An Open Heart

I recently posted about having an open heart and asked readers what that phrase meant to them. You had some wonderful responses! First15 is a ministry with an app and a website that recently asked that very question.

Below is the link to their daily 15- minute devotional on having an open heart:

First15 Having an Open Heart

What are your thoughts after reading this?

For those who are interested in learning more about First15, here is the description of their ministry:
A growing relationship with God comes when you experience Him daily. Christians know the importance of a daily quiet time consisting of Bible reading and prayer, yet many struggle with finding a devotional resource that is both easy to understand and relatable to daily life. We write new devotionals each day consisting of Scripture, reflection, prayer, musical worship, and a call to action. Thousands of readers each month use our content to discover God in a deeper way, and it’s changed their lives.

    Dear overwhelmed with joy…. Can i ask… I want to be overwhelmed with joy… And despite the many passages of the bible and prayer i remain continously just overwhelmed to the point of relentless. I turn to psalms which gives me comfort…. Friends speak how i give them calm and peace yet inside me there is chaos… Im more of a clown than a juggler… Sos.. Ps i downloaded that 15 app.. Thanks for following

      I believe that true joy comes when we have a relationship with Jesus Christ. I encourage you today to seek Him and ask Him if He is first in your life and is there anything that is standing between that relationship? It is a difficult question to ask, yet I have found only a gentle and loving God who is faithful to answer when I seek Him. I ask Him to show me what is hindering that joy. I don’t know how much of the Bible you have read, but can I encourage you today to spend some time reading the book of John?
