You have heard it said, “Guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life”. In your brokenness and fear, you have used this to build a treacherous fortress around your heart to keep me out. I know you didn’t think it was me, but you simply didn’t look deep enough into their eyes. Had you deepened and prolonged your gaze at your brothers and sisters, you would have seen me. I am there. When you closed your heart to them in your fear, you closed your heart to me.
My sister, there is a new age coming. Haven’t you heard? Indeed, it has already begun. Yes this is an age of guarding your heart, but not in the way you have been taught. You have heard it said that you should guard your heart to keep it closed, but I say to you that you should guard your heart to keep it open. In this new age, you must guard your heart for love. Behold, an age of extravagant love is breaking in!
Love knows no separation.
Love knows no distance.
Love knows no walls.
Love knows no fear.
My love is violent. My love will attack and tear down all your walls. My love will not rest until your most fortified city is taken. Yes, sister, you must truly guard your heart to keep it open.
For I am coming to take your city.
