The Heart of Stone

  • I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. Ezekiel 36:26 NIV

    I had a different childhood growing up. My Mom divorced nine times, and my Dad three. Everyone in my life was temporary. At one point I was the youngest of thirteen children, ten of which were step siblings. It was not uncommon to see them fist fighting in the yard, sometimes in the house. I had my head beat against the wall a few times. You learned to stay out of the way and keep a low profile. I was the least of them all, and an outsider anyway. This began when I was one year old so I grew up thinking that this was normal family behavior.

    By the time that I was an adult, I had developed a heart of stone. There were about three people on earth total that I cared anything about, and I had enough ex-family members to populate a small city. When some of them died, I felt joy. I really had no feelings left for anyone, and when you can no longer feel the pain, you no longer feel love.

    After I came to know the Lord, He started melting this little by little. I actually started to care for people and it seemed strange at first. Finally at about thirty-five, I actually fell head over heels in love, got married and have lived happily ever since. I cry at the movies. God gave me a new heart.

    There is healing for a heart of stone. God can give you a new one, and you can feel love just like you were meant to. Keep pursuing God. The more time you spend with Jesus, the softer your heart will become.
