Hearts of Stone

This is for the many who have been wounded by abuses and have hardened their hearts to cope with the traumas. Hardened hearts not only keep us from getting hurt again, but also cause many to be callous and non-caring. The hardened exterior has to come down for healing and restoration to take place so that true love can find it’s way in also. Remember, broken hearts lead to broken starts.

Hearts of stone
are in the making
when people get hurt
and hearts are breaking.
And hearts of stone
make some cold as ice
with no compassion
nor desire to be nice.
And hearts of stone
is what lies within
when we make the choice
to continually sin.
And hearts of stone
makes some so rigid
with a deep hardness
like they are frigid.
For these hearts of stone
result from distress
when we get broken
then build a fortress.
And these hearts of stone
let nothing out or in
with a hard exterior
locking all hurt within.
And many hearts of stone
are rooted in bitterness
with anger and resentment
making some seem ruthless.
For with hearts of stone
narcissism will arise
with selfish thoughts and acts
and evil in disguise.
So these walls of stone
must be torn down
for peace and compassion
and even Love to be found.
So hearts of stone
please let your past go
so you can move on
and freedom you will know.

For hearts of stone
can be transformed
when we turn to God
and make Him our Norm.

“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” Romans 12:2

“I will give you back your health and heal your wounds,” says the Lord.
“For you are called an outcast— Jerusalem for whom no one cares.” Jeremiah 30:17

Dear Lord, only You see the hearts embedded deep within each of us. You see which hearts are so hardened that evil resides deep within with narcissism prevalent in their words, thoughts, and deeds. You see those hearts who have built walls to keep others out but it keeps the fear in. You see all who have hearts of stone and know the traumas that caused those stones to grow to protect it. I pray for total healing of all our hearts. Remove the stones from these hearts and make them pliable in Your Hands. Restore our hearts so we can accept Love and give love in return. Purify our hearts so we can used as pure vessels by You to do You Will… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

  1. been there done that….got screwed worse by so called christains….not wanting to take that step again……..rather be numb for a while

    • Hi Nessa3! I understand that. There are many wolves in sheep’s clothing in this world including many who call themselves Christians. It has become a “blanket covering” for those who pretend to be righteous… but there is a big difference in a “follower of Christ” and a Christian. I pray that you will one day meet a true “follower of Christ” who will walk as He walked and never hurt you. That is what I pray for too.
