The Wall Around Your Heart
Hello everyone, today I want to talk about having walls around your heart. One of my favorite authors had a new book to release yesterday Oct. 15 entitled The Wall Around your Heart, how Jesus heals you when others hurt you. I am patiently waiting the arrival of my copy and can not wait to dive into this book.
When I first heard about Mary’s new book and seen the title I thought, “She must have written this just for me.” I am bad about putting walls around my heart because everytime I turn around I have been hurt.
Here is the description of the book:
Family members hurtus. Friends betray us. Fellow Christians deceive us. But Jesus provides a paththrough the pain—the Lord’s Prayer.
In The Wall AroundYour Heart, Mary DeMuth shows you that you can reach wholeness and healing in the aftermath of painfulrelationships by following the road map of the Lord’s Prayer. You’ll walkthrough story after story of hurt people who are led through biblical truth intoamazing, life-sustaining, joyful growth.
Life is hard. Peoplecan be mean and petty and awful. But they can also be amazing and beautiful andsacrificial. God is good. He is faithful. You can trust him with yourrelationships. “He’ll send people to call out what is hard in your heart,” Maryshares. “And that’s a gift to you.”
Allow God to access the wall around your heart. Dare to say,“Tear down the bricks, Lord, whatever it takes.” Pray first. Ask forbravery—for yourself and for others. Risk engaging despite your hurt. Seek theshelter of Jesus.
You don’t have to resign yourself to your wounds! You can rise above the pain. You’ll usher in a newlife—an openhearted way of relating to others that expands the kingdom of God. Inthe process, you’ll draw closer to Jesus, be healed, and become an agent ofhealing to others.
Can we say wow, powerful a must read for all!!!
I can personally tell you a time when God crashed down one of the walls around my heart. I wasn’t one to put how I truly feel out there and found that because of a lot of trust issues and abuse that happened to me when I was little, I couldn’t let my husband know how I truly felt. One day God had led me to Celebrate Recovery and there I learned how to let it go, through the help of realizing what had happened to me was not my fault and that God still loved me and that my husband would not think less of me, I let him know what had happened to me and since then things have been a lot better. When you truly trust God with your problems and let it all go, He will knock down those walls one at a time.
I can’t wait to get this book in my hands and see what other walls God will knock down. I encourage each one of you to read this book with me. After I am finished with the book I will post my review. Be on the lookout!!!!!!
