A heart can turn as hard and cold as ice. A heart that once burned with zeal and passion for God,that once flowed with love for others,can, for a myriad of possible reasons, become hard, become cold. Maybe it's due to weariness, woundedness, or too much outflow without enough inflow. For whatever reason, the heart feels numb. How do you thaw a cold, hard heart?
God's Word can melt a icy heart, the wind of His Spirit can cause His love to flow through it again. I've been there, maybe you've been there too. If your heart is feeling numb, cold, hardened, warm your heart with the fire of His word and ask God to thaw and soften it. The Psalms are a good place to start. David, who wrote so many of them, is so transparent about his heart struggles and, thank God, we can be, too. Invite His Spirit in and ask Him to refresh you in your weariness, to heal your pain and wounds, to fill up your emptiness, to help you be a channel of His love again. The same God who turns the winter into spring, every single year since the earth was created, is more than able to breathe new life into you.
