Heart = Thoughts, Actions and Emotions

Posted: 30 Sep 2009 09:10 AM PDT

think Pictures, Images and Photos
Proverbs 23:7
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he (KJV)
For as he thinks within himself, so he is. (NASB)
For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. (AMP)

Above are three different translations which have the same underlying meaning. What we think in our minds is a direct result of what we feel within our hearts. What we think in our minds affects our actions, our emotions and our words. Yet, it all begins in my central location.


My questions to you: Are you a thinker?Are your thoughts positive or negative? Do you speak out of anger? Do you react out of anger? Are the wheels of your mind constantly turning? Does your mind get tired from all your thinking? Are you ready to be set free?

These are questions I have asked myself this past week. My answer to every single one of them is:


I have been studying the power of thoughts and words all week. I have Joyce Meyer's book, "Battlefield of the Mind" and I am reading it ever so slowly. I highly recommend anyone who is troubled with wrong or negative thoughts to get this book and study it diligently. It is truly a powerful book.

The first lesson I learned is that all my thoughts begin in my heart. This was an ouch to me because if I am thinking negative and bad thoughts, how can I say I truly love Jesus? Jesus is love. He is not negative nor is He bad. So how can my mouth utter the words, I love Jesus, when my heart is filled with negative and bad thoughts?

HMMM, I have to change the condition of my heart and my thoughts. But, can I change the condition of my heart and mind? NO, only God can. This is why David said in Psalm 51:10, "Create in me a clean heart, O God." David also says in Psalm 139:23,24, "Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my anxieties; And see if there is any wicked way in me, And lead me in the way everlasting.."

Notice in both verses David is asking God to do something with his heart: "create, clean, search and see".  In reading these two verses it is obvious that the heart is the central control tower which directs our thoughts, our actions and our emotions. Also, notice that David is asking the one who created his heart to create, clean, search and see the things that are not right within his heart: GOD. We can not do this on our own.

Only God can change your heart condition.

So,  I have began my journey on changing my heart. Each day in my prayers I speak the words in Psalm 51:10 and 139:23,24 to God. (God so loves it when we pray His words back to Him). I know that God changing my heart will take time, and I know that it will not happen overnight, yet I am certain that little by little God will indeed change my heart. He will remove all that is not right within my heart. In God changing my heart, my thoughts, my actions, my emotions and my life will indeed change for the better. 


Will you travel along with me on this journey? Will you watch the transformation take place as God changes my heart? Better yet, will you join me in this life changing journey by asking God to change your heart?

I hope and pray that you will.

Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and from Jesus Christ, the Father's Son, will be with us in truth and love.

Christians are 'crucified' in guerrilla raids by Lord's Resistance Army

Lord's Resistance Army Marauding bands of guerrillas have crucified seven Christians during a series of raids on villages in Sudan.

One of the men was tied to a tree and mutilated while six other victims were nailed to pieces of wood fastened to the ground and killed.

Villagers who found their bodies near the town of Nzara said it was like a "grotesque crucifixion scene".

Bishop Eduardo Hiiboro Kussala of Tombura-Yambio has now appealed for international help to stop the attacks by members of the Lord's Resistance Army.

Elizabeth Smart Can Testify in Accused Kidnapper's Competency Hearing

Elizabeth Smart A federal judge has ruled that Elizabeth Smart can testify in the upcoming mental competency hearing for her accused kidnapper.

In a ruling issued Monday afternoon, U.S. District Judge Dale A. Kimball denied a defense motion to bar Smart from testifying in the case of Brian David Mitchell.

Whitehouse denied Harry Potter author medal over witchcraft

Harry Potter A memoir by George W Bush's former speechwriter claims that Bush administration officials objected to giving JK Rowling a presidential medal of freedom on the grounds that her Harry Potter books "encouraged witchcraft".

Latimer, whose memoir Speech-Less: Tales of a White House Survivor was published last week by Crown in the US, says that the "narrow thinking" of "people in the White House" led them "to actually object to giving the author JK Rowling a presidential medal because the Harry Potter books encouraged witchcraft".

Polygamists Seek Decriminalization Of Their Lifestyle

Polygamy The Utah Attorney General's Office has declined to prosecute a case of polygamy alone, citing resource issues of building prisons for tens of thousands of polygamists and creating an enormous burden on the welfare system to care for their wives and children.

Instead, prosecutors have followed Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff's advice in going after crimes within polygamy -- including child-bride marriages, abuse, and fraud.

Workers at Unification Church-related company pressure customers into expensive purchases

cult leader Sun Myung Moon Four members of a seal stamp company in Osaka, Japan have been arrested for intimidating customers into buying expensive products.

The suspects -- whose company is connected to the Unification Church, a religious cult -- contacted three women through fortune-telling services and threathened them over many hours.

Muslim scholar calls for death penalty over virginity-faking device

Muslim woman A leading Egyptian scholar has demanded that people caught importing a female virginity-faking device into the country should face the death penalty.

Abdul Mouti Bayoumi said supplying the item was akin to spreading vice in society, a crime punishable by death in Islamic Sharia law.

Have a Litte Faith

Mitch Albom's book, have a little faith, hits the nail on the head when it states that most people turn to Jesus only when facing their darkest hour. This story could easily portray the life of an individual from many walks of life. I highly recommend this easy to digest story which hits home with [...]
