Fear Not Friday | What Do I Carry in My Heart?

On the discussion of fear, I often wonder what I have hidden in the recesses of my heart.

A treacherous beginning in childhood left caverns of unknowns locked away in me and I’ve been searching for them ever since. They are hard to locate later in life.

Jesus had an interesting conversation about the “heart” of a man:

Again Jesus called the crowd to him and said, “Listen to me, everyone, and understand this.
15 Nothing outside a person can defile them by going into them. Rather, it is what comes out of a person that defiles them. ”
17 After he had left the crowd and entered the house, his disciples asked him about this parable.
18 “Are you so dull?” he asked. “Don’t you see that nothing that enters a person from the outside can defile them?
19 For it doesn’t go into their heart but into their stomach, and then out of the body.” 

Mark 7: 14-19

So, I need not to be as concerned with what I’m taking into my body, but rather what “lives” with me — daily in my heart.

I have the courage to tell my story to help others embrace theirs.
