Get Your Heart Back

Love, it’s time.

To get your heart back.

00

Come home. You need to hear these words again from His gentle whisper,

You need to hear these words again from His gentle whisper, “I have chosen you a long time ago and I will choose you again.”

You have been wandering thoughtlessly, bits-and-pieces, long enough.

Our Father says, “Come home. Come to Me. Get what’s always been yours.”

Love, get your identity back.

Be His again because you’ve always been His.

Don’t be afraid to start things all over again. Maybe, it’s time to start things all over again.

You just got to let go of everything.

You can’t love when you’re still holding that offense in your heart.

Anything in the dark, anything that hinders you from following His voice, anything that hurts, in His arms, everything will be wiped out.

Only kind embrace. Only tears of joy. Only grace that covers every sin.

In His arms, we’ll laugh together at how childish our past actions were. We’ll be grateful that our childish hearts led us back to our home. Right at the Father’s arms, where forgiveness overflows.

When we drifted too far, trust that there’s nowhere that we can go where He won’t be there.

So, come back.

Get your heart back.

Because He still loves the way you are.

You’re the one who laughs at the silliest of things. The one who looks at the stars and tells them, “One day, I’ll shine like you guys too.”

The one who enjoys the stillness and the one who dreams without limits.

The one who’s full of passion. The one who runs after purity. The one who trusts without a doubt. The one who loves beyond compare.

You’re that one. We love you, love.

You needed to hear that. You are loved.

Thank you for loving the world wholeheartedly, like no one else.

And I’m sorry it wounded you back. I’m sorry it rejected you. I’m sorry it shut its doors from you.

I’m sorry it took away your heart.

But look at you now, you have learned to love deeper.

You have learned to let go of hundreds of shallow relationships in exchange for few deep ones who know how to stay.

You have learned to open your closet of secrets to family and friends who told you, “You will never hide in this closet again. We’ve seen everything and nothing changed. You’re still part of us. There’s no escaping now. There’s no escaping in this simple love. We love you, in highs and lows.”

You have learned to walk away from temporary happiness and treasured the eternal joy of discovering that you can’t have it all in your hands.

So you let go and trust that everything will be just fine in the hands of the One who made it all. After all, your small hands are also being held by His hands, keeping it all warm and alive.

Now that you’re coming back.

Now that you’re walking out of your comfort zone again.

Now that you’re feeling things again.

I want the first one to say: Welcome to the fight.

That’s the beauty of this war. Whether we lose or win, we can keep coming back to know Him more. In pursuit of Him making our hearts new every single time, in every season, in mourning and in dancing.

His heart as your heart.

Your heart is no longer yours. Just in case you forgot, it’s always been His.

Protect it better this time and slow down, will you?

Your heart wants to stay this time. Enjoy the hustle. God enjoys the ones who stay.

The hopes and fears have met tonight. They worked faithfully together just for you. Now, is the time you will forget all the heartbreaks and everything will be alright.

You have your heart back.
