Magnifying glass to my heart :

Last night I was up pretty late, just spending some time with God. Listening for His voice in my worship and prayer. These are my favorite nights. I feel like these are the times when God reveals to you the passion and desires of your heart. I was listening to Leeland’s newest album “The Great Awakening”, when one of the songs popped out at me “Pages”.

In Your presence I belong
And without You, I am lost
Come and change me from the inside
In my weakness, You are strong
By the power of the cross
Come and change me from the insideWho am I and where am I going
What kind of fruit are my actions growing
Staring at the pages
You are staring at the pages of my life
Is my passion just to know You
Am I living this life to show You
Staring at the pages
You are staring at the pages of my life

When you hear these words.. Do you begin to wonder “What does God see when He looks at my life?” I know I do. I long for a heart after His. I want a life that proves He is real and living. I want everything I do, from the incredibly godly man I marry (If that is the plan for me) to the way I drive my car to be for Him. I want everything to be glorifying. And THAT is my heart.

Yet, there are a few lines of this song that gets me.. “What kind of fruits are my actions growing”. Before this song came on I had just read Matthew 12:33-35

“A tree is identified by its fruit. If a tree is good, its fruit will be good. If a tree is bad the fruit will be bad. You brood of snakes! How could evil men like you speak what is good and right? For whatever it is in your heart determines what you say. As a good person produces good things from the treasury of their good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart.”

This verse is telling us that what is in your heart is in your actions and your words. “From the heart the mouth speaks.” You cannot cover up or hide the status of your heart. Your actions really are like a magnifying glass to show what is in your heart.

The last line that sticks out to me is “Was it my passion just to know you, am I living this life to show you?”.. My passion is Jesus. I am His. What He wants, I want. That really is my heart, but if I’m not living my life to prove to Him that my passion is honestly  Him.

Then what is there to live for..?
