Thought of the Day June 24, 2016

To return to the heart means to return to what is most personal and interior to us. Sometimes we are afraid to return to the heart. We are afraid of the hurt memories that are stored up in our heart and the pain attached to those memories. We are afraid of the darkness we may encounter. And yet the heart is where we will find our true self, the self that longs to love and be loved, that seeks purpose and meaning. There we will find the presence of Christ revealing our true self in spite of the wounds and scars. The heart is the place of love and peace. But we must take time to be still in the presence of the Lord in the center of our heart for him to bring about the healing and freedom he desires for us.
