my heart has melted

Heart by seyed mostafa zamani

Lord, when my eye confronts my heart,
  and I realize that you have filled my heart with your love,
  I am breathless with amazement.
Once my heart was so small in its vision,
  so narrow in its compassion
  so weak in its zeal for truth.
Then you chose to enter my heart,
  and now in my heart I can see you,
  I can love all your people,
  and I have courage to proclaim
  the truth of your gospel
  to anyone and everyone.
Like wax before a fire,
  my heart has melted
  under the heat of your love.

Count von Zinzendorf, 1700-1760, founder of the Moravian Church


May the Lord lead your hearts into a full understanding and expression of the love of God and the patient endurance that comes from Christ.
