GOD HEARS HER

If Our Hearts . . . As I watched a rig I’d contracted drill a well for seven hundred impoverished villagers in rural Uganda, an elderly man approached me. He grasped my hands and in broken English said, “If you could open my heart and view inside, you would see happiness on top of happiness on top of happiness for this water God has provided.” Those words gave me insight into the overflow of this dear man’s heart: gratitude, humility, meekness, and reverence for the Lord were evident. “The mouth speaks what the heart is full of,” Jesus said. “A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart” (Luke 6:45). If our hearts are full of bitterness or hatred, broken relationships and isolation will follow. If our hearts are full of love, compassion, and gratitude, we’ll tend to have healthy, edifying relationships. What’s in your heart? —Roxanne Robbins, God Hears Her Contributor
