Kingdom heart.






When a woman has a kingdom heart, she has an active understanding of what matters most to the heart of God. 

She lives in the balance of passion and contentment. 

She learns to love well, give without regard to self, and forgive without hesitation.
The woman with a kingdom heart may have a duffel bag full of possessions or enough treasures to fill a mansion, but she has learned to hold them with an open hand. 

Hold everything with open hands. 

I don’t think we are ever allowed to grab hold of anything or anyone as though they matter more than the kingdom of heaven.

When you hold relationships with open hands, then people come in and out of your life as gifts of grace to be cherished and enjoyed, not objects to be owned and manipulated.

And then when you hold your dreams with open hands, you get to watch God resurrect what seemed dead and multiply what seemed small.

Matthew 22:37
Jesus replied, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind."


Hebrews 10:22
Let us go into the presence of God with sincere hearts fully trusting Him. For our guilty conciences have been sprinkled with Christ's blood to make us clean, and our bodies have been washed with pure water.

  1. those last two paragraphs gave me chills:

    " When you hold relationships with open hands, then people come in and out of your life as gifts of grace to be cherished and enjoyed, not objects to be owned and manipulated.


    And then when you hold your dreams with open hands, you get to watch God resurrect what seemed dead and multiply what seemed small."

    such good stuff. i think it's what we all know but so quickly forget... we know it when we read the words, but then when we walk away from them and face the people and the relationships, application is harder. thanks for the reminder. you're helping my amnesia. :)
