Wide Open

“O Corinthians! We have spoken openly to you, our heart is wide open.”  2 Corinthians 6:11

In football, if a receiver is wide open, it’s a good thing.

Lord, may I run this race with my heart wide open for You. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Where I Reside

All your steps
I’ve ordered
and My plans for you
are sure

that you might walk
with your heart open
letting them see
My love is pure.

  4. God bless you and your witness for Him! So powerful and exciting!

  5. Hi Debbie,

    “Lord, may I run this race with my heart wide open for You.” Amen and amen! Thank you! Have a blessed day!


  6. I am going to stay focused on being a wide receiver today.

  7. 🙂 God bless you, praising Paulette, as you catch and hold onto all that He intends for you to! Thank you for your blessings and prayers. Love and prayers back at you for your day today.

  8. You make a beautiful wide receiver, Tammy! God bless you and your heart that is open to Him and to us.

  9. ““O Corinthians! We have spoken openly to you, our heart is wide open.” 2 Corinthians 6:11…”

    Our cat, Dolly (5 years old), has been our pet since she was six weeks old. Not once has she ever been hit, thrown or hurt by us. When we walk near her, she falls down and rolls over, exposing her underbelly to us. This is a cat’s way of telling us she trusts us because this is her most vulnerable area in any attacks by enemies.

    For Paul to make the above statement to the Corinthians, he was exposing his most vulnerable area, his heart. And just think Paul did this to a church, most of us consider as the wildest and most rebellious assembly in the New Testament.

    Maybe, we could learn a lot from this verse.

  10. Thank you for that really great analogy, Larry. Exposing our hearts to others is risky business, especially when they aren’t those that we really trust! Guess that’s where trusting Him comes in to guide us at these times. God bless you Larry, each time He asks you to leave your heart wide open.
    p.s. I think we have Dolly’s twin sister. Only ours has just one eye and the other has a kind of orange glaze over it most the time, so she can’t really see.

  11. Hi, Debbie–just stopped by for a fresh breath of the Holy Spirit, and to send you a loving hug from this crazy sister!! God bless you richly today!

  12. PS: Nice touch with the football reference–glad you explained it, as the game is a foreign language to me!!

  13. You are just too precious, sis of mine! I wondered if I should first check out football talk . .. but then just winged it. haha! God bless you and your wide open heart for Him!
