Christ’s Peace

As Jesus is the center of our life, and we live according to His Word, we discover the greatest gift: the peace and serenity that is given to those who put their trust in Him—a serenity seated in our heart and grounded in the eternal love of God.

Philippians 4:7 Dismiss all anxiety form your minds. Present your needs to God in eve- ry form of prayer and in petitions full of gratitude. Then God’s own peace, which is beyond all understanding, will stand guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Colossians 3:1 Since you have been raised up in company with Christ, set your heart on what pertains to higher realms where Christ is seated.

Colossians 3:15 Christ’s peace must reign in your hearts, since as members of one body you have been called to that peace. Dedicate yourselves to thankfulness.

Deuteronomy 4:29 Yet there too you shall seek the Lord, your God; and you shall indeed find him when you search after him with your whole heart and your whole soul.

Jeremiah 24:7–8 I will give them a heart with which to understand that I am the Lord. They shall be my people and I will be their God, for they shall return to me with their whole heart.

Anxiety

Anxiety

We become anxious when our attention is far from God. As we draw close to him and abandon ourselves with faith, we will feel His love and protection. If we cannot add a moment to our life span, says the Lord, why be anxious about the rest? For God is merciful and he will never abandon us.

Proverbs 12:25 Anxiety in a man’s heart depresses it, but a kindly word makes it glad.

Isaiah 35:4 Say to those whose hearts are frightened: Be strong, fear not! Here is your God…he comes to save you.

Jeremiah 32:40 I will make with them an eternal covenant, never to cease doing good to them; into their hearts I will put the fear of me, that they may never depart from me.

John 14:1 Do not let your hearts be troubled. Have faith in God and faith in me.

Philippians 4:6–7 Dismiss all anxiety from your minds. Present your needs to God in every form of prayer and in petitions full of gratitude. Then God’s own peace, which is beyond all understanding, will stand guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Acceptance

Treasure the Word of Christ in your heart. Accept Jesus with unconditional love. He wants us to be Christ-like with heartfelt mercy, humility, kindness, and patience. We need to believe and to surrender. Jesus opens our hearts to the law and grants us peace.

Colossians 3:16 Let the word of Christ, rich as it is, dwell in you .In wisdom made perfect, instruct and admonish one another. Sing gratefully to God from your hearts in psalms, hymns and inspired songs.

1 Timothy 1:5 What we are aiming at is the love that springs from a pure heart, a good conscience, and a sincere faith.

Hebrews 4:12 Indeed God’s word is living and effective, sharper than any two-edged sword. It penetrates and divides soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the reflections and thoughts of the heart.

A NATURAL HEART

The natural heart listens to the word of God, so nourishing, enlightening and life-giving. The natural heart symbolizes a bridge between the heart of men and the Divine, allowing us to be close to Him and to understand that God is all we need. The natural heart joins us to God’s heart.

Ezekiel 11:19          I will give them a new heart and put a new spirit within them; I will remove the stony heart from their bodies, and replace it with a natural heart, so that they will live according to my statutes.

2 Corinthians 1:21–22      God is the one who firmly establishes us along with you in Christ; it is he who anointed us and has sealed us, thereby depositing the first payment, the Spirit, in our hearts.

Ephesians 3:17        May Christ dwell in your hearts through faith, and may charity be the root and foundation of your life.

Ephesians 6:6         Do not render service for appearance only and to please men, but do God’s will with your whole heart as slaves of Christ.

Philippians 4:6–7    Dismiss all anxiety from your minds. Present your needs to God in every form of prayer and in petitions full of gratitude. Then God’s own peace, which is beyond all understanding, will stand guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

A Merciful God

The heart is the symbol of compassion and love in the Christian world. The forgiveness and kindheartedness of Jesus are an invitation to apply his clemency and tenderness toward our neighbor and toward us. When you do this heart will rejoice, says the Lord.

2 Maccabees 11:9         Then all of them thanked God for his mercy, and their hearts were filled with such courage …

 Jeremiah 17:10       I, the Lord, alone probe the mind and test the heart, to reward everyone according to his ways, according to the merit of his deeds. They shall be my people and I will be their God, for they shall return to me with their whole heart.

Jeremiah 32:40       I will make with them an eternal covenant, never to cease doing good to them; into their hearts I will put the fear of me, that they may never depart from me.

Ezekiel 3:10            Son of man, he said to me take into your heart all my words that I speak to you.

Joel 2:13                Rend your hearts, not your garments, and return to the Lord, your God. For gracious and merciful is he, slow to anger, rich in kindness and relenting in punishment.

I am a Cancer Survivor

Opening your heart may help yourself and others.

I am a cancer survivor. I want to share with you  my experience from the darkness of Cancer to the light of Healing.

My vision of life has changed: initially I could not see the future but now I thank God for every breath I take. Every day of life is a gift.

The word  C A N C E R   is an acronym, it means : I Can See.

I can see through the eyes of God.  And so can you!

A Listening Heart

When we listen with our heart, we give attention from the deepest part of ourselves, and we respond to the ones we hear with love. As we treasure the Word in our heart, we allow the Lord to be present in our life and to be the light of our existence. God is our rock and our refuge. Let your heart be entirely with God. Serve him with all your heart and soul.

Deuteronomy 11:18        Therefore, take these words of mine into your heart and soul.

Proverbs 4:20–21    My son, to my words be attentive, to my sayings incline your ear; let them not slip out of your sight, keep them within your heart.

Proverbs 22:17       Incline your ear, and hear my words, and apply your heart to my doctrine …

Proverbs 23:19       Hear my son, and be wise, and guide your heart in the right way.

Sirach 37:13           Then, too, heed your own heart’s counsel; for what have you that you can depend on more?
