Imparts to Hearts?

Has God given us toys to play with or whole new hearts? For me, the answer lies in asking who is “boss” of my life? My answer: I was– until I saw my need for God.

It was Grace that exposed to me how broken my judgment had become from walking by human precept. Grace gently revealed the net in which I was ensnared, a net that had me stumbling and dismayed. I was engulfed and entangled and truly in trouble.

Hosea this morning speaks to that kind of plight, and it helps me appreciate that it’s not only common, but often necessary. I guess my human pride simply pooh-poohed my need for God, until I needed God. And when I finally did, a tiny spot of room became available at the inn of my human heart. “Oh little town of Bethlehem,” I sing today, remembering how lowly was the manger of me. Then the rest of the verse comes, and so I sing the best part, “So God imparts to human hearts the blessings of His heaven.”
