I have dropped off the pages these past couple weeks, but I did, however, complete “the 30 day praise challenge” by Becky Harling. I recommend this daily devotional for anyone wanting to experience a closer walk with God through praise and worship.
Over the past eighteen years, I have suffered depression. Five years ago, the depression was at its worst and this was when I rededicated by life to Christ. At this particular time in my life, I could not rely on my feelings or my heart when it came to my salvation and walk with Jesus. I diligently sought the Word of God to know what He thought, felt and his plans for me. To say the least, I have had a huge head-heart disconnect ever since.
My walk through “the 30 day praise challenge” began to restore the head-heart disconnect I have endured. Spending time in praise and worship of My Lord and Savior softened a place in my heart. The softened places now allows my heart to beat again solely for Him and to rely on my feelings. “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.” Mark 12:30
Please listen to the following interview and song by Danny Gokey. Danny reminds us where ever we are in your walk; let Jesus, “tell your heart to beat again”.
