An Empathetic Heart
No matter how many times I tell myself to be strong and stand up for myself, I find it difficult. My heart is huge and wants to see the absolute best in everyone and everything. I’ve let people in that have hurt me and it’s just not in me to be angry.
This article talks about what it is like to have a heart of an Empath. What it’s like to be sensitive to the people and the things around you. I know there are a lot of skeptics that don’t think that people can be sensitive to others feelings. But as a Christian it is what God calls us to do.
1 Peter 3:8 ESV
Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind.
Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.
Colossians 3:12 ESV
Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience,
Ephesians 4:32 ESV
Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
In order to be a Christian, our hearts must be open to God and His gifts. God gives us gifts that can sometimes feel like burdens. These burdens are part of our purpose. Like the Israelite’s and Jesus, we too must have our trails in the desert. It’s up to you to find your way through.
