I don’t know about you, but the heat and humidity has made me feel as though I were melting!
During this heat wave, I was melting chocolate candy wafers to make some goodies to give a friend for a birthday treat. Chocolate stays in it’s hardened form until heat is applied. When I brought the chocolate home from the store, I had it right by the air conditioner in the car. I learned a lesson last summer when I left chocolate in the car when going into another store. It wasn’t left for a long time, but none the less it melted into a gooey mess which became a solid block of chocolate when it got cooler.
Through this experience, the Lord was speaking to me. He was showing me that His heart is melted toward us. Then, as His heart is melted toward us, if our hearts are melted toward Him, they melt into one another. One heart. This is just like the chocolate candy wafers did in the bag last summer.
Candy wafers are so soft when melted. But when hard, they stay separate. A hard heart can’t become a part of another’s heart. Hard hearts can’t be blended together. Just as candy wafers, when hard, stay separate and can’t be combined with other hard candy wafers, so it is with our hearts.
When melted, these candy wafers become combined with one another. Not only can’t you separate them, you can’t even distinguish one from another. It’s only then can they be molded into how and what we desire them to be and become.
The Lord’s heart is melted towards us. Are you melted?
