Lifted Up: Our Hearts

Let us test and examine our ways, and return to the Lord! Let us lift up our hearts and hands to God in heaven. Lamentations 3:40-41 English Standard Version (ESV) Heavy lifting can be strenuous. As we lift weighty things, if we're not careful, we can hurt ourselves. Lifting our heads, eyes and hands don't usually cause our bodies strain or injury. Lifting our hearts is another matter entirely, especially when they are full and laden with grief. Our hearts get heavy. Our hearts get heavy with fear, doubt, loneliness, brokenness, guilt, shame and misery. Anger can really be a burdensome load to carry around. Yet, letting things go lightens the weight of our hearts. When we lift our hearts to God as Jesus Christ encourages us to do, we come to realize that doing so makes the heart lighter. What a blessing to know that we can lay our burdens at the feet of our Savior, who is also the Light of life, and experience His perfect peace that eases our burdens and lightens the trials we allow to weigh us down. Let us lift up our hearts to God in Heaven and allow Him, who is high and lifted up, to be the loving God in our lives He has already revealed to us He is. Let's take those heavy things we load up in our hearts and lift them up to God. He is more than able carry them and He sent His Son to give us relief. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Colossians 3:15 NASB
