Break my heart for what breaks yours!

I get in my truck to take my daily morning commute this morning to get my caffeine.  While I am driving I am trying to listen to the radio about the election.  Five radio stations and nothing but commercials.  So I turn it off.  I begin to pray about whatever comes to my mind when I hear “what breaks my heart doesn’t break yours.  I think “Nice …….. God’s speaking”     So I am thinking what does that mean?    I immediately start thinking about my sin.  You know …… my lying, my overeating, my lust, my cursing  my my etc. ……. and thinking about my levels of sin.  (You know what I mean sexual sin is so much worse than being a liar or being lazy or being a gossip)  We all know that in the eyes of God sin is sin man gives the scale.  Why are we so quick to confess sexual sin,   when yesterday you just might have sinned by lying, cursing, stealing you know what I mean and didn’t call anyone?

I begin to think about the quest next week and usually what is going on with me tends to manifest on the quest with some of the men.  Right now my sin doesn’t break my heart when in the past it did.  So I tell a little white lie or I lust over something it could be a woman or not, or I curse …. Whatever I think you get the point.  Some days I get convicted and some days I don’t.  When I get home I try to look up “break my heart for what breaks yours.  It is not even scripture!  It is a lyric to the song Hosanna.  This is where I need to be …..  Something that I need / my heart needs to break for what breaks His. 

While looking for this scripture I came across Ezekiel and it floored me.  26 And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. 27 And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes and be careful to obey my rules. Ezekiel 36:26-27 esv.  This scripture is as much for me as what I think it has to do with this Quest.

I know for me That God sees me better than I see myself at times.  I know my friends see me better than I see myself sometimes.  So I am a work in progress.  A friend of mine who lost his son four weeks ago said this to me in a text message yesterday after our 30 minute phone conversation.

“Thanks Kevo, you are an inspiration.  That’s why I called you.  Needed that!!!!  Thanks for being a good friend!!!  

That text was like the Lord was speaking to me. 

Be blessed today!

Kevin
