaned heart is an "unhealed heart" fostered by a lack of biblical parenting. Quite often, a person with an orphaned heart wants to be loved but is afraid to reach out for fear of being rejected. Pastor Casey Treat explains, "Many Christians are bitter, scared, angry, or abusive because their hearts have not been healed."
Casey Treat shares that the heart is the control center of all the success you will experience in life. As you allow your heart to be healed and made whole, you will break negative cycles, such as short-term relationships, debt, and marriage and family problems. You will begin to have fun in your relationships; you will enjoy your job more; and you will feel a sense of destiny.
So, how is your heart condition? You may not know it, but your heart is deciding your quality of life. Make a decision today that you want a whole, healthy, healed heart and begin taking steps to Healing the Orphaned Heart.
