A Woman with a Kingdom Heart

(via)
“when a woman has a kingdom heart, she has an active understanding of what matters most to the heart of God. she lives in the balance of passion and contentment. she learns to love well, give without regard to self, and forgive without hesitation. the woman with a kingdom heart may have a duffel bag full of possessions or enough treasures to fill a mansion, but she has learned to hold them with an open hand. hold everything with open hands. i don't think we are ever allowed to grab hold of anything or anyone as though they matter more than the kingdom of heaven. when you hold relationships with open hands, then people come in and out of your life as gifts of grace to be cherished and enjoyed, not objects to be owned and manipulated. and then when you hold your dreams with open hands, you get to watch God resurrect what seemed dead and multiply what seemed small.” -author uknown

I found this quote a few weeks ago and have been so enveloped in the truth of it. It's something I've been learning for the past 3 years and slowly but surely I've gotten to the point where I'm confident enough in God to believe that I can be a woman with a kingdom heart. I want to be a woman with a kingdom heart.

  1. I tried commenting on this from my iPhone TWICE this morning but somehow it wouldn't take. I just wanted to say that I *SO* needed to read this. It's funny how sometimes a message from God is never more clear because the timing and delivery is so spot on.

    Thank you so much for sharing this with us today! I hope you have a blessed weekend!
