Rended heart

Rended heart

Joel 2;13  New Living Translation
Don't tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead." Return to the LORD your God, for he is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish.

Prideful heart
Full of self
Runs aground

Repentant heart
About face
Turning round

Rended heart
Torn wide
Raw and unbound

Humble heart
Bent low
Where lost is found

Surrendered heart
New spaces
Giving ground

Watered heart
Food and drink
Hope found

Tended heart
Past no longer holds
Loosened and unwound

Warrior heart
Spirit lead
 Prepared for battleground

Fully Yielded heart
Christ full
Love abounds
