Un-harden our hearts

Un-harden our hearts

This is what the Lord says to the people of Judah and to Jerusalem: “Break up your unplowed ground and do not sow among thorns” – Jeremia 4:3
Jeremia told the people to break up the hardness of their hearts as a plow breaks up unplowed ground – soil that has not been tilled for a season. Good kings like Josiah had tried to turn the people back to God, but the people had continued to worship their idols in secret. Their hearts had become hardened to God’s will. Unless their hearts were broken and cleaned up, the good seed of God’s commands could not take root. Old habits and hidden sins had to be uprooted and rejected. Likewise we must remove our heart-hardening sin if we expect God’s Word to take root and grow in our life.”
It’s not easy when we come across real life situations of this bible verse. The hearts have become very hardened at Buweboya and at times causes extra worry on our part. But I have hope in God because He knows it exists and is working to pull those thorns out and create a fertile land to be used for His Glory. It will take time but slowly after much digging we will break through and create a place for orphans and widows to feel safe, nurtured, loved, and informed so they can go forth and tell generations to come on how Jesus saved their village.
We know that right now we are impacting lives and that people are watching our actions and words very closely. It is through our actions that will show God’s love and turn hearts back towards him.
