A shutdown heart is nothing more than a distracted heart. Distractions are means of keeping us from our God designed purpose. Fear is a distraction. Weariness, anger and shame are also distractions.
Distractions are schemes of the enemy to keep us from being present. Did you ever realize when you were working very hard or praying diligently for a specific thing you wanted to accomplish through God’s will, the enemy will constantly put distractions in your path?
There are also schemes of the enemy to keep us from being present with our family, our gifts and callings, our children, even our hearts.
Reclaiming our heart is a God designed way of being present, of laughing, living and loving. For God is present in all the details of your life and your story.
