The Heart Knows


The heart knows it's own bitterness, and a stranger does not share its joy. Proverbs 14:10

The heart knows (and is acquainted with, recognizes, is instructed by) its own (personal, individual, very own), bitterness (harshness, sourness), And a stranger (external, alien, unacquainted) does not share (experience, or have a portion of, or receive), its joy (delight, pleasure).

* Only the person with a heart of bitterness knows the pain & hardship of having a- hard bitter heart. A stranger not sharing the same heart of stone/bitterness - doesn't even know what that individual is experiencing. They can't know exactly how they feel.

Only the person with a heart of bitterness can make a choice to no longer be in that state ill well-being- because they know the pain of it. They have to want the pain to stop, leave, and heal. They have to seek freedom.

We can not see the complete condition of a person's heart without being God or that person.

We know our own pain- even if hidden deep inside, we know it's torture and we have to choose to go for our freedom in Jesus. No one can make us free, or even heal us, unless we take that first step and seek Jesus.

Pain & Issues of the Heart

Yes, my heart knows pain-

the inflictions on my soul.

My heart knows this state of misery.

Neglect, loneliness,-

The vast emptiness.

My bleeding heart hidden within.

deadly wounds,but I am still alive.

Blinded by these wounds-

Lash out -even draw back so you don't get to close.

The lie's masqueraded security.

Silent tears- sustains fears.

Unguarded heart- pain thrives.

Weak, faint- dark despair.

Unhealed- haunted.

Scroll to Continue

Heart's chambers- all in stone.

Screaming- the heartbeat of pain.

Future hope- bleak.

Past hurts- always awake & taunting.

Twisting the heart in knots-

Don't know what to do.

This heart in my chest-

No rest, peace or freedom known.

My life in pretense-

The hidden issues of my heart.

This destructive pain- I only know.

You can not come in.

It hurts to much- don't even touch.

Life's ocean -drowning heart.

My spirit feels almost gone-

Referred pain- all through my veins.

Broken heart- stealing, killing.

In search of the love that can heal my heart.

In my heart this I heard- "Jesus heals broken hearts".

"Jesus here is my heart, take all the pain away-

teach my heart love's healing"


Heart Rages

Heart rages- causing feelings of insanity.

Love's clarity- never known.

Possessing this heart- ownership denied.

All the lies, tricks and deceits-

weakens desires.

Do I fight to live- or to die.

Makes no difference-

With this pain, all remains the same.

Ate up like a disease- blackness & hate.

Outcome of heart-attack.

Body taking revenge on the contents of the heart.

Refusing the take over- screaming I want love instead!

I hate this hate,

I hate this pain,

I hate this vicious circle-

I hate it all!

The Condition of Our hearts Affects Everything

“God plants dreams in people's hearts. But many people do not continue all the way to the end in order to follow Him to the fulfillment of that dream. Many get started and quit get started and quit get started and quit. They do not continue because their broken heart overwhelms their hope. They do not have any inner strength to carry them through to the end. Jesus will bind up your wounds and heal your bruises. His Word is the medicine for your soul.”
Joyce Meyer, Beauty For Ashes: Receiving Emotional Healing

It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.

And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.

From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.

Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?

Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.

And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.John 6:63-69

  • When my heart whispered, "Seek God," my whole being replied, "I'm seeking him!" Ps 27:8
  • Stay with God! Take heart. Don't quit. I'll say it again: Stay with God.Ps 27:14
  • Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.Prov 4:23
  • A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones. Pro 17:22
  • A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.Proverbs 15:13
  • He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.Psalm 147:3
