H – Hearts Are Reminders {26 Surprising Ways to Encounter God, A-Z}

“Though our feelings come and go, God’s love for us does not.”
– C.S. Lewis



Hearts are our culture’s icons of love. While the heart shape as we know it is not the shape of our physical hearts, it’s the one we recognize as the center of our souls.

Try This

Scan the room you’re in right now.

  • Is there a heart or something resembling a heart right where you are?
  • Trace a heart in the air.
  • Put your hand over your own heart and listen to the beats to a count of 50.

Thank God for surrounding you with images of love.

Let them remind you of his real love for you. Send hearts today on your own communications to keep spreading his love around the world.

The greatest commandment is love. Let it be so with us today!

    I’m not seeing a heart right now, but I sure can feel my own beating! I do collect hearts though – I especially like the ones made out of stones or glass. I suppose they remind me that true love is only found by having a relationship to The Rock, the only One who sees through all my *outside* stuff to the true beat of my heart.

    Actually there is a huge red heart on my desk top so I see it everytime I open my computer. I still have a picture a missionary sent me of a perfect heart grown into a tree, I need to frame it and display it’s beauty for man did not carve this heart, God moved natures wind and rain to draw a heart into that tree. Good thought Lisa.

      I’m glad you’re seeing at least 2 hearts right now, Betty. Very cool that you have a heart on your desktop! I need to add one on mine. I have pictures of my daughter’s kindergarten students on my desktop–and they have my heart–but I should add an actual heart to the picture as well. 🙂

    Love, love, love! (get it? 😉 ) lol! I don’t think there is any coincidence in the fact that the heart and it’s representation of love is a predominant symbol in our world! “For God so loved the world!”:-)

    Thanks, friend! Love the printable, too!
