“Good” Hearts!

A good heart – an achievement to be sure.
One that speaks of love and care and one we say is pure.

Are there really good hearts or is the description wrongly placed?
What is in a heart shows in a person’s eyes and face.

We can strive to have a good heart and wish that it were so.
But Christ alone and only He, can change a heart where love will grow.

Examining and analyzing our own heart tells us true,
Our words speak what is held within; it’s the same for me and you.

All of us can ask our Lord to clean our heart from sin.
That can happen only when Jesus lives within.

It is a constant chore that He will gladly do,
But we must yield our hearts so He can make them fresh and new!

Every day, throughout each day (and night), this is important and necessary according to Jesus in God’s Word…Matthew 15:18 & 19 ~ “But those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and they defile a man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts….”
