Making Our Hearts An Habitat

In each of us we have a soul, a heart and a mind.  
Each of these becomes a dwelling place for things we put into our daily lives.    

The word habitat means a place where things live and grow. In order for each of us to make our hearts an habitat for the Lord.  We must empty out, so He can fill us with His Spirit.  

The more we empty out of our minds, out of our time, out of our thoughts, we are creating room for Him.   He can not dwell where there is no room for Him to fill.   Remember when Joseph and Mary came to the Inn and there was NO room in the Inn, why? It was filled to capacity.

This is what Christ is saying to us today.  I long to be with you, to dwell in you, to live there and to grow, but there is no room for me.

Maybe, in your life, you spend to much time on your cell phone or the internet.  Maybe you fill your time with pleasurable books or your home and life is so cluttered with things that you find yourself overwhelmed by spending so much time trying to keep up with it all.

Search me, oh Lord, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: Ps 139:23

Let us allow Christ to crowd out the things that consume us.

Over the next few months empty your life. Scale back on the things
that fill your time and your life. Do not seek for blessings, for needs, or wants from Him.
Instead seek for a closer walk with Him!

 Blessed are they which hunger and thirst after His righteousness: for they shall be filled.
Matthew 5:6

Let's become women on a journey.  
Join me, as I make this my journey in my life.
A Heart fully devoted for Christ.

Winter Berry

I have always loved the name Winter Berry.  
  I thought what a beautiful name for a blog it would make.

So, for now I have changed my blog name to Winter Berry.
I love the newness it brings to my blog.
It's okay to change really, it is.
I'm trying to convince myself here.  LOL 😉

The web address will stay the same. ( Simply Farmhouse)
