“Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.” Matthew 5:8
Lord, keep my heart soft
don’t let it become hardened
keep it softened to You
while you keep my face set like a flint
while you keep my feet planted like an oak
while you keep my arms reaching
out like branches
don’t let what’s happening
outside of me
get inside of me, God
guard my heart
and the innermost parts
of my being
you are my shield
you are my shield
yes Lord, you alone are my shield
My sister, I don’t know what you’re going through, but God does. If you put a woman through enough hurtful situations, she can begin to transform into someone she’s not. No matter what you’ve endured, decide right now today that your faith will remain in God, your heart will remain soft for Him and your arms will keep reaching out to help others. Keep your heart turned towards God and He will keep your heart soft towards Him.
My prayer for you…Lord, I pray for your daughter who is reading this right now. If she can relate to the poem, Lord, I pray you minister to her heart…deeply. I pray you don’t let what’s happening outside of her, get inside of her. With everything in me Father I pray you be her shield. Stand guard in her heart and in her mind. Protect her Lord. Her life is in your hands. Her heart is in your hands. Don’t let her become someone she’s not. Help her to stay true to who you made her to be in Christ. Help her discover more and more your heart for her and your character. Keep her, Father. In the name of Jesus. In the name of Jesus. In the name of Jesus.

I don’t respond as much however today I had to respond because I needed this because I found myself being cold hearted to those that acted I’ll hearted to me but I know that’s not who I was created to be. I always thank God for giving me the heart that I have because its loving and caring. I am in the world but I don’t have to be of the world! Thank you for the word that brought me instant comfort!!
In Jesus name Amen!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! God spoke through you to me. It’s what I needed to hear. Puts that hope back, lighting the fire again. Now I need to meditate on the message. I prayed the same prayer I return
God bless you & you family
Thank you. You prayed for me this morning. I tried to take back something I let go of…again. Ugh…so tired of allowing myself to act out before and pray afterward. I must remember my Lord is my Warrior. He has already won this of hell on earth battle for me. Glory to his name.. Jesus!
Side note: on more occasions than not, the timing of your devotions is, well can only be from the Author himself. I’ve gone to bed at night asking God questions and to hear his answer clearly through your devotions. I praise God for DOTK ministry…and thank him for my Princess Sisters. ☺

This is absolutely amazing! Not an hour ago,while on my treadmill, I confess to God with a declaration that my past hurts and disappointments will not dictate my future. I refuse to be enslaved by hurt or by its memories. My God is bigger than my pain and I release it to Him, who is able to do exceedingly, abundantly above all that I can think or even imagine. This piece like most is on point. Thank you for hearing what the Lord downloaded into your spirit regarding this concern.
Thank you for this prayer. I read it for myself, my daughters, and granddaughters. AMEN AMEN and AMEN, in the Name of our precious Lord Jesus Christ!

Thank you so much. I am going through a divorce right now and I needed a reminder of what’s happening on the outside does not define my heart on the inside. I’m fighting to be that woman that God has made but the one I lost so long ago. This devotion was what I needed.

Lord I thank you for your grace and mercy. Father God I thank you so much🙌. I thank God for using you and this ministry. May God conitue to bless and strengthen you. I really needed this. God knows each of our struggles. Hallelujah!! Thank you Jesus!
Father God Your love is so powerful, that it broke down the walls which were around my cold heart, many years ago. I can never stop praising and worshiping You for what only You and Your love could do. I pray that anyone who still finds herself in such a state would be touched supernaturally ,
as I was touched by Your love Father God. Love melts the hardest or coldest heart and nothing can withstand that power. I pray for breakthroughs, personel encounters or whatever is needed for anyone who has never felt Your love. In Jesus name amen.
Thank you ,father for your love and mercy. I’ve gone through so much hurt,abuse and rejection but; I decided not to allow my heart to become bitter. The lord took my pain away and gave me a new heart. I was cold and bitter, guarding my heart. I believe because of the abuse, I frequently suffered, everyone was going to hurt me. I constantly pushed people away and always saw the negative.
I thank the lord for his grace and mercy. The lord has increased my joy, I trust him.
I receive!!! Thank U & GOD Bless in JESUS NAME, AMEN.

Thank you for this. I am praying and trying to work on this in my life. I have a bad habit of hardening my heart to those who do me wrong, and shutting them out of my life. I am working on forgiving and softening my heart to show them love and let the inner beauty shine through. I continue to pray that God will help me with this. Thank you for the post. Needed this today.
Receiving this word today Lord. Hallelujah 🙆 🙌👐👏👐
Thank you so much for this. It’s as though you are speaking to me alone. I’m actually overwhelmed by what is happening to me, it’s as if God doesn’t answer my prayers anymore. It’s so difficult to hold on. The desires of my heart seem like a mirage. I pray for strength and renewed hope in the Lord.
Amen; Lord please help me.
Amen! Need this today! Bless you DOTK!
I was once so tenderhearted. After years of a heroine addicted daughter I was tired and empty. My husband was very angry and his anger found a weak spot in my shield and got inside me. I don’t like myself or anyone else so much. Forgive me Father in heaven. Rebuild my faith.
God thank you for not allowing the situation which surrounds me to consume me; Lord, thank you for blocking everything that is lingering right now, you’re my shield & strength. I’m clinking to you and I won’t let go. Have your own in the midst of it Lord. Amen 🙏 🙏
Thank you DOTK sisters for the encouragement
