It’s Time to Break the walls around your heart

_140_245_Book.970.cover

When I first seen that Mary DeMuth was writing a new book called The Walls Around Your Heart, I knew that this book was for me. I have always buried and stuffed things in and with that it caused me to build walls around my heart. Walls that no one could penetrate, walls that I didn’t want removed. God thought otherwise and when I got the chance to review The Walls Around Your Heart I will be honest, it scared me because I am one of those who don’t like change.

Using the Lord’s Prayer, Mary walks us through how to knock down those walls not only with scripture but with her own personal stories of how she knocked down her walls and with the stories from others. The Lord’s Prayer from Matthew 6:9-13 (NLT) says, “Pray like this: Our Father in heaven, may your name be kept holy. May your Kingdom come soon. May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us today the food we need, and forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who sin against us. And don’t let us yield to temptation, but rescue us from the evil one.” When I read this exactly like she asked I knew it was time to knock down the walls, make amends and serve God the way I should be serving him.

Life is hard and people are mean, rude and sometimes they don’t care who they hurt. But when we see them as God sees them that’s when we know that God is faithful and we can trust Him with all of our relationships, even the broken ones and the ones that have yet to be made. Let God in and have control of your life and then you will be able to knock down those walls that are preventing you from a life that God has in store for you.

The Wall Around Your Heart

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!!!!!!
